About the author . . .             

Teresa Trent wasn't born in Texas but after a few glasses of sweet tea and some exceptional barbecue she decided to stay. With a father in the Army, she found herself moved all over the world, settling down for awhile in her teens in the state of Colorado. Her writing was influenced by all of the interesting people she found in small towns and the sense of family that seemed to be woven through them all. Teresa is a former high school teacher and received her degree from The University of Northern Colorado.  Teresa is presently working on the third book in her Pecan Bayou Series.  Her second book, Overdue For Murder, came out in June of 2012.

Reader Review . . . 

Betsy Livingston, author of The Happy Hinter blog and column for the Pecan Bayou Gazette, has been included in an authors' presentation at the local library.  She has already had a very public fracas with one of the authors, and when there is a murder at the library, Betsy is the prime suspect.  It is up to her, along with her father, to clear her name.  

Teresa Trent has written another wonderfully cozy mystery set in Pecan Bayou, one of those quaint small towns so popular in fiction.  Betsy, a single mom raising her son alone and just beginning to date, is a likeable character that many readers will find familiar.  Reading these books is like a visit with a good friend; a good friend whose cake fiasco was laugh-out-loud familiar to this blogger.
