Yay! It's here!

  By Lizzie Turner from the Ashton Corners Book Club Mysteries
                            by Erika Chase

Now that our latest adventures are out in print – Law and Author hit the bookshelves Sept. 1st in case you missed it – we’re excited to get the word out. In a nutshell, Bob Miller finds he has a granddaughter, twenty years after she was born! Now that’s a shock for anyone.

The problem is, as he’s getting to know her, she’s accused of murdering a stranger who arrived in Ashton Corners around about the same time as she did. Coincidence? The police chief seems to think not. Did I mention, Chief Mark Dreyfus is the guy in my life? You’d think that would keep me from meddling. Think again!

Of course, that’s not what I call it but when someone who’s a real sweet guy and a close friend, like Bob, is hurting, a gal’s just gotta help! As do the rest of the members of the Ashton Corners Mystery Readers and Cheese Straws Society. After reading all the mysteries we do, surely we know a thing or two about investigating murders by now. And sometimes, I swear, the police just seem to have blinders attached. No offense, Mark, sweetie.

Of course, we all have lives and there’s a lot going on in them, so there’s a lot happening between the covers of Law and Author. I can’t really give too much away because that would take all the fun and surprise out of reading the book.

But I will tell you, there are others in the book club facing challenges and romance is in the air. And Teensy Coldicutt has a major problem that she’s dragged me into. But first, we have to take care of that murder business.

And then, we can get on to our next book club read. This time around it was Andie Mason’s pick, and you know how she’s hooked on Janet Evanovich. Need I say more!

If you’re in a book club, what are you reading this month?

Look for A KILLER READ,  (#2 on the Barnes and Noble Mystery Bestseller List and an Agatha Award nominee for Best First Mystery),  READ AND BURIED, COVER STORY, and BOOK FAIR AND FOUL on-line or at your favorite bookstore.
