Today's the Big Day



Well, today is the day of my book launch event for Unfinished Business, the sequel to Mixed Messages. I will be selling and signing copies from 1-3 p.m. at Higher Ground Coffee House in Cheviot, Ohio. And, for those of you who haven’t yet purchased a copy of Mixed Messages, the first novel in my Malone Mystery Series, I’ll be sure to have several copies on hand.
Think Christmas! In a little over five weeks, the holiday will be here and, if you plan to buy gifts for any avid mystery readers, this will be the perfect opportunity to cross their names off your shopping list. If you aren’t able to attend the event, please note that Unfinished Business will be available at amazon.com in two days, on Tuesday, November 20th.
Unfinished Business takes place the week of Christmas. 
 
The Westwood Strangler is dead. Or so everyone believes.

Ann Kern is busy preparing for her favorite holiday. She’s especially looking forward to her sister’s annual Christmas visit. But, several things threaten to ruin her festive mood.

The National Weather Service issues a severe winter storm warning for the Cincinnati area, predicting blizzard conditions, and Ann worries that her sister and her new boyfriend won’t be able to make the drive from South Carolina.

Then, a woman is found strangled in Ann’s neighborhood and everyone, including the police, assumes it’s the work of a copycat killer. However, when two more women are murdered in their homes, the police announce their conviction that the Westwood Strangler is responsible.

When Ann hears the news, the sense of safety and security she’s worked so hard to recapture since her attack on Halloween night, shatters. If the intruder who died in her apartment wasn’t the Westwood Strangler, who is? And, who will be the next victim?

I hope to see you today! Happy Reading!

  1. I'll buying this one Patricia. In a world of slow moving writing going nowhere, you work is wonderfully paced and written.

  2. Good luck with the launch, Patricia. I can verify that Unfinished Business is a good read. I hope you sell out and have to take a lot of orders to deliver later. Congratulations.

  3. Sounds like another winner, Patricia. Best of luck with the launch. Another one to add to the way-too-huge TBR list.
