I'm going to be heading to New York City in a week and a half, my favorite city. In fact, I'll be making two trips there in two weeks, one for work and one with family. So, this week, I'm giving a chance to share my experiences, at least through books. I'm giving away two mysteries set in New York.
Once Upon a Grind is Cleo Coyle's most recent Coffeehouse mystery. Don't worry. You can pick up this book even if you haven't read earlier books. Step into the fairy tale world as Clare Cosi and her coffeehouse staff participate in Fairy Tale Week. The city has gone crazy with fairy tales, but the death of a Sleeping Beauty leads Clare into a search for Big Bad Wolves and wicked witches, and an investigation that leads to a Prince Charming Club. Fairy tales, recipes, and a strong heroine with her own cast of supporting characters, all set in New York's magical world. It's one of Coyle's best mysteries.
Or you could explore New York with Gerry Porter and her granddaughter in Margaret Grace's Manhattan in Miniature. They're in New York with a friend, demonstrating their use of miniatures at a craft show. That doesn't mean they don't have time to explore Manhattan, and look into a couple mysteries. It's always wonderful to see the relationship between Gerry and Maddie. And, you'll appreciate their adventures in New York.
Which New York City mystery would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Lesa.Holstine@gmail.com. Your subject line should read either "Win Once Upon a Grind" or "Win Manhattan in Miniature." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The contest will end May 21 at 6 PM CT.
NOTE: This is the last giveaway for a few weeks while I'm out of town. Check back on June 12 for the next contest.
