Winners and America in the Past Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contests. Charlotte W. of Covington, GA won the ebook of Lucky Catch. The autographed copies of Josie Belle's Marked Down for Murder will go to Kimberly W. of Springdale, AR, Linda L. of Lufkin, TX, Brandi A. of Fremont, CA, and Jeanette G. of Cleveland, TN. The books will go out today.

This week, I have two mysteries set in America's past. Donis Casey takes readers to Arizona in 1916 in The Wrong Hill to Die On. Alafair and Shaw Tucker traveled there from Oklahoma, hoping their young daughter would recover from her lung ailment. But, they found a lot wrong when they arrived there. Alafair's sister is having marriage problems. Tensions are high between the Anglo and Latino communities following Pancho Villa's recent raid in New Mexico. And, then Alafair finds a Mexican American man dead in a ditch, murdered.


Eleanor Kuhns takes readers even further back in Cradle to Grave. Will Rees is adjusting to life on his Maine farm in 1797, but he's already hungering for the freedom of the road. But, a letter from an old friend in Mount Unity, New York sends him there, where a friend in a Shaker community is is trouble for kidnapping five children, claiming their mother is unfit. By the time Rees realizes he can't do anything, he receives worse news. The mother has been found murdered, and Rees' friend is the prime suspect.

So, Arizona in 1916 or New York in 1797? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Lesa.Holstine@gmail.com. The subject heading should read either "Win The Wrong Hill to Die On" or "Win Cradle to Grave." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The contest will end Thursday, Sept. 4 at 6 PM CT.
