FIRST IN A NEW SERIES Meet Dani Greene--a fourth-generation maple syrup maker dealing with a first-class troublemaker... The annual pre-Thanksgiving pancake-eating contest is a big event in Sugar Grove, New Hampshire. It's sponsored by the Sap Bucket Brigade, aka the firefighters auxiliary, and the Greene family farm provides the syrup. But when obnoxious outsider Alanza Speedwell flops face first into a stack of flapjacks during the contest, Greener Pastures' syrup falls under suspicion. Dani knows the police--including her ex-boyfriend--are barking up the wrong tree, and she's determined to pull her loved ones out of a very sticky situation. The odds may be stacked against her, but she's got to tap the real killer before some poor sap in her own family ends up trading the sugar house for the Big House...
About the Author
As a nearly lifelong resident of the Granite State, Jessie Crockett naturally adores black flies, 98 percent humidity, killing frosts in August, and snowbanks taller than the average grandmother. When not working on her next murderous adventure, she enthusiastically putters in her greenhouse, designs bento lunches, and throws parties. She delights in mentoring young writers at a local elementary school. Jessie lives with her husband and children in a village so small, many other New Hampshire residents have never heard of it.
