Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Carol-Lynn R. of Winthrop, Maine won Laura Lippman's I'd Know You Anywhere. Paul Doiron's The Poacher's Son is going to Kathy S. from Alba, TX. I'll put the books in the mail tomorrow.
This week, I'm giving away autographed books from two authors who appeared today for Authors @ The Teague. Kate Carlisle's Murder Under Cover was just released this week, so you might not own it yet. It's the latest book in the Bibliophile Mystery series. Bookbinder Brooklyn Wainwright is looking forward to restoring a beautiful copy of the Kama Sutra for her best friend. But, before she can even get started, her friend Robin is in big trouble. Her apartment is ransacked, and a man she recently met is found murdered in her bed. Robin is the number one suspect. Fortunately, Brooklyn's boyfriend has just moved to town, and can help her investigate what appears to be an international conspiracy.
Or you could win Avery Aames' first book in her Cheese Shop mystery, The Long Quiche Goodbye. Although Avery's second book, Lost and Fondue, just came out, I thought you might want an autographed copy of the first book, since Avery just won the Agatha Award for Best First Novel for this one. Try to win to own it as an award winner, or an introduction to the series. Discover the Fromagerie Bessette in Providence, Ohio. Meet proprietor Charlotte Bessette, her friends and family. You'll love the discussion of cheese. Oh, and Charlotte has to turn amateur sleuth when her beloved grandmother, the mayor of Providence, is accused of murdering a nasty landlord with one of Charlotte's beautiful knives.
Which book would you like to win, Murder Under Cover of The Long Quiche Goodbye? You can enter to win both books, but I need separate entries. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject lines should read, either "Win Murder Under Cover " or "Win The Long Quiche Goodbye." Include your name and mailing address in the body of the email. Entries only from the U.S., please.
The contest will close Thursday, May 12 at 6 PM PT when I'll draw the winners using a random number generator. The books will go out in the mail on Friday. Good luck!
