FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Winnipeg, March 30, 2015 — Coming this autumn, Janice MacDonald will be adding both the sixth and first installment to her Randy Craig series, Another Margaret.
Back in 1993, Janice MacDonald’s first Randy Craig mystery, The Next Margaret, was published. Now out of print, instead of simply re-printing the novel, MacDonald has taken the plot elements from the original story and integrated them into an entirely new novel, Another Margaret.
“I hope that those Randy Craig fans who read the long-gone original will enjoy the revisiting and reimagining. And for those readers who are encountering Randy’s early academic life for the first time, I hope that this look to the past will deepen her back story for readers,” says Janice MacDonald.
The sixth installment in the Randy Craig mystery series, Another Margaret finds amateur sleuth, Randy Craig, helping her best friend Denise organize their 20 year reunion at the University of Alberta. In the midst of a great flurry of planning and promotion, Randy's tumultuous past as a graduate student comes rushing into the present as she faces off against old ghosts and imminent death.
Set to coincide with the 100th year anniversary of the University of Alberta’s Alumni Association, there will certainly be plenty to celebrate in Edmonton come the fall.
One of Randy’s former colleagues puts it best. “This is going to be the yummiest reunion. It’s as if we all went to grad school with Jessica Fletcher!”
