Tomorrow, the month long time that I have been the Special Feature on Debdatta Sahay's comprehensive blog on books will end.  She is finishing the month with an interview she did with me.  She asked, and I answered the things she was curious about.  I have to admit I will miss having her probe my mind and the minds of my characters, but once again I thank her for her interest and for finding the things I love to write fun to read.  Here is the link to her post.

 Antique Discovery Book Review by Debdatta Dasgupta Sahay Posted on: May 3rd, 2013 by David M. Assigned categories: Book Reviews, IHB Contributor Writes Antique Discovery (Alicia Trent Series #3) by Eileen Harris Antique Discovery [Kindle Edition] By Eileen Harris

Alicia Trent is back! The story starts with Nick and Barry planning out a vacation for Nick and Alicia. Seeing this as an opportunity to spend some quality time with Nick, Alicia agrees. It is only after planning the whole thing out that Alicia realizes that the date of clock’s prediction would fall within their prediction. But as we know, the clocks prediction always comes true, and this time was no different. While experiencing the desert feel on a ranch turned holiday resort owned by Nick, Alicia gets entangled in another new mystery. A murder takes place on the ranch and the victim was a very shady person. What was he doing at the resort? Who is his accomplice on the outside? Who is the man who has made his home in a secluded corner within the ranch boundaries? Everyone on the ranch seems to have a secret to hide… And then Alicia and Nick make a very important discovery. I have had immense pleasure reading the first two novels in the series – Antique Magic and Antique Forgery. Needless to say that I was eagerly awaiting for this one. The prediction provided at the end of the last book was enough to keep my interest fired throughout the waiting period. Ms.Harris has, yet again, delivered a wonderful piece of work. The consistency in her writing – both characters and plot – never ceases to impress me. Also, I can never rave enough about Ms.Eileen’s style of writing – simple language, ordinary words – yet an extraordinary product. She even described the resort (ranch area) so well that I could probably draw you a map of it. Having been in two tight situations already, Alicia appeared to be more prepared this time. But what awaited her on the date of the prediction and the days that followed were things that she couldn’t have imagined in her wildest dreams. Of course, being with Nick on his known turf provided them with some advantage. Then Lawrence made an appearance at the most crucial moment of the adventure, while Laudine did her part too. Yes, Laudine does make an appearance along with her mouth watering dishes. While the mystery was wrapped up nicely, developments in the personal front of both Alicia and Nick’s life, separately, left me surprised. I won’t tell you what developments they were because that would be big spoilers, but believe me if you have been following the series then while the development in Nick’s life will make you happy, the one in Alicia’s life will leave you shocked! Overall, it’s a great addition to the series and one that has raised my expectation of the upcoming fourth book. If I haven’t made it clear already, I would recommend everyone to get their hands on not only this book, but the whole series.

Debdatta Dasgupta Sahay has a wonderful website that reviews new novels by a wide range of writers. In the past she has reviewed several of my books. Each month she chooses one writer to be the special feature author for her blog. I was extremely flattered when she chose me for her May special feature. She is covering all four books in the Alicia Trent Mystery Series, as well as the stand alone book Desert Shadow. Debdatta does a great job both with her website and in giving her readers a good look at the books she reviews. As part of this up close and personal look at the characters in the books, we are giving away a full set of the Alicia Trent series. Wrangling a book from the mind to publication is always a big job, and recognition like Debdatta gives to authors is always a joy. So, Debdatta, thank you for your continued interest in what I do.
