LET'S GET COZY! MURDER AFTER A FASHION: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

 

GIVEAWAY ENDED
MURDER AFTER A FASHION
An Accessories Mystery
BY GRACE CARROLL
ABOUT THE BOOK:
These days, not even a new wardrobe can keep fashionista Rita Jewel from feeling blue. Perhaps the cure is a cooking class with a celebrity chef! But her appetite is ruined when murder becomes the main course...

As a salesgirl at Dolce’s, a chic boutique outfitting San Francisco’s wealthiest women, Rita has the world’s greatest job. So why does she feel like last season’s Christian Louboutin stilettos—worn and out of style? Maybe it’s because her love life needs a makeover ASAP. From carrots to caviar, Guido Torcelli is the celebrity chef du jour. Perhaps signing up for his cooking class will serve as a much-needed distraction for Rita.

But when Guido’s shot to death, Rita knows she’ll soon top the list of suspects. Guido was killed at his culinary school the same night she scrawled her phone number on a menu and handed it to him. Now she’s got to find the murderer before she’s forced to take all her meals in the prison cafeteria...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Carol Grace Culver (aka Grace Carroll) was born with wanderlust. She was raised in Illinois, but longed to travel. She spent her junior year in college at the Sorbonne in Paris. Armed with a BA in French, she went to San Francisco to seek her fame and fortune. There she landed a job as switchboard operator and receptionist at KQED, the public TV station, where she met her future husband and did on-the-air promos in French for her idol, Julia Child, showing her parents that French was a useful major after all.

Restless after five years, she joined the hospital ship HOPE for three voyages — Guinea, Nicaragua, and Tunisia. After she married, she and her husband went to Algeria and Iran to work. They loved the excitement of living abroad, but returned to California to raise their two children in their mountain-top home overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Carol says that writing is another way of making life exciting.

Carol has published over 35 romance novels for Harlequin/Silhouette. She’s written 2 single title romances and three Young Adult novels. She is currently writing mysteries. The first — A GOOD DAY TO PIE — was published in August 2011, the second SHOE DONE IT in October 2011. To read more about author Grace Carroll, visit her website "Bio" HERE.

I'd like to find out how she uncovers the killer. And how does giving your name and number make you the prime suspect?

Linda Kish said...

I love the way she starts her days... 'She takes hour-long morning walks along redwood-lined trails, planning the day or pondering her writing.' I am so jealous.
