Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. This week, both books are going to Missouri. Joyce K. from Farmington will receive Murder Ties the Knot. Mary H. of St. Louis won Extra Sensory Deception. The books will go out in the mail today.
Would you like to win a mystery set in England? These two books are marked by wit and humor. If you haven't yet discovered Deanna Raybourn's Veronica Speedwell, you'll want to win A Curious Beginning. Fans of Elizabeth Peters' books will find the young woman delightful as she teams up with Stoker, a reclusive natural historian to discover who tried to abduct her. Together, they go on the run, while they search for a killer.
Most of you probably know Rhys Bowen's Royal Spyness mysteries. I have a hardcover of Malice at the Palace in which Lady Georgiana is asked to be the companion for Prince George's future wife. But her assignment grows complicated when she finds a dead woman at the palace, a society beauty said to have been one of Prince George's mistresses. (If you've already read it, you might want to win it and give it as a gift.)
