The return of Emily Blossom and sidekick Pete Picken

Proudly displaying her most recent work of fiction, Blanche Renard Putzel released her third novel Fiddle For The Dead, an Emily Blossom Mystery at a book launch held on Sunday November 12, at Arbor Gallery.

Fans of the self-proclaimed detective, Emily Blossom, filled the room to capacity to hear Putzel reacquaint them with her vibrant characters Emily, Pete Picken, and Daisy.  Although a work of fiction, Putzel chuckled and pointed out that readers may recognize some characters based on local people of Vankleek Hill. Asked if there will be a fourth novel in the future, Putzel replied, “most likely but I’m not sure in what form it will take.”

Fiddle For The Dead is available in soft copy at amazon.com, Iuniverse.com, The Review and also in e-book format including The Trouble with Friday, her second novel.
