Winners and a "Give Me a C" Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Willetta H. of Dearborn, MI won Larry D. Sweazy's Where I Can See You. Adrian McKinty's Police at the Station and They Don't Look Friendly will go to Donna W. of Sun City West, AZ. The books are going out in the mail today.

This week, I have Advanced Readers' Copies (ARCs) of two books with authors whose name begins with "C". Cold Earth is the seventh Shetland Island book by Ann Cleeves. In the dark days of a Shetland winter, a torrential rain triggers a landslide. Jimmy Perez watches the mud and water destroy a house in its path. But, inside the house is a body of a woman. And, Perez becomes obsessed with discovering her identity.

Julia Chapman's Date with Death is not a cozy mystery, no matter what the cover looks like. It's the first Dales Detective mystery. Samson O'Brien's hometown doesn't exactly welcome him back when he opens a detective agency. And, Delilah Metcalfe probably gave him the worst welcome, until she learned murder victims had also been clients at her Dales Dating Agency. Then, she hires Samson to find a killer, and save her business.

Which mystery would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Your subject heading should read either "Win A Date with Death" or "Win Cold Earth." (Sounds a little morbid, doesn't it?) Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The giveaway will end Thursday, June 29 at 6 PM CT.

Lesa, It seems like I have been waiting forever for a new book by Ann Cleeves. So glad to read about this one coming out. I especially enjoy her books, because her stories take place in areas perfect for the characters and settings. Very mysterious!

You probably have been waiting forever for a new one in this series, Reine. The last one I saw was in the Vera Stanhope series.

Yes, it was the Vera Stanhope series. I enjoyed watching the TV versions too. Called Vera?

You're right, Reine. Vera.
