Weekend Update: November 23-24, 2019

Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will be posts by Dorothy Cannell (Monday), Susan Vaughan (Tuesday), Maureen Milliken (Thursday) and Charlene D’Avanzo (Friday). On Wednesday. the day after it’s published, we’ll be posting an excerpt from Lea Wait’s Thread and Buried.

In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:

Lea Wait’s Thread and Buried has been garnering good reviews from Advance Reading Copies (ARCs) sent out by her publisher. There’s one here at Maine Crime Writers and the prestigious review journal Booklist praises its “Maine setting and satisfying plot twists.” To read Thread and Buried for yourself, here’s a buy link to all the usual online booksellers. You can also ask your local independent bookstore and/or your local library to order a copy.

Also, for those of you who read ebooks with Kobo: from November 29-December 1, most of Lea’s previous Mainely Needlepoint Mysteries will be on sale at $1.99 each. This includes Thread on Arrival, Dangling by a Thread, Thread and Gone, Thread Herrings, Thread the Halls, Threads of Evidence, and Tightening the Threads.

 This holiday season, if you’re looking for something special to do in Maine, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens winter feature, Gardens Aglow, is a magical event. Here’s the link, and some photos from last year. https://www.mainegardens.org/calendar-events/gardens-aglow/
