This month is March Mystery Madness at A Novel Spot. Every mystery you buy will get you one entry into our prize draw. And when you buy three mysteries at once, you'll receive a special mystery package from us!
Our Winter Picks promotion lasts until March 20th. Stock up for your March Break getaway--or if you're staying home, treat yourself to a brand new book.
And Jennifer Robson, author of our Winter Pick Somewhere in France, visits the store on Sunday, March 9th at 2 p.m. Somewhere in France is the deeply moving story of a young woman trying to make a life for herself in WWI-era France.
