Winners and A Little Humor Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. P.J. Tracy's Off the Grid will go to Jane L. from Diamondhead, MS. And,  Penny T. from Klamath Falls, OR won Linda Fairstein's Night Watch. I'll put them in the mail tomorrow.

It's time to give away a couple humorous mysteries. Let's start with Donna Andrews' Some Like It Hawk. Meg Langslow is working as a blacksmith at "Caerphilly Days," a festival inspired by the town's notoriety as "The Town That Mortgaged Its Jail." The lender has foreclosed on all Caerphilly's public buildings, but one town employee won't leave. Phineas Throckmorton, the town clerk, has been barricaded in the courthouse basement for over a year. When an executive is found shot, Throckorton is the suspect. But, Meg and the townspeople are determined to keep their secrets and find out who the real killer is.

Or, you could win Marian Babson's No Cooperation from the Cat. This mystery features the aging actresses Trixie and Evangeline, along with Cho-Cho-San, a Japanese bobtail cat. Trixie and Evangeline become entangled in a mystery when they learn that Trixie's daughter, Martha, wasn't the first choice to write a cookbook. The woman originally working on it died after eating one of the recipes.

Which book would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. And, it isn't easy to type No Cooperation from the Cat. So, I'll make it easy this week. Email me at Your subject heading should read either "Win Hawk" or "Win The Cat." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please.

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