Winners and Women of Crime Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Karen R. of Katy, TX won Michael Robertson's Moriarty Returns a Letter. Karen E. from Montgomery, AL won The Spook Lights Affair by Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini. The books will go out in the mail tomorrow.

This week, I'm giving away crime novels by two well-known authors. Alafair Burke's If You Were Here is a standalone about a NYC couple whose marriage is rocked by the sudden reappearance of a friend who disappeared a decade earlier. Journalist McKenna Jordan thinks she can identify a woman who heroically pulled a teenage boy from the subway tracks and then vanished. She thinks it's a good friend who disappeared ten years earlier. But McKenna's husband thinks she's wrong, heading down a path that led to her downfall years earlier. McKenna ends up on a dangerous search.

Maggie Barbieri turns to a darker side of crime fiction with Once Upon a Lie. Maeve Conlon's life is coming apart at the seams. Her new business is barely making it; her aging police cop father is succumbing to Alzheimer's; her ex-husband has moved along with his life. When her cousin Sean is found dead, she's not devastated. But, when the police start poking around asking the family questions, she realizes her father is a suspect. She's determined to clear his name in a thriller about family, justice, and the choices we make.

Which crime novel 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 If You Were Here" or "Win Once Upon a Lie." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The contest will end Thursday, May 1 at 6 PM CT.
