A Debut Not To Be Missed.

What a week for good news! Another friend, mystery writer Kate Carlisle, will see her debut novel HOMICIDE IN HARDCOVER hit the bookstore shelves on February 3rd! It's the first in a new bibliophile series. I'm so, so thrilled for her!!

And HOMICIDE IN HARDCOVER also garnered 4 1/2 Stars from Romantic Times Book Review! Here's RT's review:

"This first in a new series is going to launch Carlisle to a bestselling position and have readers looking forward to the next installment of delightfully eccentric characters, droll dialogue and a meticulously planned crime. Bibliophile heroine Brooklyn Wainwright is brilliant, feisty and funny."

About the book (from Amazon):
"The streets of San Francisco would be lined with hardcovers if rare book expert Brooklyn Wainwright had her way. And her mentor wouldn’t be lying in a pool of his own blood on the eve of a celebration for his latest book restoration.

With his final breath he leaves Brooklyn a cryptic message, and gives her a priceless—and supposedly cursed—copy of Goethe’s Faust for safekeeping.

Brooklyn suddenly finds herself accused of murder and theft, thanks to the humorless—but attractive—British security officer who finds her kneeling over the body. Now she has to read the clues left behind by her mentor if she is going to restore justice…"

Kate Carlisle is running a contest all this week in anticipation of the release of her novel. She's giving away a Launch Party Package chock full of good things... be sure to check it out. :)
