About Where There's A Will. . .
Emily Garland is getting married and looking for the perfect forever home. When the old, and some say haunted, Hadley house comes up for sale, she’s convinced it’s “the one.” The house is also perfect for reality TV star Miles Pemberton and his new series, House Haunters. Emily will fight for her dream home, but Pemberton’s pockets are deeper than Emily’s, and he’ll stretch the rules to get what he wants.
While Pemberton racks up enemies all around Lount’s Landing, Arabella Carpenter, Emily’s partner at the Glass Dolphin antiques shop, has been hired to appraise the contents of the estate, along with her ex-husband, Levon. Could the feuding beneficiaries decide there’s a conflict of interest? Could Pemberton?
Things get even more complicated when Arabella and Levon discover another will hidden inside the house, and with it, a decades-old secret. Can the property stay on the market? And if so, who will make the winning offer: Emily or Miles Pemberton?

An Invitation to The Hanged Man’s Noose Pub
By Judy Penz Sheluk
The Hanged Man’s Noose is the first book in my Glass Dolphin cozy mystery series, and it’s also the name of a local pub in Lount’s Landing, owned and operated by history buff Betsy Ehrlich. You see, Lount’s Landing is named after Samuel Lount, a nineteenth-century politician hanged for treason. (Fun Fact: Samuel Lount did exist, he was hanged for treason, though the town he resided in was Holland Landing.)
While the Glass Dolphin books don’t include recipes, the characters love to congregate at the pub. My website has a Food & Drink page (www.judypenzsheluk.com/recipes) that includes recipes for some of their orders.
Today, I’m sharing a recipe for the pub’s signature drink,
the Treasontini (a blueberry vodka martini), as well as Mexican Bruschetta,
mentioned in my latest book, Where
There’s A Will.
2 oz. Blueberry Vodka
2 oz. Triple Sec
2 oz. Blueberry Juice
1 dash Club Soda
Fresh or Frozen Blueberries
Preparation: Combine blueberry vodka, triple sec and blueberry juice in a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Shake well and strain into a cocktail glass. Top with club soda, garnish with blueberries, and serve.

About the Glass Dolphin Mystery Series
A cozy mystery series without the cats, crafts, or cookie recipes, the Glass Dolphin mysteries follow the investigations of amateur sleuths Arabella Carpenter and Emily Garland. The books include: The Hanged Man’s Noose (#1), A Hole in One (#2), and Where There’s A Will (#3). While it is always preferable to read a series in order, any one of the titles can be read as a standalone.
