Piece Of Work Book by Staci Hart


Piece of Work, an all-new sexy and hilarious romance from Staci Hart, is available NOW!


Marble isn’t the only thing that’s hard at this museum.

His body is as chiseled as Adonis. His lips are as sculpted as David. And his ego is the size of the Guggenheim.

You know the type—wolfish smile and the gravity of a black hole. The kind of man who sucks all the air from the room the second he enters it. My cocky boss thinks this internship was wasted on me, and he doesn’t hesitate to let me know.

But he’s wrong, and I’m going to prove it to him. If I can stay away from his devil lips, that is. Lips that cut me down and kiss me in the same breath, leaving me certain he’s on a mission to ruin my life.

And maybe my heart.


I rated this book 4 ****’s 

It’s like a cat and mouse game  
If  you love arts, you will enjoy reading this book. It’s like a cat and game mouse between the two characters. I loved it. What a fun book to read with hotness overload. It is also emotional. Rin is such an inspirational character. She is my favorite. She is not a quitter and aim for that dreams to come true. Paris is beyond beautiful. It is intense and at the same time very sweet. I enjoyed reading this book so much.

He smirked and flipped up his sunglasses.


“You’re early,” I clipped.

“I would have had my assistant text you, but she’s currently bedridden.”

You could have texted me.”

“I didn’t have your number,” he said simply.


His eyes shifted to look behind me, and I turned to find my friends standing me in a row with my suitcase in front of them, my messenger bag on top, and fake smiles on all their faces, lips together, their judgment about as quiet as a foghorn.

“These your roommates?”

“Yup,” was all I said as I turned and took my suitcase, hugging each of them down the line with promises to text when we landed. And then I turned to Court, rolling my suitcase in front of me like like a riot shield.

I tried to pick it up to carry it over the threshold, but it was heavy, and before I could get far, he’d swept it out of my hands like it was a loaf of bread and not fifty pounds of mascara and shoes.

I waved at my friends, who offered encouraging smiles and hand gestures, and I closed that door, immediately regretting every decision I’d made to bring me to the moment I turned around.

He stood at the door to the backseat, holding it open for me like a gentleman, which I knew he was not. But the look on his face of regret and deference, under the hard shell of his brooding, was almost too much to bear.

So I did the only thing I could.

I ignored him.

I ignored his gorgeous lips as they tilted and the sleek cut of his jaw as I walked past him. I ignored the sight of his long legs as he climbed in next to me and the smell of him that made me want to grab him by the lapels of his jacket and bury my nose in his chest.

The driver took off, and I busied myself in my bag, looking for my headphones and book.

His eyes were on me. I pretended like I didn’t notice.

“You’re not wearing lipstick,” he stated.

Headphones, headphones, headphones. “It’s an international flight, Court. Of course I’m not wearing red lipstick for a ten hour flight.”

A pause. “Rin, I—”

Aha! I popped in my earbuds the second they were in hand.

His lips flattened, his face unamused. Rin, his lips said, but I smiled and shrugged, pointing to my ears.

“Noise canceling,” I said way too loud.

His chest rose and fell with a sigh I couldn’t hear—I’d already turned on music, a playlist we’d built the night before geared toward resisting douchery and unwanted-slash-totally-wanted advances—and he reached into his own bag, a leather affair at his feet, his hand disappearing into the bag and reappearing with a book, which he handed to me.

He watched me with his expression shrouded as I paused, my eyes on the offered book. An image of Penitent Magdalene by Tintoretto filled the cover, and I met his eyes, pulling my earbuds out by the cord.

“I thought you could use this. For your proposal,” he said, giving nothing away. “I…A colleague of mine wrote it, so if you have any questions, I can connect you. If you want.”

I took it from his hand, surprised and disarmed. “Thank you,” was all I said. He opened his mouth as if to speak again, but closed it, and with a nod, he reached back into his bag for his own book. Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake.

I put my earbuds back in place, trying not to bite my lip, but it found its way between my teeth despite the effort at the sight of him sitting there, dressed like that, reading Margaret Atwood. After giving me a thoughtful gift, a book he knew I would want, one I would need for my dissertation.

