Welcome to a fun MYSTERY novel giveaway. I have not one but TWO autographed books to give away to TWO lucky participants!!
Erik Therme and I were workmates some years ago and I just found out he has authored a mystery novel. We got to talking about it and he offered me autographed book and I told him send me another. I knew some of my Facebook fans have to be readers and everyone loves to win something for free, right?! He was generous and sent me two!
So without further adieu here is a cover shot of his book "MORTOM," a little bit about the book and get to know Erik a little.
Mortom: population 986.
On the outskirts of town, 33-year-old Craig Moore is found drowned in the lake. A loner and town eccentric, few attend the funeral.
One week later Andy Crowl arrives in Mortom, still stunned by his cousin’s death and equally confused why everything was left to him. The two hadn’t spoken in years and shared little outside of fierce childhood competition.
But Craig hardly did him a favor. The estate amounts to little more than a drained bank account and a dilapidated property overridden with junk. When Andy finds a dead rat under the refrigerator with a key in its mouth, he thinks it’s some sort of sick joke. Then he finds the letter left by Craig, written two days before his death … detailing the rules of “the game.”
Erik Therme has thrashed in garage bands, (inadvertently) harbored runaways, and met Darth Vader. None of these have come close to the thrill of releasing his debut novel, Mortom.

I happened upon Iowa City author Erik Therme’s “Mortom” when a Facebook friend recommended it and noted that the e-edition was on sale. I grabbed a copy and soon found myself drawn in. Therme’s debut novel is a fast-paced mystery/thriller built around family secrets and long-held grudges. –Rob Cline Cedar Rapids Gazette His next book is already in the works!!
1/4 cup honey 1 Tablespoon olive oil 2-3 teaspoons finely chopped fresh Rosemary 1-1/2 pound pork tenderloin olive oil salt and pepper
Mix together honey, 1 T olive oil and Rosemary in a small sauce pan. Use the 3 teaspoon measure if you like more Rosemary flavor.
Bring to boil and cook for 30 seconds.
Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Pat pork dry and brush with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
Grill over medium-hot fire for about 15 minutes turning every few minutes so all sides get time on the grates. Brush on honey Rosemary glaze, continue to turn and glaze for another 5 minutes or until meat thermometer reads at least 145 degrees. This is pork's new safety standard. This cut of meat can go a little higher and will still be tender.
Rest your meat under a foil tent for 3-5 minutes. Slice. As you can see mine was still juicy so I poured the juices back over the meat when I served it.
Use this glaze on other cuts of pork (change the cooking times) or even chicken!
