LET'S GET COZY! BODICE OF EVIDENCE: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY


GIVEAWAY ENDED
BODICE OF EVIDENCE
A Perfect Proposals Mystery
BY NANCY J. PARRA

ABOUT THE BOOK:
The author of Engaged in Murder returns with her second Perfect Proposals Mystery. This time Pepper Pomeroy discovers that shopping for the dream wedding dress can be a nightmare…

Pepper’s new wedding proposal planning business, Perfect Proposals, seems like a perfect fit. If only shopping for her sister Felicity’s bridal gown could be so simple.

After a long day of lace, tulle, and tears, Pepper, Felicity, and their mother pull it together to try one last bridal boutique. Maybe they’ll be surprised. And indeed they are—when they enter a deserted shop and soon discover the owner of the boutique slain in the alley out back.

Distressed by their proximity to the crime, Pepper vows to unveil the killer. As difficult as it is to draw a pattern from the clues, it’s still easier than finding Felicity’s perfect wedding gown. But as the killer begins to feel hemmed in, Pepper may be the one brought to her knees…

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Nancy J. Parra’s discovered she had a severe gluten allergy and had to give up her second favorite passed-time, baking. Six months into her forced new diet, she was back in the kitchen figuring out how to make her own gluten-free baked goods and soon posted delicious pictures on the web. When a good friend suggested she mix her two loves—baking and writing, she wrote her first cozy mystery, GLUTEN FOR PUNISHMENT, Berkley Prime Crime May 7, 2013.

On a happy roll, she soon sold a Mackinac Island Fudge Shop Mystery series. ALL FUDGED UP (writing as Nancy CoCo) will be out November 5, 2013.

With an MA in Writing Popular Fiction, Ms. Parra has written articles on writing, and has given workshops on writing techniques to various library and writers groups. She has a blog on the art and craft of writing, www.nancyjparra.blogspot.com.

I adore cozy mysteries! Sometimes on YouTube, I watch "Say Yes to the Dress" which features all these beautiful weeding gowns. To have a chance to read a cozy mystery with a wedding gown theme is going to be fun!

The entire idea of a proposal planning business is crazy to me! Proposals and asking people to prom are becoming more elaborate than the actual events. I'd love to read this book. I put the first one on my GR list.
