Halloween Hijinks Here
PENNED IN - a Halloween novella for the Farm to Fork series released this week. I love writing about real places and imagining what it might be like. So yes, there is an old Idaho State Pen... And yes, the names of the prisoners were real. But the overnight lock in may or may not be a real thing. And I have no idea what the tour really looks like. This is what I would do. :) And yes, there are rumors of the building being haunted.
Which makes it the perfect place for an overnight team building event for my County Seat crew.
Let me know what you think.
Angie Turner, chef at Idaho’s finest farm-to-table restaurant, has organized a team-building event at a haunted prison, only to find a real-life murderer in their midst. . . .
Contented employees make for a successful restaurant, which is why the County Seat’s crew goes on a quarterly out-of-office meeting. This time, the location is the Old Idaho Penitentiary near the Boise Foothills, a prison brimming with ghostly lore. The lock-in features actors role-playing as guards, fascinating prison stories . . . and an unscripted murder.
Who sentenced one of the faux guards to a very authentic death? Angie, her boyfriend, and the County Seat gang are locked in with a killer—excellent motivation for a little sleuthing. Between ghostly apparitions and flesh-and-blood suspects, Angie’s plate is full, but will her luck, and her life, hold out until the gates reopen at dawn?
