Available November 8, 2022: A crooked antiques/rare books dealer from New York and his lazy, sex-and-money-obsessed hanger-on have been in the small town of Brookdale, PA for weeks, scouring vendors of vintage treasures for a certain copy of an 1890s novel. It's on a dusty shelf in the local bookstore, The Paper Pirate, but the owners have no idea how valuable it is or to what lengths the stranger will go to possess it. Pre-order now at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Walmart.com or your local bookseller.
My current work-in-progress is another cozy mystery, Buried in the Back Pages. In it, a book club witnesses the attempted murder of one of their members during a Zoom meeting. Later, they help shelter her from danger while she tries to convince the police that an unlikely suspect is determined to kill her.
Wish me luck!
Review: Prejudice is ugly but Dawn McIntyre tackles this subject with restraint and finesse. In this well written book Ms. McIntyre touches on subjects from distrust of outsiders who buy into a small town in order to develop a new lake community to racial prejudice. The characters, especially Sarah Greene, the main character, are very true to life. This is a thoughtful, well rounded treatment of two difficult subjects.
