Mystery author Elaine Viets
is one tough cookie. Not only has this dyed-in-the-wool St. Louisan survived living in Florida, away from her beloved hometown, and working as a telemarketer for book research (ugh!), she also endured a stroke earlier this year. But that couldnt even keep her down! Despite her medical troubles, our Elaine is back on tour and back in town promoting Accessory to Murder
, the third book in the Josie Marcus series. Josie is a single mom living in Maplewood who makes ends meet as a mystery shopper. In this story, Josies friends husband has been accused of murder -- but who really dunnit? Is the answer in the mall? Youll be one step closer to the resolution of these questions when you attend a book-signing with Viets at 1 p.m. at the Ladue Barnes & Noble Booksellers (8871 Ladue Road; 314-862-6280). At the event Accessory
will be available for purchase at the quite-reasonable price of $6.99, and you can also let Elaine know youve kept her in your thoughts.
