Welcome to the HOLLY JOLLY Giveaway Hop (runs December 1 - December 15, 2019) hosted by MamatheFox.

Last month, I stopped by Kensingston Books' All Things Cozy meet-up in California. I was suffering with jet lag, but managed to talk with a number of cozy mystery authors. I will be featuring some of the authors from the meet-up on Readeropolis throughout the month of December. Be sure to stop by the blog often to check them out.

Author Maria DiRico gave me an advance reader's copy of her upcoming release, Here Comes the Body at the meet-up. It is the first book in her new cozy mystery series. I am reading it right now! It includes some yummy sounding Italian recipes.


Introducing the Catering Hall Mystery series starring newly single Mia Carina returning to her Queens neighborhood, living with her nonna and her cat, and trying to help her mobster father turn his catering hall into a legitimate business - until a death spoils her plan...

Here Comes the Body will be released in March 2020 and is available for pre-order now. You can check it out on Amazon.com hereThis hop stop's prize is inspired by the book.

We knead to talk. Did you know many cookbooks get released in the fall, just ahead of the holidays? When I came across Everyday Fancy by Courtney Lapresi (the winner of MasterChef Season 5) in a store, I thought about Mia Carina. I figured it was meant to be and purchased a copy. 

"With delicious food and great company, every meal can be a reason to celebrate." - Everyday Fancy  



December is the busiest shopping season, the busiest celebration season, and gift-giving season for me. From birthdays to holidays, I feel like a teeny weeny tiny version of Oprah Winfrey when she gave away those cars on her talk show, "You get a car, you get a car, you get a car."

No silly, I give away books - not cars. I said a teeny 
weeny tiny version. 

Readeropolis is giving away a hardcover copy of Everyday Fancy: 65 Easy, Elegant Recipes for Meals, Snacks, Sweets, and Drinks by Courtney Lapresi (new with bookstore remainder mark), one donut note card (blank inside) and a secret love book charm at this giveaway hop stop (US only, 18+ years, see terms and conditions in giveaway widget).

  

Amazon.com Book Description:
The number-one prime-time summer program on FOX, MasterChef, is a nationwide competition to find the best home cook in the country. The judges are some of cooking’s biggest stars—award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay, restaurateur and winemaker Joe Bastianich, and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot. The prize? A chance to win $250,000—and a cookbook deal.
This book celebrates the food of Season 5 winner, Courtney Lapresi. Courtney came out as a firecracker, blowing the judges away time and again with her skills and confidence. She is a home cook who knows how to make decadence approachable, and that’s exactly what she’s done here. The book showcases the dishes that propelled Courtney to victory, such as her flawless honey cake with berry coulis and vanilla whipped cream; duck breast with sumac, faro, and morels; and her family recipe for pizza. The recipes are introduced by headnotes that offer anecdotes about Courtney’s childhood and insights into how she became the dazzling winner of MasterChef Season 5. The book will be a delight for home cooks and MasterChef fans everywhere.
