It's one of those times when I feel special. I'm reading a book that isn't published yet! I'm currently reading No Mallets Intended by Victoria Hamilton. This book, the fourth in her Vintage Kitchen Mystery series, will be released November 4th. Be sure to check out my review which I'll post on the blog November 6th...a special Thursday post.
Jaymie Leighton and the Queensville Heritage Society are restoring Dumpe Manor to serve as a museum and office space for the group. While working on her contribution-turning the kitchen into a Depression era version of itself-Jaymie hears something. She tries to ignore it-but it turns out to be a person, a person who hits Jaymie with a vintage kitchen mallet and knocks her out cold! That's just the start of the problems surrounding Dumpe Manor. An egotistical writer (who appears to be out to smear the Dumpe family in the pamplet he's writing for the society), a woman scorned, and angry Dumpe descendants combine with the threat that the Manor will be taken from the society lead to murder. The body... a victim of yet another vintage kitchen mallet.
