In Seattle’s Pike Place Market, Spice Shop owner Pepper Reece is savoring her business success, but soon finds her plans disrupted by a killer in the latest from the national bestselling author of Guilty as Cinnamon. Pepper Reece’s to-do list is longer than the shopping list for a five-course dinner, as she conjures up spice blends bursting with seasonal flavor, soothes nervous brides fretting over the gift registry, and crosses her fingers for a rave review from a sharp-tongued food critic. Add to the mix a welcome visit from her mother, Lena, and she’s got the perfect recipe for a busy summer garnished with a dash of fun. While browsing in the artists’ stalls, Pepper and Lena drool over stunning pottery made by a Market newcomer. But when Lena recognizes the potter, Bonnie Clay, as an old friend who disappeared years ago, the afternoon turns sour. To Pepper’s surprise, Bonnie seems intimately connected to her family’s past. After Bonnie is murdered only days later, Pepper is determined to uncover the truth. But as Pepper roots out long-buried secrets, will she be digging her own grave?
Senior citizen James P. Dandy and his lady friend, Dodee Swish, do not expect their second trip to a Baltimore, Maryland, elderhostel class to be filled with the murder and mayhem of their previous bonsai class, but they find they are quite wrong when chefs start dying all around them. Reprint.
The problem with books on writing is that they are often difficult to read. Does that sound right? Shouldn't good writing be easy to read? And if we are trying to teach easy reading writing, shouldn't our books on writing be easy reading? Here's the challenge. Slap an eye on any page of Easy Reading Writing, or browse the book. If you have trouble reading anything, hey, place it back on the shelf. It means I don’t know what I’m talking about. Easy Reading Writing is full of examples, humorous and irrelevant, yet explain the fine points of building believable plots, characters that breathe, and effective sentences, paragraphs, chapters that pass through the reader's eye as smoothly as a film strip passes through a movie projector. Our job is not to tell a story, but to use the words that will trigger the memory and life experiences of our readers, so they will build our world inside their heads. Our writing must never be just good enough. Either it's the best we can make it or it's not. There is no backdoor to effective writing. Better to read light Easy Reading Writing than to curse the darkness of rejections.
Originally published in London in 1775, One Thousand Valuable Secrets was Americanized and published in Philadelphia in 1795 in an effort to help the newly established United States become self-sufficient from Europe. As stated in the preface, the purpose of the American edition was to “promote industry and stimulate genius” and will hopefully have been “received as an acceptable contribution.” Covering everything from engraving, “break[ing] an iron bar as big as the arm,” and making varnishes to imitating precious stones, preparing dyes, gilding, brewing, cooking, and creating molds, One Thousand Valuable Secrets “will be equally profitable to every reader, who wishes to be acquainted with a number of curious and useful receipts, applicable to the common occasions of life.” With its one thousand different instructions for practical and helpful arts, this weighty tome has both cultural significance in the information it provides and historical significance in its purpose of helping the United States become truly independent in its economy and culture. This edition of One Thousand Valuable Secrets, in the Elegant and Useful Arts was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the society is a research library documenting the lives of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection comprises approximately 1,100 volumes.
