This week, I’m happy to bring you to France! Julia McDermott has set her book, Make That Deux, in Montpellier, which is not that far from Toulouse, where I live 🙂 Another French pin on the map! Continue reading Pin a Book: Make That Deux by Julia McDermott
A Pro Likes My Cover!
The cover of The Red Brick Cellars: A Tolosa Mystery was submitted to the cover design contest at thebookdesigner.com. The wonderful design made by Kitten at Deranged Doctor Designs was awarded a gold star by Joel Friedlander with the following comment:
A beautifully textured cover that combines strong typography with just enough environment (at the bottom) to make a complete and satisfying whole. ★
The gold star means that though the cover didn’t win, it was considered for the award or stood out in some exemplary way. You can check out all the submitted covers and Joel’s comments here.
If you want to check out the print book (and yes, it looks awesome in print :)), I have a Goodreads giveaway that starts today. Sign up now if you want a chance to win a copy!
This week we’re going back to India (check it out on the map!), more specifically to Mumbai. Vaseem Khan takes us there with his story, The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra (A Baby Ganesh Agency Investigation). The way he talks about the setting sure makes me want to read it!

This week Canadian Angela Misri takes us to 1930’s London! She apparently likes maps as much as I do – she has a Google map showing the locations and travels from her books. You can check it out here. You can also check out the updated Pin a Book map here. Continue reading Pin a Book: The Portia Adams Adventures by Angela Misri
This week, I get another pin in the UK: Renita D’Silva. Like me, she seems to have several cultural influences and this shows up in her stories. For today’s post: A Mother’s Secret, which is set in India. The Pin a Book map is getting populated quite nicely! Continue reading Pin a Book: A Mother’s Secret by Renita D’Silva
This week, I’m happy to present Estelle Ryan, the author of the Geneviève Lenard Series. They take place in Strasbourg – so I get a new pin in France on my Pin a Book map. Even more exciting: she’s from South Africa – a whole new continent for the map 🙂 Continue reading Pin a Book: The Genevieve Lenard Series by Estelle Ryan
A new and exciting pin on the Pin a Book map this week: Tina Clough, the author of Running Towards Danger takes us to New Zealand! And she’s (originally) a fellow Scandinavian. Should be an interesting mix, don’t you think?
A murdered mayor. A second body reduced to skeleton and dust. Their public display so horrific that the police are baffled.
Everyone assumes uninterested heir Louis Saint-Blancat will finally settle down and focus on the politics of Toulouse, France. Louis becomes the center of attention in the press as his mother and sister pressure him to follow the family’s political tradition, while all he wants is to track down his father’s killer and return to his globe-trotting lifestyle.
Determined to ferret out the story behind the perplexing assassination that took place at the very center of Toulouse, struggling English journalist Catherine Marty finds an unlikely ally in Louis.
Will the two sleuths discover what is lurking beneath the apparent congeniality of la Ville Rose?
