Kate Collier - Sipped - Release Blitz

Mystery (Cozy/Traditional)

Date Published:  June 2018

After a rough semester, Professor Lyssa Pennington just wants to post her grades and join her husband, Kyle, in Cornwall for Christmas. First, though, she’s expected to host an elegant dinner for Emile Duval, the soon-to-be Chair of Languages at Tompkins College.


Too bad no one told Lyssa murder is on the menu. And, by the way, Emile Duval is an imposter.


Who is he really? And who wanted him dead? Without those answers, the Penningtons can kiss Christmas in Cornwall goodbye.




Trooper Moran tapped his pen. “Let’s talk about the person you saw leaving the kitchen, the one who delivered the wine. Do you remember her coat?”

“I was fixated on her gloves.”

“Cloth coat? Down?”

“It was the kind of dark winter parka anyone would wear on a cold night, but that doesn’t tally with the classy gloves.”

“Did you see the woman’s footwear?”

“No, just the gloved hand.”

He chuckled. “Tell me about the glove.”

Lyssa’s cheeks were hot. “I was memorizing every detail to tell Kyle, because I really really wanted a pair just like them for Christmas.”

He shook his head.

“So I’m not a trained detective,” she joked. “I noticed some other detail, but I can’t grab hold of it right now.”

“Her head popping back for a look?”

Lyssa shook her head. “This woman didn’t second-guess anything. She’d worked out every detail.”

C. T. Collier was born to solve logic puzzles, wear tweed, and drink Earl Grey tea. Her professional experience in cutthroat high tech and backstabbing higher education gave her endless opportunity to study intrigue. Add to that her longtime love of mysteries, and it’s no wonder she writes academic mysteries (The Penningtons Investigate) that draw inspiration from traditional whodunits.
