One's own mother might turn, indeed, into a princess just before it was time to go to bed, with white arms and jewels upon her neck. Then one fell asleep knowing that no day in Weir could be without its enchantment, whether the clouds seemed caught in the tree-tops, or the snow flew and made the red roofs white; or whether the sun danced on the green lawns, for each day ended with a faery tale, and these are the tales of Weir.
When the Honorable Richard Rollison, aka The Toff, receives a voodoo doll in the mail with a knife stuck through her chest the detective becomes involved in a bizarre case in which crime and black magic seemed to be inextricably mixed.

Murder's Bold Inscription "Whoever had broken into the shop might just have gone upstairs afterwards, might just be there still...My first reaction was anger: I wanted to roar up the stairs, only I could hear Barnabas saying, the way he used to when I was little: "Temper, Dido! Count to twenty-nine..." Selling rare books has its moments, but few are anything close to thrilling--except when Dido Hoare's scoundrel of an ex-husband suddenly reappears and puts a pulse of excitement in the air.But events go from interesting to intense when someone ends up murdered and the culprit seems to think Dido has something worth killing for, too. With the help of her father, Barnabas, a retired academic with a penchant for mysteries, Dido may be able to divert the killer long enough to figure out who wants her dead and why.
Recovering from a heart attack, the irrepressible Barnabas is taking chances that are likely to give Dido a coronary of her own, and give the police a bad case of indigestion. But as Dido and Barnabas are about to learn, every crime has its victims and its payoffs--it's just a matter of being on the right side of the bookshelf before everything comes tumbling down.
Fresh Food Nation is at the intersection of a big need and a big trend. The need is for recipes, techniques, and inspiration for fresh produce, especially vegetables. The trend is the growing desire to eat local and connect with the source of our food--not just because locally grown food is fresher and tastier, but because it offers emotional, environmental, and food safety benefits.CSAs (community-supported agriculture organizations)are the latest wave in the rising tide of eating local. Having a share in a CSA is a more intimate and committed way of cooking with super-fresh fruits, vegetables, and even dairy products, poultry, meat, and bread. Regard of whether you are a CSA member, frequent your local farmer’s market, or buy produce at the market, Fresh Food Nation offers simple, delicious, intriguing recipes for seasonal, fresh produce. Fresh Food Nation at its heart is a great basic vegetable and fruit recipe book, but it is wrapped in a very timely and relevant concept—eating with the bounty of the season, family farming, coming together to distribute food to the community--making it, in essence, the new “community” cookbook.
