Rosie Amber, my blogging friend from across the ocean (rosieamber.wordpress.com), has invited me to take part in her Book Review Challenge. Rosie is the author of Talk of the Playground, a novel based on Rosie’s experiences as a playground parent in England and is available on Amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=talk+of+the+playground). Rosie posts book reviews, hosts author interviews, and provides writing resources on her blog. Be sure to visit her and see what she’s up to!
I have chosen to read and review Death in a Red Canvas Chair, by Noelle Granger. It’s the first of a mystery series, set in the coastal town of Pequod, Maine and is available on Amazon.com. (http://www.amazon.com/Death-Red-Canvas-Chair-Mysteries-ebook/dp/B00DMCL2VE)
Here’s some information about Noelle Granger, taken from her author page on Amazon:
Noelle A. Granger grew up in Plymouth, MA, in a rambling, 125-year-old house with a view of the sea. Summers were spent sailing and swimming and she was one of the first tour guides at Plymouth Plantation.
She graduated from Mount Holyoke College with a bachelor’s degree in Zoology and from Case Western Reserve University with a Ph.D. in Anatomy. Following a career of research in developmental biology and teaching human anatomy to medical students and residents, including 28 years at the medical school of the University of North Carolina, she decided to try her hand at writing fiction.
Death in a Red Canvas Chair is her first book and features an emergency room nurse as her protagonist.
Her second novel in the Rhe Brewster mystery series, Death in a White Dacron Sail, will be published in the summer of 2014.
Ms. Granger lives in Chapel Hill, NC, with her husband Gene, a physician, and is the mother of two children.
I received my copy from Noelle this week and I’m ready to go!
Thanks for visiting and come back soon to see my review of Death in a Canvas Chair!
