Winners and Winter Mysteries Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Paige Shelton's If Onions Could Spring Leeks will go to Pauline B. from Rochester, MI. Sandy G. of North Plainfield, NJ won Fran Stewart's A Wee Dose of Death. The books will go out in the mail today.

This week, I'm giving away two mysteries set in winter. Ann Cleeves' Harbour Street is a Vera Stanhope mystery. Inspector Joe Ashworth and his daughter are on a train during the Christmas season. When the train is stalled due to snow, one passenger remains on board, a dead woman. DI Vera Stanhope is pleased to have a case to break up the season. But, when another woman is found dead, Vera suspects the residents of one small neighborhood know more than they're telling.

Maurizio de Giovanni's I Will Have Vengeance: The Winter of Commissario Ricciardi was a finalist for the Crime Writers Association International Dagger Award. Set in Naples, Italy in 1931, under Mussolini, it introduces Ricciardi, a man who has visions. He sees the dead, murder victims, in the last seconds of their lives. But, when the world's greatest tenor is brutally murdered, Ricciardi is a little disturbed. His last seconds seem odd. With the help of an unusual witness, the quiet investigator enters the world of theater to find a killer.

Which winter mystery would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Your subject heading should read either "Win Harbour Street" or "Win I Will Have Vengeance." Please include your name and mailing address. The giveaway will end Thursday, Feb. 11 at 6 PM CT. Entries from the U.S. only, please.

Ah, there are no mysteries like British mysteries, eh? And I'm down with anything set in a theatre world!
