Mailbox Monday: Pretty in Ink

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. I'm a little late for this week's post.

Last week I said that Pretty in Ink by Karen E. Olson, author of the new A Tattoo Shop Mystery series, is on its way to me. It arrived later in the same week so the book is now in my hands--just in time for my holiday in Perhentian island! I'm leaving for the island tomorrow morning and will be back on Friday late night. The package also came with a beautiful postcard featuring the book cover with a personalized message from Karen. Thank you, Karen, for the book!

The very pretty cover

I can't wait to share the review of Karen's new book but in the meantime, here's a synopsis of the book from its back cover:
Brett Kavanaugh is a tattoo artist and owner of one of Vegas's hottest tattoo shops, The Painted Lady. And in her spare time, she does some sleuthing - because nothing needles her more than murder.

After Brett and company ink Sin City's newest drag queen stars, they're invited to opening night at the Strip's glamorous Nylons and Tattoos show. An evening of glitter and dancing ends in disaster when a stranger with a queen of hearts tattoo fells Britney Brassieres with a wayward champagne cork.

Even though Britney recovers, she mysteriously dies soon after, and then another drag queen is found poisoned. Someone's targeting Vegas's fabulous femmes. And sharp-as-a-needle Brett must crack the case before the show's over for good.

Read the first two chapters of Pretty in Ink


P/S: I will be visiting all of you again next week when I'm back blogging in full force. Have a good week ahead!
