Blog Tour and Giveaway - Silence of the Jams by Gayle Leeson

Happy Thursday! Silence of the Jams (A Down South Cafe) by Gayle Leeson was released on April 4th. Book two in the series and the best one yet. The characters are well developed as friends you would visit and the story is so well written you feel like you are in Winter Garden Virginia. I got so involved in this story that time flew by and the book was over. Looking forward to the next one in this series.

In the latest Southern cozy from the author of The Calamity Café, small-town chef Amy Flowers can’t take her freedom for granted when she’s served up as a murder suspect…

It’s Independence Day in Winter Garden, Virginia, and the residents are gearing up for their annual celebration. The Down South Café is open and flourishing, and Amy Flowers is busy making pies and cakes for the holiday. The only thorn in her side is Chamber of Commerce director George Lincoln, who is trying to buy the café so he can tear it down and build a B&B on the site.

When George collapses while eating at the Down South, everybody assumes it’s a heart attack—until the autopsy declares it to be poisoning. Now, it’s up to Amy to prove her innocence before her liberty is lost.

Includes delicious Southern recipes!

We are visiting Winter Garden Virginia in the newest book of the Down South Cafe. Amy and her friends are ready for a celebration and all the fun that comes with, except murder. To clear her name as suspect Amy has to do all she can to find out who the killer is and get back to her much needed baking.This is such a fun series you will want to add it to your reading list.

  12. In this fashion my acquaintance Wesley Virgin's autobiography launches in this shocking and controversial video.

    As a matter of fact, Wesley was in the military-and soon after leaving-he found hidden, "SELF MIND CONTROL" secrets that the CIA and others used to get everything they want.

    These are the exact same methods lots of celebrities (especially those who "became famous out of nowhere") and top business people used to become wealthy and famous.

    You've heard that you use less than 10% of your brain.

    That's really because most of your brain's power is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Perhaps this conversation has even occurred INSIDE OF YOUR own brain... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's brain seven years back, while driving an unlicensed, trash bucket of a car without a driver's license and in his bank account.

    "I'm very fed up with going through life payroll to payroll! When will I finally succeed?"

    You've been a part of those those questions, am I right?

    Your very own success story is going to start. All you need is to believe in YOURSELF.
