Today, November 22, 2013, is the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. It's an anniversary that reminds me of my late husband, Jim, even more than our wedding anniversary. He read everything he could on the Kennedys and the assassination. When Kris Neri invited me to write a guest post for the Femmes Fatales blog, and offered me Nov. 22, I jumped at the chance. Join me over at http://femmesfatales.typepad.com today to read my anniversary post.
Congratulations to the winners of the last giveaway. Matthew R. of Halesite, NY won C.J. Box' The Highway. Beth H. of Kentucky won Terry Shames' A Killing at Cotton Hill. I'll put the books in the mail today.
It seems appropriate to give away two mysteries featuring Native Americans during Thanksgiving week. Anne Hillerman picked up her father's Leaphorn and Chee series with Spider Woman's Daughter. When Navajo Nation police officer Bernadette Manualito witnessed the shooting of a legendary officer, she was told she couldn't participate in the investigation. Officially, she wasn't allowed to participate. That didn't mean she couldn't pool her information with her husband Sergeant Jim Chee, who was in charge of finding the shooter.
Which book would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Lesa.Holstine@gmail.com. Your subject line should read either "Win Spider Woman's Daughter" or "Win Ghost Medicine." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please.
Because of the holiday, this giveaway will end early. Please get your entries in by Tuesday night, Nov. 26 at 6 p.m. CT. I'll pick the winners and get the books out in the mail on Wednesday.
