Bertie Winslow on Judgment #GIVEAWAY
Greetings from Amesbury, Massachusetts, on a warm summer day! Those of you who know midwife Rose Carroll probably also know I am her fast friend and supporter. This time around, it seems she had a need to support me.
I normally go about my business as postmistress of our fair mill and factory town and mind my own business. Yes, I ride my horse Grover astride - not sidesaddle - a beast I named after our recently unseated President Cleveland. Being a woman in a position of municipal power has earned me some glares, as does riding my horse in an unconventional manner.
But most shocking to many is that I live unmarried with my chosen love. She just happens to be a woman, lawyer Sophie Ribeiro. While some scorn us, I'm proud to say Quaker Rose accepts our unofficial marriage fully. Unfortunately, one of my most fervent public detractors was murdered of late. To my astonishment, and to Rose's, I was accused of the crime.
You can bet we went to work solving it, much aided by Rose's blind pregnant client, the brilliant Jeanette Papka. And you can read all about it in Judge Thee Not - it comes out a week from today.
Meanwhile, our author would like to send one of you a special gift package - a Wicked Authors bag, an author apron, and bookmarks. To enter, all you have to do is, well, comment about anything: your experiences with midwives, with the post office, with aprons, or what your favorite Rose book is to date. You can ask her questions, too. Good luck! (Oh, and Edith would like you to remember that preordering truly assists the author.) We hope you love the new book.
Maddie Day creates the Country Store Mysteries and the Cozy Capers Book Group Mysteries. As Edith Maxwell, this Macavity- and Agatha-nominated author writes the Quaker Midwife Mysteries, the Local Foods Mysteries, and award-winning short crime fiction.
