It’s been a long time coming, but I can finally share with you the cover of the mass market paperback edition of MAID OF MURDER. This new edition will be published by Harlequin in July 2014, just a few weeks from now and is available to purchase through Harlequin’s website. Click here to see the pricing.
I can’t tell you how exciting this is for me. MAID OF MURDER will always be the book of my heart. It’s my first baby, the one that started my career, the one nominated for the Agatha, and the one that made my dreams come true. I’m so happy that it will now have a chance to reach more readers in paperback form. Huge thanks goes to my super star agent Nicole for making this happen.
Now the cover…
HERE LIES THE BRIDE . . .
An upscale Fourth-of-July wedding. A beyond-horrible bridesmaid’s dress. A snobbish mother-of-the-bride from hell…. If the struggling college librarian India Hayes didn’t owe ex-friend Olivia Blocken a big favor, she’d bail before the champagne is chilled. Especially since India’s brother, Mark, is still piecing his life together after Olivia’s callous rejection, and India’s family won’t forgive the not-so-beautiful bride. Now Olivia is dead in a campus fountain—and police find incriminating evidence in Mark’s possession. And even as India tries to keep her parents’ street-theater protests from sending the investigation into a tailspin, she must dig deep to uncover Olivia’s secrets. But trapping a murderer with a lot to lose won’t be a piece of eight-tiered, 24-karat-gold-frosted, crystal-decorated spun-sugar cake….
It’s so different than India’s first cover, but I do love it! I like to think India is a bridesmaid in the middle with the skull bouquet. 😉
