Vangie Vale and the Larcenous Lava Cake Guest Post


Author’s Guest Post

Hi, Diane! And thank you so much for having me on your blog. My name is Becca and I am the author of the Matchbaker Mysteries series of cozy mysteries. Yes, MatchBaker is spelled right—even though no one thinks it is. J Even Amazon wants to change it to Matchmaker.

So, what is a MatchBaker?

Well, my main character, Vangie Vale, is very intuitive and good at reading people. She’s got an ability to know things based on very little information. The tiny details about a person tell her a lot about them and about what they like and what they need. Based on that, she’s able to “match” them up with a pastry or baked good. So, it’s not magic. It’s definitely just her noticing and knowing things about people.

But to some people, it feels like magic.

That ability to notice small things often plays a part in her being able to solve the crimes around her, so she’s always getting pulled into investigations. It’s interesting because I think she kinda likes it. She might not admit that. But I think she likes it.

I want to say “thank you” so much for having me here. I love getting to hang out with readers when I have a book release, and this one has been the most well-received of my series so far. I think this might be Vangie’s best book! I hope you enjoy!
