upcoming release and tour: missing mark

Julie Kramer, author of Stalking Susan and Missing Mark (books featuring my "real job" of TV!), is coming to the northwest for her book tour! There are other cities as well, but since I'm in the northwest those are the ones I'm interested in. I have my review copy of Missing Mark already. I'm going to start reading it once I've finished another book for a blog tour that's coming very soon.

Here's the Publishers Weekly review:
"A for-sale ad for a never worn wedding dress sparks Minneapolis TV reporter Riley Spartz to chase an intriguing story in Kramer's slick sequel to 2008's Stalking Susan. Wealthy Madeleine Post's comedian fiancĂ©, Mark Lefevre, didn't show up for their lavish White Bear Lake wedding and hasn't been seen since. Is Mark, who looks like Groucho Marx, a runaway groom or a crime victim? A few days after Riley interviews Mark's mother, Jean, the mother apparently shoots herself in the head, though the suicide note found at the scene is, oddly, in Mark's handwriting. Riley's discovery of Madeleine's rare disease—prosopagnosia (the inability to recognize faces), which also afflicts Madeleine's mother—adds a neat twist. Meanwhile, Riley is also under pressure to pursue a big story about the theft of Big Mouth Billy Bass, the Minnesota record largemouth bass, from a mall aquarium. Kramer makes the most of a clever, if far-fetched, idea in this fun mystery thriller."
