What in the heck happened to the nice fall weather we've been having? I think this past weekend was the hottest of the summer but I do think we are on a cooling trend now that the weekend is behind us. I hope so. I'm ready for cozy fires and walks along the lake as the aspens turn golden and the geese fly south for the winter.

Twelve friends went to an apple farm for a day of apple picking and relaxation. Each friend brought a different dish to share at the communal picnic. While fun was had by all in the beginning, by the end of the day one friend had fallen from a ladder, one had suffered a serious sunburn, and one got sick from eating too many green apples. Use the clues presented on September 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, and 30th to figure out which friend fell from a ladder, which suffered a sunburn, and which ate too many apples and got sick. A rafflecopter will be provided on September 30th for you to provide your answer.
Dishes they brought to share:
Corn on the cob
Kenny brought sliced ham while Bethany brought hot dogs
George did not fall from a ladder and Tom did not get a sunburn
Hannah brought macaroni salad
Tom brought brownies and Shelley brought cupcakes
This week I'm helping my friend Diana Orgain promote her Internal Instincts Mystery Series. I read this book back when it first published so I can say with certainty that it's a really fun book.
Blurb: The only thing harder than solving a murder… …is giving birth.
A body has been dredged from the San Francisco Bay. Kate Connolly, pregnant and ready to pop, has reason to fear it may be her long lost brother-in-law. When a private investigator begins nosing around, Kate decides on a new career path. Battling sleep deprivation, diaper blowouts and breastfeeding mishaps she muddles through her own investigation, Mommy style:
1. Find Killer
2. Figure out hideous breast pump.
3. Avoid cranky cop.
4. Send out Make birth announcements.
5. Buy pink paper for the birth announcements.
5. FIND KILLER
Family life has never been so exciting, but after Kate launches her own female detective agency, she may just get more than she bargained for.
Full of suspense, this cozy is unputdownable!
"Engaging…[A] charming debut thriller.”
--Publishers Weekly "If you were expecting warm and cute you'll be mistaken. Fast paced and fun, this book gives a true feel of the modern mom, trying to juggle motherhood and career (when that career happens to be solving crimes)."
--Rhys Bowen, New York Times Bestselling Author