Court Lyons made about as much sense to me as a scrambled up Rubik’s Cube.

I leaned against the door as I flipped through his gift, doing my best to sort through the rush of questions and confusion as Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s sang about being cheated by the opposite of love. And I found I knew exactly the feeling.

About the Author

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

El Pecador Book By M Robinson

Book two of a two book series. El Santo (Book one) available now.
So here you are… 

Turning the pages, opening the next chapters of my life—wanting to know the next truths of my sins. As if the first half of my life wasn’t enough. 

You. Need. More. 

You want my redemption. 

My heart. My soul. 


Your happily ever after…


You. Want. Answers.


And I will grant you the very first one you’re dying to know.


Why did I leave her?
So go ahead.

Turn the page. 

I dare you. 

You just might not like the answer. 

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.


couldn’t take it anymore and started pushing me to get free from my grasp.
“Stop! I hate you, Damien! Do you hear me? I fucking hate you!” she yelled over
and over again, aching to make herself and me believe it. 


My heart
My fingers
And tears
threatened to surface.
However, I
wouldn’t let up and just kept caressing her, kissing her, whispering that I
loved her. Battling her hateful words with my loving ones. I could feel she was
reaching her breaking point, as much as she could. Her wrist suddenly slipped
through my grip and she shoved me with so much force that she was able to slap
me across the face. Going full speed to do it again, but I intervened by
grabbing her forearm, pinning her to the blanket. Locking down her petite frame
with my flawed heart and beaten body.
She laid
there beneath me, panting profusely, emotionally and physically consumed with
tears cascading down the sides of her face. For a moment, I allowed her to take
my breath away. In my eyes, she’d never looked so fucking beautiful.
So goddamn
So fucking

I leaned
forward and kissed away all her tears, tasting her nightmares, her memories,
her love and hatred for me. Tenderly kissing my way to her lips while her body
continued to shudder from my intense, overpowering love. Overwhelming her
emotions and overriding her thoughts the way only I could ever do. Before
another second slipped by, I kissed her for all the years I didn’t, for all the
times I couldn’t, for all the moments I so desperately wanted to. Losing myself
in her. Almost like I was trying to kiss the agony and pain I caused right out
of her. Wanting to hold her tormented burdens, inflicted solely by my mistakes
and regrets.

El Pecador is the best book from the author Ms. M Robinson for me though I read most of her books. This book has everything you want to read as a reader.

A delicious and intense read

Ms. Chelle Bliss delivered another delicious but intense read again. She is one of my favorite author. Guilty Sin is a unique read from Ms. Bliss for me. It is different from her other books but has the same family bonding, funny and hotness overload. It has actions, suspense and forbidden. I loved the bonus scene the most. I am not a fan of threesome but Ms. Chelle delivered those lines beautifully. This story is beyond beautiful. It will open your hearts in a different way to let someone come into your lives. Love is the most kindest thing happened to these three characters. It is nice to read some of the characters from the old books.

Degrees of Love Book Spotlight by Lisa Slabach

Book Details:

Book Title: Degrees of Love: A Novel by Lisa Slabach
Category: Adult Fiction, 344 pages
Genre: Women’s Fiction
Publisher: Bookbaby
Release date: Dec 1, 2017
Tour dates: May 1 to 18, 2018
Content Rating: PG-13 + M (Adult themes including infidelity, occasional F-word, non-explicit sex scenes)

​Book Description:

At thirty-six, Susan Sinclair has it all. She’s just been promoted to Senior Vice President of Mobile Banking at her firm, a prestigious position bringing fresh creative challenges and a hefty salary increase. Like the shiny new BMW in the driveway of the Silicon Valley home she shares with her husband, Matt, and their two beautiful boys, Susan exudes confidence and style.

