Ah, Easter. Flowers springing everywhere, chocolate cravings satisfied, and new beginnings. of course, What could be more appropriate for Easter than the tale of a heavily-pregnant heroine moving to a quaint English village and investigating a murder?
OK, maybe I’m stretching it a bit, but if you’re in the US or UK then the first book in my Pippa Parker cozy mystery series, Murder At The Playgroup, is discounted to just 99p/99c today. It should stay at that price for Easter weekend, so if you know any other cozy mystery readers, share this post or tip them the wink.
Here’s the blurb:
Pippa Parker never wanted to move to the chocolate-box village of Much Gadding in the first place. When she meets the locals, she’s absolutely sure. There’s just one problem; she’s 8 months pregnant.
The village is turned upside down when Barbara Hamilton, pillar of the community, is found dead at Gadding Goslings playgroup. No one could have murdered her except the people who were there. Everyone’s a suspect, including Pippa…
With a baby due any minute, and hampered by her toddler son, can Pippa unmask the murderer? Will Much Gadding return to normal? And does anyone in Much Gadding even know what normal is?
Some more news: I’m currently editing the third book in the Pippa Parker series, A Fete Worse Than Death, and hoping to get it to my beta readers very soon, with a late spring/early summer publication date. Cover reveal coming soon!
Oh, and if you’re looking for something even more Easter-y, my annual Egg Hunt is up on the blog. Enjoy!
