Murder Keeps No Calendar #bookgiveaway #summerreads


Hello folks - Edna Sweet here...nice to meet you. Yes, I am the Edna Sweet who runs the chain of Sweet Olde Tea Shoppes across England. I'm so pleased you like them.
Of course, I started with one little place just outside Oxford, and now look at me! And to think it might never have happened. That first year I was trading...well, the things you overhear when people think you're pouring them a cuppa or toasting a teacake - you have no idea. I was shocked. 
To my core. 
I can't say too much, not here. But if you'd like to know more...
 

When it comes to the perfect summer read - that allows you to relax and visit far-flung places with no effort - what's your cup of tea? 
 
A historic mystery set in old Shanghai? A hapless Scot on a visit to enigmatic Florence? How about an English country tea shop? Or a Welsh seaside city? 
 
Cathy Ace's MURDER KEEPS NO CALENDAR offers escapes to all these places, and more.

Whether you know this award-winning author's Cait Morgan Mysteries and WISE Enquiries Agency Mysteries, or not, you're in for a treat with this book.

Comment below, and leave an email address, to be entered to win a copy of the anthology where both her series begin. Closes midnight Eastern 23rd July. Open to those who live anywhere in the world!
