Congratulations to the winners of the last contests. Hester Young's debut, The Gates of Evangeline, will go to Debbie K. from Cypress, TX and Carol M. of Monroeville, PA. A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourne will go to Allison F. of Haverhill, MA. The publishers are sending all the books.
I'm giving away this week's books, cozy mysteries involving food. Fudging the Books is the latest Cookbook Nook mystery by Daryl Wood Gerber. Jenna Hart is celebrating for two reasons at her California bookstore. It's Pirate Week, and, even better, the local Chocolate Cookbook Club is hosting a candy maker and author. But, when the author's editor ends up dead, Jenna sets out to stir up the answers.
Or, you might prefer Victoria Hamilton's Death of an English Muffin. Merry Wynter needs the money to keep and try and restore Wynter Castle, so she takes in some tenants who want to live in a real castle. Too bad they can be nasty, which is why she calls them "The Legion of Horrible Ladies". But, when one of the ladies is murdered, Merry needs to find the killer because she and the castle are getting a reputation for violent deaths.
Which 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 heading should read either "Win Fudging the Books" or "Win Death of an English Muffin." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The contest will end Thursday, Sept. 17 at 6 PM CT.