Yet despite her success in juggling the roles of wife, mother, and businesswoman, Susan struggles with a secret dissatisfaction. Matt’s work in cutting-edge computer research pays less than her job, and with each advance in her career, he has grown more distant. But Matt refuses to admit there is a problem, and Susan forces herself to play along, determined to give her boys the close-knit family life she never had.

Then she meets her new boss, Reese Kirkpatrick. Working and traveling together, she and Reese become a crackerjack team, but little by little, pleasure mixes with business. For the first time in a long time—maybe ever—Susan feels seen and appreciated for who she is. Certain she would never allow their friendship to cross the line, Susan lets herself stray dangerously close to the edge.

​A moment of weakness changes everything. Now, unable to stomach the façade her marriage has become yet unwilling to decimate her family by moving forward with Reese, Susan faces a choice that could cost her everything—including her children . . . but possibly bring her more than she can dream.

Praise for Degrees of Love:

​”Slabach crafts a relatable, heartbreakingly real story that will no doubt resonate with those at a similar station in life: women who love their families yet yearn for just a little more—to feel wanted rather than needed, to feel passion rather than complacency. In engaging prose and through skillful storytelling, Slabach captivates with an all-too-familiar story that raises questions with no easy answers.”
– Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

“This does not read like a debut author’s book. Slabach shows herself to be adept at portraying the complex emotions of the human condition. Her characters live and breathe on the page in a way that every author strives for, but few actually manage. Susan’s struggles ring true, and the way she handles everything makes her a very likable and relatable character.”
– Sarah Perry, San Francisco Book Review, 5 Stars

“Profound, heart wrenching and very emotional, it is hard to believe that Degrees of Love is a debut novel by Lisa Slabach. This is one of the best novels I have read this year.”
– Rabia Tanveer, Readers’ Favorite

Book Title: Sass, Smarts, and Stilettos: How Italian Women Make the Ordinary Extraordinary by Gabriella Contestabile
Category: Adult Non-Fiction, 201 pages
Genre: Travel / Arts / Fashion / Self-help
Publisher: Sumisura Publications
Release date: November 2017
Tour dates: April 23 to May 11, 2018
Content Rating: G (No violence. No swear words. No sex scenes.)

Book Description:

Ah, that inimitable Italian style. It’s embedded in an Italian woman’s DNA. Fashion doesn’t define her. She defines herself. She knows an extraordinary life is not about status, money, or achievement. The only mastery it requires is one her heritage has given her, the irrepressible passion to make art of life itself.

Ask an Italian woman where she gets her sense of style and she will tell you it’s not about labels. It’s tethered to humble roots; humanity, community, conscious consumerism, and a profound appreciation for art in all its forms.

Sass, Smarts and Stilettos takes the reader on a journey from the humble hill towns of Abruzzo to the revered fashion capitals of Milan and Rome, into the artisan workshops of Florence, and the humanistic business practices of Luisa Spagnoli, Brunello Cuccinelli, and Alberta Ferretti, from the emergence of Italy’s fashion industry after WWII, to slow food and sustainable fashion initiatives taking root around the world.

Life lessons echo in the words of the author’s mother and grandmother, in the voices of Italian film divas, designers, tastemakers, writers, and artisans across generations, from the first Sala Bianca in Florence to the game-changing design ethic of Franca Sozzani, Miuccia Prada, and Donatella Versace.

Learn how to live fully within your own philosophy of living. Say goodbye to mindless consumerism, emotional clutter, and others’ expectations. Create a personal style that fits like a custom blazer by Ferrè and enchants like the colors of a Sicilian sunset. Then go on to craft an extraordinary and empowering life made-to-measure for you alone.

I rated this book 4 ****’s

What a very inspiring and beautiful book to read  
I enjoyed reading this book. It is not only beautiful but very inspiring to book. It gives you more insights about a strong woman who not only loves passion but also enjoyed life to the fullest in different countries and still enjoy being herself. 

There are some words are hard to read but the glossary on the back helps me to comprehend. I love how Italian has big family and family oriented. I can relate that to my Filipino heritage. This book is very heartwarming to read with so much love and passion. It teaches you the love for food with big mouth and a sassy attitude, that is my favorite part of this book.  
I cannot wait to read more books from this author.

