Barbara Graham releases new book

This just in from Barbara Graham about her new book,
Murder by Serpents:

East Tennessee Sheriff Tony Abernathy finds himself searching for a murderer. Who killed a snake-handling preacher--using his own snakes as the weapon? Aided in his search by his wife, Theo, a quilt shop owner and mother of two boys, Tony must dig through conflicting information. Tony may think of Theo's shop as "gossip central" but he pays attention to what she learns. When more bodies turn up, they are both embroiled in the hunt for the truth.
The "clues" for Theo's mystery quilt are included as a little something extra for other quilting addicts.

Murder By Serpents: The Mystery Quilt release date is Wednesday, November 14 by Five Star Books, an imprint of Gale, ISBN13: 978-1-59414-590-2.

Kirkus Review calls it--“A soothing cozy debut that includes a pattern for a mystery quilt”. Set in East Tennessee, the novel concerns the murder of a snake-handling preacher. His own snakes are used as the murder weapon.
