LET'S GET COZY! A KILLING NOTION: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY


 
GIVEAWAY ENDED
KILLING NOTION
A Magical Dressmaking Mystery
BY MELISSA BOURBON

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Harlow Jane Cassidy is swamped with homecoming couture requests. If only she didn’t have to help solve a murder, she might get the gowns off the dress forms....

Harlow is doing everything she can to expand her dressmaking business, Buttons & Bows—without letting clients know about her secret charm. When she has a chance to create homecoming dresses with a local charity and handmade mums for several high school girls—including Gracie, whose father, Will, has mended Harlow’s heart—she is ready to use her magical talents for a great cause.

But when Gracie’s date for the dance is accused of murder, Harlow knows things won’t be back on course until she helps Gracie clear the football player’s name. If Harlow can’t patch up this mess before the big game, her business and her love life might be permanently benched.

INCLUDES SEWING TIPS

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Melissa Bourbon, who sometimes answers to her Latina-by-marriage name Misa Ramirez, gave up teaching middle and high school kids in Northern California to write full-time amidst horses and Longhorns in North Texas. She fantasizes about spending summers writing in quaint, cozy locales, has a love/hate relationship with yoga and chocolate, is devoted to her family, and can’t believe she’s lucky enough to be living the life of her dreams.

She is the author of the Lola Cruz Mystery series with St. Martin’s Minotaur, A Magical Dressmaking Mystery series with NAL, and co-author (with Tonya Kappes) of The Tricked Out Toolbox.

I want to read it because the main sleuth owns a dressmaking shop and sounds like an interesting character.

This sounds like a fun cozy. The dressmaking backdrop to the story intrigues me, since I like to sew. Thanks for the giveaway, Karen.

The recipe for Pico de Gallo on her website looks interesting. We make this quite often, but have never added garlic to the mix.

I love sewing, reading and mysteries. This book combines all three. Thanks!

What a sad thing for a high school footballer to be accused of murder. I'd like to see how she clears him and who really did it (and all while she is making dresses).

Misa came from the Chinese cooks at the Orange Hut, a restaurant she worked at during her third year in college. They couldn’t quite say Missy, her nickname since childhood, and it came out Misa.

Dressmaking in a small town sounds like fun. It sounds interesting that dressmaker Harlow has a love interest that is inadvertently involved because of his daughter's boyfriend accused of murder. Hmmmm.

Before becoming a cozy mystery writer she taught middle school Language Arts. After getting married she had five kids!! She found out writing children's books was not her genre.
