I’m excited to bring a great author to you today. I just finished Nipped in the Bud and can’t wait until the next one comes out February 23rd. But I’m going to let her tell you all about the new series.


Spyglass Lane Mysteries

Susan Sleeman here. Do you have an e-reader or maybe an iPad? Then I’d like to tell you about a line of cozy mysteries that has recently released with most books retailing for only .99 for a limited time.

Currently, there are over 20 wonderful mysteries in this line.

I’d also like to share a little bit about my Garden Gate Mystery Series that is releasing as part of this line. The first book, Nipped in the Bud has already released and book two, Read Between the Tines will release in February 23rd. Here’s a little bit about both books.



Life in full bloom, landscape designer, Paige Turner, scores her first landscaping contract to spruce up the park, her radio talk show shoots to number one, and her retail shop is simply blossoming. Yes, her life is a bed of roses. Until she finds the city manager served up on the blade of her favorite shovel mere hours after she’s threatened to have his head on a platter, then the thorns come out. And there is none thornier than the local police chief declaring Paige the one and only suspect and threatening to plow her under.


Paige teams up with dashing attorney, Adam Hayes to weed through the list of suspects, and clear her soiled reputation. And along the way, discovers that Adam just may be the man of her dreams.

    I fell in love with Paige Turner when Susan and I were critque partners. Then I was sitting beside her the day she received the contract for the book. I’ll never forget the look on her face! I’m glad to see the story is now in the ebook world and more readers are coming to know what a wonderful author my friend Susan is.

    And thanks to my friend Pat for having her as a guest today.

    What absolutely darling plays on words–makes me wish I had a candle. Also makes me wish I knew where she lived in WI (’cause it probably colors some story backgrounds)–love the flower fragrances from 9 total states, too. This is a name I’ll watch for. Thanks, Pat
