JALAPENO CUPCAKE WENCH
AMAZING GRACIE TRILOGY, BOOK 1
A hot and spicy taste of murder—and more.
During the day, law enforcement consultant Gracie Hofner is on assignment at a small San Antonio bakery, waiting for a delivery. No one knows what it is or when it will arrive. The upside? Working next to Donovan Beck, a flirty hunk and a half—perfect fling material.
At night, Gracie resumes her search for a little girl and her mother who went missing following a double murder. Finding the pair is imperative or the girl will become a target.
At the girl’s aunt’s house, Gracie experiences a peculiar need to leave immediately. She tries to deny the urge to flee and pushes the pressure aside, but the compulsion intensifies. Gracie thinks she must have a brain tumor. Or is losing her mind. When similar events continue to occur, Gracie sees a pattern. Can she use this newfound ability to help her find the girl and her mother before it’s too late?
Carol Kilgore is the author of Jalapeno Cupcake Wench, the first book in The Amazing Gracie Trilogy, and three romantic suspense novels: In Name Only, Solomon’s Compass, and Secrets of Honor. She’s married, with dogs, and lives in San Antonio, the setting for the trilogy.
Where to connect with Carol:
The idea of #InkRipples is to toss a word, idea, image, whatever into the inkwell and see what kind of ripples it makes. We provide the topics and will be blogging about them on the first Monday of the month. You can spread your own ripples by blogging about the topic any day of the month that fits your schedule, just be sure to include links back to the three of us please (Katie, Kai, and Mary).
This month's topic is Heroes and Villains.
I'm going to keep it short and list five favorite heroes and villains. What's curious is that there is only one female in the group. I need to think about that.
Odysseus - because he loved his wife
Don Quixote - because he wanted to right wrongs
Robin Hood - because he fought injustice
Atticus Finch - because he fought injustice
Winnie the Pooh - because he loved and accepted everyone
Big Nurse - because she was so subtle in her evilness
Professor Moriarty - because he was so wickedly brilliant
Iago - because he was so heinously deceitful
Long John Silver - because he was a pirate!
Sauron - because he's SO evil we never even see him (except of course for his eye...)
Excited for Carol? Gracie sounds like a great character! Got a favorite hero or villain? Hope you'll share.
