Goodbye, Harleysville Books

It is with great sadness that I announce the closing of my beloved bookstore, Harleysville Books. While our events and book clubs are extremely popular and routinely sell out, our day-to-day traffic and sales do not support the ever-increasing cost of doing business in today's world. Over the past year, the store has become more of a "showroom" for those looking for reading suggestions who then choose to purchase the books from other vendors. It is my sincere hope that those who have enjoyed shopping with us over the past 11 years will stop in during the next few weeks to share their memories and say, "Goodbye." Please stay tuned for details about our final days.

What are people saying about Too Many Cooks?

"With her fabulous third book "Too Many Cooks," Dana Bate proves she is a foodie fiction writer who is here to stay A peek behind the curtain of the little-known world of the cookbook ghostwriter offers a backdrop for a story that will have you laughing, rooting for a beautifully flawed heroine, running to the pantry, and will definitely leave you hungry for more.
