Author 
Maria Grazia Swan  
is so excited about her new book, she's having a
GIVEAWAY! 

Maria is giving away one copy of her book  
BEST IN SHOW
Book 6 in the Mina's Adventures series


Mina Calvi, Italian transplant to Southern California, thinks her love life might finally come together, just as her professional life has. Her Furry Friends Foundation, a no-kill shelter for rescued cats and dogs, is a success, and Mina hopes she may find a loving forever home for her-self, in the arms of Diego Moran, her elusive, frustratingly mysterious, on again-off again, lover. When a seemingly innocent night out with friends lands Mina in a hospital bed and Diego undercover, and not the covers Mina wants him to be under, Mina has to draw on all her new-found maturity, and all her supportive friends for strength. Meanwhile, a Best in Show cat takes up residence at the Ritzy Cats B&B, Mina’s other venture, setting Mina on the trail of a suspicious character who might not have the cat's best interests at heart. Add a Matchmaker to the Stars, a temperamental Italian chef and the usual menagerie of people and pets, stir it all up and you have an entertaining, hard to put down romantic tale of suspense.

MY REVIEW


Another intriguing installment to the Mia's Adventures series! 

Author Maria Grazia Swan has created an interesting protagonist in Mina Calvi, an Italian born, Orange County, CA transplant. The title of this series, Mina's Adventures is spot on, because Mina does find herself in dicey situations 

BEST IN SHOW is so well written. Filled with action and suspense, you never know what each new chapter is going to bring to the story. Just hang on for the ride! 

Note: This is not a standard cozy, but it is a good clean mystery that cozy fans can enjoy. 

While BEST IN SHOW is fine to read alone, I think readers would get a better feel for things by starting with book one, LOVE THEY SISTER. That being said, at the time of this posting, BEST IN SHOW is only .99 for a Kindle book! So, rather you start with this book, or start at the beginning of the series, now is the time to pick up a copy of BEST IN SHOW. Head over to Amazon and grab your copy! 


Giveaway is open to both US and CANADA
US winner - choice of print or Kindle copy
Canadian winner - Kindle copy only

As a bonus giveaway, Maria will send one lucky US
winner, this adorable Hello Kitty Pendent.
