Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Candy K. from Erie, PA won The Silence of the Flans by Laura Bradford. Celia F. from Aspen, CO won Susan Wittig Albert's Blood Orange. The books will go out in the mail today.
This week, we're going to England as the setting of the mysteries.
It's getting closer to the start of WWI in Tessa Arlen's latest Edwardian mystery, A Death by Any Other Name. The elegant Lay Montfort and her pragmatic housekeeper Mrs. Jackson are called on to help a cook who was framed and dismissed for poisoning a guest of the Hyde Rose Society. The pair head to the countryside to investigate after promising to help the cook regain her job and her dignity.
In Pushing Up Daisies by M.C. Beaton, Agatha Raisin teams up with a handsome retired detective to investigate two murders. All the villagers are relieved when a wealthy land developer dies before his plans for a housing estate can go through. They must untangle quite a web when a second murder follows.
