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

 
GIVEAWAY ENDED 
REMNANTS OF MURDER
 A Southern Sewing Circle Mystery
BY ELIZABETH LYNN CASEY
ABOUT THE BOOK:
When a cantankerous Sweet Briar resident ends up six feet under, the ladies of the sewing circle have to deal with a town full of suspects...

With the library’s budget dwindling, Tori Sinclair is forced to let go of her predecessor, and fellow sewing circle member, Dixie Dunn. After losing her job a second time, Dixie decides to volunteer for Home Fare, delivering meals to the homebound.

Less than a week after Dixie starts, her client Clyde Montgomery is found dead. The police think he died of old age, but with most of the town badgering Clyde to sell his picturesque land, his passing seems a little too convenient.

Determined to prove that Clyde was murdered, Dixie asks Tori for some sleuthing assistance. But with so many Sweet Briar residents in possession of a compelling motive, the sewing circle ladies will have to needle out the truth to find the killer... 

AN EXCERPT FROM REMNANTS OF MURDER:
Chapter One
Tori Sinclair heard the voice droning on in her ear, bits and pieces of the man’s words mingling intermittently with the more enviable conversation taking place on the other side of the office between her fresh-off-maternity- leave assistant, Nina Morgan, and her predecessor-turned- nemesis-turned-trusty-right-hand, Dixie Dunn.
On any other day, or at any other moment, such a sight would have had her smiling and champing at the bit for a chance to chime in on her all-time favorite subject. But it wasn’t any other day. And it wasn’t any other moment.
“I’m sure you can appreciate our position on this, Victoria. Times are tough. Funding is being cut all across the country. This isn’t personal.”
The head librarian part of her knew Winston Hohlbrook was right. The board president had proven himself to be an advocate for Tori and the library since her first day on the job.
But the part of her that had gotten to know Dixie better during Nina’s absence couldn’t help but feel the knot of dread that had taken up residence in her stomach the moment Winston had gotten to the point of his early morning phone call.
“It’s a logical move. You and Nina have always handled things fine on your own and you’ll do so again.” Winston cleared his throat and continued, the conviction in his voice doing little to soften the impact of his words. “Now don’t get me wrong, Victoria. The board and I have greatly appreciated Dixie’s willingness to pinch-hit from time to time over the past nine months. But she’s—” TO FINISH READING THIS EXCERPT, VISIT THE AUTHOR'S WEBSITE HERE. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Pseudonym: Laura Bradford. 

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.
