I just got a contract for my cozy mystery, A Suspicion of Strawberries, to be released by Spyglass Lane Mysteries in the spring 2007. My book is set in the fictitious town of Greenburg, Tennessee. Andromeda Clark has a homemade soap shop, her latest in a long string of homespun craft businesses. When one of her customers dies from an allergic reaction to Andi's facial scrub, Andi sets out to prove the death was no accident. It was murder.
Spyglass Lane is a new book club of Barbour Publishing starting late this year, or early in 2007. I'm excited to be in on the ground floor of this new venture. If you like Agatha Christie, the Cat Who books, or shows like Diagnosis, Murder or Murder, She Wrote, I bet you'll enjoy these stories.
Strawberries has a southern tang with a commitment-phobic heroine whose truck driver boyfriend is getting a hankering to settle down, once and for all, while Andi has her business crisis and tries to hunt down a murderer.
And if all goes well, you'll get to see more of Andi Clark and her life in Greenburg.
