Sleuthing In Stilettos Has A Cover


Happy June! Can you believe we're six months into 2022? It feels like I blinked and the year was half over. Honestly, I hope the same happens for the next three months because I really dislike the hot, humid weather. I'm much more a fall kinda gal. :) But, the month I'm really looking forward to this year is December! That's when SLEUTHING IN STILETTOS releases!!! And I got the cover for the book the other day. I absolutely love it. It fits the story so well.

Writing this story was so much fun for me for so many reasons but I can't go into those reasons because they'll be spoilers. Let's just say, Kelly Quinn finds herself up to her false lashes in hot water and big trouble. So, you see why I loved writing the story so much. Here's a little bit about SLEUTHING IN STILETTOS.


Kelly Quinn, owner of a high-end consignment shop, is a booster for her Long Island town’s small businesses—but now a store owner’s murder has brought big trouble . . .

Locals in Lucky Cove seem to harbor hostility toward Miranda Farrell, proprietor of a new shoe store. Nevertheless, Kelly invites her along to a Chamber of Commerce meeting. But soon afterward, Miranda’s body is found in her shop, with Kelly’s uncle—who’s had multiple public arguments with her—standing nearby. Could her uncle really have committed murder over a business dispute? Or is Miranda’s death related to her late husband’s long-ago embezzlement case?
Kelly feels compelled to investigate, despite her detective boyfriend’s objections—not to mention her commitment to promoting Small Business Saturday. But her effort to pump up sales may fall flat. After her presentation to the committee is sabotaged, the Chamber gives her the boot—and tongues start wagging. Now she has to do some fancy footwork to find the killer . . .

The book releases on 12/6/22 and is available for pre-order at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

When I received this cover from my publicist, it truly made my day. I've had crushing back-to-back deadlines, so having this bright spot pop into my day was amazing. BTW, I did meet both those deadlines. Yay! And I've managed to do some reading. Over on my personal blog, I shared what I've read so far this year and three books I'd like to read next. My current read is The Art of the Decoy by Trish Esden. Set in New England and centered around antiques. I love it! 

What are you reading? I'd love to know. Because, you know, the TBR pile can never be too big.

  1. Enjoyed your blog, Debra. Congratulations on the new book - I love the cover, too! I usually read 3 to 5 books at a time and I switch back and forth until I complete them. Right now I'm reading Don Quixote (in Spanish), The Books of Jacob (the English translation came out recently) My Brilliant Friend. I'll have to add your new release to my books to read.

  2. Fun cover, Debra. Best of luck with it!

  3. Wonderful cover.... will need to add this to my pre-ordered TBR pile immediately. I've been juggling a series of books this week from biography (Mel Brooks) to thriller (My Name is Knight by Yasmin Angoe - excellent) to skimming my own Four Cuts Too Many in preparation for the upcoming Read-A-Long Book Discussion of it on June 21.

  4. The cover is fabulous. Congratulations!

  5. This book sounds adorable, and the cover belongs front and center on The Stiletto Gang's website!!
