RELEASE DATE: August 27, 2019
Val Deniston is catering the debut of Bayport’s newest bookstore–but the death of a customer is about to draw her into a real-life murder mystery …
Suzette Cripps has been occupying a spare bedroom at Val’s granddad’s house while she takes classes in this Maryland Eastern Shore town–but she’s always seemed a little secretive and fearful, and any talk about her past is a closed book.
After winning the costume contest at the Halloween-themed bookstore party, Suzette is mowed down by a hit-and-run driver–and Val and her grandfather start to wonder whether it was really an accident or if someone was after Suzette. Granddad is a little distracted by his new enterprise as a ghost-buster, but as Val talks to Suzette’s coworkers and fellow creative writing students, she grows more convinced that the dead woman’s demons weren’t imaginary–and that she needs to rip the mask off a killer …
Includes delicious five-ingredient recipes!
SWEET POTATO ROUNDS WITH GOAT CHEESE, CRANBERRIES, AND NUTS
from Maya Corrigan
This makes a good autumn appetizer or side dish. It’s easy to make and healthy to eat.
- An elongated unpeeled sweet potato, scrubbed and cut into 1⁄4-inch rounds, about 2 inches in diameter or smaller
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄2 cup dried cranberries, chopped
- 4 ounces goat cheese at room temperature
- 1⁄2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Spread the olive oil on a rimmed baking sheet.
Lay the rounds on the sheet in a single layer, and then flip them so both sides are oiled.
Put the pan on the middle rack in the oven and bake for 8 minutes. Flip the rounds and bake for another 5 minutes or until the potatoes are soft.
Remove the rounds from the oven, top them with goat cheese, and sprinkle them with a mixture of chopped cranberries and nuts.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
Yield: Serves 4 (may vary depending on the size of the sweet potato)
