Wicked Wednesday: Dru Ann on Stick at Crime Bake

The fabulous book blogger and cozy mystery reviewer Dru Ann Love won our contest to accompany the Wicked Cozies to Crime Bake on a stick. (You can find Dru’s blog here and on Facebook here.) We’re happy to report that Dru Ann had a wonderful time. In fact, you could say she was the Belle of the Ball.

Here are but some of the photos of Dru-Ann-on-a-Stick at the New England Crime Bake.

  1. I’m glad Dru Ann had a good time at Crime Bake. I’m going to Malice but I’ll probably enter the contest for the same reason I did last year – to be in 2 places at the same time.

  2. I spotted Dru a number of times getting rowdy and having fun. Great photos and Crime Bake was a blast as always. I just made my reservations for Malice so I will be there in person.

  3. Dru Ann looks like she is having such a great time. I didn’t even know you could on a stick. Now that I know, oh yeah, I would love to go to Malice!

  4. I got to actually meet Dru Ann at Bouchercon! But it looks like she had a blast the weekend before.

    I’m in for Malice – on a stick unfortunately. Some year, I want to be there in person.

  5. This was a really great posting. I was laughing so hard; too bad Dru Ann couldn’t have enjoyed all of these things first hand, but going on a stick has to be better than not being there. Loved this. Made my evening. Thanks everyone. And Dru Ann, you seemed to have more fun than everyone else too!!!!! And did you get any inside info from the private investigator that you can share??
