Release Day....MERCY, belatedly!

I'm over a week late in remarking on the release of my latest book, A BAD DAY FOR MERCY. But I have a pretty good excuse - last Tuesday, I was in Yosemite National Park for the annual family trip with all of these pals:

They're a motley lot, it's true, but we managed to have a splendid time under the towering trees and breathtaking cliffs and sparkling waterfalls and blue blue skies. No campfires allowed around the tent cabins, but as you can see, we made do with snacks and camaraderie.

But back to MERCY!  This is the fourth in the Stella Hardesty crime series, and you can read a little more about it here. Meanwhile, here's a few early reviews:

"Solid...Littlefield makes sure her feisty heroine has plenty to do."
   —Publishers Weekly

"Pitch-perfect prose and good balance between humor and dangerous goings-on...another winner." 4 stars
   —RT Book Reviews 

"It would take a hardened reader to resist Stella's charm, wisdom, and the humor...A Bad Day for Mercy will add to Stella's reputation for ingenuity and heart."
   —Lesa Holstine 

"Who wouldn't love Stella?...I am well and truly smitten!"
   —Susan Tunis 

"A Bad Day for Mercy speeds along at a nonstop pace...fresh and original."  —Jen Forbus, Shelf Awareness 

"A celebration of eccentricity, grit and love...Littlefield's series takes the mystery genre in new and welcome directions." —Richmond Times-Dispatch 

"A terrific addition to this incredibly original and entertaining series. For those who haven't yet discovered the wonder of Sophie Littlefield, it's high time to join the fun!"
   —Dark Faerie Tales
