Winners and Sharing the Blues

Congratulations to the winners of the last giveaway. Penny T. from Klamath Falls, OR will receive A Funeral in Mantova. An Aegean April goes to Lisa B. from Camino, CA. The books are going out in the mail today.

If you check out the covers of both of this week's books, they're blue. One even has "Blues" in the title. Jane K. Cleland's Antique Blues features amateur sleuth and antiques expert Josie Prescott. Josie's friend, Mo, asks her to appraise a newly purchased rare Japanese woodblock print, and Mo's dad asks her to appraise his vintage Martin guitar. Then Mo is murdered. As always in this series, Josie works with friends, and the police, to find the killer.

Julia Chapman's Date with Malice is a Samson and Delilah mystery set in the Yorkshire Dales. One of the seniors from the local retirement home makes an appointment at the Dales Detective Agency to tell Samson O'Brien that someone is trying to hill her. Samson doesn't believe her, until a death and several incidents at the home finally makes him think she's right. He teams up with his landlord, Delilah Metcalfe, to infiltrate that community, and the local one, to find a killer.

Which "blue" mystery would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Because there won't be any contest the following week, I'm giving away 2 copies of each book this week. Email me at Your subject heading should read either "Win Antique Blues" or "Win Date with Malice." Please include your name and mailing address. The giveaway will end Thursday, May 10 at 5 PM CT. Entries from the U.S. only, please.
