The Sherlock Holmes Connection Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. I mailed Dyeing Wishes to Lisa G. of Pensacola Beach, FL, and Tarnished and Torn to Sue C. of Eugene, OR.

This week, the titles of both books have a Sherlock Holmes connection. The Hen of the Baskervilles is the latest Meg Langslow mystery by Donna Andrews. Catch up with Meg and her family at the Virginia Un-Fair, where a bantam rooster goes missing on the first night. And, when one of Meg's friends is suspected of killing her husband, instead of divorcing him, Meg has to sort out the truth.

Michael Robertson brings back brothers Reggie and Nigel Heath in The Baker Street Translation. They lease law offices at 221B Baker Street in London and answer mail sent to Sherlock Holmes. Once again, they find themselves pulled into a case straight out of Arthur Conan Doyle. An elderly American heiress wants to leave her entire fortune to Sherlock Holmes. A translator wants Holmes to explain a nursery rhyme. And Robert Buxton, Reggie's rival for the love of an actress, has gone missing.

Which book would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Your subject heading should read either "Win The Hen of the Baskervilles" or "Win The Baker Street Translation." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please.

The giveaway will end on Thursday, August 15 at 6 p.m. CT.

It is marvelous how many clever writers are finding/creating stories that play off the Sherlock legend.
