Can you believe we have been doing this for four glorious years?  Looking back at all the incredible books we've read and authors we've met is such a joy, but looking forward is the real treat. 2017 will start off strong with Mystery Thriller author Andrew Grant.  Grant, though English, has written his second book about a cop in Birmingham. Birmingham Alabama, not Birmingham England, the city of his birth.  This book, called False Friend, is a follow up to False Positive, and you have the opportunity to win a copy of that first book right here.  When you sign up to attend our party, which will happen on Tuesday, January 10 at 6pm, you will automatically be  entered to win.  Ballantine Publishers will send you a copy, straight to your home so you can meet Detective Devereaux before you meet his creator Andrew Grant.  Please join us, and help us celebrate.
