Discussion and signing

Sybil Johnson - Fatal Brushstroke

A dead body in her garden and a homicide detective on her doorstep…

Computer programmer and tole-painting enthusiast Aurora (Rory) Anderson doesn’t envision finding either when she steps outside to investigate the frenzied yipping coming from her own backyard. After all, she lives in Vista Beach, a quiet California beach community where violent crime is rare and murder even rarer. And when suspicion falls on Rory due to the body buried in her flowerbed being someone she knows—she embarks on a quest to identify the killer and clear her name before she encounters her own brush with death.

Diane Vallere - Suede To Rest: A Material Witness Mystery
Vallere's debut book in her new series from Berkley Prime Crime features Polly Monroe who returns to her home town to reopen the long-shuttered family business, Land of a Thousand Fabrics.  But she soon suspects that a murder behind the shop is tied to a mystery in her family's unsettled past and her determination to solve it has put her own life in jeopardy.

Friday, December 12th, 4:30 p.m. - E.J. Copperman

Previously known (aka Jeff Cohen) for his Double Feature Mysteries and his Aaron Tucker series, Copperman will be signing the sixth book in his Haunted Ghosthouse series, Inspector Spector.
