While we were down in Los Angeles, Mom had finished all the cozy mysteries I had brought with me and wanted to go to the bookstore to find something to read on the way home. She wanted to go, not me. I still had 6 books with me that I hadn't read yet.
So I picked up Killer Hair by Ellen Byerrum which had been recommended to me awhile back. After finishing it, she tells me I have to get the next one in the series right away for her to read.
Today I picked up books 2 - 5 in the series and she's already started book 2!
But while I was browsing in Murder by the Book, I came across an author I've read whose trade paperback title is not one that I recognized.
Advanced Reading Copy, Not For Sale
The Book of Old Houses
A Home Repair is Homicide
Sarah Graves, author of Trap Door
What would you do if a long-buried book was unearthed from the foundation of your 1823 fixer-upper - a book with your name written inside in blood? That's the mystery Jacobia "Jake" Tiptree faces in the midst of her latest renovations. But it's only the first in a cozy Maine town better known for it's scenic views and historic homes than its body count. Now Jake is putting aside her hammer and fixing to find someone who may have found the blueprint for the perfect murder.
