Author Visit: Vicki Delaney
March 15, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
You may know Vicki Delaney from her Year Round Christmas Mystery Series. Or, perhaps you’re familiar with her Lighthouse Library Mysteries written under the pen name Eva Gates. Well, now, we’re happy to celebrate yet another cozy mystery series from Vicki – The Sherlock Holmes Bookshop series! The first book in the series, Elementary, She Read, will be released March 14th from Crooked Lane Books.
We’re excited to welcome Vicki back to the shop on March 15th at 7:00PM to discuss her new mystery series, and we hope you can join us!
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Transplanted Englishwoman Gemma Doyle owns the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop and Emporium in the quaint town of West London on Cape Cod, specializing in the Holmes canon and pastiche, and the adjoining Mrs. Hudson’s Tea Room. When Gemma finds a rare and potentially valuable magazine containing the first Sherlock Homes story hidden in the bookshop, she and her friend Jayne Wilson set off to find the owner. What they find is a dead woman and Gemma’s house ransacked.
The highly perceptive Gemma is the police’s first suspect, so she puts her consummate powers of deduction to work to clear her name, investigating a handsome rare books expert, the dead woman’s suspiciously unmoved son, and a whole family of greedy characters desperate to cash in on their inheritance. But when Gemma and Jayne accidentally place themselves at a second murder scene, it’s a race to uncover the truth before the detectives lock them up for good.
Fans of Sherlock Holmes will delight in the sleuthing duo of Gemma and Jayne in Elementary, She Read.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Vicki Delany began her writing career as a Sunday writer: a single mother of three high-spirited daughters with a full-time job as a computer programmer. The years passed, as they tend to do, and the three daughters, somewhat hesitantly, flew the coop, leaving Vicki more time to devote to her writing. She was able to write three novels of suspense, set in Ontario, two of which, Scare the Light Away and Burden of Memory were published to critical acclaim by Poisoned Pen Press of Scottsdale, Arizona.
In 2007, Vicki took early retirement from her job as a systems analyst. At that time In the Shadow of the Glacier, the first book in a police procedural series set in the British Columbia Interior was published. After traveling around North America for a year with her dog, Shenzi, she bought a home in bucolic, rural Prince Edward County, Ontario, where she rarely wears a watch and can write whenever she feels like it.