About the Author:


Gabriella Contestabile is the author of the novel, The Artisan’s Star, and owner of Su Misura (Made to Measure) Journeys; a boutique travel concept for the female traveler who relishes off-the-beaten-track adventures that celebrate the Italian way of life.

The book/travel initiative has its roots in her pre-writer life as a foreign language teacher, later as Executive Director and Vice President of International Training in a number of global companies (including Estee Lauder, Shiseido, and Prada Beauty) where she would create immersive and unconventional learning experiences in unique settings around the world.

One of her favorite pastimes, wherever she is in the world, is to scout out the best, and most ‘Italian’ espresso in the hood. It requires multiple tastings, but that’s the idea. Gabriella was born in Italy, and raised in Ottawa and New York City, where she currently lives with her husband, her mother, and a furry Shih Tzu named Oreo.

  1. Do you recall the first book/novel you ever read?

‘Little Women’ by Louisa May Alcott.  I was eight years old and I still own the book.  I read it both in English, four times, and in Italian, twice.  As an Italian immigrant living in Canada it made me yearn for New England, a piano, and a house full of sisters. Jo March became my role model and it pretty much sealed the deal.  I would be a writer and a feminist, and that was that.

  1. Are you an avid reader?  If so, are there certain authors you would like to emulate?

Yes and yes.  I wish I could write biography like Walter Isaacson and fiction like Marguerite Duras and Isabel Allende. I wish I’d written ‘To The Wedding’ by John Berger, the short stories of Alice Munro, the poetry of Louise Gluck, the works of Dickens and Dostoyevsky, and penned a powerful treatise on life and death ‘When Breath Becomes Air’. But then I also wish I could sing like Maria Callas.

  1. Any advice you’d like to give your younger self?

Read Barbara Ueland’s “If You Want To Write”.  If I’d done so before embarking on my first novel I wouldn’t have taken ten years to get it perfect, which it isn’t, and I would have written more books. Ueland’s advice is essentially ‘don’t get it right, get it written’.  

Most important, know your reader and the literary experience you want to create. Work with a good editor, send out to reviewers and readers for feedback, make the final tweaks and changes, give it to a proofreader and when all is in place send your book out into the world and move on to your next one. Ueland’s advice is solid and as straightforward as it gets.

  1. What did you want to become when you were a kid?

A myriad of things but they all had one in common-they all involved writing, travel and creating experiences; actress, foreign correspondent, UN ambassador.  I loved theater and would stage plays in our back yards complete with scripts and costumes.

When I was ten my father gave me the book “A Passionate Sightseer’ by Bernard Berenson. It sparked my wanderlust and an interest in all things Tuscan. Years later while researching “The Artisan’s Star’, I was re- directed to Berenson’s book.  I consider it karma that Berenson’s distant cousin, the elegant model and actress, Marisa Berenson in and her famous grandmother, Elsa Schiaparelli, appear so prominently in the pages of ‘Sass, Smarts, and Stilettos.’

There’s this full circle thing that keeps surfacing in my work. While I research in the present I always end up in a place I’d explored at another point in my life, which proves, yet again, that the book we want to write has always resided inside us in some form.

  1.  Do you have a guilty pleasure?

I never feel guilty about enjoying all the small pleasures life has to offer. I love Bollywood movies and dance, all the color and drama. I love Wonder Woman.  I love books and movies that make me cry. Same thing goes for opera. Put me in a place where my emotions can run free, where I can laugh and cry with abandon and I’m the happiest person around.

Embracing Her Heart Book by Melissa Foster

Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]


Welcome to Oak Falls, Virginia, home to horse farms, midnight rodeos, bookstores, coffee shops, and quaint restaurants where you’re greeted like family and treated like treasured guests. Buckle up for a wild ride. Like any Southern girls worth their salt, the sweet-talking, sharp-tongued Montgomery sisters can take men to their knees with one seductive glance or a single sugarcoated sentence.

Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters’ drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again—ruggedly handsome Reed Cross.

Reed was one of Michigan’s leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape.

Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed’s spell again—and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he’s never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas…

The Bradens & Montgomerys are part of Melissa’s Love in Bloom big-family romance collection featuring alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to readers who enjoy contemporary romance and women’s fiction.. All Love in Bloom novels are written to stand alone and may also be enjoyed as part of the larger series, so pe right into this fun, sexy romance.

PLEASE NOTE: Future books in the original Montgomery series are crossing over to the Bradens at Pleasant Hill, and for this reason Melissa has combined the series into THE BRADENS & MONTGOMERYS (Pleasant Hill – Oak Falls).

I rated this book 5 *****’s

Second chance of love is even better  
First love will always had a big part in our hearts but with second chance happened, it is even better. This book will capture not only your heart but will make you laugh out loud, enjoy those times with your family and most of all fall in-love with Reed and Grace.  
Reed will make you swoon not only with his looks but with his sweet gestures. I hope this guy is for real. Any woman will want him. Both Reed and Grace have the passion not only for each other but their hearts are beautiful and loves to give back to the their community.  
This book is so sweet and at the same time it is hotness overload. I really enjoyed reading this book. I cannot wait to read more of Ms. Melissa Forster’s incoming books.

I rated this book 5 *****’s 

This book blew my mind away 
The best book I read from Ms. Lauren Carr this year. This book blew my mind away. I thought I figured out who the killer is but I was wrong. When your an investigator and retired, your mind never stop solving mystery murders especially the cold case and the Geezer Squad. These guys are beyond amazing. My hats off to them. 
Being greedy always is badly and will always end in the deadly path. Second romance is sweeter than the first time. This book is so much of family love, hilarious and at the same time mesmerizing.  
This book is hard to put it down. I was glued right away. Ms. Lauren Carr, you nailed this book again. I cannot wait for your next book.

Lauren, tell us a little bit about your new release, Ice.

Ice is an enthralling cold case mystery that follows a former FBI agent who joins forces with a group of retired specialists. As they search out clues from crimes in the past, dark secrets are finally brought to light, thawing out cases that were once ice cold.

Twenty-five years ago, Sandy Lipton and her unborn child disappeared, and the court of public opinion found Chris Matheson, a college senior, guilty. Decades later, the retired FBI agent returned to his family home to discover that the cloud of suspicion cast over him and his family had never lifted.

With the help of the Geezer Squad, Chris Matheson starts chipping away at the ice on this cold case to uncover what had happened to Sandy and her baby and the clues are getting hot!

Tell us a little bit about your protagonist Chris Matheson.

The sudden death of his wife, killed during a terrorist attack in France, and the death of his father prompts Chris’s retirement as an investigator with the FBI. He moves back home to the family farm to live with his mother, who helps him to raise his three young daughters.

Notice that Chris is surrounded by women since he’s raising three little girls and lives with his mother, who is also dealing with the loss of her husband. But there is one male in his family for him to lean on. That’s Sterling, another retiree. He’s a law enforcement K-9, who recently lost his handler in an ambush.

What inspired you to have your male protagonist surrounded by women?

My own life. At one point, I was surrounded by men. I lived with my husband, son, and father-in-law (who has since passed away) under one roof. It was very frustrating because none of them seemed to understand me. We would actually get into arguments over their inability to understand. They’d go to the barber and pay ten dollars. I would go to the hairdresser and pay over a hundred, and they decided there was something wrong with me. Once, in the midst of this very frustrating period, someone pointed out to me, “Even your dogs are male.” That’s right. We had three big dogs and they were all male, too!

I actually went looking for a fluffy female purse dog because I was desperate for someone to understand me.

Chris Matheson is not so desperate. He handles the whole situation with humor. At one point, his six-year-old daughter sends him a text photo of Sterling, his German shepherd, who she has fitted with a tiara for a tea party. Chris jumps in his truck and rushes home to save him. From that point on, Chris takes Sterling everywhere with him.

