Winner and a Thriller Giveaway

Congratulations to the winner of the Catch Fire with Cleo Coyle contest.  Holly G. from Pine Hill, NJ will receive a signed galley of Cleo Coyle's Roast Mortem, and a copy of The California Firehouse Cookbook. Cleo will be sending your books.

This week, I'm honoring two of the women who won awards at the recent ThrillerFest. Lisa Gardner won Thriller of the Year for The Neighbor. The third D.D. Warren book took her into the investigation of the disappearance of a young wife and mother from her South Boston home. The only witness was her four-year-old daughter, and the only suspect was her secretive husband. I have an autographed paperback copy of The Neighbor to give away.

Last weekend, I had the chance to meet Jamie Freveletti, who won the Debut Thriller Award for her book, Running from the Devil.  That book was set in Colombia.  Now, Freveletti takes Emma Caldridge to South Africa in Running Dark.  I have an autographed copy of Jamie's new book, a thriller with everything from Somali pirates to a mysterious drug and an unknown weapon.

Do you want to win The Neighbor or Running Dark?  You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries.  Email me at Email me!. If that link doesn't work for you, the email address is: Your subject line should read either  "Win The Neighbor" or "Win Running Dark."  Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.

The contest will end Thursday, Aug. 5  at 6 p.m. PT. The winners will be selected by random number generator. I'll notify the winners and mail the books the next day. Good luck!

I greatly enjoy your blog also. It is a great source of hearing about mysteries I missed hearing of other places.

Thank you, Brenda! I'm glad I can inform you of other mysteries you might have not seen. As a librarian, that's what I like to hear. Thanks!
