Two Special Giveaways This Week

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Tari H. of Mount Sterling, Ohio will received Scones and Scoundrels. LuAnn B. from Crab Orchard, KY won Scot Free. The books will go out in the mail this weekend.


This week, I have two unusual giveaways. One is a guarantee. Two lucky winners will win autographed copies of Dorothea Benton Frank's latest book, By Invitation Only. I'm giving those away. Details will follow.

The other is for fans of audiobooks, and you have to be quick on this one. June is Audiobook Month. Audiobooks.com is giving away copies of Daniel Cole's Ragdoll. The giveaway begins at 9:00 AM ET TODAY. 500 copies will be given away. Here's where to find the information to login, beginning at 9:00 AM TODAYhttp://bit.ly/2JMWqVF











Here's the description of Ragdoll.

Written By: Daniel Cole          Narrated By: Alex Wyndham

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Date: April 2017

Duration: 10 hours 32 minutes






Summary:

William Fawkes, a controversial detective known as The Wolf, has just been reinstated to his post after he was suspended for assaulting a vindicated suspect. Still under psychological evaluation, Fawkes returns to the force eager for a big case. When his former partner and friend, Detective Emily Baxter, calls him to a crime scene, he’s sure this is it: the body is made of the dismembered parts of six victims, sewn together like a puppet—a corpse that becomes known as “The Ragdoll.”

Fawkes istasked with identifying the six victims, but that gets dicey when his reporter ex-wife anonymously receives photographs from the crime scene, along with a list of six names, and the dates on which the Ragdoll Killer plans to murder them.

The final name on the list is Fawkes.

Baxter and her trainee partner, Alex Edmunds, hone in on figuring out what links the victims together before the killer strikes again. But for Fawkes, seeing his name on the list sparks a dark memory, and he fears that the catalyst for these killings has more to do with him—and his past—than anyone realizes.

With a breakneck pace, a twisty plot, and a wicked sense of humor, Ragdoll announces the arrival of the hottest new brand in crime fiction.

It's up to you to take care of your entry for Ragdoll. Now, let me tell you about By Invitation Only. Dorothea Benton Frank described it as a story of two families whose children are getting married. One is a family of "haves" from Chicago. The other is a family of "have-nots" from the South Carolina Lowcountry, a family of peach farmers. But, who really has everything they could want, and who doesn't?
I bought two hardcovers of By Invitation Only, had them signed, and I'm giving them away. For this one, you contact me at Lesa.Holstine@gmail.com. Your subject line should read "Win By Invitation Only." Please include your name and mailing address. (I've had a couple people forget to include their mailing address lately. You can't win if I can't send you the book.) This giveaway will end Thursday, June 21 at 5 PM CT.  Entries from the U.S. only, please.

Good luck!
