Happy release day to Ellery Adams’s A Deadly Cliché

Today is a big day. Other than getting us out of the cavity and bankruptcy-causing month of February, it is the release of Ellery Adams’s A DEADLY CLICHÉ, which is a better reason to celebrate.

While walking her poodle, Olivia Limoges discovers a dead body buried in the sand. Could it be connected to the bizarre burglaries plaguing Oyster Bay, North Carolina? At every crime scene, the thieves set up odd tableaus: a stick of butter with a knife through it, dolls with silver spoons in their mouths, a deck of cards with a missing queen. Olivia realizes each setup represents a cliché. And who better to decode the cliché clues than her Bayside Book Writers group?

Readers met Olivia and the Bayside Book Writers in Ellery’s popular first novel in the series, A KILLER PLOT. I met Ellery, a pen name for Richmond author Jennifer Stanley, at the Book People 30th birthday celebration and heard her speak at the 2010 James River Writers Conference. She knows how to build a strong mystery. A DEADLY CLICHÉ and A KILLER PLOT are perfect for fans of cozy mysteries.

If you buy a copy or request one from your local library before March 7, don’t forget to head over to Ellery’s website for your chance to win a new 3G Kindle.

Congratulations to Ellery Adams, and happy reading to mystery aficionados.
