As it’s Easter Monday it’s the perfect day to welcome back Julie Lindsey! Although we hope your chocolate eggs weren’t spiced with something…memorable 😉 After gorging on chocolate, Julie’s latest book, Death by Chocolate is the perfect antidote and is the in the first in her Killer Confections series.
Okay so this time I’m on the Death by Chocolate blog tour, which means no romance talk! The lady in this novel killed her husband and she’s not feeling super awful about it. LOL. In Death by Chocolate, an idea I got in church grew legs and took off. Dead serious.
I was watching these church ladies ladle chicken soup into Styrofoam containers. Everyone thanked them and hugged them and smiled. I sipped my soup and wondered what those ladies were like at home. What about when they took off their simple suits and took the pins from their hair? Did they light up a smoke and toss back a brandy? If they did, how would anyone ever know? What if one of them was a drug dealer? How cool would that be? (I mean of course totally not because drugs are back. Crack is whack. Just say no and things kids.) BUT those sweet little church ladies could really cause a lot of damage and get away with it. No one would suspect them and they know everyone.
Ruby Russell was born.
Ruby’s an emotional mess. Kind of bumbling. A nervous ninny. So, bless her heart everything she does goes – w.r.o.n.g. But what’s a best friend if she won’t help you cover a few murders? Am I right? So, there you go. Death by Chocolate was written and now it’s here : ) and I am a little bouncy.
I thought I’d share an excerpt or the trailer before I go away and plot something else completely insane. I’ll let the ladies decide what they want to include, but I hope if you pick up Death by Chocolate, you will put it down smiling.
Ruby Russell has reached her limit. When she discovers her hipster husband has a dirty little secret, she whips him up a Viagra-infused-chocolate mousse punishment, but in the morning, her husband’s a stiff. Armed with a lifetime of crime show reruns and Arsenic and Old Lace on DVD, Ruby and her best friend Charlotte try to lay low until after Ruby’s son’s wedding, but a nosy therapist, meddling minister and local news reporter are making it very difficult to get away with murder.
I am a mother of three, wife to a sane person and Ring Master at the Lindsey Circus. Most days you’ll find me online, amped up on caffeine & wielding a book.

As always, we love Julie’s blog posts and can’t wait to read this book. We might get some ideas from it ourselves… be warned guys.
