A Roux of RevengeHi . . . I’m Meg. I’d tell you my last name except I DON’T HAVE ONE! At least not yet. I guess you can tell I’m more than a little miffed. You see, everybody in Snowflake has a last name. Lucky’s is Jamieson. Janie, the other waitress at the Soup Shop, is Janie Leonard. Elizabeth is Elizabeth Dove. Even Marjorie and Cecily have a last name – it’s Winters. I don’t know what my author was thinking, but she wasn’t think ing about ME when she neglected to give me one.

I’ve been described as short and plump, with a round face and glasses. Makes me sound like a geek, doesn’t it? And my author has blabbed about my terrible crush on Sage DuBois, the chef at the Spoonful. She can’t seem to keep her mouth shut about anything, that one. Sage is SO handsome though! Of course, my crush is going nowhere. He’s seeing the gorgeous Sophie Colgan . . . hate her! And I heard they might even be getting married, so it’s a no hope situation.

Anyway, I’m putting my foot down. I really need some attention here. Fortunately, my author has listened. RestaurantShe’s giving me some nice little scenes in the fifth book of the series which won’t be out for quite a while, but I can wait. Unfortunately, she’s still having trouble coming up with a last name for me. Can you believe that??? I’ve suggested a few, but they haven’t appealed to her.

So – here’s the deal. My author, Connie Archer, has agreed to seriously consider any suggestions for a last name for me. It’s a contest. If anyone out there in cyberspace who’s a fan of the Soup Lover’s mystery series, or even if you’ve just heard about all of us in Snowflake, Vermont, please, please suggest a last name for me. Please?

If the name you suggest is chosen, you will receive a copy of your choice of one of the three books (so far) in the Soup Lover’s mystery series, and a grateful acknowledgment in the fourth book of the series. Naming contest ends April 11, 2014.


You can read more about Meg in A Roux of Revenge, the third book in the “Soup Lover’s” mystery series. The first book in the series is A Spoonful of Murder. Books are available at retail and online booksellers.

Comment on this post by noon EST on April 7, and you will be entered for a chance to win a copy of A ROUX OF REVENGE. One winner will be chosen at random. Unless specified, U.S. entries only.
