Winners and a British Isles Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last giveaway. Gwen B. from Chesapeake, Virginia won the Mary Kay Andrews' Ladies' Night gift bag. Both copies of Cassandra King's The Same Sweet Girl's Guide to Life are going to Georgia; one to Trish R. in Decatur, and the other to Karen K. in Marietta.

This week, I'm giving away two mysteries set in the British Isles. I recently reviewed Ann Cleeves' Dead Water set in the Shetland Islands. She told me this is the first in a new trilogy set there. Detective Inspector Willow Reeves arrives to handle a murder case since Inspector Jimmy Perez is still in mourning, coming back to work slowly. But, Jimmy's local knowledge is needed to question the residents about the death of a journalist, a man with a past and a reputation as the spoiled son of wealthy parents.

Or, you could win a book set in Wales, Elizabeth J. Duncan's Never Laugh as a Hearse Goes By. When a clerical conference at Gladstone's Library leads to the murder of the bishop's secretary, DCI Gareth Davies, there to give a talk, ends up leading the investigation. When another body is found, spa owner and amateur sleuth Penny Brannigan, Davies' girlfriend, is drawn into the search for a killer.

So, the Shetland Islands or Wales? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Your subject heading should read either "Win Dead Water" or "Win Never Laugh as a Hearse Goes By." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The contest will end Thursday, May 15 at 6 PM CT.
