Come to the bookshop on Sunday afternoon, April 19, from 3:00 - 4:00 PM to meet and listen to "cozy mystery" authors Maddie Day and Christin Brecher! Maddie Day will present the first book in her Cozy Capers Book Group Mystery series, Murder on Cape Cod. Christin Brecher will tell us about the latest book in her Nantucket Candle Maker series, Murder Makes Scents.
Maddie Day is a talented amateur chef and holds a Ph.D. in Linguistics from Indiana University. An Agatha-nominated author, she is a member of Sisters in Crime and Mystery Writers of America and also writes award-winning short crime fiction, which has appeared in a number of juried anthologies. She lives with her beau and three cats in Massachusetts, where she's currently working on her next Country Store mystery when she isn't cooking up something delectable in the kitchen.
Christin Brecher was born and raised in NYC, where her family and many childhood friends still reside. As such, she feels she is as much of a small-town girl as any. The idea to write the Nantucket Candle Maker series sprang from her life-long connection to the small island off the coast of Massachusetts. Spending summers there as a child, Christin read from her family’s library of mystery novels; after which she began to imagine stories inspired by the island’s whaling heyday, its notoriously foggy nights, and during long bike rides to the beach. After many years in marketing for the publishing industry, followed by years raising her children, Murder’s No Votive Confidence was Christin’s debut novel.
