Bony Blithe Light Mystery Award

The Bloody Words Light Mystery Award (aka the Bony Blithe Award), the annual Canadian award that celebrates traditional, feel-good mysteries announced that Victoria Abbott has won the 2016 award for The Marsh Madness, published by Berkley Prime Crime.

Now in its fifth year, the award is for a “mystery book that makes us smile” and includes everything from laugh-out-loud to gentle humor to good old-fashioned stories with little violence or gore.

Victoria Abbott is the nom de plume for the mother-daughter writing team of Mary Jane Maffini and Victoria Maffini. Both mother and daughter live in Ottawa, ON.

I'm not surprised in the least bit. They are fantastic writers. I enjoy every one of their books and encourage others to read them.

Ah, nice one. This book has been sitting in my 'buy later' file on Amazon since I spotted it a few weeks ago (random Ngaio Marsh related browsing). Will have to grab it now.
