Winners and World War II Mysteries

Congratulations to the winners of the last contests. Crime Montage by Patricia Morin will go to Charlotte W. of Covington, GA, Kat B. from Winterset, IA, Ginger R. of Chandler, AZ and Linda L. from Camden, AR. And, Emma Sweeney's As Always, Jack will go to Gayle S. from Castle Rock, WA and Beth H. of KY. The books will go out in the mail by Saturday morning.

Speaking of Jack, this week, I'm giving away two autographed ARCs (Advanced Reading Copies) set just before the Second World War. Jack 1939 is Francine Mathews' historical novel about Jack Kennedy. The story includes a number of actual figures. Mathews' novel suggests that Kennedy toured Europe acting as a spy for FDR.

Rebecca Cantrell's A City of Broken Glass takes Hannah Vogel back to Berlin just before Kristallnact, the Night of Broken Glass. The journalist was in Poland on a minor story for her Swiss newspaper when she learned about 12,000 Polish Jews who had been deported from Germany. But, her attempt to cover that story takes her straight into danger, forcing her back to Germany.

Which autographed ARC would you like to win, Jack 1939 or A City of Broken Glass? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Your subject heading should read either "Win Jack 1939" or "Win A City of Broken Glass." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please.

The contest will end Thursday, Aug. 2 at 6 PM PT. Good luck!
