Mystery Book Chat

This month’s book chat features June cozy mysteries from Berkley Prime Crime and Obsidian. The Poisoned Pen Bookstore will host two of these featured authors, Laura Bradford and Kate Carlisle, along with Paige Shelton, Saturday, June 11 at 2 PM. And, Laura and Kate will both be “In the Hot Seat” next week. Watch for those interviews.

Readers who follow my personal blog have seen my cat, Jinx, often enough in the book chats to recognize him. For those of you who have never seen one, meet Jinx.
