Elizabeth Varadan
reading / signing / Q&A
Deadly Vintage

Sunday, January 19th, 3:00pm
Elizabeth Varadan’s latest thriller is a classic whodunit murder mystery. Carla Bass, an interior decorator and wannabe sleuth, moves to Braga, Portugal for her husband’s career. When a nervous wine seller accidentally slips a bottle of Port into Carla’s bag, she later attempts to return it to him--only to find his body slumped behind the counter. Unable to leave the country, Carla must crack the case herself before she becomes the next victim of the criminal conspiracy.

“This is a fine tale of mayhem and the setting is almost palpable, a heartfelt look at Portugal, plus the glorious tastes, including a tawny Port.  For a tense, twisty mystery and a sample of Portugal, Deadly Vintage hits all the taste buds!”
--Michele Drier, author of The Kandesky Vampire Chronicles and The Stained Glass Mysteries

“With straightforward prose and a compelling main character, Deadly Vintage is a solid mystery for anyone who enjoys good storytelling told right.”
--Mark Noce, author of the Queen Branwen series


Elizabeth Varadan is a former teacher who writes children’s fiction, poetry, and adult mysteries. She is a fan of both Sherlock Holmes and Edgar Allan Poe. (“The Raven” is one of her favorite poems.) Her previous stories and flash fiction have appeared in several literary magazines. Imogene and the Case of the Missing Pearls, a middle grade mystery featuring Sherlock Holmes, was published in 2015 by MX Publishing. Her short story, “Kidnapped” was included in the 2016 Sherlock Holmes-related story collection, Beyond Watson, by Belanger Books, and in 2018, Belanger Books published her children’s book Carnival of the Animals. A new story, “What the Raven Knew,” involving both Poe and Holmes, will be included in a forthcoming story collection by Belanger Books.

Deadly Vintage, released in November 2019 by Belanger Books, is her first cozy mystery for adults and is set in Braga, Portugal, a city she and her husband travel to frequently.
