It Had to Be You by Delynn Royer plus $25 Amazon GC Giveaway

New York City, 1924

Determined to pursue her dream of becoming a crime reporter, heiress Trixie Frank believes she's off to a running start when she lands a job at the most successful tabloid in Manhattan. Unfortunately, her high hopes fade fast when she's assigned to the rewrite desk.

Sean Costigan is a demoted homicide detective on the commissioner's blacklist. The last thing he needs complicating his life is a perky debutante with delusions of becoming the next great American journalist. Too bad she happens to hold one of the keys to solving his latest case, the Central Park murder of a notorious gangster. The other key?

Sean's childhood sweetheart, the victim's widow, who has gone missing. Sean soon has more trouble with dames than any good man deserves. But that's the least of his worries. When he suspects deadly corruption within his own department, it's not just his and Trixie's careers that depend on finding the killer. It's their lives.

It Had to Be You, a finalist for the 2014 NJRW Golden Leaf Award

Available to buy from...   Barnes and Noble   iBooks   Kobo

"This book offers the perfect elements for a 1920s whodunit, starting with the murder of a bootlegger and suspects that include a Ziegfeld girl, a sexy widow, gangsters and cops. Enter an eager reporter who's an heiress and a lone wolf cop from Hell's Kitchen. What we get is a murder mystery that surprised me in the end and a fun new romance brewing between opposites that attract."

"Ms. Royer weaves in all walks of life from the era. A Zeigfeld girl, a beautiful widow from Sean's old neighborhood, a stuffy, overbearing butler, a street urchin, and a slew of cops and gangsters. A fun trip through a wonderful time period. Well done!"

"I loved this story. It's like Nancy Drew in the twenties. Only instead of depending on her daddy's money, this girl fends for herself as a fledgling reporter."

About the Author
Delynn Royer is the older, smarter, funnier, more ornery alter ego of author Donna Grove, who, as a young mother, published several lighthearted historical romances. The first, A TOUCH OF CAMELOT, won a Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award. Soon after that, Delynn set aside her pen to concentrate on her day job and raising her two sons.

Motherhood never ends, but kids eventually fly the nest. Delynn has returned to her first love, writing. She has updated editions of her backlist to be available as ebooks and is working on new titles that she hopes will entertain and lighten readers' hearts.

IT HAD TO BE YOU is Delynn's latest ebook release, the start of a new romantic mystery series set in 1920's Manhattan, from Carina press. The second, Goodbye, Tootsie, is due out this Summer.

Aside from delving into the historical research that inspires her novels, Delynn enjoys classic movies, reading, travel and yoga. She lives with her husband in Pennsylvania.
