Weekend Update: March 19-20, 2022

Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Charlene D’Avanzo (Monday), Matt Cost (Tuesday), Sandra Neily (Thursday) and Maureen Milliken (Friday).

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

from Kaitlyn Dunnett: The large print edition of the fourth Deadly Edits mystery has just come out. Don’t you love the cover?

This is the one in which Mikki Lincoln inherits an abandoned farmhouse with the provision that she find and edit diaries left behind by the former owner. Calpurnia, her faithful cat, plays a major role in solving the mystery.

Maureen Milliken will be the guest of the Maine 2020 Reading Connection series at 7 p.m. Monday, March 21, via Zoom.  Those who would like to attend should email Irene Drago at irenemdrago@gmail.com before noon Sunday, March 20, for the link.
The topic of the discussion will be the third book in Maureen’s mystery series, BAD NEWS TRAVELS FAST. When Appalachian Trail thru-hiker Lydia Manzo becomes lost in the woods of Franklin County, then is found dead, it sets off a chain of events that upsets the fragile peace of the town of Redimere. Maine’s northwestern High Peaks region can be a dark wilderness, but they suddenly seem very crowded as newspaper editor Bernadette “Bernie” O’Dea tries to discover what happend to Lydia and why Police Chief Pete Novotny has also disappeared.
Readers don’t have to have read the first two books, or even “BAD NEWS TRAVELS FAST to enjoy the discussion!
