Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli is offering two lucky people a chance to be one of the very first readers of her newest book releasing July 12, 2016
A MOST CURIOUS MURDER
Please be aware that this is a galley copy and is the UNcorrected version, but does have the cover art….so there will be some errors. However, I know her latest book will be a riveting tale!
Elizabeth Buzzelli also writes under the name Elizabeth Lee and is the author of two books that I’ve shared on my blog: A TOUGH NUT TO KILL and NUTS AND BURIED.
While I have not had a chance to read the galley myself (but I will, soon!) I will definitely be sharing my review along with a recipe from the author when the book releases. In the meantime, here is what Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli has to say about her book along with a brief overview:
In honor of Alice in Wonderland, and Alice’s 150th birthday, I have written A Most Curious Murder, a mystery with Alice In Wonderland overtones and undertones. Of course, there were murders in the original, and a great deal of madness, so how could I write anything less? A couple of dead bodies, a Little Person who is a well-known expert on ‘Alice’, and Bear Falls, Michigan, a small Michigan town where everyone might be a suspect in the demise of two brothers.
Jenny Weston moves home to Bear Falls, located on the shores of Lake Michigan, to nurse her bruised ego back to health after a bitter divorce. It is a very strange town with tangled and damaged lives. There is budding love. There is old money. But the idyllic vision of her charming hometown crumbles when her mother’s little library is destroyed.
The next door neighbor, Zoe Zola, a little person and Lewis Carroll enthusiast, suspects local curmudgeon Adam Cane, but when he’s suddenly found dead in Zoe’s fairy garden, all roads lead back to her. Jenny, however, believes Zoe innocent, so the two women team up to find the true culprit, investigating the richest family in Bear Falls, interrogating a few odd townspeople and delving into old, hidden transgressions–until another body turns up.

That’s one story I don’t care for. Didn’t like the book/poem, didn’t like the Disney version and didn’t see Tim Burton’s version. Not sure why.
I love Alice in Wonderland. Although Tim Burton’s version was a creative presentation to this tale, I prefer the book. Thanks so much for your giveaway. firstname.lastname@example.org
Really enjoy stories set along Lake Michigan and in the state of Michigan. Sounds like an interesting read.
I haven’t seen Tim Burton’s version so I can’t have a fair preference but I always like the book better! Thanks for this giveaway!
I love Tim Burton so I’ll have to say his 🙂
I grew up on the print version and love it’s weirdness.
I am ashamed to say that I have never read it, my daughter just read it so I have plans to read it finally. I remember seeing an old movie when I was a kid and thought that it was neat. Then I saw Disney’s and loved it. I like Tim Burton’s version but after that I decided I had to read it and see which is closest to the book. One of my goals for this year.
Partial to Tim Burton’s.
I loved the original of course but Tim Burton always makes you look at the story in a new way.
Ummm never read the book but have seen some of the movies. Not sure how this book would be but would like a chance to read it if i win it,lol.
I think the book is better! I always think the book is better! lol
Alice In Wonderland was never a favorite of mine, but your book looks adorable! Thank you for the chance to win!
I’ve always loved the book Alice in Wonderland. Although I love Tim Burton, I prefer the cartoon version over his take. The scenery was awesome though.
I like the sound of this story & the way it brings in elements of the fairy tale.
I like the book best. I have seen many film versions. Disney is cute.
I’m with the majority, and prefer the book to the movies. I haven’t seen the Burton one. Your book sounds intriguing- love the cover.
I like Disney’s version over Burton’s version.
I like the print version the best–but for a visual take, I prefer the creative Burton take on the story.
Wow! Looks like a fight between Tim Burton and Lewis Carroll! Can’t wait to see who wins. Mine is only the theme of Alice in Wonderland—oh, and maybe a white rabbit, and maybe a disgruntled old queen or two. And my Little Person ,who is a magical person all by herself. Enjoy–whoever wins–and remember the errors are mine and mine alone. I’ve already sent in 39 pages of changes–but mostly commas–so don’t throw the book at the wall and say what a lunkhead writer this person is!!!
I have to say that the book is almost always better but if I had to pick a movie, it would be the Disney version. By the way, I use to read this book to my daughter when she was little.
adding to my tbr list
I like the Disney version better, but I prefer the book.
Can’t wait to read
This looks like a fascinating read!
Thanks for a great opportunity!! The book sounds delightful!
Looks really good! Thanks for the chance!
Books are always better! Between the movie versions definitely Disney. Thanks for the giveaway! Looks like a great new series.
Thank you for the giveaway opportunity!
I loved the book but as far as the movies go I liked Tim Burtons version! Thanks for the chance!
I almost always prefer the book, but the Disney movie was my favorite. Thanks for the chance to win….sounds great!
This looks like a good read.. I enjoy books set on the Great Lakes, as I live very close to Lake Erie now.. Thanks for the opportunity to win..
I almost always prefer the book. If I had to pick between the two movie versions I would pick the Disney version.
I would have to go with the original – the Disney version – while I haven’t watched either one, I think Disney would do the best, most imaginative sets, clothing, etc to make it top notch. This book sounds really good!
I’ve actually never seen the entire movie! I’ve seen bits and pieces, but no of the Tim Burton one. To me the book is almost always better.
Sounds like a must read to me.
Would lobe to read this book
Didn’t enjoy Tim Burton version and I love Alice
I loved the book and the Disney Movie…”Alice in Wonderland.” The lines in it are great… my favorite is the Red Queen but the Caterpillar is good too. Thanks for the contest.
I’d love to win a copy of thisbook. New to me author and I’m trying to talk my son into building me a LITTLE LIBRARY. Pus Alice in Wonderland. Tim Burton and fairy gardens.. Thanks for the chance.
Sounds like a really fun series…looking forward to reading this
Have never seen Tim Burton’s version so would go with Disney’s
Don’t think I’ve read either one.
