For diner owner Gia Morelli, her seasonal fall menu calls for two main ingredients — maple syrup and murder . . . 

While the first hints of autumn grace Boggy Creek, Florida, Gia misses the colorful harvest traditions she left behind in New York. On a scramble to make new fall memories — and promote her irresistible pumpkin spice waffles — things take a dark turn when she gets roped into the Haunted Town Festival, a spooky celebration held on deserted farmlands. The desolate area conjures plenty of eerie vibes at night, but Gia and her best friend, Savannah, are nearly frightened to death upon the discovery of the event organizer’s body buried in the nearby woods. More alarming, the local rumor mill says the woman’s shady dealings may have egged someone into sending her to an early grave. Now, there’s no shortage of creepy clues to feast on as Gia and her pals try to stop a killer with a very scary appetite . . . 

Includes recipes from the All-Day Breakfast Café!

Fall Traditions

It’s hard to believe summer has come and gone so quickly. It seems like only yesterday I was shopping for sunscreen and beach chairs. Now the stores are filled with hay bales, scarecrows, and pumpkins. Before we know it, the holidays will be upon us. As much as I love the Christmas season, I have to admit, my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. Actually, I love everything about fall.

In my All-Day Breakfast Café Mystery series, fall is one of the things Gia misses most about New York. I’ve lived most of my life on Long Island, except for a couple of years when I lived in central Florida. Like Gia, there were things I missed about New York, especially fall, when the leaves change colors and the air feels crisp and clean. 

Every year my kids and I drive out east on the north shore of Long Island to visit farm stands. We pick pumpkins and apples, work our way through corn mazes, and stuff ourselves with roasted sweet corn and apple cider. 

Every fall, my daughter and my middle son volunteer for the local Spooky Walk, an annual event that raises money for a camp for children with special needs. They dress up in ghoulish costumes and scare the daylights out of everyone walking through a dark path in the woods. My youngest son is too young to participate — although we did try to get him to dress up as Chuckie — so he and I make a special dessert for when everyone gets home. It really makes me proud that they chip in to help others, and they have a great time doing it. 

So, what is your favorite season? Do you have any fun seasonal traditions?
