Book Giveaway: Claudia Must Die By T. B. Markinson

One of the many things I love about this wonderful blogging community is not only the many stories we share and friendships we make, but the ways in which we support and encourage one another in so many ways.

I can’t remember how I met one of my good blogging friends T. B. Markinson but I know I hadn’t been blogging long when we did.  T.B. is an American writer living in London so you can imagine the stories we have exchanged.


It was such a thrill when she invited me to write a guest post –My Writing Journey – The Heat Is On! – as far back as December 2013.  It was a fantastic experience, and the first time I publicly shared what drew me to writing my memoir; I was overwhelmed by the amazing support and encouragement I received from friends then, friends still.

So it was an honour for me to then host T.B.’s guest post – An American in London – shortly thereafter.  She was a big hit, as I knew she would be! And yes, I know that she is still keeping an eye on me as I write on, even as she busily scribbles away on her latest WIP, which blows my mind as she has now published not one, not two but four books, with another due for release shortly.

Which brings me to….the reason for this post and some exciting news: T. B. is giving away free, yes, I said FREE, copies of her recently published book, Claudia Must Die, from tomorrow, 20th February until 23rd February!

Here are the links, blurb and excellent reviews:

Amazon (US)

Amazon Link (UK)


The blurb:

Claudia doesn’t feel like herself anymore—she feels like prey. Her husband’s hired goons have stalked her all the way to Boston and will only stop their pursuit once she is dead.

Divorce is not an option. Instead, she has stolen a bunch of her man’s money to disappear into another life.

In order for Claudia to live, someone else must die. A lookalike college student becomes the target capable of freeing her from an awful marriage.

The plan goes horribly awry. Instead of murdering Claudia’s double, the assassins shoot the woman’s lover who is the cousin of a powerful Irish mobster. Claudia becomes hunted by all involved. Can she survive? Should she?


“The novel is action-packed and suspenseful, with some humorous scenes.”
 Medeia Sharif Blog

“What follows is a hair raising, seemingly never ending chase which is like a revolving crime circle where everyone is after each other but where some of the players end up becoming unlikely partners in order to survive.” — Cindy Taylor

“T.B. Markinson delivers again with her fourth novel, Claudia Must Die, in a fast-paced comedic story of kill or be killed.”  Rachel Author Barnard Blog

“For me, this book is a real winner. The characters, plot twists, and deliciously dark humor make it a most enjoyable… and quick… read.” — I Think, Therefore I Yam Blog

“This unique thriller keeps you on the edge of your seat.” — Christine Rains, author of Fearless.

  1. Sounds an exciting read, Sherri. Will download it and add it to my ever-lengthening reading queue that is growing faster than available reading minutes in the day. Thanks for introducing T.B. Markinson. Will go and check out her blog.


  2. I’ll start reading it tonight. Ordered it on Amazon. I love mysteries with humor in them. Janet Evanovich was my all time favorite. She could make me laugh out loud. I read very little fiction but a good mystery with a funny bone will get me every time. I’ll go back shortly and read the rest of the original posts


  3. Thanks for spreading the news, Sherri! TB is great and I love her picture. 🙂
