Giveaway - The British Connection

I'm kicking off this week's giveaway this morning instead of on Friday. I have a review scheduled for Friday, a book I loved, so the contest starts one day early. I'll still be ending last week's at 6 PM tonight, so I'll announce the winners this evening.

In the meantime, let's head off to England as the setting for two mysteries. The Revenant of Thraxton Hall by Vaughn Entwistle is from "The Paranormal Casebooks of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle". Doyle has just killed off Sherlock Holmes, and is now one of the most hated men in London. When a medium asks him to investigate a murder, he jumps at the chance to leave the city. But, Hope Thraxton has foreseen her own death at a meeting of the Society for Psychical Research. Oscar Wilde accompanies his friend, Doyle, as the two participate in seances, and consider the possible motives. And, the time gets closer for Hope Thraxton's murder.

Carola Dunn takes us back to 1920s England in the Daisy Dalrymple mystery, Heirs of the Body. In anticipation of Lord Dalrymple's 50th birthday, he decides to interview four would-be heirs to the viscountcy at Fairacres. Daisy, eager to help her cousin, agrees to act as the family representative at the interviews with the claimants. But, when one of the four potential claimants dies suddenly, murder is on everyone's mind.

Which mystery would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I'll need separate entries. Email me at I want to make this easy for you, and it wouldn't be easy to type The Revenant of Thraxton Hall. So, your subject heading should read either "Win Entwhistle" or "Win Dunn." Please include your name and mailing address. The giveaway will end Thursday, May 14 at 6 PM CT. Entries from the U.S. only, please.

Ooooh. I have read a few Daisy Dalrymple. But I am also a fan of Sherlock Holmes. Did you ever read "The Sherlokians"? Excellent book.

I haven't even heard of "The Sherlokians", Gayle. I'll have to look for it.
