LET'S GET COZY! TULLE DEATH DO US PART: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
TULLE DEATH DO US PART
 A Vintage Magic Mystery
BY ANNETTE BLAIR 

ABOUT THE BOOK:
National bestselling author Annette Blair’s “fast-paced, fascinating” (Fresh Fiction) Vintage Magic series continues as clothing boutique owner Madeira Cutler takes on a murder from the past that won’t stay dead...

Maddie’s love of classic fashion has made her Vintage Magic boutique a success—even if the visions she experiences when touching certain items often lead her into trouble. Decades ago, at a Mystic Country Club costume ball, a secret scavenger hunt ended in an unexplained death, hastily concealed.

Now, Maddie’s invited to participate in a similar anniversary event: but one touch of the vintage petticoat used to hide evidence of the original crime hurtles Maddie into a scavenger hunt of her own. She must find missing petticoat pieces and re-stitch the clues it reveals...to expose a killer!

AN EXCERPT FROM TULLE DEATH DO US PART:
Last night, I bedazzled a hard hat. Crystals, and sequins, and bling—Oh my.

What else to wear to a roof-raising with black tuxedo-cut Hilfiger overalls, a tux shirt, and a pair of black velvet Belgian loafers? I mean, my Vintage Magic dress shop is now a construction zone. I have to be practical and fashion conscious.

Of course the unseasonably mild February weather, even for so short a jaunt outdoors, called for a mohair scarf from the English Lake district, and kid gloves, both in maize and neutral.

According to family legend, I’ve been a fashionista since they cut the cord, anointed me in sweet baby oil, and wrapped me in pink to match the bow in my hair. Then I grew up and became . . . well . . . a fashionista, the designing kind. Take that any way you like. I do.

I sell designer vintage classics, preferably haute couture, and personally design fashion forward one-of-a-kind originals. Designing also applies to the way I deal with the charming legacy bequeathed to me by my late mother, a discovery with—witch—I try daily to make a certain peace. That gift is not limited to “listening” to whatever vintage fashions “speak to me” and using those visions to help solve crimes, often as antique as my sources.

My name is Madeira Cutler, but I prefer Mad or Maddie.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Annette Blair's paranormal romantic comedies owe their beginnings to a root canal and a reluctant trip to Salem Massachusetts. Though she had once proclaimed she'd never write a contemporary, she stumbled into the serendipitous role of ‘Accidental Witch Writer’ on that trip. Funny how she managed to eat her words even with an aching jaw. Magic or destiny, Annette's Bewitching Romantic Comedies became her first National Bestsellers.

SEX AND THE PSYCHIC WITCH and GONE WITH THE WITCH, the first and second in her Triplet Witch Trilogy, became Barnes & Noble, Borders and Amazon Bestsellers, and topped the Nielsen BookScan bestseller list as well. NEVER BEEN WITCHED, third in the series will be released on February 3, 2009.

With over twenty-two novels published or contracted to date, Annette's work has garnered a Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Nomination, multiple HOLT Medallion nominations, Booksellers Best Awards, LORIES Awards, Laurel Wreath Awards, Blue Boa Awards of Excellence, Aspen Gold Awards, RIO Awards, Southern Magic, More than Magic, Orange Rose, Winter Rose, PRISM, and Beacon Awards of Excellence. Annette's been a Golden Leaf Award Finalist, a Preditors and Editors Best Book nominee, an Anne-Bonney Readers’ Choice Award Winner, a Laurie Finalist, a Write Touch Readers' Choice Award double winner, a Colorado Award of Excellence Finalist, a Desert Rose Golden Quill Award finalist, and a National Readers' Choice Award Finalist. SEX AND THE PSYCHIC WITCH is currently an Orange County Book Buyer's Best Award Finalist.
