Celebrating this Sunday

By Lizzie Turner from A Killer Read, first in the Ashton Corners Book Club Mysteries

Everyone’s talking about Mother’s Day coming up this weekend! I’ll add my thoughts because it’s doubly special for me. First of all, I’m so thankful to be able to spend it with my mama, even though she’s probably not aware I’m with her. It’s been a very long time since I felt we really connected, what with her illness but I still value the weekly visits with her and especially, the wonderful memories from my happy childhood.

The other person I celebrate is my dear friend Molly Mathews. She was actually a good friend of my grandmamma Beata and then just took over when mama got so bad. She arranged for the wonderful home for her and she took me under her wing. I’ll always be grateful. And, she’s such a wonderful person, I keep hoping it will rub off on me.

I feel so badly that she was suspected of murder in A Killer Read and I know, even though I probably shouldn’t say, that she’s in jeopardy in the upcoming book, Read & Buried. I do worry about her.

We all do. That’s why the members of the Ashton Corners Mystery Readers & Cheese Straws Society are ready to tackle any crime to help save one of our own. Besides, it’s really a lot of fun.

I hope you’ll be celebrating this Sunday with someone very special!

Read & Buried coming Dec., 2012 from Berkley Prime Crime


  1. I'm sure my mother in South Carolina would appreciate a visit, but I can't get away from In Stitches, my machine embroidery boutique in northwestern Pennsylvania, and she's up for re-election this year and wouldn't be able to spare time from her campaigning. Thanks for the reminder, though. I'll send flowers and a card, and will try to call her.

  2. Hope all the moms out there have a wonderful day!

  3. I agree -- Happy Mother's Day to all moms everywhere!
