Burned to a Crisp
Book One of The Gingerbread Hag Mystery Series
Nestled deep in the sleepy heart of Enumclaw - a little town in Washington state - Hedy Leckermaul owns a bakery renowned for its strange, sugary confections. Unbeknownst to the town, she also hosts mysterious visitors. Hedy, Adelaide the ghost, and Hedy's menagerie of animals, offer a place of safety to Enumclaw's supernatural travelers. Life in the little town in the shadow of Mount Rainier may appear picturesque, but things are often not as they seem.
Peace and tranquility rarely last, and it isn't long before arson and abduction rock the friendly town, turning the bakery's world upside down. Hedy must think fast when one of her own is now in danger. She has to solve the mystery before it is too late - seconds count before you are Burned to a Crisp.
If you like mysteries with talking animals, paranormal cozy stories, fairy tales, mythology and a hefty dose of cookies, you'll love Burned to a Crisp.
Burned to a Crisp is a creative and inventive mystery spun against the backdrop of the Pacific Northwest. This well-conceived yarn keeps the reader guessing with a unique cast of characters both human and mythological.

Diversity and tolerance are two of the book’s biggest themes, and though it wasn’t the author’s goal to write a book focusing on those virtues, the spirit of the times led Miltimore down that path.
