It’s Win an ARC Wednesday

Would you like to win an Advance Reading Copy of the fourth Deadly Edits Mystery? All you have to do is leave a comment here to be entered in a drawing to be held May 15. Murder, She Edited (publication date: July 27) takes retired teacher turned book doctor Mikki Lincoln on a new adventure, this one centered around her inheritance of a long-abandoned farm not far from her home in Lenape Hollow. There’s a catch to claiming the land. Mikki has to find and edit diaries left behind by a former owner. Just to complicate matters, Mikki has acquired a stalker—a reader who (wrongly) blames mistakes in her favorite author’s latest novel on Mikki’s editing. As usual, Mikki’s calico cat, Calpurnia, is front and center as the story unfolds.

Kathy Lynn Emerson/Kaitlyn Dunnett has had sixty-three books traditionally published and has self published several children’s books and three works of nonfiction. She won the Agatha Award and was an Anthony and Macavity finalist for best mystery nonfiction of 2008 for How to Write Killer Historical Mysteries and was an Agatha Award finalist in 2015 in the best mystery short story category. She was the Malice Domestic Guest of Honor in 2014. Her next publication (as Kaitlyn) is the fourth book in the contemporary “Deadly Edits” series (Murder, She Edited), in stores in August 2021. As Kathy, her most recent novel is a standalone historical mystery, The Finder of Lost Things. She maintains websites at and A third, at A Who’s Who of Tudor Women, is the gateway to over 2300 mini-biographies of sixteenth-century Englishwomen, now available in e-book format.

    This book sounds like it will be a really fun read! Thanks for offering us a chance at an ARC!

  2. Jane Bettany says:

    This sounds like the perfect read for me, as I adore both mystery books and calico cats. Years ago, we had a calico cat called Donna. She was small and petite, but excellent at catching things. We would often find dead mice on the doorstep, but there was never any mystery about who the killer was! It was always Donna, leaving us another ‘present’. 🙂

      I have a photo somewhere of the real Calpurnia proudly carrying a dead mouse across the living room.

  31. I can’t wait for the next Deadly Edits book, Kaitlyn. My late mother was a linguist and would have loved your books. It was she who taught me the love of the English language; little did I realize I would eventually teach classical English myself. So much fun!
