The theme is food folks and I’m here to share a tantalizing treat for you today. Bacon wrapped asparagus!


This is super easy to make and you can have it ready to pop into the oven within 10 minutes. How great is that? Simply use the bacon of your choice and wrap each asparagus shoot up as shown above. All you have to do next is layer them on a broiler pan, that works so that the bacon grease will drain off as they bake in a 350 oven. Cook until the bacon is done.

Bacon wrapped asparagus makes a good appetizer or can be served with the main meal. I must admit that I’m not the hugest asparagus fan, but as they say: everything goes better with bacon. Or is it just me that says that?

While I’m most known for my Agnes Barton cozy mystery series, I also write romance and I’d like to share my most recent book with you, Redneck Romance.

Redneck Romance by Madison Johns - 200

Twenty-year-old Kelly Gray arrives in the mountainous area of North Carolina, deep in Redneck land, intent on journeying into the Joyce Kilmer Wilderness to take fall pictures, which she hopes to sell to National Geographic. That is until she runs out of gas and needs to enlist the help of Jimmy Bob Willows, a redneck with sexy blue eyes. While he filled her tank with gas, she threw caution to the wind and hired him as a guide, ignoring the fact of how dangerous it may be. Hiring a man whom she doesn’t even know, a man who insists on calling her, City. 

Experienced mountain man Jimmy Bob Willows leads the inexperienced Kelly into the mountains, teaching her how to survive in the wilderness. This is a new experience for Kelly as she has never been out from under her mother’s thumb before, but she embraces what Jimmy Bob is teaching her, and for once in her life, she’s on a real adventure, one that results in Jimmy Bob saving Kelly from a copperhead snake and moonshiners! 

Kelly fights the growing attraction between them, but will it be a losing battle?

This book is packed with humor so don’t let the name fool you.

As part of this hop, I’m giving away a copy of Redneck Romance to one lucky commenter.

Check out more about my book on Tirgearr Publishing’s website that features an excerpt.


Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!
