Excerpt Tour: A Staged Murder by Jo. A. Hiestand

Congratulations to tour winner Brandi D. and to host winner Lorana Hoopes.

Thank you for your interest in hosting this tour, but all stops are filled.

Goddess Fish Promotions is organizing a Virtual Excerpt Tour for A Staged Murder by Jo. A. Hiestand, a British Mystery available March 27, 2017 from Page 92 Press. The tour will run March 27, 2017 to April 7, 2017, and this tour will not include interviews or guest blogs; however, a blurb, exclusive excerpt and author bio will be provided to every host for inclusion on their blog. Additionally, a PDF copy of this story is available for review in conjunction with a promo post.

Jo will be awarding a handmade lapis lazuli necklace on a bamboo cord to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour - International giveaway. The cord is adjustable and the necklace is comprised of three stones ranging in length from 1 5/8" to 2 1/8". (It's like the one Brenna Taylor in the book wears) A randomly drawn host will be awarded a necklace and a flying bird pendant. The bird is covered in sheet music. The color of the bird is cream and the music notes are black. Bird pendant is 1.69" by 1.38". The necklace chain and bird are made with nickel and lead free brass. An appropriate prize due to Brenna Taylor's love of music! This is an International giveaway.

Bonfire Night! The four hundred-year-old tradition of burning the straw effigy is beginning in Upper Kingsleigh, England. The torch extends… But it’s no mock figure at the end of the rope; it’s the body of a man, an American tourist. Brenna Taylor, Derbyshire C.I.D., is assigned to the case on a team of detectives under Detective-Chief Inspector Geoffrey Graham. It is the chance Brenna has been waiting for, and she is anxious to impress him.

Most villagers suspect an outsider as the killer. But when the frost-covered body of a resident is discovered, apprehension shifts and suspects multiply. Among them are the American's brother-in-law, still angry over his sister's death; the husband, who fears his wife will desert him for the American; the inebriated, penniless uncle, who clings to his nephew's fortune tighter than a cork in a wine bottle. Then Brenna becomes the target of a series of frightening pranks--the work of a harassing male colleague, or a deadly warning to leave the case? Her hunt is personal now.
