Winners and Historical Mystery Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of Les Roberts' The Ashtabula Hat Trick. The books were mailed to: Sally S. from Antioch, CA, Harvey D. from Winthrop, ME, Jeannette G. of Benicia, CA and Trish R. of Decatur, GA.

This week, I'm giving away two copies of one of the best historical mysteries I've read in quite some time. Nancy Herriman's No Comfort for the Lost is the first in a series set in San Francisco in the late 1860s. Celia Davies is a nurse, originally from England, who served in the Crimea and the American Civil War. Now in San Francisco, she operates a free clinic for those women who cannot afford other care, or who might not be offered other care. One of those in a Chinese prostitute trying to make a better life. But, before she can do that, she's murdered. And Celia's brother-in-law in a suspect. She teams up with Detective Nicholas Greaves who is willing to look for the killer, despite the opinions of his superiors. It's a search that takes them from Chinatown to the Barbary Coast and the homes of the wealthy and influential. And, it's a terrific mystery.

If you'd like to win a copy of No Comfort for the Lost, email me at Your subject line should read, "Win No Comfort for the Lost." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The giveaway will end Thursday, Sept. 3 at 6 PM CT.

This sounds like a good read. I enjoy this time period, and San Francisco is my stomping grounds.

Thanks for the win of The Ashtabula Hat Trick!
