Kate,

Like I said, I was floored when she just offered to do that. And I loved that interview that was in Mystery Scene.

I've gone to a couple of her book signings and had a great time listening to her talk about her books/writing.

I'm really hoping that people show up to the group in a couple of days, I think they'd really enjoy hearing Ingrid talk.

The library supposedly did a press release up for the local papers and the woman who moderates the meetings sent out an email to everyone that has attended past meetings.

I finished reading an advance copy of the Christmas themed novella collection "Christmas Cocoa Murder". It has three stories in it. They are written by Carlene O'Connor, Maddie Day and Alex Erickson.

I really enjoyed it and put a review of the book up on another book related site.

Full disclosure, I received the advance copy from author Maddie Day.

Currently reading I'LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS by William Deverell, a doyen of Canadian crime fiction. Not a new book for a review or anything, but just one I'd been looking forward to getting off my shelf. Fascinating thusfar as it takes his longstanding legal eagle hero Arthur Beauchamp reminiscing back to a case early in his career where an indigenous man was at risk of the noose. Deverell is a very fine writer.

I finished the Cornelia Kidd novel "Death and a Pot of Chowder". Sadly, what was intended to be the first book in the Maine Murder series is the only book we'll see. The author, real name Lea Wait, passed away a few weeks ago.

I really enjoyed the book and would have loved to see where the story would've gone next.

I got my hands on the new Lorna Barrett Booktown mystery "A Killer Edition" and powered my way through it rather quickly. Pretty enjoyable read and continues my love of the series.
