A Christmas Mystery Giveaway

I'm in Evansville, Indiana today, so I won't end last week's contest until Saturday morning. But, I am kicking off the new contest today because I want everyone to have the chance to enter to win two terrific mysteries. I have signed ARCs (Advanced Readers Copies) to give away this week.

Cleo Coyle will be sending one lucky winner an autographed copy of the new Coffeehouse Mystery, Holiday Buzz. The holidays in New York City mean it's time for the Great New York Cookie Swap. And, Clare Cosi, manager of Village Blend Coffeehouse, is in charge of the beverage service. When the event ends in murder, Clare wants to put the killer on ice. As always, Coyle's mystery includes enticing recipes.





Or you could win a copy of Rhys Bowen's The Twelve Clues of Christmas. Lady Georgiana Rannoch escapes the dire prospects of a cold Christmas with her sister-in-law's family, taking the job as hostess for a Christmas house party. It looks like it will be wonderful when her true love, Darcy O'Mara, shows up. But, Georgie didn't count on a death a day in the small village.

Which Christmas mystery would you like to win? 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 Holiday Buzz" or "Win Twelve Clues." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please.

This contest will end Thursday morning, Nov. 22, at 6 a.m. MT. I'll announce the winners that day. Cleo will be notified, so her winner will be sent the book, and, I'll mail the other book the next day. Good luck!

Gosh, I'm sorry. I'm famous for mangling the spellings of names and I seem determined to add an extra 'e' to your name. Aughhh....

Two great picks this week----and with a Christmas theme to boot. I love Christmas themed books to read in December--it gets me in the mood.

Has any of you read this touching thriller ENRAGED by O.J.Nkeonye? It exposes the some of the evils happening in our community. Parents should read it http://t.co/jBrmKwf2
