LET'S GET COZY! KEEPING MUM: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED 
KEEPING MUM
A Garden Society Mystery
BY ALYSE CARLSON

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Roanoke, Virginia, is home to some of the country’s most exquisite gardens, and it’s Camellia Harris’s job to promote them. But when a political fundraiser turns deadly, everyone’s a candidate for murder...

Cam and her best friend, Annie, are planning a gala for a local Senate candidate—a murder mystery themed silent auction where the guests bid on who will be the night’s “victim.” Coordinating a beautiful display of fall flowers and planning the perfect fake crime is hard enough, but with a guest list that is a “who’s who” of the Roanoke elite, Cam has her hands full navigating the egos and grudges of her high society guests.

When local financial tycoon Derrick Windermere is found dead next to a shattered pot of chrysanthemums, the night’s fun and games quickly turn serious. Half the guests had good reason to want Windermere dead, but only one is suspiciously missing in action—Annie’s father. Now Cam will not only have to figure out which partygoer is a killer, but find her friend’s father before all their reputations end up dragged through the mud... 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Alyse Carlson is the pen name for Hart Johnson who writes books from her bathtub. By day she is an academic researcher at a large midwestern university. She lives with her husband, two teenage children and two fur balls. The dust bunnies don't count. This is her second published book.

Having your father missing is a great big incentive to solving a murder mystery. That draws me into this cozy.

Without even reading anything about the book the cover is very lyrical and drew my attention. Also the fact it happens at a political fundraiser I'm thinking there could be many suspects.

When I went to Alyse Carlson's I had to read further because I found it interesting that the book I first saw was "Be Careful What You Wish For" "Cover Reveal:Warning: Spicy" . Not a cozy mystery. It's her friend's book. I did find out her other pen name is Hart Johnson where she writes a different genre than cozies.
