Amazon's Breakthrough Novel Award--Cupcakes, Pies and Hot Guys makes it through the first round!
We're having a big month: first Nancy G. West's Fit To Be Dead is nominated for a Lefty, and now Booknook.biz client Pamela DuMond's Cupcakes, Pies and Hot Guys makes it through the first round of Amazon's Breakthrough Novel Award.
About the Book that we're rooting for, here at Booknook: "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.
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..."
