AUTHOR OF THE MONTH
April 2018: Misty Simon
Misty Simon caught the writing bug in 1999, after a foray with supermarket romance, and she’s been caught ever since.
The author of mystery, romance, and even the supernatural, Misty is willing to run with an idea once it’s entered her mind.
Her first published book was Poison Ivy, the first in the Ivy Morris mystery series, about a curvy lingerie saleswoman who ends up with a small town murder to solve after a costume ball.
Since then she had published over fifteen individual titles, including her newest book Cremains of the Day which is set in Mechanicsburg.
If you would like to join us for dinner with Misty on April 22nd, please RSVP via email.
THE BOOKSTORE BULLETIN
Best Kept Secrets Tour
April 19th – May 5th
We are pleased to be a part of the very first Cumberland County Best Kept Secrets Tour this spring.
The Best Kept Secrets tour is a ticketed event that highlights unique businesses in the area and gives shoppers a chance to experience which each store offers while being given VIP treatment.
Each business participating in the program offers a coupon in the ticket for use during the tour. Other special offers are included in the ticket as well as in the bag (bag supplies are limited).
There is also a suggested route between all twenty-four businesses for those wishing to make it a day trip or even split the county in two trips over two days.
Before you ask, we cannot give out the names of the business (we don’t know either) but part of the fun is discovering new places!
Tickets are available for purchase at our store for $10.00 each and will be available through the last day of the tour.
Michelle’s Monthly Book Recommendations
Cremains of the Day by Misty Simon
This is the first book in a cozy mystery series set in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. For readers familiar with the West Shore, there’s an extra layer of fun because they can try to figure out how places relate to their real world counter parts. Tallie Graver lives above her family’s funeral home but she cleans the houses of her former friends to make ends meet. Her life path takes a twist when her ex-husband is assaulted and she finds one of her employers dead. With Misty Simon’s signature wit and fun characters, this mystery shows that an amateur detective can catch the killer and save the day.
