Hey, Wicked People, it’s Jane/Susannah, back from her little cabin in the North Woods and happy to be home and back at work and away from the mosquitoes.
Today I thought I’d introduce you to, well, me. Another me.
Most of you know about my Greek to Me Mysteries, starting with Feta Attraction which released in January. The second book in that series, Olive and Let Die, releases November 3 and is available for preorder now (everybody knows how much preorders help an author, right? Right.).
But what I haven’t generally made known until today is that I have a new series debuting in November. On November 24, I will release Yarned and Dangerous, Book 1 of the Tangled Web Mysteries from Kensington. A new publisher means a new pen name. And do you love this cover or what?
I had SO much fun writing this book. My main character, Josie Blair, moved away from Dorset Falls, Connecticut, right after high school to pursue a career in fashion design. But when her crotchety great-uncle, Eben Lloyd, breaks his leg in a car accident, the same accident that killed Cora, his wife of a few months, Josie’s the only one available to care for him. While she’s there, she is tasked with closing up Cora’s yarn shop, even though she doesn’t know anything about knitting. But the day after she arrives, one of the shop’s regular customers ends up dead, lying on a pile of expensive cashmere yarn in the storeroom. Josie begins to investigate, and in the process learns a little about herself, and a lot about what she wants–and doesn’t want–for her life.
Here’s what somebody we all know and love had to say about Yarned and Dangerous:
“A tale of murder and intrigue that will ensnare knitters and non-knitters alike. I couldn’t put it down.”—Barbara Ross, author of Musseled Out
