The name of Lemon’s sleuth is Ida Noe, a fact which our heroine finds irritating since, as many people point out, her name sounds rather similar to that overused phrase, I dunno. And since she’s never married, it’s a burden she’s had to bear all her life.
As you have perhaps guessed, Maple Syrup Murder features humor as well as mayhem within its pages. But when faced with a friend who she believes is being framed for the murder of a maple sap reviewer, Ida stiffens her spine and goes to work to prove the town’s darling young policeman wrong. Of course in a tourist rich spot like Cider Island, murder is not on the merchants’ list of top attractions. So the pressure is on everyone to get this case solved
Maple Syrup Murder is a lark, and I’m sure readers will be looking forward to future installments.
Hi, I’m Melanie Hart, the newly-minted crime solver and ace reporter being created by mystery writer Anna Drake. My first episode isn’t out yet. My creator, the slow poke, is still writing it. Sometimes I have to give her a kick in her behind to get into gear. Ugh. Anyway, please watch for my release. I’ll do what I can to keep my author-child tooling along and writing good stuff. But you know how it goes. Some days are better than others. In the meantime, let me treat you to a view of my first book’s cover.
