New Release GIVEAWAY from Cathy Ace




Hi there - Cait Morgan here...a bit out of breath, because my luggage is heavy, but I've arrived. Yes, I’ve finally made it to Budapest. I’m terribly sad that Bud couldn’t come with me, but we both know he’s done the right thing staying in Canada to help his mother with her recuperation from hip surgery. I’m not sure how I’ll cope without my husband’s steadying influence. I’m guessing I’ll over-eat a fair bit, and I might give in to the odd beer or two. Or, maybe grab a bottle of gin for the fridge to reward myself for a good day’s work.

The Hungarian University of Budapest is putting me up at an apartment they keep for visiting professors. I’ve just arrived at the university’s admin building to collect the keys, and a Professor Patrik Matyas greeted me. He reminds me of a llama. I don’t like llamas – they spit while they’re smiling at you. And Patrik grins a lot. I hope I don’t have to spend too much time with him. I know Bud’s always telling me I’m quick to judge – which, given my training and skills in reading body language is, I think, a good thing to do.

My initial reaction to Patrik is that he makes me want to take a bath, and scrub myself all over. Ah well, he’s being gratingly polite and helpful, so I’ll put up with it for now. I’m here for a whole month before Bud arrives, so we will at least have a week here together. But until then? Other than teaching and working on a research paper, I’m sure I’ll manage to find time to see some of the sights and – who knows – I might find something interesting to keep my brain ticking over, other than delivering courses on criminal psychology to Hungarian students. We’ll see.

Cait Morgan Mystery #8, THE CORPSE WITH THE RUBY LIPS, was published in Canada on October 18th, and will be available in the USA from November 1st. It's available to order RIGHT NOW! Leave a comment below with your email address BEFORE MIDNIGHT EASTERN ON SUNDAY OCTOBER 23RD to have a chance to win a signed copy!

Cathy Ace writes the WISE Enquiries Agency Mysteries (book #2 THE CASE OF THE MISSING MORRIS DANCER was published in trade paperback on August 31st in the UK, and will be available on November 1st in the US/Canada), and the Cait Morgan Mysteries.
