Comment or answer the question at the end of the post to enter the drawing for a copy. Deadline: Oct 1st, 11:59 pm central time. Here’s Leeann:
- What’s the most romantic thing your hero ever did for your heroine?
Mike bought her fluffy cat slippers at the Albuquerque Airport.
- Do your hero and heroine have as favorite romantic restaurant?
Mike’s idea of a romantic restaurant would be one where a violin player goes around between the tables. Carly thinks anywhere is romantic so long as Mike is with her.
- Do your hero and heroine have a favorite song?
Stand By Your Man sung by Tammy Wynette. Carly is kind of old-fashioned that way. She and Mike dance to it every time it plays on the radio.
- What’s the most romantic present your heroine ever bought your hero?
Because Carly understands Mike’s definition of romantic, she bought him a stud finder for Christmas, then followed him around the house, pressing the TEST button, so it kept going off, indicating a stud was near – him.
- What is your hero’s favorite romantic vacation destination?
Mike, being a computer programmer, likes to look at vacation the same way he looks at life: can it serve more than one purpose? For him, a great vacation would be a working vacation on a dude ranch, as in There Was a Crooked Man, or a college reunion, as in Five and Twenty Blackbirds.
- What is your heroine’s favorite romantic vacation destination?
Carly’s idea of a great vacation is not having to cook and being able to solve a mystery, so a cruise would fit the bill perfectly because of all the food, and with so many people confined in one area, there is bound to be someone ending up dead.

About the book – No Accounting for Murder: Carly Turnquist, forensic accountant, has a nose for mysteries.
