Winners and Mysteries to Warm You Giveaway

Rita W. of Newman, CA won the copy of Mariah Stewart's At the River's Edge. That book will be sent by TLC Book Tours. The other books will go out today.

Well, it's been so cold that I surrendered and gave away cold mysteries last week. This week, I have two cozy mysteries to keep you warm. How about a Southern Quilting mystery? It's Elizabeth Craig's Quilt Trip. Of course, even in this one, there's an ice storm. Beatrice Coleman, a quilter and retired folk art curator accompanies the Village Quilters to Doppled Hills, North Carolina to a meeting to pick someone to administer a quilting scholarship. But, an ice storm traps them for the night, and in the morning, the eccentric woman who called the meeting is found murdered. Shades of Agatha Christie in a mystery in which everyone is a suspect.

Or, maybe you appreciate something woven rather than quilted. Tapestry of Lies is Carol Ann Martin's latest Weaving mystery. This one is also set in North Carolina. Della Wright is very pleased when a celebrity designer places a large custom-fabric order at her weaving studio. Bunny Boyd's client is about to announce his candidacy for governor. But, the buzz is overshadowed by the murder of a local shop owner. When Della's friend becomes the suspect, she knows she must try to unravel the mystery.

Quilting or Weaving? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Your subject line should read either "Win Quilt Trip" or "Win Tapestry of Lies." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The contest will end next Thursday, Feb 20 at 6 PM CT.
