LET'S GET COZY! A GALA EVENT: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY


GIVEAWAY ENDED
A GALA EVENT
An Orchard Mystery
BY SHEILA CONNOLLY

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Wedding bells are ringing for Meg and Seth in the latest Orchard Mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Picked to Die...

The fall harvest may be just about over, but orchard owner Meg Corey is busier than ever planning her wedding to Seth Chapin. Who knew picking apples would be less work than picking out rings and a dress? And even though the happy couple has invited most of Granford, Massachusetts, to the ceremony, they might have to make room for one more guest...

Ex-con Aaron Eastman has unexpectedly reappeared in his hometown, searching for answers to the tragic fire in his family's past that put him behind bars twenty-five years ago. Moved by his sincerity, Meg vows to do everything she can to help him solve the cold case. As she cobbles together the clues, it becomes increasingly clear that Aaron may have been considered the bad seed of the family, but someone else was one bad apple...

Includes Delicious Recipes!

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, appeared 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.

    A Gala Event sounds like a great mystery! I am curious regarding how the characters will investigate a solved case which happened 25 year ago, and how many witnesses are available (with good recall memory). I am looking forward to reading it. Thank you for the giveaway.

    I visited the author's website, I like how her books are displayed. (I didn't realize she had written so many books). I also like her Genealogy page.

    I wonder how she will figure out who killed Aaron's family and still have time to plan her wedding and have a harvest, too. I'd love to be along for the unveiling.
