BATTERED: A Whipped & Sipped Mystery

Alene Baron is 38 years old and over seven years divorced from her philandering husband. She lives in a Chicago lakefront high-rise with her 3 children and her 72-year-old father. She owns the nearby Whipped and Sipped Café, which serves decadent but healthful pastries and drinks. Alene’s pastry chef and best friend is Ruthie, the college roommate with whom she once developed code words to study for history exams.

Alene is also an avid reader of mysteries. When a neighbor is found dead she begins to compile a list of suspects. A week later, another neighbor is found battered, and one of Alene’s young employees is holding the gun.

A few days later, the murderer confronts Alene.

About

G.P. Gottlieb

Chicago-based author of the Whipped and Sipped Mystery series and a host for New Books in Literature, a podcast of the New Books Network.

G.P. Gottlieb holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in piano and voice. During her career as a cantor, a high school music teacher, and the administrator of a law center, she wrote stories, songs, and several unwieldy manuscripts. She also developed healthful recipes for her family and friends. After recovering from breast cancer, she turned to writing in earnest, melding her two loves, nourishment for mind and body and recipe-laced murder mysteries.

Galit is honing the craft of writing with guidance from Chicago author and writing teacher, S.L. Wisenberg. After receiving an untoward number of agent rejections, she submitted her manuscript to an online contest, and won a publishing contract from D.X. Varos Ltd. She is now working on a Whipped and Sipped sequel, Smothered. You can hear her interview novelists and short-story writers on New Books in Literature, a podcast of the New Books Network, which gets nearly 60,000 downloads each day. Also, she is a graduate of the French Pastry School’s Bread Boot Camp and Chocolate Boot Camp.

G.P. Gottlieb is available for demonstrations of healthful cooking – vegetarian, vegan and kosher – which include generous tastings. She is also available to speak in person or remotely to your book group. Please visit her events page for an updated schedule of her appearances.
