Winners and A Favorite Author Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Austin C. from Evansville, IN won Eleanor Kuhns' Cradle to Grave. Patricia R. of Kansas City, KS won Donis Casey's The Wrong Hill to Die On. The books will go out today.

I have some terrific giveaways coming up in September! This week, I'm giving away two books by one of my favorite mystery authors, Linda Castillo. If you haven't yet discovered the world of Kate Burkholder, Police Chief in Painter's Mill, Ohio, you're in for a thrill. And, I did say thrill. These are not cozy mysteries set in Amish country. These are gritty thrillers involving a police chief with a past, and an FBI agent with his own troubled history. Wonderful books!

So, I have a copy of Her Last Breath, now out in trade paperback. It's the story of an Amish family thrown from heir buggy after a hit-and-run. But, the deaths of the father and two children turn out to be more than a hit-and-run as Kate Burkholder investigates. And, the widow? Kate's best friend from childhood.

I also have an ARC of The Dead Will Tell, a fascinating story of a cold case still haunting people years later. In 1979, an Amish father and his four children died in a robbery attempt that went terribly wrong. His wife disappeared, leaving only a fourteen-year-old survivor. Now, in 2014, there are only a few that know the terrible secrets of that night. Now, one by one, they're turning up dead.

Which book would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Your subject line should read either "Win Her Last Breath" or "Win The Dead Will Tell." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The contest will end Thursday, Sept. 11 at 6 p.m. CT.

I discovered Linda Castillo with her first book in this series and wait impatiently every year for the next one! If you have not discovered her, you should. Well written and engaging from first to last page.
