A great review & a contest!

I'm pleased as punch to discover a review of Remains of the Dead over at Here are the highlights:

The Remains of the Dead is a clever, fast-paced mystery with a paranormal twist. Ms. Roberts delivers tight, crisp dialogue, an exciting plot, and true to life characters. I especially liked the bickering between Sadie and Maeva, and the potential of romance between Sadie and Zack. This story was so enjoyable that I didn’t want it to end. Fortunately, the next book in the series is due out in December 2008, and it’s one I will eagerly await. If you like CSI, Medium or Ghost Whisperer, you’ll absolutely love The Remains of the Dead.

I've been blessed with a number of great reviews so to celebrate I'm having a contest. To be entered to win, simply mention The Remains of the Dead on your blog or site and link the title back here to me (or to the Amazon page selling Remains) then come back here and tell me in the comments that you've done it. I'll be making the draw Jan. 31st and the winner will walk away with a couple signed copies of Remains plus a mystery gift :)
