Betsy also penned a novel based upon her column but it hasn't had much of an audience yet and she is desperate to get the news out. So, when her Editor assigns a original creative cooking contest at the mall for her to participate in, Betsy sees it as an opportunity to get her title recognized at least locally.
Betsy isn't the only columnist at the paper though, snobbish fashionista Vanessa Markham, also book published is attending. Betsy does have one friend at the competition though, her friend, Patti of PattiCake's, also dislikes the clever Vanessa.
Then, the head librarian comes to meet and fawn over chick-lit Vanessa (pen name Scarlett,) and invites her to 'Authors Night' at the Library. Vanessa for reasons unknown insists that Betsy be included and with great reluctance the librarian agrees.
Surrounded with Vampires, UFO enthusiasts, romance and more, Betsy waits her turn to expound about her helpful household book. When Vanessa doesn't show for the second evening Betsy hopes for a chance to give her small speech. However, during the recess, Betsy finds more than she expects...a body...of Vanessa. Now, she is the main suspect and the need to solve the crime.
I truly enjoyed this book. Betsy has guts, to be inelegant, and credibility. I also enjoy the other characters in the book. The Down Syndrome cousin, Danny is done with respectability and caring.
I laughed and found myself shocked by the several plot endings in the book. I look forward to reading the third novel.
I see there are several others out now in the series that I haven't read. Off to add them to my kindle!
