Blog Tour, Character Interview, Review, & Giveaway for Turkey Basted to Death by Jodi Rath

Character Interview – 
Ava Martinez—Co-owner of Cast Iron Creations

1)      Tell us a little bit about yourself--both something we learn from [the story] and something that readers might not guess?  I’d say when people read the books, that they believe Jolie Tucker is the protagonist and possibly saner than I am. None of that is true.
2)      How did you first meet your writer? Well, she says I’m a mix of all of her girlfriends, but I believe I am WAY cooler and Lord knows more beautiful than all of them put together! Also, I’m not too thrilled with the writer as she saw fit to make Jolie the protagonist of the series—this writer seems to be a bit of a dim bulb.
3)      Want to dish about him/her? Uh, duh! Of course, she’s got medusa type curls and there are times when she’s writing that she gets stuck and runs her hands through her hair and pulls out. I mean, the hair is wild enough without the pulling of the curls. She has eight cats that are always in her business when she writes and that may be part of her insanity if I had to guess. She’s smartening up a bit though, she had Jolie and I take a self-defense course in this upcoming book because we kept getting the crap beat out of us. Also, I’ll be working on becoming a PI in the future books—why? Oh, because I’m awesome at it!
4)      Why do you think that your life has ended up being in a book? Because I’m awesome, babeeee!!!!!
5)      Who's your favorite character? Why?  I have to stick with my series—even though the writer isn’t as loyal to me as I am her—Grandma Opal is a fave of mine in the series—she’s a hoot and a half and a holler!
6)      Who's your least favorite character? Why? Bradley—my girlfriend’s brother, who was in love with me, now, at times has it out for me and his sister. Such a jerk at times!
7)      What's next for you? Ava Martinez P.I.

About Turkey Basted to Death

Cozy Mystery 2.5 in the Series -  A Holiday Book  
MYS ED LLC (November 15, 2019) 
Number of Pages 133 pages  
Thanksgiving is here, and Jolie Tucker has had quite the year! She is ready to sit back and relax with family and friends. But this is Leavensport, OH—so get ready for intense therapy sessions, dysfunctional family holiday gatherings, uninvited guests, and an inner-city teen advocate found DEAD—stabbed in the ear with the turkey baster!
Welcome to Leavensport, OH, where DEATH takes a DELICIOUS turn!
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

This book was so fun! Joliet is gearing up for Thanksgiving by cooking lots of different types of cast iron turkey recipes. The who!e town will be eating together at The community center. Things are going well until the mayor drops a whole added group of at risk teens on them. Julie tries her best to get along with it all but this tries her her as when on the big day they find the group leader with the turkey baster shoved in her head. Investors this lead to some interesting investigating. Puts in the holiday mood as all of the chaos ensues just like it does at home. Perfect for fans of culinary cozies. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
