Oops -- in my excitement in announcing that The Walled Flower was now available, I forgot to mention that my pal Lucy Arlington has a new release as well. It's Buried in a Book.
See if this tickles your fancy (I know it tickled mine -- I preordered it for my Kindle):
After losing her job as a journalist at the age of forty-five, Lila Wilkins accepts an internship at A Novel Idea, a thriving literary agency in North Carolina. Being paid to read seems perfect to Lila, although it's difficult with the cast of quirky co-workers and piles of query letters. But when a penniless aspiring author drops dead in the agency's waiting room--and Lila discovers a series of threatening letters--she's determined to find out who wrote him off.
Okay, I happen to know the author (and love her work) so I know I'm going to enjoy it.
And don't forget my pal E.J. Copperman's latest in the Haunted Guesthouse mystery series: Old Haunts
The ghosts haunting Alison Kerby's Jersey Shore guesthouse are sad. Maxie wants to know who murdered her ex-husband, and Paul pines for his still-living almost-fiancee. The only one who isn't missing her ex is Alison-because The Swine just arrived on her doorstep...
And Clobbered by Camembert by Avery Aames, the third Cheese shop Mystery,
Cheese store owner Charlotte Bessette is setting up for the town's Winter Wonderland fair. Then, when an old friend is found dead in the cottage of Charlotte's assistant Rebecca, a suspicion falls on Rebecca's boyfriend, a honeybee farmer. While the town buzzes with gossip, can Charlotte catch the culprit without getting stung herself?
