A simple game of chance results in Corinne Cooper’s best friend’s death and set her on a collision course with a detective still nursing hate from the past.

Three years of lonesome widowhood leads Corinne Cooper to a simple need. She wants a man. She cons her friend Edgy Brewster into helping her find just the right guy. They visit a honkytonk, the biggest church in town, and a bingo parlor looking for an eligible bachelor. Nothing goes as planned. Now Corinne is the prime suspect in a murder and must prove her innocence. Any of the four men she has met could have committed the heinous act. But which one?

LESLIE BUDEWITZ: So happy to share the news that my first historical short story, “All God’s Sparrows,” has been nominated for the 2018 Agatha Award for Best Short Story. Originally published in Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine (May-June 2018), it features real-life historical figure Mary Fields, aka Stagecoach Mary and Black Mary, who was born in slavery in Tennessee in 1832 and moved to Montana Territory to care for the ailing Mother Superior at St. Peter’s Mission near Cascade in 1885. In “All God’s Sparrows,” Mary and a young nun encounter a young mother and her daughter whose plight requires an inspired intervention. Read it via pdf on my website. The second Stagecoach Mary story, “Miss Starr’s Goodbye,” will appear in Alfred Hitchcock later this year. The Agatha Awards are given by the Malice Domestic mystery convention in early May.

Cookie CrumblesLESLIE BUDEWITZ: Delighted to be starting November in Dillon, attending the Murder Mystery dinner on Friday, November 2, and teaching at the Mystery Writers’ Workshop on Saturday, November 3, both sponsored by the Dillon Public Library and held on campus at University of Montana-Western. But you know I’ll sneak over to the library — one of the classic Carnegie buildings — for a poke around!

Later in the month, I’ll be joining the holiday fun at the Bigfork Art and Cultural Center during the annual Christmas Art Walk on Saturday, November 17, from 4-7 p.m. It’s the perfect setting for me, since AS THE CHRISTMAS COOKIE CRUMBLES is set in my version of Bigfork — I call it Jewel Bay, but you won’t be fooled! — and starts on Decorating Day and ends on Christmas Eve! Shop a while, grab a bite, and stay for the tree lighting as Montana’s Christmas Village lights up for the holidays.

And on Saturday, November 24, from 1-4, I’ll be chatting with shoppers and signing books at one of my favorite shops, Nancy O Interiors, on Hwy 35 north of the village. Soup will be on, and you’ll find all kinds of fun gifts for your home and the people on your Christmas list!

Remember, books fit in almost every Christmas stocking — and make great hostess gifts, too!
