Untying the Moon

Untying the Moon by Ellen Malphrus 

Friday, November 6, 2015 at Carefree Catering

This debut novel from a Southern storyteller, student of James Dickey and creative writing teacher is a vibrant tale of self-discovery for Bailey, a woman of contradictions, at once a free-spirited adventurer giving deeply of herself to environmental causes and familial loyalties but also consumed by primal, isolating appetites and dangerous attractions. Approaching the realms of myth and lore, readers ride shotgun with Bailey in Blue Ruby, her ’67 Skylark convertible, from Manhattan down the eastern seaboard, from coastal Carolina to the Alaskan wilderness and back again, all in search of the embrace of love and – finally – of home.

Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge

The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge by Charlie Lovett

Friday, November 13, 2015 at Pawleys Plantation

A delightful sequel to Dickens’ beloved A Christmas Carol by the bestselling author of First Impressions and The Bookman’s Tale. On a hot summer day some twenty years after he was famously converted to kindness, Ebenezer Scrooge still roams the streets of London, spreading Christmas cheer, much to the annoyance of his creditors, nephew, and his employee Bob Cratchit. However, when Scrooge decides to help his old friend and former partner Jacob Marley, as well as other inhabitants of the city, he will need the assistance of the very people he’s annoyed. He’ll also have to call on the three ghosts that visited him two decades earlier. By the time they’re done, they’ve convinced everyone to celebrate Christmas all year long by opening their wallets, arms and hearts to those around them. Written in uncannily Dickensian prose, The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge is both a loving and winking tribute to the Victorian classic, perfect for readers of A Christmas Carol and other timeless holiday tales.

This slogan for Croissants Bistro and Bakery in Myrtle Beach perfectly encapsulates the popular restaurant’s elegant and delicious pairing of two distinct culinary traditions – European cuisine and Southern home cooking. Celebrating Croissants’ diversity, the book features dozens of menu delights, such as Crab Cakes, Angry Bulls Bay Clams, and Peach Pork Tenderloin, recipes that successfully combine the elegance and finesse of the French palate with the hospitality and warmth of the Southern kitchen. Also included among the more than fifty recipes are German and Italian-inspired dishes, summer cocktails, and sumptuous confections such as Black Forest Torte from Croissants’ award-winning European bakery. Heidi will demonstrate culinary decorating for the holiday season.
