Winners and "P" = Murder Mystery

Congratulations to the winners of the last giveaway. Lisa W. from Rochester, IN won the copy of Becky Masterman's A Twist of the Knife. Rattlesnake Hill by Leslie Wheeler will go to Sally S. from Antioch, CA. The books will go out in the mail today.

Today, murder mysteries deal with poison and puzzles. I have a copy of Parnell Hall's latest Puzzle Lady mystery, The Purloined Puzzle. Amateur sleuth and crossword expert Cora Felton is asked to solve a puzzle, only to find that it's been stolen, and a murder weapon, a blood-stained knife, is found in its place. And, Cora's least favorite ex-husband is in town pulling a real estate scam. And, he may have purchased the knife.

A Crime of Poison by Nancy Haddock is a Silver Six Crafting mystery. The Silver Six are known for their arts and crafts. Every business along the town square in Lilyvale, Arkansas will benefit from the Fall Folk Art Festival and Bake Sale. That includes Nixy's store run by her and the Silver Six, a group of retirees. But, when a local troublemaker is found dead, two members of the Silver Six are accused of cooking up a murder plot. Nixy and the group don't want their group reduced, so they have to find a killer.

Which mystery would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Your subject line should read either "Win The Purloined Puzzle" or "Win A Crime of Poison." Please include your name and mailing address. The giveaway will end Thursday, April 26 at 5 PM CT. Entries from the U.S. only, please.
