Curried Away by Gail Oust

Curried Away by Gail Oust

FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS
-Gail Oust

Or, maybe for whom the clock ticks, would be more appropriate when discussing the dreaded “D” word. Every writer dreams of having a book contract, but with every contract comes a deadline. I tend to believe that the “dead” part of deadline is significant. Deadlines are sneaky devils. They lull you into a false sense of complacency when they’re six, nine, or twelve months away. You think you have all the time in the world to whip your story into submission. While in this state of bliss, you take occasional days off to have a little fun, entertain out of town guests, or just goof off. You might agree to speaking engagements, attend a writers conference or two, or even volunteer to moderate a panel. No worry, you tell yourself, you have plenty of time. You have everything under control.

Bam! Then it hits you. A closer look at the calendar reveals the deadline you thought tame …

Telling Tails by Sofie Ryan – Book Tour + Giveaway

Telling Tails by Sofie Ryan – Book Tour + Giveaway

Telling Tails by Sofie Ryan is book 4 in the Second Chance Cat Mystery series. This fun series features a great cast of characters. From second-hand shop owner Sarah, to a ‘gang’ of seniors in their prime and investigating crime, to a cat named Elvis, the eclectic mix of characters had me laughing out loud.

The author manages to tell a cohesive story with a well-plotted mystery, one that you will devour in a single setting. The compelling mystery, the great setting, and the fun characters are what keeps me coming back to this series. I’m planning on going back to read earlier books in the series that I missed. If you enjoy cozy mysteries with cats, some ‘older’ sleuths, and a story you won’t want to put down, I highly recommend this series. You won’t be disappointed.

Three print copies of Telling Tails by Sofie Ryan are up for grabs in this tour-wide giveaway. For your chance to win, enter on the Rafflecopter below. Good luck!
