Author K.A. Miltimore joins us on Book Wordy today to discuss the paranormal characters that inhabit the quirky town of Enumclaw, Washington, created in her book series Burned to a Crisp and In the Teeth of It.
SHOWNOTES FOR EP 12
Nestled deep in the sleepy heart of Enumclaw – a little town in Washington state – Hedy Leckermaul owns a bakery renowned for its strange, sugary confections. Unbeknownst to the town, she also hosts mysterious visitors. Hedy, Adelaide the ghost, and Hedy’s menagerie of animals, offer a place of safety to Enumclaw’s supernatural travelers. Life in the little town in the shadow of Mount Rainier may appear picturesque, but things are often not as they seem.
Peace and tranquility rarely last, and it isn’t long before arson and abduction rock the friendly town, turning the bakery’s world upside down. Hedy must think fast when one of her own is now in danger. She has to solve the mystery before it is too late – seconds count before you are Burned to a Crisp.
If you like mysteries with talking animals, paranormal cozy stories, fairy tales, mythology and a hefty dose of cookies, you’ll love Burned to a Crisp.
It’s been two months since the fiery events of Burned to a Crisp, and it’s Christmas in Enumclaw. Hedy is back to hosting visitors in her waystation, while Mel and Darro are decking the halls and telling tales of Krampus in between batches of cannibal Gingerbread Men cookies—just another Christmas at The Gingerbread Hag bakery.
But the holiday spirit isn’t the only thing making its way through Enumclaw. Something definitely from the naughty list is attacking the local farms and the children are possessed with mischief. Hedy’s worries increase when the Concierge sends someone to investigate her house and possibly shut the waystation down for good.
Who’s been naughty, and who’s been nice? Not every gift under the tree is one she’ll want to open, but Hedy better hurry, before all of Enumclaw gets caught In the Teeth of It.
