Winners and the Year's Final Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the Southwestern mystery contest. Sandy G. from North Plainfield, NJ will receive C.C. Harrison’s Picture of Lies. Lori Hines’ The Ancient Ones will go to Pat R from Kansas City, KS.

This is the last contest of 2011. Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, I do my best not to go to the post office. But, I’m offering autographed mysteries to end the end by two of the biggest names in traditional mysteries. You can try to win for yourself, or give a book as a gift if you win.

The first is a Christmas mystery, Carolyn Hart’s Merry, Merry Ghost. Bailey Ruth Raeburn, a spirit, has a new assignment from Wiggins and Heaven’s Department of Good Intentions, protect a little boy, foil a murderer, and save Christmas. It’s too bad everyone in the little boy’s family had a motive to kill his grandmother.



Or, you could win an autographed book by one of my favorite authors. I’m giving away a copy of Louise Penny’s The Cruelest Month. The villagers of Three Pines decide to celebrate spring with a séance at the old Hadley house. When one of the group dies, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache brings in his team to determine if it was a natural death or murder.

Do you want to win Merry, Merry Ghost or The Cruelest Month? You can enter to win both, but I’ll need separate entries. Email me at lholstine@yahoo.com. Your subject heading should read either “Win Merry, Merry Ghost” or “Win The Cruelest Month.” Please include your name and mailing address in the body of the email. Entries from the U.S. only please.

The contest ends at 6 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 25, when I’ll pick the winners using a random number generator. Good luck!

You had me at the authors' names. A very merry Christmas prospect, indeed. Liz

Nice Christmas idea, isn't it, Liz? Even if it's a gift to yourself!

Oh, they both sound like good reads - more for the TBR!!

If you haven't read Louise Penny's books, Karen, start at the beginning of that series.

So you don't go to the post office during the holidays. Very smart woman! I just went to a restaurant without reservations - had no idea that the holiday parties had already started. Best wishes to you during the holiday season and thanks for all the good information you give your readers.

I love Louise Penny's series - I was hooked by the first book and am first in line for all the rest. This would be such a wonderful present for my 86-yr old aunt.

At least I try not to go, Pat. Once I'm finished with Friday's mailing, I'll try not to go. I may have to go in Ohio to send my box of clothes home after my trip there, but my hometown post office isn't as hectic as the post office here in Arizona.

Oh, and thank you so much, Pat for your kind comment. Merry Christmas!

Good luck, PatsyAnne. I hope you sent your mailing address to me at lholstine@yahoo.com.
