Interview with Betsy Brannon Green and Giveaway for Murder By the Book at Linda Weaver Clarke's Blog

Mysteries have always been one of my favorites genres. When I was a kid I read Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys--still have some of those books in my closet--and watched shows like Scooby Doo.

Linda Weaver Clarke is running a giveaway this week for readers in the United States and Canada for a book in my favorite genre, so I couldn't help but share it with you.

Murder by the Book by bestselling author Betsy Brannon Green sounds fascinating.

From Small-town librarian Kennedy Killingsworth thought that Midway, Georgia, was the dullest place on earth until a fateful day that begins with a speeding ticket and ends with a suicide. The ticket comes from Kennedy's ex-husband, Deputy Cade Burrell, who seems desperate to find any reason to talk to Kennedy ever since his scandalous affair. And the suicide victim is Foster Scoggins, the leathery-faced resident who applied for a library card just hours before his gruesome death. Rumors fly that Foster took his life after being jilted by a mysterious love interest. But as the investigation unfolds, murder becomes the name of the game, and anyone might be a player including the four men who recently started competing for Kennedy's attention. Could the killer be Cade, who s been more interested in her since the divorce than he ever was when they were married? Drake Langston, the dazzling billionaire who needed Foster's cooperation to land a major development deal? Drake's construction boss, Sloan, whose powerful build makes him a perfect suspect for the crime? Or could it be Luke Scoggins Foster's hazel-eyed nephew, the charming ex-Marine whom Kennedy just might be falling for?"

As Green explains in her interview, this is the first book of a series spun off from her first novel, Hearts in Hiding, which introduced readers to the Haggerty Mystery series.
