LET'S GET COZY: THE AZALEA ASSAULT: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE AZALEA ASSAULT
A Garden Society Mystery
BY ALYSE CARLSON

ABOUT THE BOOK: 
Roanoke, Virginia, is home to some of the country’s most exquisite gardens, and it’s Camellia Harris’ job to promote them. But when an out of towner turns up dead, she discovers there’s no good way to spin murder…

Camellia Harris has achieved a coup in the PR world. The premier national magazine for garden lovers has agreed to feature one of Roanoke’s most spectacular gardens in its pages—and world-famous photographer Jean-Jacques Georges is going to shoot the spread. But at the welcoming party, Jean-Jacques insults several guests, complains that flowers are boring, and gooses almost every woman in the room. When a body is found the next morning, sprawled across the azaleas, it’s almost no surprise that the victim is Jean-Jacques.

With Cam’s brother-in-law blamed for the crime—and her reporter boyfriend, Rob, wanting the scoop—Cam decides to use her skills to solve the murder. Luckily a PR pro like Cam knows how to be nosy…


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
"This (Alyse Carlson) is my pen name for my Cozy Mystery contract with Berkley Prime Crime.  The series has a gardening theme and takes place in Roanoke, Virginia, starring 30-something public relations guru Cam Harris, her crazy friends and family, and her eccentric colleagues at the Roanoke Garden Society.  The first one comes out June 5, 2012, the second is with my primary editor, and the third is in the editing process (due in June).  (Alyse thanks the 3-Es for all their help:  Elizabeth, Ellen and Emily)"--Hart Johnson.
Hart Johnson:  aspiring author of main stream suspense, some adult some YA... "This is my dark face, seeking to do really rotten things to my characters for your reading pleasure (using the fictional drama to keep me from stirring up the real kind).  I've written seven suspense novels and two mysteries under this dark cloud and it is still my hope these will be published and make me rich enough to at least quit my day job."
