Dorte Jakobsen has written a mystery, The Cosy Knave. Smashwords describes the book:
"The vicious attacks begin when the prodigal son of Knavesborough returns to the sleepy village after forty years in Argentina with fame and fortune. No wonder what spiteful Rose Walnut-Whip is killed, but when the violence escalates, Constable Penrose knows he needs help from his fiancee, librarian Rhapsody Gershwin."
Dorte has put up a post at http://djskrimiblog.wordpress.com/2011/07/29/wait/ that sets out how you can purchase the book.
She has come up with a clever means of promoting her book. She is conducting a round the world blogger relay of questions and answers. Yesterday Kerrie Smith at her blog Mysteries in
Paradise posted the answer to question 5 and question 6. You can follow the relay back to Kerrie at http://paradise-mysteries.blogspot.com/2011/08/do-you-like-your-cozies.html. Having made her post Kerrie has passed the baton from to me in Australia Western Canada.
Question 6 was:
What kind of plot can we expect in "The Cosy Knave"?
Dorte’s answer is:
I promise I´ll do my best not to spoil the mystery for anyone, but in the very first scene the Knavesborough gossips have just heard that the prodigal son is on his way back. The major´s son left the village forty years ago after a successful career as a musician so of course he settles for nothing less than the local manor, and soon all sorts of dramatic events shatter the peace. The prize scandalmonger of the local knitting club is killed - had she stumbled on a secret that could be dangerous for someone else? So even though the story is light and entertaining, there is also a proper murder mystery with clues strewn over the pages, and I trust that even for the seasoned reader of puzzles there will be a few surprises.
Question 7 is:
How do you come up with your characters; are any of them based on real people?
I now pass the baton across the
Atlantic to where Dorte will be posting the answer to Question 7 on August 8 on her blog, djskrimiblog. I encourage readers to make the journey to Dorte’s blog. It is amazing how the baton is racing around and around and around the world. Denmark
