I like to think that the book blogger community is a close network of people who have a passion for reading, and within that community and like with most friends, there are different circles for different interests.
It's no secret that I love cozy mysteries, and I have found that the circle of fans and authors who love cozy mysteries are particularly close. When one of this close-knit group celebrates, everyone celebrates. And when one of this group of friends hurts, everyone bands together to try and help the best they can.
This past week, one of the finest cozy mystery authors, Kate Collins, lost her husband to a sudden heart attack. I can not imagine the devastation Kate must be feeling to lose the man she loved, and I send her my most heartfelt condolences.
On Tuesday, October 5th, Kate has a new book, DIRTY ROTTEN TENDRILS, the tenth book in her Flower Shop Mystery series, coming out.
Obviously with all that is taking place in her life right now, she is not going to be able to promote this book as she would have wanted had circumstances been different. Fellow cozy author Denise Swanson suggested that anyone who loved cozies, both writers and readers, band together to help put the word out about Kate's new book.
So I am helping out the best I can - I'm telling you, my readers and followers, about Kate Collins' lovely new book, and I'm asking, if you are in a book buying mood, if you would consider purchasing a copy or two of Kate's book.
Here is a little about the book:
But when Cody's lawyer, high-powered albiet scuz-ball lawyer Ken "the Lip" Lipinski, is found dead from a suspicious overdose, florist and amateur sleuth Abby Knight finds it hard to swallow that Dave Hammond, his opposing counsel and her old boss, is the murderer.
