Winners, and Not So Sweet Home Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last giveaway. Libby D. from Boca Raton, FL won Carola Dunn's Requiem for a Mezzo. Melanie W. from South Huntington, NY won Murder on a Summer's Day. The books are going out today.

Home isn't quite so sweet in this week's giveaways. April Smith brings us a story of America's heartland, involving McCarthyism, a smear campaign, a sensational trial, and, murder. Home Sweet Home is the story of Calvin Kusek's family. The WWII pilot and attorney and his family relocate to a close-knit community in South Dakota in the 1950s. When a seat in the State Assembly opens, Cal wants to repay the community, and he runs, wins the race, and serves three popular terms. But, when he runs for the U.S. Senate, his wife's past comes back to haunt them, and their neighbors turn on them, condemning them as enemies and spies. There's a trial, but years later, there's a murder. Is there a connection to the events years earlier?

Randall Silvis' Two Days Gone is the story of "The perfect family. The perfect house. The perfect life." All destroyed when the wife and children of a beloved college professor are slaughtered in their home. The professor has disappeared, and is considered the primary suspect. Sergeant Ryan DeMarco doesn't think Thomas Huston is guilty, but the man is gone, leaving behind a manuscript with possible clues to the killer.

Not such happy homes, are they? Which book do you want to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Your subject heading should read either "Win Home Sweet Home" or "Win Two Days Gone." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The giveaway will end Thursday, March 2 at 6 PM CT.

Very intriguing! Home Sweet Home, especially so, I think.

Well, you know me, Kaye. Not exactly my type, but that doesn't mean others won't want to read them.
