To celebrate, I'm going to be doing a series of giveaways. The second is for Square in the Face (Claire Montrose Series).
What you can win
A signed paperback of Square in the Face. But it doesn't end there! I will also send you the recipe for the cinnamon rolls that JB makes. This is actually a secret old family recipe that has been blind taste-tested against an award-winning cinnamon roll recipe - and it came out on top!
About the book
When a former coworker and friend urgently needs her help, Claire Montrose agrees to do a little sleuthing. Years ago, Lori gave up her child to a secretive adoption agency. Now Lori's young son is ill, and the doctors say his only hope is a bone marrow transplant from a sibling. Lori talks Claire into finding her long-lost daughter. The closer Claire gets to the truth, the more twisted and perilous the search becomes. Using her wits, charm, and savvy sleuthing skills, she digs up old secrets--but someone is willing to kill to keep them buried.
