Bargain this Week & Great New Mystery Series

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000032_00028]Whenever I’ve had a chance these past few days, I’ve been reading the first book in a great new mystery series by Jennifer L. Hart. Murder Al Dente had an official release date yesterday in all bookseller venues, but Amazon jumped the gun and released the Kindle version last Saturday afternoon and I snatched one up right away–at the release week bargain price of 99 cents! While I may be on deadline for the next Bodies of Art Book, and for the Sept 8th release of Organized for Homicide, I still suffer from a reading addiction that makes me an absolute b*tch if I don’t get my fix. My family puts up with me for awhile, but I don’t like to push their patience, so I try to at least read a little each day (it’s truly the least I can do to save family harmony–I am the glue that holds my loved ones together after all–LOL!). However, this book is making it more and more difficult to stop reading when I just meant to “take a quick reading break” during deadline week. The book isn’t just funny, the author is clever in word choice and dynamite at creating believable and likeable characters. And while I’m not finished yet, I have to say the mystery is first rate. Oh, and if that isn’t enough, there are terrific pasta recipes between each chapter. Heaven!

The book topped the Amazon Cozy Culinary charts before midnight last night. So, if you haven’t dished up a serving of Murder Al Dente for yourself, do so soon. The special 99 cent price only lasts until the end of this first week of release, then goes back to the regular $3.99 pricing.
