Western Mystery Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Eileen K. of Island Lake, IL won Heather Blake's Ghost of a Potion. Carolyn Hart's Ghost Wanted goes to Robin C. of Ashtabula, OH. I'm mailing the books today.

In keeping with the western theme started by the giveaway of Craig Johnson's Wait for Signs, this  week, I'm giving away two mysteries set in Texas featuring small-town lawmen. In Terry Shames' case, Samuel Craddock is actually retired in A Deadly Affair at Bobtail Ridge. He's forced to pry into a friend's secrets when Jenny Sandstone's dying mother reveals that Jenny is in danger. And, when Jenny is injured in a car accident, Craddock sets out to find out why someone wants to threaten her.

Sheriff Dan Rhodes doesn't have an easy job. When he's called in the middle of the night to investigate gunshots at a haunted house, he finds the body of a meth dealer. There's quite a few suspects, but Seepy Benton, the college math professor just seems to complicate the investigation. He'd really like to solve the murder by communing with ghosts, as founder of Clearview Paranormal Investigations. Once again, Bill Crider combines crime and humor in a mystery. This time, it's Between the Living and the Dead.

Which mystery would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Please include your name and mailing address. Your subject headings should read either "Win Shames" or "Win Crider." The giveaway will end Thursday, Nov. 5 at 6 PM CT.
