Winners & Mysteries in Europe's Past Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Miranda James' File M for Murder will go to Wendy A. of Ferndale, WA. And,  Becky K from Grayslake, IL will receive Lucy Arlington's Buried in a Book. I'll put the books in the mail tomorrow.

This week, I'm giving away autographed mysteries set in the past, Jacqueline Winspear's Elegy for Eddie and Cara Black's Murder at the Lanterne Rouge. You can escape into England between the wars, or to Paris in 1998. Both books are ARCs, Advanced Review Copies.

Elegy for Eddie is the latest entry in Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs series. Maisie takes on a personal case, one that will take her from her childhood neighborhood in London where men who worked with her father ask for her help, to the highest echelons of power, parties in which Winston Churchill is present. In April 1933, a group of men seek answers to a death. Eddie Pettit's death was reported to be accidental, but the men think he was murdered. This story hints at the European troubles to come.




Murder at the Lanterne Rouge finds Cara Black's investigator, Aimee Leduc, leery about her business partner's new girlfriend. However, when that woman disappears in the middle of her birthday party, Aimee goes looking for the missing woman. It's a search that will take her deep into Chinatown and a case that involves illegal immigrants, dirty police, and lost secrets of the Knights Templar.

Do you want to win Elegy for Eddie or Murder at the Lanterne Rouge? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Lesa.Holstine@gmail.com. Your subject headings should read either "Win Elegy for Eddie" or "Win Murder at the Lanterne Rouge." Include your name and mailing address in the body of the email. Entrants from the U.S. only, please.

The contest will end Thursday, May 3 at 6 PM PT. I'll select the winners, using a random number generator, and notify them that night. Good luck!
