Cue the (Virtual) Confetti!

Whoop! Whoop! The virtual confetti is flying and the virtual horns are blowing! (And fireworks and anything else that screams celebration!) Why? Because today marks the e-book publication of the third in my Detective Cancini Mystery Series, THE LAST SIN. (The paperback will be available April 18th).
