Winners & A Cozy Debut Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Ellen I. from Lakeland, FL won P.J. Brackston's Once Upon a Crime. Margie B. from San Jose, CA will receive Alafair Burke's The Ex. I'll put the books in the mail today.

With the state of the cozy publishing world, I thought I'd give away two debut cozies this week. Kathleen Bridge introduces the first Hamptons Home & Garden Mystery, Better Homes and Corpses. Meg Barrett's new interior design business involves her in detecting when "the Queen Mother of the Hamptons" is murdered. While she helps a friend inventory the estate, Meg discovers the Spenser family has been hiding dangerous secrets. And, the killer is determined to keep Meg from discovering the ultimate secret, whodunnit.

Or, you could win Peg Cochran's Berried Secrets. Monica comes to Cranberry Cove to help her half brother, Jeff, on his cranberry farm, but she never expects to harvest a dead body. It seems that Sam Culbert, who ran the farm while Jeff was deployed overseas, has some juicy secrets that would be fatal, and Jeff is the perfect suspect. Monica has her hands full trying to save the farm while she searches for the killer.

This week, you have the chance to discover a new mystery series. Which one would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Your subject line should read either "Win Better Homes and Corpses" or "Win Berried Secrets." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. Due to my schedule next week, this giveaway will end Wednesday, March 23 at 6 PM CT.
