Winners and a Bibliophile Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Malice at the Palace will go to Nancy H. from Dodgeville, WI. Susan B. from Seattle, WA won A Most Curious Murder. The books will go in the mail tomorrow.

I'm getting ready to write a newspaper column dealing with books about books. That makes it the perfect time to give away hardcover copies of Kate Carlisle's Bibliophile mysteries. If you're not familiar with her books, Brooklyn Wainwright is a book restoration expert. Ripped from the Pages is set in Sonoma where Brooklyn has moved temporarily to her parents' while her apartment is being renovated. The community excavates caves, hoping to use them for their wine business. But, they find a room, treasures including rare books, and a body. And, the treasures reveal secrets about French winemakers who fled the Nazis.



The drawings of John James Audubon are featured in Books of a Feather. When she's at the Covington Library's special exhibit featuring Birds of America, the president of the National Bird-watchers Society asks Brooklyn to repair one of Audubon's lesser known books. When a friend offers her another rare book to restore that same evening, Brooklyn's having a great time. But, the party is ruined when she finds a body in the library.

Which book 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 Ripped from the Pages" or "Win Books of a Feather." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The giveaway will end Thursday, Aug. 25 at 6 PM CT.
