LET'S GET COZY! LAW AND AUTHOR: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
LAW AND AUTHOR
An Ashton Corners Book Club Mystery
BY ERIKA CHASE

ABOUT THE BOOK:
The author of Book Fair and Foul reconvenes the Ashton Corners book club to solve a murder in their own backyard . . .

Bob Miller, retired police chief and member of the Ashton Corners Mystery Readers and Cheese Straws Society, is stunned by the arrival of his twenty-one-year-old granddaughter, Darla, whom he has never seen. Bob has been estranged from his own daughter for decades and hopes to make up for his absence in Darla’s life. But some of the ladies of the book club find their Southern hospitality strained as they question the motives behind this sudden reunion.

After a dead man is found in Molly Mathews’s backyard, their concerns grow more serious. Lizzie Turner saw Darla arguing with the stranger the day before, but when the police question her, Darla proves to be an unreliable narrator. It’s up to the book club to uncover the real story . . . before another victim is written into the plot.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Erika writes the Ashton Corners Book Club mysteries for Penguin/Berkley Prime Crime. In a parallel life Erika Chase is also known as Linda Wiken. A former mystery bookstore owner (Prime Crime Books in Ottawa, ON, Canada), Linda is also a short story writer. She is a member of those dangerous dames, The Ladies’ Killing Circle.

Her short stories have appeared in the seven Ladies’ Killing Circle anthologies (three of which she co-edited), and in the magazines Mysterious Intent and Over My Dead Body. She has been short-listed for an Arthur Ellis Award, Best Short Story, from Crime Writers of Canada.

Before life in the world of mystery, she worked as an advertising copywriter, radio producer, journalist and community education worker. Besides writing and reading mysteries, her other passion is choral singing and she is a member of two choirs.

She shares her house with Keesha and Mojo, her two Siamese cats. Actually, they allow her to live there.

thank you for the chance to win! This is a fun series - I didn't realize that the author has Siamese cats, which is why they are so well-defined in this series! And I had forgotten about the treat I hadn't heard of before, the cheese straws!

Didn't know that Erika has an alter ego, Linda Wiken, a member of Ladies' Killing Circle (had not heard of that group, either, probably being a group in Canada?)

Curious that Darla showed up unannounced and that she argued with the man the day before he died. I wonder what she had to do with it, if anything. And, what does she want from Bob? I guess I should read the book to find out.
