LET'S GET COZY! JUST KILLING TIME: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY


GIVEAWAY ENDED
JUST KILLING TIME
A Clock Shop Mystery
BY JULIANNE HOLMES

ABOUT THE BOOK:
First in a new cozy series that ticks with excitement and mystery!

Ruth Clagan may be an expert clockmaker, but she's always had a tendency to lose track of time. And when trying to solve a murder, every minute counts...

Ruth's beloved grandfather instilled in her a love of timepieces. Unfortunately after her grandmother died and he remarried, Ruth and Grandpa Thom became estranged. She's wanted to reconnect after her recent divorce, but sadly they've run out of time. Her grandfather has been found dead after a break-in at his shop--and the police believe he was murdered.

Now Ruth has been named the heir to Grandpa Thom's clock shop, the Cog & Sprocket, in the small Berkshire town of Orchard, Massachusetts. As soon as she moves into the small apartment above the shop and begins tackling the heaps of unfinished work, Ruth finds herself trying to stay on the good side of Grandpa's bossy gray cat, Bezel, while avoiding the step- grandmother she never wanted. But as old secrets and grudges start to surface, Ruth will have to kick into high gear to solve the killer case before someone else winds up dead...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

I wear many hats, and have a few different names.

As J.A. Hennrikus, my short story, "Tag, You're Dead" was published in Level Best Book's anthology Thin Ice. "Her Wish" is in Dead Calm. And "The Pendulum Swings, Until It Doesn't" was published in Blood Moon. I am one of many authors who had their publishing debut via Level Best Books, and am forever grateful to the editors.

As Julie Hennrikus, I am the Executive Director of StageSource, a service organization for theater artists and companies in the greater Boston area. For me, theater is both my vocation and my avocation. I also teach arts management classes at Emerson College.

Julianne Holmes writes the Clock Shop Mystery Series for Berkley Prime Crime. What a thrill-a dream come true. Just Killing Time was published in October 2015. Clock and Dagger will be released in 2016, and I am working on book 3 now. I hope you enjoy meeting Ruth Clagan and following her adventures as much as I like writing them.

Just Killing Time sounds like a great book, and I like to see how Ruth's relationships develop with the step-grandmother and the cat (while trying to solve a murder).

I never had a wonderful relationship with my step-grandmother either but I loved my grandpa. Too bad he lived halfway across the country. And, amazing coincidence, he rebuilt old clocks. I have a newspaper photo to prove it. Not murdered, thankfully.

I'd like to read this and find out what she uncovers in all of that paperwork in his apartment over the shop.
