Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Donna Andrews' Swan for the Money will go to Lisa P. from Chelmsford, MA. You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Kills You by Robert J. Randisi will go to Michael C. of Kalamazoo, MI. The books will go in the mail tomorrow.
This week's contest will end one day early since I'll be leaving for Tucson for the Tucson Festival of Books on Friday. So, enter by Wednesday night!
This week, I'm giving away two recent releases. I have an ARC of Nancy Martin's Our Lady of Immaculate Deception. It's your chance to meet Roxy Abruzzo, a strong-willed single mother, with a few flaws. These flaws can be easily overlooked by many readers, but don't enter to win this one if you're looking for a sweet cozy mystery with a "nice" character. Roxy will be a little too "in-your-face" for some readers. For the rest of us, she's a forthright character who lives her own life, knows she has problems, but lives life by her own rules anyways.
Or you could win Krista Davis' The Diva Paints the Town. Here's a book for
cozy mystery fans. Sometimes it seems as if Sophie Winston is the only sane person in Krista Davis' book. Thank heavens someone keeps their head during the renovation of a house, coordination of a home show, and the investigation of a couple murders. Then, there's the TV diva Sophie has to cope with, who's dating Sophie's ex-husband.
You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries for each. If you'd like to win one, email me at Email me!. If that link doesn't work for you, the email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Your subject line should read either, Win "The Diva Paints the Town" or Win "Immaculate Deception." Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.
The contest will end Wednesday, March 10 at 6 p.m. MT. The winners will be drawn by random number generator. The winners will be notified, and the books will go out in the mail on Thursday. Good luck!
