from Peg Cochran's Cranberry Cove Series
I don’t think we’ve met yet. I’m Phyllis Bouma, and I’m proud to be the head librarian at the Cranberry Cove Library here in our small town. You may think of a library as a rather quiet and perhaps even dull place, but we’ve had our share of excitement. Monica Albertson—she helps her half-brother run Sassamanash Farm—once found a clue here that actually helped solve a murder!
And if you’re looking for gossip—this is the place for it. There’s plenty of whispering in the stacks going on. I’ve certainly gleaned some juicy tidbits listening in. You wouldn’t believe what goes on beneath the surface of this town.
And if that isn’t good enough for you, you can always check out a book. There are so many stories to lose yourself in—mysteries, adventure, romance—not that I approve of those bodice rippers mind you—but each to himself I always say.
And if books are your thing—Greg Harper who owns Book ‘Em in town holds a weekly book discussion. Do you know Greg? He and Monica just got married and had a lovely reception at the Cranberry Cove Yacht Club—unfortunately for them a dead body in a boat floated up on shore while they were spending the night at the Cranberry Cove Inn. And of course Monica, who’s had experience in these things like I told you, ended up getting involved.
Feel free to stop in any time. I’d be glad to recommend a good read.
And NOW for a giveaway--I'm giving away a copy of Dead and Berried and Sowed to Death for you to gift to your library whether that's your local public library, the book room at the hospital or local retirement center--the choice is yours! Please leave a comment below to be entered and be sure to check back for the winner. You have until midnight Friday!

A Park Avenue princess discovers the dark side of 1930s New York when a debutante ball turns deadly in this gripping historical mystery for readers of Victoria Thompson, Anne Perry, and Rhys Bowen.
Manhattan, 1938. Tired of being trapped in the gilded cage of her family’s expectations, Elizabeth Adams has done what no self-respecting socialite would think to do: She’s gotten herself a job. Although Elizabeth’s dream is to one day see her photographs on the front page of the Daily Trumpet, for now she’s working her way up as the newsroom’s gal Friday.
But fetching coffee isn’t exactly her idea of fun, so when veteran reporter Ralph Kaminsky needs a photographer to fill in for a last-minute assignment, Elizabeth jumps at the chance. At the Waldorf Hotel, Elizabeth is tasked with tracking down the season’s “It girl,” Gloria DeWitt, who will be making her society debut. Working her own connections to New York’s upper crust, Elizabeth manages to land an exclusive interview with Gloria.
Then Gloria’s stepmother is shot dead in a Waldorf bathroom, placing Elizabeth at the scene of a headline-worthy scandal: “Murder of a Society Dame.” Now Elizabeth will have to get the scoop on the killer before her good name gets dragged through the gossip columns—or worse. . . .
