Our feature today is on author Polly Holmes and her new book, Cupcakes and Conspiracy.
I try and read as much as I can, time permitting. Working full-time as well as writing sometimes leaves little space for reading. My aim when I’m reading is to read the genres that I’m writing. With a focus on cozy mysteries, I tend to read Leighann Dobbs, Molly Fitz, Annabel Chase.
Tell us about your book...
I loved writing Betty’s story in Cupcakes and Conspiracy. Betty Brookson is passionate about her home town of Ashton Point and when it’s threatened she isn’t one to keep quiet. Standing up to a business developer, Derek Pantell Betty strongly voices her objections to his ideas off progress. But when he is found brutally attacked, she becomes the main suspect. Betty is inspired by my late mother. She loved unconditionally and was loved by everyone. When Betty’s broken-hearted granddaughter Charlotte arrives, she can think of nothing else but to comfort her. Teaming up, they both tackle the accusations together to find the real culprit facing danger head on.
