LET'S GET COZY: GRACE AMONG THIEVES - A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
GRACE AMONG THIEVES
A Manor House Mystery
BY JULIE HYZY
ABOUT THE BOOK:
As curator and manager of the Marshfield Manor, Grace Wheaton is delighted to be part of the estate’s magnificent history, but no one told her solving murder was in her job description…
 
When Grace’s former professor calls to warn her that there have been a rash of thefts at various historical sites, Grace isn’t surprised—because Marshfield Manor has been targeted, too. She wonders if it has something to do with the film crew roaming the grounds, digitally immortalizing the manor, but then she gets distracted by an incident much more dire: the shooting of one guest and the murder of another.

Grace does her best not to go looking for trouble, but with a murderer on the loose, she can’t seem to leave the dirty work to the cops—especially since the killer still seems to be lurking around town, waiting to finish the job of making Grace history…

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Anthony and Barry Award winner Julie Hyzy is the New York Times bestselling author of the White House Chef Mystery series featuring the intrepid Olivia (Ollie) Paras, and the Manor House Mystery series featuring mansion curator Grace Wheaton.
Julie Hyzy's very first job had her flipping burgers and chopping onions at a neighborhood hot dog stand. She traded that experience for a job as a singing waitress at Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour -- but gave that up when she started college (and because she couldn't carry a tune).

Over the years, she's acted in community theater productions, appeared in television commercials, and crashed a previously all-male fraternity to become one of the first female brothers in Loyola University's Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi. Julie had dreams of becoming a writer, but family, friends, and frat brothers convinced her otherwise. Having held positions as junior officer at a downtown bank, office manager at an architectural firm, and financial advisor at a prestigious wealth management company, she realizes that the business degree was probably a good choice -- but fiction is truly her passion. Now, with some well-earned life experience behind her, she's delighted to finally be able to make writing a priority in her life.

PRAISE FOR JULIE HYZY'S WORK: 
State of the Onion, first in the White House Chef Mystery series:
"A compulsively readable whodunit full of juicy behind-the-Oval-Office details, flavorful characters, and a satisfying side dish of red herrings..."

~ Publishers Weekly
Grace Under Pressure, first in the Manor House Mystery series:
"Hyzy creates the well-researched and believable estate of Marshfield Manor, part mansion and part museum...Well-drawn characters like busybody secretary Frances, handsome landscape architect Jack, and stalking wannabe Ronny are supported by lively subplots, laying series groundwork to rival Marshfield Manor's own elaborate structure."

~ Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
