LET'S GET COZY! SUEDE TO REST: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
SUEDE TO REST
A Material Witness Mystery
BY DIANE VALLERE

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Unraveling family secrets can be murder in Suede to Rest…
THE FIRST BOOK IN THE ALL-NEW “MATERIAL WITNESS” MYSTERY SERIES

With her career as a dress designer in shreds, Polyester Monroe is looking forward to a fresh start. But as it all unfolds, the pattern to a new beginning looks a lot like murder.

When Poly Monroe was little, she loved playing in her family’s textile store. But after a fatal family tragedy, Land of A Thousand Fabrics was boarded up and Poly never expected to see the inside again. Now, as inheritor of the long-shuttered shop, she’s ready to restore the family business. However her two new kittens, Pins and Needles, aren’t the ones causing a snag in her plans…

Not everyone wants Poly back in San LadrĂ³n, especially a powerful local developer pressuring her to sell—and leave town fast. But even when the threats turn deadly, she’s not ready to bolt. Because Poly is beginning to suspect that the murder behind the shop is tied to a mystery in her family’s unsettled past that she’s determined to solve…before her own life is left hanging by a thread.

INCLUDES A CRAFT PROJECT

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
I’m a former fashion buyer turned mystery writer, trading fashion accessories for accessories to murder. I was bit by the mystery bug as a kid reading Trixie Belden, Connie Blair, and The Three Investigators. Now I’m writing three series: the Style & Error Mysteries, the Mad for Mod Mysteries, and the upcoming Material Witness Mysteries.

The Style & Error Series features former fashion buyer turned amateur sleuth Samantha Kidd. Books in that series include DESIGNER DIRTY LAUNDRY, BUYER, BEWARE, and THE BRIM REAPER. (A short story, “Just Kidding,” tells the story of how Samantha first met shoe designer Nick Taylor). Book 4, SOME LIKE IT HAUTE, will be out in late 2014.

The Mad for Mod Mystery Series, recently acquired by Henery Press, feature Doris Day-loving, Midcentury Modern interior decorator Madison Night and her faithful Shih Tzu Rock. Books are PILLOW STALK and THAT TOUCH OF INK. A prequel novella, “Midnight Ice,” can be found in OTHER PEOPLE’S BAGGAGE. Look for the third book in this series, WITH VICS YOU GET EGGROLL, in 2015.

The Material Witness Mystery Series, will be coming from Berkley Prime Crime in November 2014. These feature Polyester Monroe, who has inherited a fabric store (and a couple of questions about her family's past) from her great uncle. First up is SUEDE TO REST.

Polyester...such a fun name. I'd like to see how the murder relates to the shop being previously closed. And, how she rids herself of the developer, too.
