LET'S GET COZY! MURDER, PLAINLY READ: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
MURDER, PLAINLY READ
An Amish Quilt Shop Mystery
BY ISABELLA ALAN

ABOUT THE BOOK:
In the latest from the author of Murder, Served Simply, an Amish man checks out permanently, but quilt shop owner Angie Braddock's got this mystery covered...

With so much to do between running her shop and spending time with her new boyfriend, it's amazing Angie is able to help organize the Rolling Brook library's annual book sale. Luckily she's working alongside brash librarian Austina Shaker, a lady who isn't afraid to make waves to get books to her patrons--even the Amish. Unfortunately, this draws the ire of cranky Bartholomew Belier, an Old Order Amish bishop, who publicly vows to ruin Austina.

And she certainly might be ruined after Belier is found dead in her bookmobile. Now Angie must employ the help of her loyal quilting circle--as well as her beloved French bulldog, Oliver--if she hopes to prove Austina's innocence before the real killer books it...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Isabella Alan is the pseudonym for Amanda Flower. Amanda Flower, an Agatha-nominated mystery author, started her writing career in elementary school when she read a story she wrote to her sixth grade class and had the class in stitches with her description of being stuck on the top of a Ferris wheel. She knew at that moment she’d found her calling of making people laugh with her words. Her debut mystery, Maid of Murder, was an Agatha Award Nominee for Best First Novel. Amanda is an academic librarian for a small college near Cleveland.

I can't picture a librarian, brash or otherwise, being pushed to murder especially in her bookmobile. You might get blood on the books. That wouldn't be fun to clean up. I'd like to see how this works out. I've always liked the Amish ways.

First, I love this series and eagerly await release of each new book - just was not able to get my hands on a copy yet. One thing in the write-up that interests me even more is the bookmobile for the library, being a fan of bookmobile mysteries - and a Bishop threatening to ruin the librarian? So much to enjoy in this latest book!!
Congrats, Isabella Alan, for the new release!! jeaniedannheim *at* ymail (dot) com

Mama Cat said...

I had forgotten that this author writes books for children; that is interesting! Not every author is so multi-talented as to write for adults and for children - and to write beautifully 'clean' novels for we cozy mystery lovers! jeaniedannheim (at) ymail (dot) com
