Heidi Renee Mason, granddaughter of the late Barb Westhafer, and former resident of Newcomerstown, is an Amazon best-selling author and writer of "Always Hope." In July, Mason will release her latest novel, "Love At First Crepe," with Hot Tree Publishing.

In "Love At First Crepe," quirky heroine, Willow Simpson, is at the precipice of reaching her life's goal, but it quickly becomes apparent that someone doesn't want her to live to see her dreams become a reality. After a series of close calls, Willow finds herself in the middle of a love triangle with her two sworn protectors.

This hilarious tale, with its witty banter and sarcasm, will have the readers giggling to themselves and rooting for a happily ever after.

"This is the first time I've written anything funny. I was shocked when Willow's voice started whispering in my ear and she made me laugh. None of my characters have ever made me laugh before, so she took me by surprise. She says the thing you only wish you could say to people," Heidi.

A "Love At First Crepe" blurb:

Who knew a delicious crepe, a kung fu attack, and an unexpected love could create such mayhem. In Heidi Renee Mason's humorous romantic mystery, an easygoing chef soon discovers life can become complicated when you're busy falling in lust and foiling murder plots.

Born into the wealthy Simpson family, free-spirited Willow is determined to make her own way in life. Cooking is her one true love, and she is content to keep it that way. Romance has never been on her agenda, but she suddenly finds herself in the middle of a deliciously decadent love triangle. With two gorgeous men vying for her attention, she vows to keep her distance from both, but the tantalizing chemistry is hard to ignore.

Unfortunately, it seems that someone wants to get rid of Willow, making her already tricky situation that much more difficult. One crazy night changes everything, and Willow's life is turned upside down. Between thwarting her own murder plot, keeping her divinely tasty admirers at bay and trying to stay on the good side of her finicky cat, Omelet, Willow's plate is full. With far too many cooks in the kitchen, will she be able to stay alive long enough to figure out who wants to kill her?
