Campaign Seasoning by Betsy Bitner
by Barb Goffman
From the anthology The Killer Wore Cranberry: A Second Helping (Untreed Reads, 2012).
Everyone in the Miller family is in politics. When the family’s rising star marries Alexa, most in the family love her, but Helen has her doubts. Alexa’s hiding something. She’s too crafty. Too vague about her background. And she makes homemade cranberry sauce, not the good stuff from the can. Sheesh.
