Winners and English Murder Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last giveaway. Austin C. from Evansville, IN and Julia H. from Excelsior, MN won the copies of Charlaine Harris' Midnight Crossroad. The publicist will be sending out the books.

This week, I'm giving away two mysteries set in England. Ashley Weaver's Murder at Brightwell is an Edgar nominee for Best First Novel. It's set in the 1930s. Amory Ames is feeling neglected by her husband, so the wealthy woman agrees to go to a seaside resort with her former fiance, Gil, hoping to persuade his sister not to marry an unpleasant character. When the shifty suitor ends up dead, Gil becomes the primary suspect. And, then Amory's husband shows up, amused by it all.

Or, you could travel back to 1876 with Charles Finch's character, Charles Lenox in The Laws of Murder. Lenox has given up his seat in Parliament to return to his first love, detection. As the months pass, he's not finding work in his new detective agency. But, the death of a friend, a member of Scotland Yard, brings Lenox back into the field where he finds himself in danger.

Which mystery 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 Murder at Brightwell" or "Win The Laws of Murder." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The giveaway will end next Thursday, March 26 at 6 PM CT.

Hi, Lesa. I'm going to enter the drawing for the Charles Finch book, but I just wanted to say that I found Murder at Brightwell delightful. I must admit I was drawn in by the cover when I saw the book in the book store and the library, but the story turned out to be interesting and fun, and I can't wait for Ashley Weaver's next book.

Margie, It's one of the books on my pile right now. I haven't had a chance to get into Murder at Brightwell yet. Thanks for your comment about it!

They both look great, Lesa. I entered for Brightwell based on the cover, Margie, but am interested in reading Lenox also. These are two of my favorite periods.

I believe I left my last comment about Brightwell in the wrong spot. Sorry. As I was saying.... hehe I have just recently found all of these English stories to be so great and hope to read many more of them. This cover is so inviting and I wish I had a red and white hat like that for this summer too.

I would love to be considered for a copy of this book. Thank you so much.

Love your blog. Keep up the great work.

I just finished Murder at Brightwell. I really enjoyed it. I thought it was clever and well-written.

Trisha, I have it on my TBR pile, and I've read four chapters, but other books and deadlines keep getting in the way.
