Join me as I chat with best-selling author Sonja B. on her first season with the Lunchtime Chronicles.
My My Sweet Potato Pie
Sweet, Smooth, and Sinful
After going through a bitter divorce that left me broken and angry at the world, I needed a fresh start. On a whim, I took the advice of my best friend, Tangy, and moved to the small country town of Leesbough, where she resides. The townspeople welcome me with their southern hospitality, which I wasn’t used to. I instantly fell in love with my new home and community. The only thing that was a mystery, was my elusive neighbor, Andrew Peterson, who lived down the dirt road from me. Tangy and others warned me not to interact with him because he’s known as the town recluse. However, when that handsome mountain of a man with a scruffy beard and long hair showed up on my doorstep holding a sweet potato pie, all of their warnings went out the window.
The Secret Sauce
Hot, Sticky and Sweet
I’ve avoided going back to my hometown for the last six years. After I graduated high school, I was on the first thing smoking out of town. Now, my Granny’s sick and calling for me to come home. Of course, it would be during the annual town fair and barbecue sauce contest. To my surprise, one of the contestants is Wyatt Montgomery, the main reason why I left town. When I found out he’s won the last four years straight, I entered the contest to take the trophy and bragging rights away from him. My competitive nature reared its ugly head as I pulled out all stops to beat him even if that means playing dirty.
