Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Eileen K. from Island Lake, IL won The Gates of Evangeline. Heart of Stone will go to Daniel M. from Weymouth, MA. The books will go out in the mail today.
This week, I'm giving away two cozy mysteries. The Silence of the Flans is the second Emergency Dessert Squad mystery by Laura Bradford. Baker Winnie Johnson is owner of the Emergency Dessert Squad, a woman with a soft spot for lost causes. So when her business professor boyfriend, Jay, says one of his students is about to fail, Winnie offers to let her get extra credit by helping with her own business. But, when the first dessert the student delivers poisons a student journalist, the publicity could lead to failure of Winnie's business.
Blood Orange by Susan Wittig Albert finds China Bayles helping a nurse who ends up critically injured. China rented her guest cottage to Kelly Kaufman, a nurse employed by a local hospice. Kelly has discovered instances of suspicious practices, and believes that a patient has been murdered. Then, she's forced off the road and critically injured on the way to China's house. China owes it to her friend to uncover the truth.
