COZY MYSTERY: DANGEROUS ALTERATIONS - A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAWAY


DANGEROUS ALTERATIONS 
A Southern Sewing Circle Mystery  
BY ELIZABETH LYNN CASEY

ABOUT THE BOOK:
When Tori Sinclair's philandering ex turns up dead, the police chief believes it was murder-and that Tori may have been involved. Now, only the girls from the sewing circle will be able to help keep her life from coming apart at the seams... 

PROJECT FROM DANGEROUS ALTERATIONS:
 
In DANGEROUS ALTERATIONS, Rose convinces the Sweet Briar Ladies Society Sewing Circle to make comfort pillows for breast cancer patients like her friend, Lynn. 

Comfort pillows, like the ones Rose and the gang make in the book, are much smaller than traditional bed pillows and are used to make things like driving and even coughing/sneezing a bit less painful for women who have just underwent a mastectomy.

This is a great (and relatively easy) service project for an individual or group to perform!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
It's not often that someone can provide visual proof of the exact moment their lifelong dream was born. Which means I'm one of the lucky ones...

Nestled safely in the top drawer of my filing cabinet is the very first book I ever wrote—a six-page illustrated story entitled, Kidney Learns a Lesson. Looking back, I can't help but think the more accurate title would have been, A Dream Is Born.

While Kidney (a sweetly drawn little brown bear) was learning the kind of lesson its ten-year-old creator felt noteworthy, I was falling in love with the process of writing...of creating a world that came to life beneath my pencil.

With my path chosen, I began devouring every book I could find—my earliest favorites being penned by the likes of Carolyn Keene, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and Mary Higgins Clark...

Through them, I learned the joy of reading. Through my devotion to craft, I learned the joy of plotting and creating. And through my readers, I've learned the joy of providing a momentary escape from life—a chance to explore a new place, a new career, a new hobby, a new experience.

Because that's what books do. They allow us to dream...

And dreaming is something I know all about.

I started reading around six years old, when my mother took me to the library each Saturday for years and I dot as many books as the library would allow. I have been reading for 62 years and love the many books that I have read over the years.
DANGEROUS ALTERATIONS BY ELIZABETH LYNN CASEY sounds like a great read and I love southern books since I was born and always lived in the same house in N.C.
Thanks!
