A Quick Book Giveaway

This is a quick book contest. I know I just returned from NYC, but I leave again on Wednesday, this time for Ohio to celebrate my mother's birthday. So, I'm holding a quick book giveaway. It starts right now, and I'm ending it Monday night, May 30th at 5 PM PT. Then, I can get the books in the mail before I leave.

I have autographed copies of two traditional mysteries. If you haven't read any of Earlene Fowler's mysteries, you should start with Fool's Puzzle, the first Benni Harper book. After her husband's death, Benni Harper moves to San Celina, California, where she takes a job as director of a folk art museum. Benni stumbles upon the body of a brutally stabbed artist, tries to conduct her own investigation, and meets the local police chief, who likes the short and sassy cowgirl.  This is the first book that brought us the mysteries with intriguing quilt titles that hint at the storyline.

Or, you could win Miranda James' most recent Cat in the Stacks mystery,  Classified as Murder.  I have an autographed ARC of the story that takes librarian Charlie Harris and his Maine coon cat, Diesel, into the library, and the murder, of a book collector.

Which mystery would you like to win, Fool's Puzzle or Classified as Murder? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries.  Email me at lholstine@yahoo.com.  The subject lines should read, either "Win Fool's Puzzle" or "Win Classified as Murder."  Include your name and mailing address in the body of the email.  Entries only from the U.S., please.

The contest will close Monday, May 30 at 5 PM PT when I'll draw the winners using a random number generator.  The books will go out in the mail on Tuesday.  Good luck!
