Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Bill K. from Mesa, AZ won the copy of Ann Cleeves' Cold Earth. Nancy H. from Deephaven, MN will receive A Date with Death. The books will go out in the mail today.
This week, I'm giving away mysteries involving journalists. These are both Advanced Readers' Copies, ARCs. Even if you haven't read Howard Owen's earlier books, you can read The Devil's Triangle. Willie Black, a night police reporter, is on the scene when a twin-engine Beechcraft crashes into one of Richmond's bars during Happy Hour. Because one of the victims was the present husband of Willie's ex-wife, he's particularly interested in the investigation.
Jill Orr's The Good Byline is a debut mystery. Riley Ellison, a quirky young library assistant, is trying to change her life, joining an online dating service and contacting old friends. She learns her childhood best friend, a journalist, just committed suicide, and Jordan's mother asks her to write the obituary. But, one of Jordan's co-workers at the newspaper convinces Riley that Jordan would not have killed herself, and the two embark on a wacky crusade to find the truth. It's an entertaining debut.
Humor or drama? You can enter to win both mysteries, but I need separate entries. Email me at Lesa.Holstine@gmail.com. Your subject heading should read either "Win The Devil's Triangle" or "Win The Good Byline." Please include your name and mailing address. The giveaway will end Thursday, July 6 at 6 PM CT.
