Blog Tour and giveaway- The Final Tap by Amanda Flower

I am always thrilled to have Amanda Flower visit my blog. Her newest book in the Living History Museum Mystery series released on May 8th.


Kelsey Taps for Something Much Deadlier Than Sap

March on Barton Farm can only mean one thing: maple sugar season. To combat the winter slump, resilient director Kelsey Cambridge organizes a Maple Sugar Festival, complete with school visits, pancake breakfasts, and a tree-tapping class. She hires curmudgeonly maple sugar expert Dr. Conrad Beeson to teach the workshop, despite misgivings over his unpleasant demeanor. It’s a decision Kelsey ends up regretting when, before the first tree can be tapped for sap, Dr. Beeson turns up dead. His death threatens to shut down not only the festival, but also Barton Farm itself. Kelsey has no choice but to tap for the truth and solve the murder to escape an increasingly sticky situation.

At the start of the second book in the Living Mystery series we visit Barton Farm for the Maple Sugar Festival and things are beginning to get busy for Kelsey. She is in charge of the festivities and want to make sure things run smoothly. But when when of their own, Dr. Beeson is killed things take a turn and she finds herself busier than ever trying to find out who the killer is and why. This historical whodunit is a sure hit and will have you on the edge of your seat guessing who the killer is until the very end.
