Enjoy some Mayhem & Magic!
Our blog is meant to evoke fun with the magic of myths, folklore, movies and the mayhem of murder and madness. We have to keep it interesting so if you like different genres of movies and books then you're at the right blog. Our authors are a wide range of experts and our readers know what is top of the line in their favorite genres. Sometimes we post recipes that might be fun to try if a culinary author has one in her book that we think is especially yummy or one that Terri and I have created and want to share with you. Enjoy Guest Blogger Alice Duncan's monthly muse on her books and writing mysteries.
Plus you won't want to miss our book reviews, author interviews or our guest bloggers. So grab your favorite beverage then join us for some magic and mayhem! The good news is that you don't have to leave the house or your comfy chair. We have something for everyone's taste and every month we have a different topic for our bloggers: ones we feel that might be useful in your own writing and reader points of view. Not to mention, life in general. So join us and be sure to have a notebook handy as your to-be-read pile will grow as you add books, recipes, movies and t.v. series you won't want to miss.

Review - Cooking Up Murder by Miranda Bliss
Publisher: Berkley (November 7, 2006)
Annie and Eve are best friends. And when Eve signs them up for a cooking class she has no idea how crazy her life would become. Annie is a horrible cook and has one challenge after another in the class. But that's not all, after witnessing some arguments after class, they stumble across a body. And then they get to investigating, especially since Eve's ex is the detective investigating the crime and they want to show him up. Oh, and Annie really likes the hot Scottish cooking instructor too.
All in all, Annie and Eve really put the amateur in amateur sleuthing. They have their minds set going in and miss clue after clue. A few times I wanted to smack them. But they are likeable characters and hopefully learn from their mistakes in the next book.
