Today I'm interviewing cozy mystery writer Darci Hannah about her wonderful series called The Beacon Bakeshop Mysteries.
"After catching her celebrity chef fiancé sizzling in the arms of another woman, Lindsey Bakewell left big city Wall Street for small town Beacon Harbor, Michigan to pursue her own passion as a pastry baker—and gets mixed up in someone’s sweet taste of revenge..."
This is a fantastic series full of great characters, a cozy setting, intriguing mysteries - add a small dash of the supernatural (Lindsey's lighthouse might be haunted! - but aren't they all?) and you have the perfect recipe for a delicious new series.
Ok, puns aside, this was a fun interview. Darci and I chat about all kinds of things - her books, her writing life, those awkward google searches mystery writers make, cooking, ghosts, pets, and of course lots of book recommendations!
