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

 
GIVEAWAY ENDED 
LOOMING MURDER
A Weaving Mystery
BY CAROL ANN MARTIN
 
ABOUT THE BOOK: 
Della Wright has come to peaceful and picturesque Briar Hollow, at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, to realize her lifelong dream of owning a weaving studio. To promote her new business, Dream Weavers, Della is offering weaving workshops for all levels of ability. In her first class, she meets half a dozen of the town’s colorful characters, who seem as eager to gossip as to learn how to work a loom.

But when a shady local businessman is found murdered, Briar Hollow suddenly appears a lot less idyllic. And when one of her weaving students is suspected of the crime, Della can’t help getting entangled in the investigation—with some help from her criminologist friend, Matthew. But can she weave together clues as well as she weaves together yarn—and stop a killer from striking again?

FEATURES WEAVING TIPS!
  
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Monique (aka Carol Ann Martin) was born in the small town of Hearst Ontario. She is the oldest of ten children. When she was twenty years old she moved to Montreal, where she became a successful model, winning the prestigious Modeling Association of American Contest and continuing on to an international career. When she retired from modeling she founded Beauties Modeling Agency in Montreal.

At the age of forty two, Monique, by then a financial advisor with one of Canada’s largest investment firms, was picked to host her own television show, Her Money, a weekly financial-advice show aimed to a female audience. During all these other careers, Monique’s real passion was always writing.

Monique currently lives with her physician husband and their three dogs. They divide their time between their homes in Canada and La Jolla. Monique also writes under the pen name of Carol Ann Martin. She says she came up with that name by combining her daughter’s—Carole Ann—and her son’s—Martin. LOOMING MURDER is her first book with her new pen name.

I like cozies centered around hobbies. I don't know about looms or weaving. Learning about those hobbies would really make the cozy extra special.

FOR Tea Norman:

+1 I found it interesting how the publishers and author communicate about the manuscript. There is far more than one edit. That's for sure.
