Recipe for Killing
Book 2 coming August 18
After solving the first murder to occur in her small town in over fifty years, all amateur sleuth and café owner, Shawna Taylor, wanted to do was help her recipe club prepare for Bisbee, Arizona’s chocolate extravaganza.

The real life Bisbee, Arizona is the inspiration for the series’ location. Debbie’s hometown is an old copper mining town nestled in Tombstone Canyon where homes cling to the mountainsides like bighorn sheep. Once called Little San Francisco, Bisbee was the biggest town between St. Louis and San Francisco during the copper boom over the turn of the 20th century. Both of her grandfathers worked in the Copper Queen Mine, and as a young child, her mom once lived where the Lavender Pit is today. Today the town is home to a population of just over 5,000 people, and it is a tourist town and artist’s community. For a small town, there’s always something interesting going on in Bisbee.
