Winners and a Book Lover's Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Cynthia H. from Norman Park, GA will receive the autographed ARC of Brad Parks' The Girl Next Door. Sophie Littlefield's A Bad Day for Scandal will go to Virginia D. of Tempe, AZ . I'll put the books in the mail tomorrow.

This week, it truly is a giveaway for book lovers because both mysteries relate to books. I'm giving away Lucy Arlington's Buried in a Book and Miranda James' File M for Murder.

Arlington's Buried in a Book features a journalist who becomes an intern at a literary agency, only to find a murdered man on a couch in the agency when she returns from lunch on her first day of work. Since no one seems to take the man's death seriously, she plunges into the investigation.

Miranda James' File M for Murder features librarian Charlie Harris and his Maine coon cat, Diesel. Charlie's thrilled to have his daughter stay with him while she subs for a professor during the fall semester. But, when a famous playwright is murdered, and Laura used to date him, she becomes a suspect. Charlie and Diesel follow the trail of former lovers, enemies, and research in order to prove Laura is innocent.

Which book-related mystery do you want to read, Buried in a Book or File M for Murder? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email your entries to me at Your subject headings should read either "Win Buried in a Book" or "Win File M for Murder." Please include your name and mailing address in the email. Entrants from the U.S. only please.

The contest runs until 6 p.m. PT on Thursday, April 26. I'll pick the winners using a random number generator. Good luck!
