September & October Reads

I've fallen behind in sharing book reviews, my apologies! September and early October are all about completing deadlines, getting ahead of the curb, and doing a lot of preparation before heading out to GRLwhich was hosted in Albuquerque this year. I'm only now catching up and still haven't written all of the reviews for books in these last two months, so I'll just share the remaining ones in November's reads.

Below are the BookBub links to my reviews, but they are also mirrored at Goodreads, if you prefer that site. Happy reading!

Love in 24 Frames

It's that time of year again! The annual holiday short story is within sight! This year's contribution to Dreamspinner Press's Homemade for the Holidays anthology is Love in 24 Frames.

Check out the blurb below, and add the short story to your Goodreads shelf. The individual title will be for sale at Dreamspinner Press and all third-party vendors on December 1, 2019. No pre-order is available for Love in 24 Frames.

Blurb: Declan Groves is a CPA in New York City. His adult life is dictated by routine and borderline monotony. The need to express himself, in ways his career and crippling shyness have never allowed, leads Declan to becoming an amateur stop-motion filmmaker.

The one problem is that Declan is also in love with the Wandering Artist Studios receptionist Shota Watanabe. Shota has always had a smile and engaging comment ready for Declan, but even if it is more than casual politeness, Declan hasn’t been able to get out more than a tongue-tied sentence at a time. And a man like Shota surely has no intention of waiting forever.

So when an unexpected change to Declan’s daily schedule throws the two together outside of the studio, it might be the catalyst needed to explore what’s unspoken between them. But if they’re to have a future, Declan needs to find a way to tell Shota how he truly feels.

Our conversation includes dishing about Bones, geography as a character, writing advice for new authors, and whether Sebastian Snow thinks C.S. Poe is trustworthy. (Spoiler: She is not! Ha, ha!)

The Mystery of the Bones LIVE

The fourth and final installment in the Snow & Winter seriesThe Mystery of the Bones, is live! Thank you to everyone who has read and supported me over the last four years as this series slowly chugged along. You all mean the world to me. I do hope you'll stick around for the next adventure I'll be releasing in early 2020!

Blurb: It’s been a full year since the mystery that brought antique shop owner and part-time amateur sleuth Sebastian Snow together with NYPD homicide detective Calvin Winter. Patience, sanity, and their very lives have been put to the test, but love has persevered. Although Sebastian is now New York City’s best-known busybody, he’s done solving crimes and wants nothing more than to plan a romantic budget wedding.

Then Snow’s Antique Emporium receives a decapitated human head in the mail and the holidays are gory once again. Sebastian patently disregards the mystery of a lifetime because he is done with death and danger—but the killer escalates. Before Sebastian knows it, his closest friends and family are dragged into a series of horrific murders with antiquated clues hinting to the infamous Victorian American Bones Wars.

The clock is ticking to recover a long-lost artifact linked to paleontologist Edward Drinker Cope and to capture a murderer. But it’s not Sebastian who may become the next target—it’s Calvin.

You can also add Bones to your Goodreads shelf or BookBub page.

And if you're new to the series, I have a fantastic sale still live that you can partake in.
