LET'S GET COZY! HERALD OF DEATH: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

 HERALD OF DEATH
A Special Pennyfoot Hotel Mystery
BY KATE KINGSBURY

ABOUT THE BOOK:
The landscape of the Pennyfoot is covered with splashes of rich reds and greens for the holidays. That should not include blood. However, a killer is on the loose, bent on ending some residents’ good times…

The Christmas Angel is a welcome sight during the winter season—but not this year. A killer is afoot in Badgers End, cutting a lock of hair from the victims and sticking a gold angel on their foreheads. Cecily Sinclair Baxter already promised her husband that she’d take a hiatus from sleuthing. But three killings have created a blizzard of bad publicity—and guests are canceling their hotel reservations.

Cecily pokes around, but the victims seem unrelated. Then the killer claims a fourth and fifth victim, obviously not slowing down for the holidays—so neither will Cecily. She will have to stop the angel of death from striking again, leaving murder under the tree…

AN EXCERPT FROM HERALD OF DEATH: 
Chapter 1
The snow started falling the week before the first Christmas guest was due to arrive at the Pennyfoot Country Club. It began with just a few flakes that drifted on the wind and eventually disappeared into the gray ocean. Soon, however, the flakes grew thicker, fell faster, and a soft white carpet blanketed the sands.

Horses struggled along the Esplanade, dragging carriages that slid from side to side, until the icy ruts had worn deep enough to prevent the wheels from wandering.

Beyond the cliffs the snow clung to the bare branches of the oaks, gently covered the grass on Putney Downs, and partially buried the lifeless body of the elderly gentleman lying on the path, leaving only a bedraggled dog to mourn his departure.

I've enjoyed several Pennyfoot mysteries. I really like Cecily's character, especially for the time she lives in.
