Winners & Lies and Lies GiveawayT

Congratulations to the winners of the last giveaway. The copies of Bark of Night will go to Margie H. from Lansdowne, PA and Susan B. of Seattle, WA. Tiffany C. from Dallas, GA won The Scent of Murder. The books will go out in the mail today.

Before the giveaway, just a heads up. There will be no giveaway next Friday because of my schedule the following week. There will be a review of a terrific book, though. So, don't forget to come back next Friday even if it's not for a contest.

This week, I'm giving away two mysteries about lies. Sara Lovestam's book is The Truth Behind the Lie, and believe me, you won't guess all the lies. When a six year old girl disappears, and calling the police isn't an option, a desperate mother calls for help. She answers an online ad for a private investigator. The ad reads, "Need help, but can't contact the police?" An undocumented Iranian refugee risks deportation and danger to become a private investigator in Stockholm in order to make ends meet. Both the detective and the frantic woman have secrets in this book.

Or maybe you'll win Jo Baker's The Body Lies. The psychological suspense novel features a young writer who accepts a job at a university in a remote area of England, to escape the scene of a violent assault she's desperate to forget. But, one of her students starts turning in chapters that blur the lines between fiction and reality. The professor recognizes herself as the main character in his book - and he has written her a horrific fate. Will she be able to stop life imitating art before it's too late?

Which book of lies do you want to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Your subject heading should read either "Win The Truth Behind the Lie" or "Win The Body Lies." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only please. The contest will end Thursday, Sept. 5 at 5 PM CT.
