ABNA Novel Competition QUARTERFINALIST - 2013!

Publishers Weekly Review:

At the relentless urging of her mother, Annie Graceland, a 30-something soon-to-be-divorced baker living in Los Angeles, heads to her hometown of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, to help judge the first annual Hot Guys competition in this blithe and funny contemporary cozy mystery.... There's a large cast of characters... which includes a smarmy former boyfriend, and a fussy old teacher, but it's Annie who shines in some laugh-out-loud moments, making this novel a pleasant... romp.

NEW BOOK COVER ALERT! Don't buy this book if you already bought the edition with the red and blue striped cover.  That said...

Annie Graceland's a baker with a pinch of psychic ability. She's empathic—can feel other people's lusts and desires in her own body. No biggie if she experiences someone else's cravings for dark chocolate or a foot massage. But Annie's recently acquired a spookier skill—she can see and talk to ghosts. Much to her dismay, they can also talk to her—nagging her incessantly to solve their murders. 

In the third installment of this popular, hilarious mystery series, Annie's happily dating hunky Detective Raphael Campillio in Los Angeles, when her mom signs her up to be a judge at Wisconsin's first annual Hot Guys Contest. Who cares if it's 4th of July weekend with scorching temperatures? It's a free trip home to Wisconsin. She can visit family and friends on someone else's dime. What could possibly go wrong? 

When hometown Hot Guy, Mr. Oconomowoc, is killed and doesn't pass to the Afterlife, he begs Annie to investigate his murder. Now she's not only a pageant judge, but also meddling with suspects that include her former high school rival, an old boyfriend, Hot Guy contestants, a supermodel and a mysterious illegal betting ring. It doesn't help that Detective Jamie Ryan, a boy from Annie's past, is all grown up, sexy as sin, and determined to make her fall for him. 

Annie’s about to discover that going back home could be sweet as frosting or a cake wreck. The temperature's rising at the Hot Guys Contest...
