Double Giveaway/Another Hour to Kill and Another Stab at Life by Anita Higman


It has been a busy time for me with the birth of my debut novel "Death in Dahlonega." I'm proud to say it made the top 10 best seller list for women sleuths category on I hope my followers will read it at some time. Now for our double giveaway. Anita Higman, another cozy writer, has brought back two of her books in ebook form and she is trying to get the word out. We are lucky to have two signed copies of her paperback books, they are "Another Stab at Life" and Another Hour to Kill." I read both of these and thoroughly enjoyed them.

Baily has survived the mysteries of Volstead Manor, but her latest threats are more ominous than ever. Did her neighbor B.J. die of natural causes? Or was he murdered? And why does the new neighbor, Vlad Tepes, seem to always be watching her?
While searching for a lost treasure and planning a wedding the size of an amusement park, Bailey must discover what monster is still lurking in the neighborhood. Will she unravel the puzzle in time, or will Bailey merely provide the villain with "Another Hour to Kill?"

She has nowhere to go except the dilapidated mansion she's just inherited from her granny Minna. Unfortunately, Bailey discovers that the house has a history as shadowy as its hidden passages and finds the neighborhood overflowing with some rather quirky folks - as well as one particularly appealing bachelor. Bailey feels like she's trapped inside the pages of a gothic novel but with a comedic twist. In order to honor her grandmother's wishes and stay at Volstead Manor. Bailey must unravel a string of mysteries and secrets, which all seem determined to stay happily ever buried.

About Anita: Anita Higman is an award-winning author of nineteen books. She enjoys hiking with her family, visiting show caves, and cooking brunch for her friends. Please drop by her book cafe for a cyber visit at
