Details on how to win an ebook copy of Winter Whodunnits at the end of this post, along with a link to purchase it from Amazon.

Hi! My name is Summer Prescott, and I am thrilled to give you a sneak preview of a very special project. Winter Whodunnits: A Dozen Cozy Mysteries for a Chilly Winter’s Night, is a collection of twelve Cozy Mystery books by some of the most influential writers in the genre. I’m humbled to be included in this outstanding group of talented authors, all of whom have achieved top ranks on Amazon, and many of whom are USA Today Best Selling authors.

Shannon VanBergen, Stacey Alabaster, Anna Celeste Burke, JA Whiting, Dianne Harman, CeeCee James, Kathi Daley, Alison Golden, Amy Vansant, B.R. Snow, Nell Goddin, and of course, Summer Prescott, have come together to offer this creative collection of books that are sure to keep you entertained during these long winter days.book

Some of the books are being kept under wraps until our release, but I can tell you a bit about my contribution to this incredible boxed set.

Against the backdrop of the Idaho mountains that I remember from my childhood, a young woman returns to her hometown to help her sister run the family restaurant, after the tragic death of their parents. Avery, the main character, faces the usual challenges of returning home: running into an old flame and having deep wounds reopened, but also finds herself dealing with a murder in the midst of it all. With a fierce will to protect herself, her sister, and their family legacy, Avery gets swept up in the investigation, and begins to wonder if she’ll be able to figure out who the murderer is before tragedy strikes the fragile remnant of her family. Her path brings her face-to-face with a decades-old secret, which could change the course of her life forever.

All of the books in the set will be a special treat, and the collection is a must-have for every Cozy reader. The set is available for preorder now, and will release officially on January 2. The preorder price is just 99 cents for the whole dozen—get them while they’re hot!
