Fogged Inn

by Karen Rose Smith,
Mary McHugh &

This week we have some more recipes from mystery novels, and this time we were looking for some great recipes for your Father’s Day dinner! We have one from Silence of the Lamps by Karen Rose Smith, and one from Bossa Novas, Bikinis, and Bad Ends by Mary McHugh, and finally one from Fogged Inn by Barbara Ross. We will also be giving away copies of Silence of the Lamps and Fogged Inn (we just gave away a copy of the other book last week.) Details at the end of this post on how to enter to win, and a link you can use to purchase the books.

It’s to ask why there’s a body in the refrigerator.
