Swash_ornamentUntitled-4Dear Reader

Every family has skeletons, but the one in Georgia Thackery’s attic is special. It’s Sid. He walks, he talks, and with Georgia’s help, he solves murders.

It’s Halloween, Sid’s favorite holiday, when he can rub bony elbows with people outside the house? Georgia treats him to a visit to a haunted house, but they get rattled when a genuine body is discovered and find themselves with a skull-scratcher of a case.

Swash_ornamentParchment and Old LaceDear Reader,

I’m thrilled to bring you Parchment and Old Lace, the 13th book in my New York Times bestselling Scrapbooking Mysteries. This is a book you can identify with – from my entrepreneurial main character, Carmela, to the crafty, quaint environs of her New Orleans scrapbook shop. With pacing that moves like a thriller, a ripped-from-the headlines story, and a carefully drawn sense of place, many readers tell me that reading a Scrapbooking Mystery is like tiptoeing through the French Quarter. And they’re just as enthusiastic about the scrapbook tips and recipes. Please give this mystery your careful consideration – I think you’ll love it!

Rising Storm is a place where anything can happen and probably will. So come visit Storm and join us for scandal, revenge and a drama as big as Texas.
