Winners and Popular Title Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the copies of Ann Cleeves' The Moth Catcher. The copies are going to Angela L. from Murphy, TX and David C. from Berrien Springs, MI. The books are going out in the mail today.

This week, I have two titles that have been popular lately. One is a psychological thriller, while the second one is historical fiction with tension and suspense. The first title is Ruth Ware's The Woman in Cabin 10. Lo Blacklock, a journalist, has been given the assignment of a lifetime, a week on a luxury cruse with only a small number of passengers. When she witnesses a woman being thrown over, no one believes her. All passengers are accounted for. It's only the start of Lo's nightmare.





The other title is one of the current hot books. Paulette Jiles' News of the World is a finalist for the National Book Award. The back jacket of the ARC refers to it as a "morally complex, multilayered novel of historical fiction that explores the boundaries of family, responsibility, honor, and trust". After the Civil War, seventy-year-old retired Army Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd travels northern Texas reading the news from Eastern and European newspapers to paying audiences. Then, he's paid to take ten-year-old Johanna home to relatives. She was kidnapped after a raid by Kiowas, and lived with them for four years. She no longer speaks English, and she longs to return to her Kiowa family. The Captain and Johanna have a difficult journey on the way to Johanna's family, and they learn from each other along the way.

Which title 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 The Woman in Cabin 10" or "Win News of the World." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The giveaway will end Thursday, Oct. 27 at 6 PM CT.
