I love Indies!!

One of the joys of being a writer is to see your books on the bookshelves of a book store. It’s even better when it’s in one of your favourite bookstores. Here are 3 of my favourite independent bookstores where you can find the new Sgt. Windflower Mystery: Darkest Before the Dawn

Books on Beechwood

35 Beechwood Avenue

Ottawa, Ontario

bob

Books on Beechwood is an independent, locally owned, bookstore that reflects the interests of the surrounding neighbourhoods. The selections on literary fiction, biography, and history are particularly strong. They also have a good selection of mysteries, of children’s books and of cookbooks. The collection of several thousand books in the store is backed by the ability to order from a suppliers list of millions of volumes. They are very involved in the community and host special events such as book signings. They also have their own two book clubs which you are welcome to join.

First Review on Amazon.com Great Setting, Lovely Characters, Topical Plot

“To me, this series is truly cozy – the crimes are realistic, but not excessively detailed; there’s an interesting central character (a Cree Indian Mountie), a great location (Newfoundland, Canada), a small-town setting; snappy dialogue; richly-detailed and dimensional secondary characters; intriguing plots; a love of food; and a good dog. That hits all the points on my cozy list.”

First NetGalley Review  Like Taking a Leisurely Holiday

“It was just such a pleasure to read this book; pleasant, like taking a leisurely holiday away from my usual detective thrillers, intriguing, well-written and relaxing.  I finished this book with the sense that the mystery storyline was actually secondary to the story of Sgt. Windflower, his family, friends and colleagues, and the intertwining of their lives in a small Newfoundland community – punctuated by the odd murder or two.”

Coming in the November issue of Midwest Book Review 

“The story line is as rooted in home life and community plans as it is in murder and motive. Readers interested in a small-town setting and a whodunit that is satisfyingly complex and thought-provoking will find Darkest Before the Dawn excels at creating a realistic atmosphere that keeps the story fast-paced and involving.”

Darkest Before the Dawn is highly recommended for murder mystery readers who like their stories as filled with life as with death.”
