LET'S GET COZY! LET IT SEW: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

 
 GIVEAWAY ENDED
LET IT SEW
A Southern Sewing Circle Mystery
BY ELIZABETH LYNN CASEY

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Down south, the holidays mean family—and for Yankee librarian Tori Sinclair, family means the Sweet Briar Ladies Society sewing circle. It may not be a white Christmas, but it’s one she’ll never forget—no matter how hard she tries…
Instead of spending a nice, relaxing Christmas with her fiancé, Tori Sinclair has been drafted into Sweet Briar’s holiday Decorating Committee. And the season has brought sad tidings as well: Charlotte Devereaux, a sewing circle founding member who unraveled after her storybook marriage fell apart, has passed away.
Charlotte’s last days were foggy, distressed, and feverish… except for the sketches she produced. One detail in particular jumps out at Tori and leads to a shocking revelation: Charlotte’s husband didn’t leave her—he was murdered! And as she gets closer to the truth, Tori will discover that just about everyone in town has got notches on the naughty list this year.

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 want to read this book because it has a Christmas theme to it and I want to read a good cozy mystery right now. Plus it sounds fabulous and I haven't read this author before.

All my comments disappeared! Can't understand it! Will start all over again! Carol

I want to read this book because I love to read cozies with circles of women who sew, craft or knit together. They seem to work together on the crime!

This looks like a good cozy for the Holidays. I like the combination of the sewing circle, the murder, and the romance. Thanks for the giveaway.