While the women in his life may not understand him, Chris understands them. It is his depth of understanding women that aids him in solving a murder in ICE.

Your protagonist lives with his mother? Does she play a role in Chris’s investigation?

I love Doris Matheson. It was while going through the edits for ICE that I realized there is a lot of my late mother, who recently passed away, in Chris’s mother. Maybe that’s why I created her. She had married Chris’s father, a state police captain when she was only eighteen years old and has only recently been widowed. Yet, she is an emotionally strong woman, who has the ability to take charge of any situation. In one scene in ICE, Chris’s former boss, who is eight months pregnant, seems to go into early labor in their kitchen. While Chris and the local police lieutenant stand there in shock, Doris rushes in and takes over with such authority that the woman thinks she’s a doctor. Correcting her, Helen says she’s a librarian. But that’s okay because she reads a lot.

Like most mothers and sons, Chris and Doris share a loving relationship, but he’s not a momma’s boy by any means. Though, she does have the power to nag, which is how Chris ends up joining the Geezer Squad.

Tell us about the Geezer Squad.

The number one rule of the Geezer Squad is never talk about the Geezer Squad.

The Geezer Squad is a private team of detectives who work under the cover of a book club, which meets at the library where Doris is the director. Chris’s father formed the group after he got kicked out of his wife’s book club. After a couple of meetings to discuss actual books, they decided to combine their skills and talents to reopen the cold cases that keep them up at night.

Most of the squad members have families who would disapprove of them returning to doing investigative work, which is the reason for their secrecy.   

You release three, sometimes four, books a year. Does writing energize or exhaust you?

Both. When I get really rolling with a storyline and the words are coming easily, I can’t stop. There have been times when I have been left alone that I’ll start getting stomach pangs and realize I hadn’t eaten all day long. But the words and flowing and I can’t stop. I’m energized and completely focused. That’s when my husband will drag me away from the laptop and out to dinner to get food into me.

Then, when I’ve finished a book—I’m exhausted. After I had finished writing ICE and sent in the manuscript, I slept twelve hours a day for three days. My husband thought I was sick. No, I wasn’t sick. I was exhausted.

Do you have a favorite character or one that is especially close to your heart?

Gnarly! I have a special place in my heart for Candidate for Murder, because that is Gnarly’s story. I dedicated it to the real Gnarly, who passed away from canine cancer only a few months after that book’s release.

Now, I have a special spot for Sterling, the German shepherd in Chris Matheson’s series. The real Sterling is Gnarly’s nephew, who landed in an animal shelter on the same day Gnarly passed away. We adopted him eleven days later. Sterling is goofier than Gnarly and his best friend is Thor, another pet in the Matheson household. That’s all I’ll say. You need to read Ice to meet Thor and Sterling.

What is the best gift you have ever received; do you still have it and who gave it to you?

I have to say Sterling. After we found out that Gnarly’s nephew, a pup from his sister’s litter, had been turned into an animal shelter on the same day that Gnarly passed away, my son Tristan insisted on getting him out as my Christmas present. Sterling and I bonded instantly. He truly helped to mend my broken heart over Gnarly. He was the best Christmas present ever!

What is next for you?

I am working on two books that I expect to be released early summer and another this fall.  

Look for the third Thorny Rose Mystery early this summer. Murder by Perfection.

Frustrated with their busy schedules, Murphy Thornton and Jessica Faraday attempt to find togetherness taking a couple’s gourmet cooking course at the Stepford Kitchen Studio, taught by Chef Natalie Stepford.

As if spending her date night cooking isn’t bad enough, Jessica is further annoyed when the beautiful, talented, successful businesswoman starts paying too much one-on-one time with Murphy. When Natalie ends up dead, the Thorny Rose detectives find togetherness doing what they do best. As they peel back the layers of the Stepford marriage, they discover that the pursuit of perfection can be deadly.  

But wait! There’s more! Look for a Mac Faraday Mystery this fall! The next installment in the Mac Faraday Mysteries will be coming out just in time for Christmas – A Murder for Christmas (working title).
