Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Aunt Nozzie and the women of the family are at it again.  In "Mashed in the Potatoes" the usual turkey has been replaced by another entree as well as murder.

About the Author

Lesley retired from her life as a professor of psychology and reclaimed her country roots by moving to a small cottage in the Butternut River Valley in upstate New York.  In the winter she migrates to old Florida--cowboys, scrub palmetto, and open fields of grazing cattle, a place where spurs still jingle in the post office, and gators make golf a contact sport.  Back north, the shy ghost inhabiting the cottage serves as her writing muse.  When not writing, she gardens, cooks and renovates the 1874 cottage with the help of her husband, two cats, and, of course, Fred the ghost, who gives artistic direction to their work. 
 
She is author of several mystery series, all featuring country gals with attitude: the microbrewing mystery series set in the Butternut Valley of upstate New York--A Deadly Draught and Poisoned Pairings; the Big Lake Murder Mystery series--Dumpster Dying and Grilled, Chilled and Killed; and the Eve Appel Mysteries Series,A Secondhand Murder and Dead in the Water.  Untreedreads publishes her short stories as well as a novel length mystery, Angel Sleuth.  Her most recent mystery is Murder is Academic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mixing Murder with Beloved Thanksgiving Traditions March 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A friend recommended this book to me, so I thought for 99 cents, why not?

There is something about mixing murder with beloved Thanksgiving tradition that is inherently funny to me. I especially liked the stories by Andrew MacRae & Leslie Diehl.

Thanks to the success of the first anthology, J. Alan Hartman of Untreed Reads decided to do it again. As a result the anthology "The Killer Wore Cranberry: A Second Helping" was born. The book features 17 short stories by 17 authors set around Thanksgiving in some way. After a short introduction by Jay Hartman about the books, this one in particular, it is on to the stories.

The book opens with "Reign Check" by Arthur C. Carey where George Simmons is out in his barren Iowa cornfield on a mission with his dog, Lucy. The field has been picked clean, but his wife, Emiline, wants some ears of corn for a Thanksgiving decoration. Emiline, his grown daughter, Alma, and the grandkids are back at the house working on getting the Thanksgiving dinner ready. George can't wait to get back, but things are going to conspire against him in this twisted and very funny tale.

"Thursday Night at Pins and Pub" by John Weagly follows next with Waylon Preston complaining to Billy Weston that there never is enough gravy. About the only thing Waylon does not put gravy on is pumpkin pie as he really likes gravy. In the small town of Currie Valley there just is not a lot to do. The local bowling alley having some beers is the only place the brothers have to be on Thanksgiving. Everybody knows everybody which makes the suddenly missing tip at the bar even more important.

Sheriff Mollie Goodall is back in "Justice for Elijah" written by two time Derringer winner Earl Staggs. It's Thanksgiving Day and Sheriff Mollie is covering the office while everyone is off. Her husband, Lilburn, is at home cooking which is very good thing as he loves to cook and is good at it.
