Winners and an Arizona Contest

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Alan Bradley's The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie will go to Kay Z. from Austin, TX. Buddy G. of Jefferson, GA will receive Hailey Lind's Shooting Gallery.

We're celebrating Steven Havill's New Mexico mysteries this week for Detectives Around the World. Unfortunately, I don't have any books to give away that are set in his desert county. However, I do have two mysteries that include murders in Arizona. Quarry is an autographed mystery by Susan Cummins Miller. Geologist Frankie MacFarlane is working on her dissertation when a police investigation reopens a case. A body found in the desert had been identified as her ex-fiancé, but that might not be the truth. As an unknown assailant attacks members of her dissertation defense board, Frankie seems to be the center of a violent case.

Or, you could win Patricia Stoltey's The Desert Hedge Murders. When the Florida Flippers head to Laughlin, Nevada, and then an Arizona ghost town, it's a mad-cap adventure for a group of seniors in their seventies and eighties. It's up to Sylvia Thorn, escort to her mother's group, and her clairvoyant brother, Willie, to keep those feisty seniors out of trouble, while looking for a killer, who seems a little too close for comfort.

Would you like to win Quarry or The Desert Hedge Murders? You can enter to win both books, 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: Your subject line should read either, Win "Quarry" or Win "Desert Hedge." Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.

The contest will end Thursday, April 22 at 6 p.m. PT. The winners will be selected by random number generator. The winners will be notified, and the books will go out in the mail on Friday. Good luck!
