LET'S GET COZY! RAZING THE DEAD: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
RAZING THE DEAD
A Museum Mystery
BY SHEILA CONNOLLY

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Once again Nell Pratt has to dig into the past to solve a murder in the present...

Between the challenges of her position as president of the Pennsylvania Antiquarian Society in Philadelphia and of taking her relationship with FBI agent James Morrison to the next level, Nell Pratt has got her hands full. Nevertheless, when a powerful developer approaches the Society to make sure the old dairy farm he wants to level is not hiding any archeological or historical surprises that could derail the project he’s planning, Nell decides to make time to personally accompany him to the proposed site.

But when they get to the property, they stumble upon a startling discovery—a body floating facedown in a pond. The dead man turns out to be an amateur history enthusiast, who may have uncovered secrets about the farm that got him killed. Now it’s up to Nell and James to get to the bottom of things before there are more deadly developments...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Pseudonym for Sarah Atwell.

Sheila Connolly is two people these days: herself and Sarah Atwell.

Sarah is writing a new mystery series for Berkley Prime Crime. The first book of the Glassblowing Mystery series, Through a Glass, Deadly, was published March 4, 2008.

Sheila is writing a second new mystery series for Berkley Prime Crime. The first book of the Orchard Mystery series, One Bad Apple, will appear in August 2008.

Sheila's vital statistics: Married (to my first and only husband), one daughter, three cats. I live in a Victorian home in Massachusetts, not far from Cape Cod. I have more degrees than I know what to do with. Over the course of my life, I've lived in seven states, nineteen towns, and two foreign countries.

During my long and varied career, I've been:
--an art historian (medieval architecture)
--an investment banker in San Francisco and Philadelphia
--a non-profit fundraiser
--a professional genealogist (I had my own business, Lost Ancestors)
--and finally, a mystery writer.

I really hope the writer label sticks, because I'm having a great time.

I love to travel, I can fix almost anything around an old house, and I'm passionate about genealogy.

I'm fascinated by the architectural history element of the story.

Somehow I've missed this series - and it sounds fascinating. It's amazing what is discovered today when excavations for new buildings are started.

I remember when I first started reading these, I was a little unsure of the setting. It turns out the Society is a perfect place for a cozy and I already had known the author from the Orchard series. Looking forward to more excitement with Nell. Thanks!

I like that they check for artifacts before making major changes to the landscape but, who would imagine finding a body. I'd like to find out the story surrounding the poor dead man.
