It's always lovely to meet authors that you enjoy reading but it's also quite lovely to have worked with a person who is now an author. Jessie Chandler is a former bookseller colleague of mine. We traveled in the same book selling circles for many years and I even attended a training session that she taught back in the day.
Well, turns out she has been very busy and now is a mystery author!
I went to my Sunday morning bookstore gig last week and my manager asked if I remembered her. I said, "Sure do!" and was quickly led to her book on our local author table.
How cool is that?
Well, when I got home I emailed Jessie and congratulated her and caught up. When I told her I had a book review site, she offered to send me a copy to read and review at my leisure.
Well, I can't pass that up, especially if it's a mystery!
So here it is folks, Bingo Barge Murder -Book 1 in the Shay O'Hanlon mystery. series

Sounds like a lot of fun!
My review is to come since I just got it in the mail yesterday.
I am excited to stop by her book release party at Once Upon a Crime Mystery bookstore in Minneapolis on May 19.
It's so much fun to support local authors and it's even more fun to support the ones you know!
I hope you check her out.
Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!
