The Great Chili Kill-Off
Publication Date: July 2017
The chili in Texas is red-hot . . . and so is murder!
Phyllis, Sam, Carolyn, and Eve head for West Texas to compete in a Fourth of July chili cookoff. Thousands of people have descended on a sleepy little ghost town, turning it into a boomtown for chili mavens, gamblers, musicians, and media. Raucous excitement fills the air, but so does chili when a sabotaged propane cooker explodes, killing the much-hated current champion. The victim leaves behind a tangled trail of sleeping with other men’s wives, cheating at cards – and maybe at chili cooking – and deadly anger. With Sam a possible suspect in the murder, emotions run hot as a bowl of Texas red as Phyllis has to untangle these threads in order to put her finger on the killer!
Livia J. Washburn's beloved Fresh Baked Mystery series is back with another novel full of tasty recipes, dastardly doings, and brilliant sleuthing by Phyllis Newsom and her friends. THE GREAT CHILI KILL-OFF is a delicious dish of murder and detection.

The Fourth Delilah Dickinson Literary Tour Mystery
Delilah takes a tour group to Key West, Florida, to visit the house where Ernest Hemingway lived and wrote during the Thirties, along with all the tropical attractions that Key West has to offer. Key West is a funky but beautiful place, of course, but then death intrudes when one of the tourists appears to commit suicide by killing himself with a shotgun in what seems to be an attempt to recreate Hemingway’s suicide. Naturally, though, the “suicide” turns out to be murder, and once more Delilah finds herself trying to find a killer. Nazi spies? U-boats run aground on Caribbean islands? Buried treasure? Modern-day pirates and drug smugglers? Delilah will have her hands full sorting out this one.
