LET'S GET COZY! WELL READ, THEN DEAD: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
WELL READ, THEN DEAD
A Read 'Em and Eat Mystery
BY TERRIE FARLEY MORAN

ABOUT THE BOOK:
First in a new series!

Nestled in the barrier islands of Florida’s Gulf Coast, Fort Myers Beach is home to Mary “Sassy” Cabot and Bridget Mayfield—owners of the bookstore cafĂ©eacute;, Read ’Em and Eat. But when they’re not dishing about books or serving up scones, Sassy and Bridgy are keeping tabs on hard-boiled murder.

Read ’Em and Eat is known for its delicious breakfast and lunch treats, along with quite a colorful clientele. If it’s not Rowena Gustavson loudly debating the merits of the current book club selection, it’s Miss Augusta Maddox lecturing tourists on rumors of sunken treasure among the islands. It’s no wonder Sassy’s favorite is Delia Batson, a regular at the Emily Dickinson table. Augusta’s cousin and best friend Delia is painfully shy—which makes the news of her murder all the more shocking.

No one is more distraught than Augusta, and Sassy wants to help any way she can. But Augusta doesn’t have time for sympathy. She wants Delia’s killer found—and she’s not taking no for an answer. Now Sassy is on the case, and she’d better act fast before there’s any more trouble in paradise.

Includes a buttermilk pie recipe!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Terrie Farley Moran is the author of Well Read, Then Dead, the first cozy mystery in the Read ’Em and Eat series published by Berkley Prime Crime. She also writes short mystery fiction which has been published in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine and various anthologies, including the Mystery Writers of America anthology Crimes by Moonlight. Her work has been short-listed twice for Best American Mystery Stories. Terrie’s website is www.terriefarleymoran.com, and you can find her blogging amid the grand banter of an eclectic group of writers known as the Women of Mystery, at www.womenofmystery.net.

PRAISE FOR WELL READ, THEN DEAD:

“A terrific new spin on the culinary cozy—with a great story, plenty of heart, and compelling characters. Sassy—who really is sassy— and her cheeky roster of friends sparkle as brightly as the sun on the Gulf of Mexico.” —Laura Childs, New York Times bestselling author of Steeped in Evil

“BOOKLOVER ALERT: Well Read, Then Dead celebrates books, food, laughter, friendship, and, oh yes, dark dire doings. Clever, original, and sure to please.” —Carolyn Hart, national bestselling author of Death at the Door “

Solving crime with Sassy and Bridget is nothing short of delightful.” —Laura Bradford, national bestselling author of Shunned and Dangerous

“I’ve long enjoyed the short fiction of Terrie Moran, and I’m thrilled to see her expand her talents to the novel with Well Read, Then Dead. Set in a paradise Florida island town, with lovable and quirky characters and a combination bookstore/ cafĂ© that I wish was in my own hometown, Terrie’s well­ plotted novel tells a tale of murder, old secrets, and friends­ for­ life who will do what it takes to protect their loved ones and way of life. Very much recommended.” —Brendan DuBois, two ­time Shamus Award– winning author of Fatal Harbor
