Congratulations to the winners of last week's contest. Louise Penny's A Trick of the Light will go to Beth G. from Breckenridge, CO. Sandy O. of Milford, OH won the autographed copy of Hank Phillippi Ryan's The Other Woman. I'm mailing the books today.
This week, two lucky winners will each receive two cozy mysteries. It seemed appropriate since I just did the monthly book chat featuring cozies. The first two books feature librarians. Jenn McKinlay's Due or Die is a Library Lover's Mystery. When the president of the Friends of the Library is accused of murdering her husband, library director Lindsay Norris investigates with the help of her crafternoon friends and a puppy named Heathcliff. In Elizabeth Lynn Casey's Deadly Notions, librarian Tori Sinclair and her friends in South Carolina's Sweet Briar Ladies Society sewing circle come under suspicion when a self-important pageant mom turns up dead.
Lila Dare and Grace Carroll are the authors of the books in the second package. In Die Job by Dare, a group of intrepid hairdressers investigate a tangled mystery involving a high school student and a centuries-old crime. In Grace Caroll's Died with a Bow, Rita Jewel is the primary suspect in the murder of a fellow sales clerk at Dolce's, an upscale San Francisco boutique.
Which package would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Lesa.Holstine@gmail.com. Your entries should read either "Win McKinlay/Casey" or "Win Dare/Carroll." Please include your name and mailing adddress. Entries from the U.S. only.
The contest will end Thursday, Nov. 1 at 5 a.m. Good luck!
