Catching up on the Devereaux's Dime Store Mysteries
Plus a Giveaway for a signed copy of LITTLE SHOP OF HOMICIDE the book that started seires!

If you haven't heard by now, March 4th is "First Tuesday". New release day for some of my favorite cozy authors and I'm sure some of yours as well. 

One of the titles to be released is the long awaited for third installment in the Devereaux's Dime Store Mysteries, DEAD BETWEEN THE LINES by author Denise Swanson. 

In the first book in the series LITTLE SHOP OF HOMICIDE we meet Devereaux 'Dev' Sincliar, new owner of the old-fashioned dime store in her small town of Shadow Bend, Missouri. 

After working hard to move forward with her life after a scandal had her the talk of the town, she suddenly found herself as the person of interest in the murder of her ex's fiancĂ©e! 

In NICKELED-DIMED TO DEATH, the second book in the series, Dev found herself in the mix of another murder. 

She was thrilled to buy antique chocolate molds to use in her Easter baskets. Had she known the molds may have been stolen and the woman who sold them to her, Elise Whitmore would be found murdered, Dev never would have touched them. And to make matters worse, Dev's friend Boone was accused of the murder!

So, what does the third book in the series, DEAD BETWEEN THE LINES hold for Dev. Check out this blub...

Opening an old-fashioned five-and-dime shop in her small Missouri hometown has been a great change for Devereaux “Dev” Sinclair. But when she hosts a reading group there, she learns that bad writing can mean life or death.
To keep her new business in the black, Dev opens up her shop to local clubs. But in the first meeting of the Stepping Out Book Club, the speaker storms out after members attack his poetry’s sexism and scorn for small towns. Later that night, the poet’s body is found outside Dev’s store.
Dev can’t afford for the murder to close her down, so she does a little stepping out of her own to investigate, with help from her two sexy suitors, Dr. Noah Underwood and Deputy U.S. Marshal Jake Del Vecchio. But when the killer threatens Dev, they will have to use every trick in the book to solve the case before she becomes the final chapter in this murder mystery.…

Wow, poor Dev! 

Even more excited for DEAD BETWEEN THE LINES now aren't you?! 

Denise Swanson wants to celebrate the release by offering a Giveaway of a signed copy of LITTLE SHOP OF HOMICIDE, the first in the series!
