I recently found out from my publisher that my first culinary mystery will be published in July! That means it’s time to nail down all kinds of things, like cover art and the series name. I’ve come up with several series names and I’m having a difficult time deciding on which one I like the most.  I would like some unbiased opinions to help me choose. So, I’ve created a poll to see what others think.

About the series: Amy Ridley lives in a small town in Michigan. She has a loving husband, a crazy dog and a commitment-phobic best friend. Amy is a former beautician who now creates prize winning recipes, instead of hair styles. Her passion is entering cooking contests – from local pie baking competitions to nation-wide searches for the best baked beans recipes. She is a talented cook who ends up developing a new set of skills, solving murders, after she finds a body at a contest in the first book of the series.

What do you think? Does this sound like a series you would like? I would love it if you could let me know what series name you like the most. Which name would make you take a closer look when you are browsing for a new book? Just click on the link below to be taken to the voting form. If you can think of another name, please leave a comment on this post. I’ll take everything into account and make a decision soon. Thank you!

  1. Culinary Contest Queen Mystery Series?
    Mystery In the Baking Series? (lol, though I don’t know that she bakes all the time for these contests)

    • Those are good too! So hard to choose!! I’m going to edit the post to add that not all of the contests she will enter involve baking, though, after seeing your second suggestion. :)

  2. Recipe for Murder series? Cooking for Evidence? Sounds like a fun series.

    • Ooh, those are good too! This may make choosing more difficult, instead of easier. :)

  3. How exciting – congratulations and lots of luck with the series. I know I would really enjoy reading a series like that.
