What Woman Doesn’t Like Jewelry or a #giveaway

INTRO and ANNOUNCEMENT: I've blogged happily on the Killer Characters site since 2015, right after my first Fat Cat books came out, written by me as Janet Cantrell. I switched to promoting the Vintage Sweets series when that one started recently. This week, the decision was made to disband the Killer Character group as a dot com blog, sadly. We're all so sorry to see it go! I had prepared this giveaway to post there on my regular day, the 4th of the month. Instead, please see the message there today.

And read on for my farewell Killer Character post:

from INTO THE SWEET HEREAFTER, #3 in the ##VintageSweetsMysteries by Kaye George


I’m not sure what’s going on around here. Fredericksburg has always been such a friendly, peaceful town. Tally, my boss at Tally’s Olde Tyme Sweets, has been talking about a string of break-ins and thefts. Into houses, no less. The local crime watch group, Crime Fritzers, has something to do, at last. My new boyfriend, Ira Mann, is helping with the watch group. I’m so proud of him. I’m also a little star struck, since he is the mayor’s son.

He really treats me well, too. A few days ago he gave me this gorgeous pink sapphire ring. Okay, it’s just a pinky ring, so it can’t be an engagement ring. Or even a promise ring. It’s nice to date someone with money to spare, though, I can tell you. And now he gave me this string of pearls. Not what I would choose, but they had to cost a bundle.


Wait, why is everyone getting so excited? I just came into the shop to show them my new necklace. Surely they don’t believe that nasty customer? The woman who said my sapphire ring was hers? Ira bought these for me. I know he did.
