ScorchedEggs_coverDear Reader,

I’m thrilled to bring you Scorched Eggs, the 6th book in my New York Times bestselling Cackleberry Club Mysteries. This is a book you can identify with – from my entrepreneurial main characters, to the small town setting of the Cackleberry Club café. With pacing that moves like a thriller, a ripped-from-the-headlines story, and a carefully drawn sense of place, many readers tell me a Cackleberry Club Mystery is comfort food for the mind. And they’re just as enthusiastic about my recipes for Sour Cream Coffee Cake, Cheese Popovers, and Scorched Eggs. Please give this mystery your careful consideration – I think you’ll love it!

Gerry Schmitt, who writes under the pen name Laura Childs is now adding two more series that are harder-edged Wednesday February 26, 2014 in Plymouth. (Pioneer Press: Jean Pieri)

thewiregrassDear Reader,

As a debut novelist, I’m lucky to have received positive reviews of The Wiregrass; however, it was the first review that put me on my knees in gratitude. Lee Ambrose of Story Circle Book Reviews said “. . . The Wiregrass is reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird, Tom Sawyer, and Of Mice and Men, yet is its very own unique story written with a large measure of tenderness and grace.” I hope you enjoy it too!



To win 1 of 5 free copies of The Wiregrass go to and send Pam a message that you want to enter the drawing. Names will be put in a hat and drawn randomly a week before Christmas.
