Anniversary Giveaway #6

Agatha Award-winning author G.M. Malliet is another author I've never met. She and I were at Left Coast Crime at the same time, but I only saw her across the room at a breakfast. She's the author of the St. Just series. But, in 2011, she launched a new traditional mystery series with Wicked Autumn. I have an ARC (advanced reading copy) of that book to give away.

Malliet manages to bring so many elements of the tradtional British village mystery to this book that it makes it a treat. The sleuth, Max Tudor is a former MI5 agent turned Anglican priest. And, it's the day of the village's annual Harvest Fayre when the murder occurs. So, we have the priest as the sleuth, a village fair, and a village full of suspects in a story brought up-to-date by the use of Ebay to sell village products. Wicked Autumn is a fun traditional mystery that celebrates the best of the British mystery.

If you would like to win Wicked Autumn, email me at Lesa.Holstine@gmail.com.Your subject line should read, "Win Wicked Autumn." Please include your name and mailing address. The winner will be announced on Thursday, Jan. 12 at 6 p.m. MT.

Thank you for being so generous on your blogaversary, it is I that feels like presents should be for you.

Lesa said...

Oh, thank you! But, I might have gotten tired of writing it if people hadn't been reading the blog. So, I appreciate all of you!

Happy blogging-anniversary Lesa! I am another of those often-readers but not-so-often commenters. I work in a small public library in Montreal and I order all our pocketbooks so I love coming to your blog for ideas and reviews. Thanks so much for all your hard work!

I would love to take part in the draws but I wasn't sure if they were open to Canadian readers or not. I know most of the draws are US-only but thought I'd check since it wasn't stated this time.

Either way - it's a really lovely way to celebrate!
