This week, I'm giving away two mysteries related to books. Death at the Door is one of Carolyn Hart's Death of Demand mysteries. Annie Darling, owner of the mystery bookstore Death on Demand, is part of the Broward's Rock community. She's as shaken as everyone else when a beloved doctor appears to have committed suicide. And, then a woman is murdered, and her artist husband is arrested. But, the doctor's sister, convinced her brother did not commit suicide, brings Annie and Max a sketch that links her brother with the murdered woman. Now, Max and Annie are looking for a killer who might have framed the artist.
Lucy Arlington's Novel Idea series has become one of my favorites. It features Lila Wilkins, literary agent "and murder magnet". In Played by the Book, the owner of the Novel Idea Literary Agency is thrilled to host the former local boy and TV show host who is launching his new gardening book. Lila isn't thrilled that her garden is now part of the local garden show and she has to plan a book launch gala. She's even less thrilled when she tries to work on her garden and finds a skull buried in her flower beds. Her discovery leads to other hidden secrets in town, and to murder.
