Kathryn Kelly BestBooks of2013So Far Award or Mention The Coach's Wife Another deafening roar exploded from the coliseum, and when it did Marla threw down her partially-smoked cigarette and ground it into the polished tile floor with the toe of her shoe.  Quickly she reached for another cigarette from the opened pack in her small red handbag.  She lit it, sucked the smoke into her mouth, held her breath, coughed, and then slowly released it.  Marla didn't smoke, but when she paced up and down the hallways of basketball coliseums, puffing on cigarettes seemed appropriate.  It gave her something to do with her hands, and it helped keep her sane.”  ISBN #: 978-1595070425								            Novel PUBLISHER: ArcheBooks Publishing			            Contemporary Suspense/Mystery Award or Mention
