The Biscuit Witch
A Crossroads Café Novella
Book One of The MacBrides
Dear Dr. Firth:
I know you are in your cups at this time, drinking, taking pills, and sleeping under trees, but I have some experience rehabilitating lost souls in that regard, and so I am enclosing a box of my biscuits and a cold-wrapped container of cream gravy for dessert. Please eat and write back.
We need a veterinarian of your gumption here in the Crossroads Cove of Jefferson County.
- Delta Whittlespoon, proprietress of The Crossroads Café
"Biscuit witches, Mama called them. She'd heard the term as a girl. She'd inherited that talent. My mother could cast spells on total strangers simply by setting a plate of her biscuits in front of them." - Tal MacBride
Welcome back to the Crossroads Cove, where new loves, old feuds, and poignant mysteries will challenge siblings Tal, Gabby, and Gus MacBride to fight for the home they lost and to discover just how important their family once was, and still is, to the proud people of the Appalachian highlands.
Tallulah MacBride hasn't been back to North Carolina since her parents' tragic deaths 20 years ago. But now, Tal heads to cousin Delta Whittlespoon's famous Crossroads Café in the mountains above Asheville, hoping to find a safe hiding place for her young daughter, Eve.
What she finds is cousin Delta gone, the café in a biscuit crisis, and a Scotsman who refuses to believe she's passing through instead of "running from." He believes she needs a knight in shining flannel.
When a pair of sinister private eyes show up, Tal's troubles are just beginning. For Tal's brother and sister - Gabby, the Pickle Queen, and Gus, the Kitchen Charmer - the next part of the journey will lead down forgotten roads and into beautiful but haunted legacies.

This is a wonderful old fashioned old time feel good story of people coming together to help each other. A place where everyone considers themselves family and help is always given. I really loved this story it made me feel happy listening to it. I was reminded how life used to be a long time ago and it made me very nostalgic.

Generations of Biscuits
Author Deborah Smith has written a delightful, quirky, Southern novel incorporating food, family, and finding love. Family in the South usually goes back for generations and this story doesn't disappoint. As the family tree's gnarled branches are exposed, the adept narration [AUDIO] by Misty Gray flips effortlessly between a medium southern drawl and a rich Scottish brogue, adding Delta's thick deep south and various other voices ranging from Appalachian to New York which take center stage as required. Although there is an HEA (Happily Ever After) rounding out book #1, a clear overarching series arc has me wanting to start immediately on the next volume.
