By Sassy Cabot from the Read ’Em and Eat mysteries by Terrie Farley Moran
Hi All, I know it’s been a while since I got a chance to talk to you, but between Bridgy practically accused of murder and the moms coming to town, well let’s just say life around the Read ’Em and Eat has been a wee bit hectic.
You met my mother, who is currently going by the name “Sage”, when she stopped by Killer Characters just last month. She flew down from Brooklyn recently with Bridgy’s mom, Emelia. I have to tell you Bridgy is stressed to the max. First, while searching for her lost sunglasses, she stumbled upon Oscar Frieland’s dead body. And now she’s being questioned like a zillion times by the Lee County Sheriff’s department. I personally don’t understand why Lieutenant Frank Anthony is so focused on Bridgy. Even someone as regimented as he is must realize she wouldn’t harm a fly.
I do know that having her mom around has been a great comfort to Bridgy but both Emelia and Sage interfere more than we’d like, especially when it comes to what they think of as the lack of romance in our lives. They claim Bridgy and I work too hard and don’t spend enough time flirting and dating. They seem to forget we have a café and bookshop to run. Still, I’m sure they only have our best interest at heart. To meet the moms and read about the murder of poor Oscar, pick up a copy of Read to Death from your library or favorite bookstore.
And if you have never come to Fort Myers Beach to hang out in the Read ’Em and Eat, sit in on a book club meeting or feast on sweet tea and a piece of buttermilk pie, well today might be your lucky day. Our author, Terrie Farley Moran, has some Advanced Reader Copies of Well Read, Then Dead, and Caught Read-Handed. Now these books are uncorrected proofs and don’t have pretty picture covers but I guarantee you will love the stories inside. Comment on this post to let us know which book you would like to win. Please include your email in this format: your name (at) your server (dot) com--so the spambots can't pick it up.
There will be two winners. Each winner will receive an ARC of the book he or she mentioned in the comments. Comments close on Monday August 22nd.
