Books That Make You Tuck In With a Great Mystery

We all love a book that makes you want to pour a cup of joe and cozy up by the crackling fireplace. And that’s what Donalee Moulton delivers in her debut novel, Hung Out to Die.

The mystery follows Riel, a California-born transplant to Nova Scotia, where he is CEO of the Canadian Cannabis Corporation. Things seem to work out—until Riel finds his world hanging by a thread as a killer emerges. It doesn’t take the police long to determine all is not as it appears … and that includes Riel himself, now pulled into a world not of his making.

A freelance journalist based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Donalee’s byline has appeared in more than 100 publications, including Canadian Business, The National Post, Chatelaine, Maclean’s, and The Lawyers Weekly.

In addition, Donalee is the author of The Thong Principle: Saying What You Mean and Meaning What You Say, as well as the co-author of Celebrity Court Cases: Trials of the Rich and Famous. Her short story, Swan Song, was one of 21 selected for Cold Canadian Crime, an anthology published by the Crime Writers of Canada.
