Come join me (Elizabeth Mitchell) at Broadway Books for the launch of my new literary suspense novel, SWEETHEARTS!

Nineteen years after finding Laura Hurst in a frozen lake, Ada Bailey agrees with her therapist: it’s time to revisit Lynn Pond and confront the past. But Silynn holds more than memories.

Decades-old secrets tumble out as Ada explores the town she was sent away from, though her return dredges up more than sordid pieces of the townsfolk’s lives. Sam Pruette, a collector of innocents, worries Ada may remember details from that frigid day in November of 1988.

Laura was only the first sweetheart.

On Wednesday, October 2nd at 8 pm, I will be reading from SWEETHEARTS. There will be cookies, drinks, and cute take-home conversation heart pins for the first 30 people to stop by! Also, stick around for the Q&As; I’ll be giving away book related swag for the most interesting questions (an idea lovingly stolen from Debby Dodds, author of Amish Guys Don’t Call). Following that, I’ll be available for signings and photo-ops. Because who doesn’t love a good photo-op?

Do feel free to invite anyone who may enjoy a good reading with snacks and wine, please and thank you! 😉
