How many types of gratitude do you think exist? Three? Five? Seven?

We’re not sure either–but we do know who we are grateful to this week. Here’s a heartfelt THANK YOU! to the generous authors who shared their blogs with us (and Emma) this week.



Gina Briganti — Gina is VERY generous–so generous that she shared our cozy mystery on two of her blogs! Visit and for Gina’s revisions to our pear crumble recipe. You can find Gina’s books on Amazon — she writes both fiction and nonfiction.





Sharon Ledwith — Sharon has a heart as big as her smile and was kind enough to share an excerpt from our cozy mystery. Sharon also has a new release this month, Lost and Found, the first book in her teen psychic mystery series, Mysterious Tales From Fairy Falls. If you love animals, this is one book we know you’ll enjoy.




Sloane Taylor — Blog mistress and cook extraordinaire — and she likes our ice cream! Hop over to Sloane’s blog for our ice cream recipe and an excerpt from our cozy mystery. Romance lovers beware–you won’t be able to resist Sloane’s books!





CD Hersh — CD — or as we know them, C & D — shared our pear crumble recipe and an excerpt from our cozy mystery on their blog as this week’s Friday Feature. A husband/wife writing duo, CD Hersh writes paranormal romances, including The Turning Stone Chronicles series.





Emilia Mancini — featured our blueberry ice cream recipe and an excerpt from our cozy mystery on her blog this week. Emilia writes spicy romances.



Thanks again to all our author and reader friends!


***** ABOUT THE AUTHOR *****

HL Carpenter is the pen name of a Florida-based mother/daughter duo who writes from their studios in Carpenter Country, a magical place that, like their stories, is unreal but not untrue. When they’re not writing, the Carpenters enjoy exploring the Land of What-If and practicing the fine art of Curiosity.

Fiction by HL Carpenter:

Jack and The Fountain of Youth. Some people say the Fountain of Youth is a myth. Jack Ponsi Dileonardo Thomas knows better.

The SkyHorse. Fourteen year old Tovi thinks finding a flying horse is fabulous luck–until a mysterious stranger says finders aren’t always keepers.

Dream Stealer. Is stealing a dream better than losing your own?

Walled In. When her father is accused of fraud, seventeen year old Vandy Spencer discovers her entire life has been built on a heart-shattering deception.

Pirate Summer. When her brother disappears, Josey is sure she knows where he’s gone. And the only way to bring him home is to travel two hundred years into the past with a boy she can’t trust.

A Cause for Murder. Someone at Happy Haven is a killer. Septuagenarian sleuth Emma Twiggs navigates madcap mayhem, multiple mysteries, and murderous motives to discover who has a cause for murder.
