Congratulations to all the winners of the Blog Anniversary Giveaways! Thank you for entering the contests. And, I really want to thank everyone for participating in this special anniversary giveaway. I hope you continue to read the blog, and enter the contests in the future.I enjoy sharing the wealth of books.

Here are the winners. (I will be contacting you later tonight.)

Now that the blog anniversary giveaways are over, it's time to kick off the weekly giveaways for 2012. If you're new to Lesa's Book Critiques, I give away two books a week, usually starting and ending the contests on Thursday nights, unless my schedule forces a change. This week, I'm giving away traditional mysteries. And, my rules stipulate you have to submit separate entries for each book.

This week, you could win an Advanced Reading Copy (ARC) of Carolyn Hart's Dare to Die. Dare to Die is part of her Death on Demand series. A mysterious, beautiful young woman named Iris shows up on Broward's Rock, tearing the town apart. Annie and Max Darling are perplexed until Iris attends a party at their house, and an unknown assailant tries to kill them.

Or you could win a hardcover copy of Katherine Hall Page's The Body in the Gazebo. Faith Fairchild, the caterer and amateur sleuth, has two crimes on her hands. One is over eighty years old. And, the other involves her husband, and the theft of funds at his church. Faith wants to clear her husband's name while solving a crime that goes back to the Great Depression.

So, pay attention here! I'm changing the email address to enter these contests. You must email me at in order to enter. I need separate entries for each. Your subject line should read either, "Win Dare to Die" or "Win The Body in the Gazebo." You must include your name and mailing address in the body of the entry, or you can't win. Entries only from the U.S., please.

The winning entries will be selected by random number generator when the contest ends at 6 PM MT on Thursday, Jan. 19th.

Good luck!
