Cozy Capers on the Case, plus #GIVEAWAY
Hi, gang. I understand you all like cozy mysteries, too! That's wicked awesome. Mac Almeida and I are members of the Cozy Capers book group here in Westham on Cape Cod, and all we read are cozies, one a week, in fact.
The book group members are shop owners or other luminaries in town. I run Salty Taffy's candy shop. Mac has Mac's Bikes. Zane owns the distillery and liquor store. But we also have our head librarian, a retired chief of police, the town clerk, and Mac's brother.
I'll tell you, I never expected to get involved in solving a real mystery! Things got pretty dicey after Mac literally stumbled over Jake's body one foggy night on her way home from book group. Well, you can read the blurb:
Mackenzie Almeida's only experience with murder investigations is limited to the cozy mysteries she reads on Cape Cod with her local book group, the Cozy Capers. But when both she and her brother become suspects in a murder, Mac summons help from her Cozy Capers co-investigators and a library's worth of tips and tricks. This is one mystery where Mac is hoping for anything but a surprise ending...
So Maddie Day says she has a stack of advance copies of Murder on Cape Cod and wants to give away not one but two here today. Cool, huh? So readers, what have you stumbled over lately? Was it good or bad? Be sure to leave your email address so Maddie can contact you. The book releases in a Barnes & Noble paperback exclusive December 18 (and on all platforms a year later).
News Flash: Random.org chose Mary Preston and Jeannie Beck. Congratulations, ladies! Please check your email. I wish I had a copy for everyone who shared their stumbles. ;^)
