Saturday, December 6
1:00 pm to 4:00 pm: Book Signing
Please help Nancy Kille launch her first book, "The Death Contingency".

Meet Regan McHenry, a Santa Cruz, California Realtor, whose work puts her in the midst of mystery, mayhem and even murder.  The amateur crime solver uses tools and techniques she's learned during her career and skills she's honed as a keen observer of human nature to solve mysteries - just not always soon enough to stay out of trouble.

The murder mystery is set in Santa Cruz and Bonny Doon.  You'll recognize local sites.  The Bonny Doon Volunteer Fire & Rescue Team even makes an appearance.

Please join Nancy and husband Craig, a.k.a. chief editor, for a book signing at 301 Azalea Lane. (Turn off Empire Grade 1.25 miles below Felton Empire at Pineridge)

Get your books personalized - they'll make fun holiday gifts for friends and family.  Large print available, too. Details at www.GoodReadMysteries.com or 427-1320.
