Death in Advertising
by Laura Bradford
A fun start to a new cozy series! It combines mystery, a variety of character personalities and even a budding romance.
Tobi and the other characters are so likable that you’ll wish you had your hands on book 2 right away – not because there’s a cliffhanger (there isn’t) but because you just want to keep spending time with them.

One thing you can count on in any of Laura’s books is a strong cast of characters who truly care for each other. Tobi has a wide and varied assortment of friends, neighbors, and family who all support her throughout this book.
This is a delightful debut for this new series. The characters are very engaging and I really love this theme.

This is the first book in the series, and all the new characters kept me guessing which one was guilty. Speaking of characters this story had quite a cast. From a feathery witness to a quirky grandfather the author kept me entertained.
~Deal Sharing Aunt
Death In Advertising is an entertaining cozy whodunit filled with enough humor, drama, and intriguing twists and turns that will easily keep the reader engaged and guessing the identity of the killer.
~Jersey Girl Book Reviews
I have read other books by this author and enjoyed them immensely, so I was thrilled to hear that she was beginning a new series, and jumped at the chance to read it. I was not disappointed…in fact, I think this is now my favorite of the many series she has written.
Intelligent writing … character depth … well-plotted mystery … charming humor. Death in Advertising is a delightful read and Laura Bradford has quickly become one of my very favorite mystery writers.

Death in Advertising (A Tobi Tobias Mystery)
1st in Series
Publisher: Lyrical Underground (February 7, 2017)
Approximately 300 PAGES
When Tobi Tobias decided to open her own ad agency, having to moonlight in a pet shop wasn’t part of her vision . . . of course, neither was murder.
Sometimes when opportunity knocks, the door you open leads to a closet. That’s certainly the case for Tobi, whose weekends spent cleaning cages in her best friend’s pet shop may soon be over. She’s just landed her first big break—Zander Closet Company needs a catchy campaign slogan ASAP, and Tobi thinks she’s got the right hook to knock ’em dead: “When we’re done, even your skeletons will have a place.”
But when a real dead body topples out of a showcase closet, she’s about to discover there is such a thing as bad publicity. To save her fledgling business and not get killed by the competition, Tobi takes on a new pet project: solving the murder. But with a stressed-out parrot as the only witness to the crime, Tobi will really have to wing it to put the cagey killer behind bars.
About The Author
While spending a rainy afternoon at a friend’s house more than thirty years ago, Laura Bradford (a.k.a.

From that moment forward, she never wanted to do anything else.
Today, Laura is the national bestselling author of the Amish Mysteries, the Jenkins & Burns Mysteries, and the Southern Sewing Circle Mysteries (written as Elizabeth Lynn Casey). A new cozy mystery series will be added to the mix in 2016 with the release of The Emergency Dessert Squad Mysteries. Laura is a former Agatha nominee and the recipient of an RT Reviewer’s Choice Award in romance.
