"No Home. No Family. No Place to Hide.
For Summer Newcombe, that's only the beginning."

Today begins the book launch for Carol Kilgore's novel  IN NAME ONLY.  This MYSTERY* SUSPENSE* DRAMA is what Carol affectionately calls, "Crime Fiction with a kiss."

Carol has also published many short stories, most notably, Blues In The Night. This piece was " short-listed for the Derringer Award for Best Flash Story of 2010." She has also written in mystery anthologies including Map of Murder, and the private eye anthology Hardbroiled.

To showcase her humorous side, Carol contributed to Staying Sane When Your Family Comes To Visit.  The author compares it to, "The Chicken Soup books, except with more humor and solid tips on getting through family visits from those of us who have been there and survived!"

To celebrate her debut novel IN NAME ONLY, Carol is offering prizes at  Under The Tiki Hut.  Be sure to visit her delightful blog equipped with a Friday Top Ten List. 

IN NAME ONLY promises to be an entertaining read that has something for everyone. Did I mention that there's even a handsome firefighter potential love interest, and that Summer Newcombe is no slouch?  Someone with that name must certainly have an interesting background, and what exactly is she trying to hide? To find out the answers to these questions and more, buy your copy today.
*Amazon.com is featuring the Kindle Edition for $3.99, or the paperback for $11.99.
