It’s hard to believe another season of year-end lists and 2012 awards is rolling around, but yet it is! And it’s kicking off in style for Jeri Westerson, whose TROUBLED BONES (reviews/buy), the newest Crispin Guest medieval noir historical mystery is a finalist for the Romantic Times 2011 Award for Best Historical Mystery. This is Jeri’s sixth award nomination in just four novels — every single Crispin Guest mystery has contended for either an RT, a Shamus, a Macavity, or Left Coast Crime. Congratulations, Jeri!!
