LET'S GET COZY! BETWEEN A BOOK AND A HARD PLACE: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
BETWEEN A BOOK AND
A HARD PLACE
A Devereaux's Dime Story Mystery
BY DENISE SWANSON

ABOUT THE BOOK:
The New York Times bestselling author of Dying for a Cupcake returns with a new mystery filled with lost family, hidden treasure, and long-buried secrets…

Five-and-dime store owner Devereaux “Dev” Sinclair moved to Shadow Bend for her family. But when her long-lost mother shows up in town, she realizes too much kin can be killer…

Shadow Bend’s library closed years ago because of budgetary problems, so when a wealthy benefactor offers to reopen it, everyone, including Dev, is thrilled. But Dev’s excitement wanes when she realizes the mysterious donor is actually her runaway mother Yvette’s latest husband, Jett Benedict.

Dev suspects that Yvette and Jett’s intentions aren’t as noble as they appear, but before she can discover what they’re really up to, Jett turns up dead—and all clues point to Yvette as the prime suspect.

Even though Dev has no loyalty to Yvette, she’s in a bind. Setting the record straight could prove her mother is a killer. But doing nothing might get her mother booked for a crime she didn’t commit…

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Denise Swanson has worked as a school psychologist for 17 years. She lives in Illinois with her husband, Dave, and their cool black cat, Boomerang.

I have been reading this delightful Devereaux's Dime Story Mystery series, and I am looking forward to learning more about Dev's parents. Yvette, the "absent" mom, and new step father has intrigued me, and I am curious what Dev's reactions will be. Plus the fact Yvette and Jett may not be the "on the up and up". Sounds like a great read.

That sounds like a tough position to be in. Have a mother you don't have a relationship with who may or may not be a killer. I guess you do what you can either way. Sounds interesting. Just glad I don't have such problems.
