Winners and Coffee, Tea, and... Tarts?

Congratulations to the winners of the last giveaway. Gail A. from Tulsa, OK won Collared. Jamie R. from Denver, NC will receive Fade to Black. I put the books in the mail on Thursday.

This week, I'm giving away three cozy/semi-cozy mysteries. Cleo Coyle's Coffeehouse Mystery, Dead Cold Brew is not what I would call cozy. Coffeehouse manager Clare Cost is finally engaged to her NYPD detective boyfriend. But, the jeweler who designed Claire's ring is poisoned, and a lawyer shows up with a strange bequest, a hidden treasure, for Claire's daughter. And, both events appear to be connected to a cold case murder.

Tea means Laura Childs' Pekoe Most Poison. Indigo Tea Shop owner Theodora Browning attends a rat tea hosted my Doreen Briggs, one of Charleston's prominent hostesses. The parties go back to the early twentieth century when the cream of society would sponsor rat teas to promote city rodent control and better public health. But, when Doreen's husband drops dead, and appears to be poisoned, Doreen hires Theo to find a killer.

Denise Swanson launches a new series with Tart of Darkness. Dani Sloan inherits a beautiful old mansion, and finally starts her dream catering company, Chef-to-Go. But the death of a popular student soon after Dani caters a party at her house means Dani and her college-aged renters have to find a killer or watch Dani's business go up in flames.

Which mystery would you like to win? You can enter to win all of them, but I need separate entries.
