Local residents are invited to join Eileen Rendahl, a Davis resident and the award-winning and national bestselling author of the Messenger series, to celebrate the publication of her 10th novel. The fun begins at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 1, at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in downtown Davis. Refreshments will be served.

“Dead Letter Day” is the third novel in Rendahl’s Messenger series, urban fantasies that take place in Sacramento. In the book, Melina’s missing friend, Paul, could just be taking a little werewolf “me time,” but her investigation yields something more sinister. Shrieking crows and sudden windstorms rattle Melina’s nerves. Encounters with a mermaid, a deranged police officer and patterns for Norwegian doilies lead her to face the most powerful enemy she has ever faced.

“Don’t Kill the Messenger,” the first book in the series, was awarded a starred review from Publishers’ Weekly and a National Readers Choice Award. It was also a finalist for the Prism, the Booksellers’ Best Award and the Daphne du Maurier Award. The Chicago Tribune called it an “exciting, sexy, and hilarious debut.”

The second book in the series, “Dead on Delivery,” was a Romantic Times Top Pick and is “a delight to read,” according to Fresh Fiction.

Rendahl also writes romantic suspense as Eileen Carr, garnering praise from Publishers’ Weekly and Romantic Times including “fascinating mystery,” “compelling characters” and “starts off like a rocket.”

Excerpts from all the books can be found at Rendahl’s website, www.EileenRendahl.com.
