The truth is out there… Way out there.
Susan Witsend, owner of the best little UFO-themed B&B in the Sierras, is absolutely, positively, not going to get involved in another murder case. Not with her small-town sheriff threatening jail time if she interferes in one more investigation.
So when her neighbor is murdered, Susan exerts all her willpower to stay out of the sheriff’s business. But her neighbor’s daughter, Clare, needs Susan’s help. Clare’s been experiencing lost time, a sure sign of alien abduction. Helping Clare is only neighborly… and totally not interfering. Right?
Worse, Clare’s not the only one with UFO issues. Weird lights in the sky, vanishing cows, and little green men are bringing the mountain town of Doyle to the edge of a panic. Can Susan unearth the truth before her town spirals into chaos? If you like laugh-out-loud mysteries with complicated heroines (and breakfast recipes), you’ll love Close Encounters of the Curd Kind, book 3 in the Wits’ End series of cozy mystery novels. Read this twisty cozy caper today!

Check out the recipe for Vanilla Cranberry Coconut Scones!
 A B&B needs cozy rooms and charm, but without a decent breakfast, you’re missing half of the B. That’s why Susan Witsend of my Wits’ End series of cozy mysteries has become a breakfast aficionado. (And why there are breakfast recipes in the back of each book).
In Close Encounters of the Curd Kind, Susan is having some issues making lemon curd. And she needs fresh lemon curd. What else would she spread on her fresh scones?
So here’s a recipe that isn’t in the book.
Basic Scone Recipe:
2 C flour
1/3 C sugar
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ c (one stick) unsalted butter, cold
½ C French vanilla coffee creamer

Extras:
½ C shredded coconut
½ C dried cranberries

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Line sheet with parchment (or as we did for the video, spray with cooking spray)

Place flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into bowl. Mix.
Cut butter into pieces and add to dry ingredients. Pinch into flour, until mix resembles coarse sand.
Add extras (coconut and cranberries) and mix
Add  creamer and mix
Knead in bowl
Make a ¾” thick round and place on cutting board or cookie sheet. Cut into pieces (the bigger the pieces, the longer you’ll have to bake)
Bake for 14 – 20 minutes
Best enjoyed while reading one of Kirsten's cozy mysteries. Optional: My Wits’ End mysteries, At Wit's End, Planet of the Grapes, Close Encounters of the Curd Kind, or my Tea and Tarot mystery, Steeped in Murder!
