Waiting on Wednesday #107: Practical Sins for Cold Climates by Shelley Costa


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.


Practical Sins for Cold Climates by Shelley Costa is the first in a new series featuring Val Cameron, a senior editor with a New York publishing company. It's due out January 27, 2016 from Henery Press.

Synopsis from Goodreads.com:

When Val Cameron, a Senior Editor with a New York publishing company, is sent to the Canadian Northwoods to sign a reclusive bestselling author to a contract, she soon discovers she is definitely out of her element. Val is convinced she can persuade the author of that blockbuster, The Nebula Covenant, to sign with her, but first she has to find him. 

Aided by a float plane pilot whose wife was murdered two years ago in a case gone cold, Val’s hunt for the recluse takes on new meaning: can she clear him of suspicion in that murder before she links her own professional fortunes to the publication of his new book? 

When she finds herself thrown into a wilderness lake community where livelihoods collide, Val wonders whether the prospect of running into a bear might be the least of her problems.


Why am I waiting on this one? Shelley Costa won an Agatha Award for her first novel, You Cannoli Die Once. So, I expect good quality writing. And Henery Press is publishing the book. In my past experience, Henery Press has good taste when it comes to choosing authors to publish. I like books that have to do with publishing and writing and this one will most likely have a little of that. And, the mystery itself takes place in a small town which sounds good.
