Three Blonde Mice video book trailer
If, like me, you’re in your 60s (give or take a decade), it hasn’t escaped you that our mothers are dropping like flies — or are about to…
I haven’t written a Mainly Jane post for months, and I can’t blame the snow. But Northwest Connecticut sure did get a lot of the white stuff and after living in California for many years I wasn’t thrilled about it. But spring is here (except it’s supposed to snow again today – ugh) and I …

Read about Jane's Three Blond Mice book signing party, how she spent her summer, and what she's reading these days.

I do agree! Love and danger = entertainment! It was Susan Isaacs who got me hooked on the combo.

Murder plots... they have a way spicing up any romance, don't you agree! Jane Heller does... and is giving you a chance to win her book AND an apron!

Guest post from author Jane Heller with her new release Three Blonde Mice. Plus! A sweepstakes for a chance to win her book and a Three Blonde Mice apron.

Book party coming up soon! Be there! #ThreeBlondeMice


Join New York Times bestselling author Jane Heller on Saturday, August 6th at 2:30 p.m. to celebrate the publication of her new novel, Three Blonde Mice, and sample a very special dessert!

Set at a fictional farm resort in Litchfield, Connecticut, Three Blonde Mice is a comedy featuring three best friends who take a “haycation” together, learning how to milk a cow, make cheese, forage for wild edibles and take cooking classes with a famous farm-to-table chef….only to discover that one of their classmates is out to murder the chef.

A big part of Jane’s research was spending time at Litchfield County’s own Arethusa, both the dairy farm and the restaurant. Figuring into the plot is a chocolate-and-beets dessert created especially for the book by Arethusa al tavolo’s pastry chef, James Arena (recipe included!).

Dan Magill, Arethusa al tavolo’s executive chef and James Beard semi-finalist, and pastry chef James Arena will be on hand to offer samples of the dessert and answer any questions, and the Hickory Stick Bookshop will provide copies of the book for purchase and for Jane to sign.

When: Saturday, August 6th, 2:30 p.m.
Where: Arethusa al tavolo, 828 Bantam Road, Bantam, CT 06750
What: Book signing for Jane Heller, author of Three Blonde Mice (Diversion Books/August/$13.99)
How: Hickory Stick Bookshop

We finally finished the video book trailer for Three Blonde Mice, and it’s a lot of fun. (Be sure to stick around for the credits! They’re the best part of the video!) Matt Senecal, the farm guru at Arethusa Farm Dairy in Litchfield, CT, was a great sport. He not only let me milk a […]

I got a nice blurb for Three Blonde Mice over the weekend from one of my favorite authors, Eileen Goudge. Years ago – and it probably feels like another lifetime ago to her – she was world famous for writing the phenomenally successful Sweet Valley High series for teenagers. Then she moved into adul

On Wednesday I spent the afternoon at Arethusa Farm in Litchfield, CT. It was a glorious sunny day and as Michael (husband) snapped pics like the one above of me “chatting” with a dairy cow named Velour about Three Blonde Mice, Garrett, our videographer from Digital Video Productions in Brookfield,…

How about this cute little "Three Blonde Mice" apron that may be headed your way....(details to come).
