Molly Weston - Crime Readers Caught Reading Crime...

...in an indie bookstore.

Today I welcome a mystery reader who is an invaluable part of the community...she's a media escort. In other words, she makes sure our authors get to their appearances. She's often setting up those appearances, too. Molly Weston is the blogger at Meritorious Mysteries and she reads in the area of 200 mysteries a year. - I'm so jealous!

I'm tickled pink to have Molly join in the indie bookstore love today:


Quail Ridge Books and Music has been in Raleigh for more than 20 years. I've had a close relationship with the owner, Nancy Olson, for many of those years and have enjoyed traveling to mystery conferences with her. The store is large, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the chairs comfy.

I was lucky to get an early copy of Sarah Shaber's Louise's War just out from Severn House. This World War II mystery features young widow Louise Pearlie, just arrived in Washington and working as a clerk for the OSS. When she recognizes the name of a college friend while filing documents, Louise is drawn into a deadly situation.

Sarah is an incredible writer and I hope this will be the first of many in this World War II series. I know she's already hard at work on the next. Why can't our favorite authors write as fast as we can read?

That's a great question! However, I do need the time to read everything that comes out, so...

Thank you Molly, for taking time to show some love to Quail Ridge Books and Music as well as Sarah Shaber. So thrilled to have you join in the fun.

Happy Reading everyone!

Very nice and happy to meet Molly. How fun to get to escort writers around.

I'm very interested in the book she's reading. I think I thought it wouldn't be out until later in the summer. Sounds like a great one. Love books set in WWII times.
