Winners & A South Central Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Sandy O. of Milford, OH won Bel, Book and Scandal. Diane Kelly's Death, Taxes, and a Shotgun Wedding will go to Natalie S. from Hyde Park, MA. The books will go out today.

Let's head to the South Central section of the U.S. for this week's giveaway. The first book I'm giving away is Doris Casey's latest Alafair Tucker mystery, Forty Dead Men, set in Oklahoma. Alafair's son, Gee Dub, has returned from World War I, but he's not exactly the same young man who left. When Gee Dub finds a young woman crossing their property in the rain, he has her mother offer her shelter. Then, he becomes caught up in Holly's story of marrying a soldier before he left for war. When Holly's husband is found shot to death, Gee Dub is a suspect. But, Alafair will always fight for one of her children, especially one who is suffering.



Or, you could travel to Jarrett Creek, Texas with Terry Shames' Samuel Craddock mystery, A Reckoning in the Back Country. It's Thanksgiving, and many of Sheriff Craddock's staff is not available when a doctor goes missing, and is then found murdered. Craddock's investigation is hindered by his unfamiliarity with the man and his family, and the local residents who are keeping secrets. Craddock juggles rumors of dogfighting, his murder investigation, and even a possible romance.





Oklahoma or Texas? That's all you need to say in your subject line to enter either giveaway. I do need separate entries. Email me at Lesa.Holstine@gmail.com with subject lines that read either "Win Oklahoma" or "Win Texas." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The giveaway ends Thursday, March 29 at 5 PM CT.
