About Connie Shelton

Connie Shelton has been writing for more than twenty years and has taught writing (both fiction and nonfiction) since 2001. She is the author of the Charlie Parker mystery series and has been a contributor to several anthologies, including Chicken Soup For the Writer's Soul.

"My husband and I love to do adventures. He flew helicopters for 35 years, a career that I've borrowed from in my Charlie Parker mysteries. We have traveled quite a lot and now divide our time between the American Southwest and a place on the Sea of Cortez. For relaxation I love art -- painting and drawing can completely consume me. I also really enjoy cooking, with whatever ingredients I find in whatever country we are in at the moment. We walk every day and love watching and photographing wildlife."

Review by: Alex Fairfax on April 30, 2013 :
WARNING: Do not read this book if you are on a diet! Samantha Sweet, the heroine of this entertaining tale, is a baker by trade and inclination, and the book is full of loving descriptions of her creations, starting with a triple-chocolate cupcake with chocolate butter cream on the very first page of chapter one. But Sam also looks after empty houses and checking out one of those leads her into investigating a suspicious death, with the help of a mysterious box she has been left by an elderly lady …

This is a gentle book, softly-paced and involving very real people. Sam, her daughter Kelly, and her is-he-is-he-not? love interest, Deputy Sheriff Beau Cardwell, are the sort of people you might meet and like everyday. Perhaps the villains of the piece are slightly less well-imagined than the sympathetic characters, and occasionally the gentle pace dips too much causing a lapse in tension, but overall this is a delightful read and the supernatural element is very delicately and convincingly done.

I’m just off to get the next one in the series …
