By Sassy Cabot from the Read ’Em and Eat Mysteries by Terrie Farley Moran
Well here we are—it is January and Fort Myers Beach is welcoming snowbirds with open arms. Apart from a bit of rain and wind that may drop the temperature down to the low 70s on Monday, we are expecting sunshine and a high of about 83 degrees every day for the next week. Not at all unusual for this time of year. Plenty of beach time for all.
Naturally the Read ’Em and Eat Café and Bookstore is jumping. There is a line out the door every morning for breakfast— Hammett ham’n eggs over hard as well as Agatha Christie soft boiled eggs over Catcher in the Rye toast are best-selling favorites. Snackers stop in all day for sweet tea with the Robert Frost apple and blueberry tartlets and the Miss Marple Orange Iced Scones. Lunch brings out the folks who love Old Man and the Sea Chowder or the Swiss Family Robinson cheeseburger.
Then, there are the book club meetings. What better way for folks to meet new friends and neighbors than to share a book and talk about it?
And if you have never come to Fort Myers Beach to hang out in the Read ’Em and Eat, sit in on a book club meeting or feast on sweet tea and a piece of buttermilk pie, well today might be your lucky day. Our author, Terrie Farley Moran, has some Advanced Reader Copies of Well Read, Then Dead, and Caught Read-Handed. Now these books are uncorrected proofs and don’t have pretty picture covers but I guarantee you will love the stories inside. Comment on this post to let us know which book you would like to win. Please include your email in this format: your name (at) your server (dot) com--so the spambots can't pick it up.
There will be two winners. Each winner will receive an ARC of the book he or she mentions in the comments. Giveaway closes at midnight on Sunday January 22nd.
And now here is a note from our author:
Hi, it’s Terrie here: On Amazon the price of READ TO DEATH is reduced to $5.84, and WELL READ, THEN DEAD is reduced to $7.43. I am fascinated that Amazon has finally decided to reduce the price of CAUGHT READ-HANDED by a whooping nine cents. You can snatch in now for $7.90. Again, I repeat, I have no idea how the pricing is decided, but the nine cent reduction has me hysterical.
