I'm thrilled to announce the debut of my new series, the Museum Mysteries.
In Fundraising the Dead, Eleanor "Nell" Pratt, an administrator at a Philadelphia museum, enjoys her job, but it keeps getting complicated when she stumbles over crimes. Who knew the city's cultural community could be so deadly?
Publishers Weekly wrote: Old families, old papers, and the old demons of sex and money shape Connolly's cozy series launch, which will appeal to fans of her Orchard and (as Sarah Atwell) Glassblowing mysteries. ...the archival milieu and the foibles of the characters are intriguing, and it's refreshing to encounter an FBI man who is human, competent, and essential to the plot.
I hope you'll enjoy reading about Nell Pratt as much as I enjoy writing about her. And have fun trying to figure out which parts of the story are real (and appear in my FBI file...)
Available at both major and independent bookstores and on Amazon.
Thanks for taking a look!
