When Jamie Lang finds one of her hand lettered quotes on the window of her shop, Flourish, with a hole shot through a serif, she knows someone’s trying to drive her business into red ink. Jamie confronts Earleen Culp, the ruthless owner of the local stationery shop, in front of the most popular breakfast spot in the small town of Cedar Valley. Of course, Earleen professes shock and innocence, so when she’s found dead in front of Jamie’s home the next morning, Jamie becomes the prime suspect.
Jamie’s one cross-stroke short of acquittal, and even her best friend has her doubts. But Jamie’s not the only one in town with a motive for wanting Earleen silenced for good. To clear her name, Jamie’s going to need every last drop of ink in her quill.
With the hot police chief Ridge, and her makeup artist friend Nora on her side, she’s prepared to go out with a flourish if that’s what it takes to catch the real murderer. She’s desperate to save her hand lettering business, but will her quest lead her right into a killer’s snare?
Character Guest Post
A Little Bit About Me—Jamie Lang
I was born and raised right here in Cedar Valley, Washington, a small recreational town outside Seattle.
I run a hand lettering shop, Flourish, located in the center of things on the town square, conveniently sandwiched between the famous Cedar Valley Bakery (and café. Do get one of their delicious scrambles.), and Perk Me Up, our amazing coffee shop run by my friend Angel Russo. A block away Lighthouse Gardens hosts weddings year-round in addition to selling plants.
I’ve always loved to draw and hand letter. When I was young I was the girl doodling in class and making hearts on her i’s. At Flourish, I host monthly wine and hand lettering events where my friends and I catch up on the latest town gossip and letter an uplifting quote.
I’m the main character and amateur sleuth in the Hand Lettering Mystery series of cozy mysteries by Jessa Archer. I have a preference for inspirational and uplifting quotes. In fact my house in Cedar Valley is a veritable gallery of my favorites. Naturally, this is where I feel most “at home” and do my best hand lettering and thinking. This is where I have my light bulb moments when it comes to solving crimes.
I got into sleuthing accidentally. You can read all about it in Cursive, Foiled Again, a free mini mystery by Jessa Archer. I solve my first real murder in Who Shot the Serif?
And I love coffee and drink lots and lots of it. I do live near Seattle, after all.
