TRAVEL FOR FREE – WITH A Cait Morgan Mystery #BOOKGIVEAWAY!



Hello folks – Cait Morgan here. If you know me at all, you know I travel, a lot. And it seems that whenever I do, I end up tripping over a corpse and having to work my way through a puzzling, closed circle mystery…you know, the good old-fashioned type with lots of suspects, red herrings and a chance for me to bring everyone together at the end of my investigations to reveal the culprit.

“Have you been missing those delightful mystery-travelogue works from Lyn Hamilton? Say hello to Cathy Ace and her intrepid sleuth, Cait Morgan, a Welsh-Canadian professor with a predilection for investigating crime...the series is a winner...terrific light mystery with a wonderful setting and Ace is, well, an ace when it comes to plot and description.”  
Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail about The Corpse with the Ruby Lips

Well, this month it’s time to decide where you’d like to go in the world….but put away that passport, forget the lines at the airport, and kick back with a Cait Morgan Mystery that will whisk you away to…well, where would you like to go?

Choose from Nice, on the Cote d’Azur in the South of France (The Corpse with the Silver Tongue), or maybe the glorious vineyards of the Okanagan Valley in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada (The Corpse with the Golden Nose)? Or how about Mexico – the Pacific coast, near Puerto Vallarta (The Corpse with the Emerald Thumb) or maybe a quick jaunt to Vegas (The Corpse with the Platinum Hair)? Maybe you’d like to venture to a Welsh clifftop castle (The Corpse with the Sapphire Eyes) or how about a luxury cruise around the Hawai’ian Islands (The Corpse with the Diamond Hand)? Of course, you could head to Europe…Amsterdam maybe (The Corpse with the Garnet Face) or Budapest (The Corpse with the Ruby Lips). 

Just leave a comment below, (by midnight, Eastern, on Saturday 24th June 2017)  with your email address, and tell me which Cait Morgan Mystery you’d prefer to be sent, and your name will go into the “hat” for a random selection of one lucky winner (who can live in the USA, Canada or the UK). 

Armchair travel with a puzzling mystery thrown in for good measure? The best way to enjoy the world for a crime fiction fan!

Cathy Ace is the Bony Blithe Award-winning author of The Cait Morgan Mysteries (#8 The Corpse with the Ruby Lips was released on November 1st) and The WISE Enquiries Agency Mysteries (#3, The Case of the Curious Cook, was released in hardcover in the UK on November 30th and in the USA & Canada on March 1st).  You can find out more about Cathy, her work and her characters at her website, where you can also sign up for her newsletter with news, updates and special offers: http://cathyace.com/
