Winners and a Favorite Author Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Sandy G. of North Plainfield, NJ won Carole Nelson Douglas' Cat in an Alien X-Ray. And, Kathy G. of Warsaw, IN won The Cat Sitter's Cradle by Blaize & John Clement.

This week, I'm giving away books by a couple of my favorite authors. A Cold White Sun is the latest Constable Molly Smith mystery by Vicki Delany, but as I said when I reviewed it, you don't have to have read earlier books in the series to enjoy this one. While Molly struggles with her personal life, and helps Sergeant John Winters, he's involved in a tough murder investigation. Who would want to kill an English teacher while she's on a hiking trail? It's another terrific atmospheric mystery from Delany.

Speaking of atmosphere, Linda Castillo's thrillers are set in Amish country in Ohio. In Her Last Breath, Police Chief Kate Burkholder investigates the hit-and-run accident that killed most of an Amish family. Kate's childhood friendship with the victims' wife and mother makes her even more determined to find the person responsible for the deaths of an innocent family.

Which book would you like to read? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Your subject heading should read either "Win A Cold White Sun" or "Win Her Last Breath." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please.

The contest will end Thursday night, Sept. 19 at 6 p.m. CT.
