Winners and an Ice, Ice Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last giveaway. Charlotte W. from Covington, GA won The Moth Catcher. The Long Call goes to Lauren K. from Reading, MA. The books are going out in the mail today.

Temperatures dropped today here from our 90s, and that will probably be it until next summer. And, places such as Montana already have snow. In recognition of that winter weather I hate, I'm giving away books with ice in the title.

Fortunately, one of them is Iced in Paradise, the first in Naomi Hirahara's new series set in Hawaii.
Leilani Santiago returns home from Seattle after her mother is diagnosed with MS. She wants to help with the family, and with the family business, a shave ice shack. She ends up helping with a murder investigation when her father's surfing protege is murdered, and her father is the primary suspect.

From Hawaii, we move to Minnesota, where the winter ice really is a factor in P.J. Tracy's Monkeewrench novel, Ice Cold Heart. When Detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth are called to a murder scene, they find a woman dead in her friend's vacant house. However, the woman's husband had no ideas she had a dangerous secret life. It's a tough case, but Roadrunner from the Monkeewrench team rescues a frozen woman who just might have the key to the wide-reaching case.

Which icy book would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Your subject heading should read either "Win Iced in Paradise" or "Win Ice Cold Heart." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The giveaway will end Thursday, October 10 at 5 PM CT.

Lesa, we had the crazy weather too. A record 93 on Wednesday followed by a drop to 53 on Thursday! And I agree with you on winter weather. AS long as I don't fall again (nyuk), we will be in Florida for almost all of January through March of 2020.

I don't blame you one bit, Jeff. Good luck! I hope you get to Florida for the winter. (Arizona would be my refuge. I've lived both places.) Yes, it was 59 here when I got up this morning.
