LET'S GET COZY! BLOWN AWAY: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

 
BLOWN AWAY
A Kite Shop Mystery
BY CLOVER TATE

ABOUT THE BOOK:
In the all-new Kite Shop Mystery series set in the beachside community of Rock Point, Oregon, kite shop owner Emmy Adler gets swept up in a murder investigation.

Emmy is finally living her dream. She’s moved to the coastal town of Rock Point, Oregon, and is starting a kite business. Strings Attached features her own unique designs, inspired by everything from Picasso to Matisse’s colorful cutouts. Her spirits are soaring sky-high the morning of the grand opening—until she stumbles upon a dead man washed up on the beach.

The body belongs to local chef Miles Logan, and the gash across his chest indicates he’s been murdered. The sheriff suspects Emmy’s best friend, Avery, who used to date the chef. Emmy is sure Avery would never hurt anyone, but her pal doesn’t have an alibi for the night of the murder. With Avery’s freedom and the fate of her kite shop up in the air, Emmy takes it upon herself to follow the string of clues and solve the murder before the real killer takes flight.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Clover Tate, AKA Angela Sanders, is a former congressional investigator and the author of Blown Away, the debut novel in the Kite Shop Mystery series.

 

PRAISE FOR BLOWN AWAY:
“Clover Tate’s well-crafted plot soars in Blown Away, first in the Kite Shop Mysteries. First person narrator, Emmy Adler, moves to Rock Point for a new adventure. She’s barely settled in when she finds a man’s body on the beach, propelling her into one scary situation after the next, as she works to uncover the killer’s identity. Tate breathes life into a fine group of characters, from quirky to cagey to caring. I envision them holding onto the strings of airborne kites, as they carry the story from one high point to the next. She deftly swirls suspicion around a number of them, building breath-holding tension until the final reveal. Two thumbs’ up for Blown Away.”
~ Christine Husom, author of the Snow Globe Shop Mysteries and the Winnebago County Mysteries.
“Tate has stitched together a clever plot filled with greed and generosity, whimsy and intent, friendship and murder. Emmy and her kite shop will blow you away!”
~ Fran Stewart, author of the Biscuit McKee Mystery Series and the ScotShop Mysteries
“Atmospheric. Tate perfectly captures the moody and mysterious Pacific Northwest coast in her soaring debut. With a quirky yet loveable cast of characters, page turning plot, and a strong, artistic heroine Blown Away will leave you nostalgic for summers spent with toes in the sand and colorful kites flying overhead.”
~ Kate Dyer-Seeley, author of the Pacific Northwest mysteries

I like beach stories with their quirky characters. It reminds me of Venice Beach and Santa Monica.
