The Worthington Library is running a "Blind Date" promotion for Valentine's Day. They have a shelf in their entryway of books wrapped in brown paper bags, with hints of story within. If you're intrigued, you can check out the book (barcode is revealed on the back), take it home, and find out what you've gotten.
I picked the one labeled "Murder..." and decorated with bloody Valentine's hearts. (I know, big shock, right?) I got my blind book-date home and unwrapped it to find...
And yes, I love it.
Looks like the author managed to sell it as a series. Nicely done, Mary Lou Kirwin!
Anyway, I mostly just wanted to give a shout out to the Worthington LIbrary for a simple but ingenious promotion.
