Midsummer's Eve Giveaway Hop

Midsummer's Eve Giveaway Hop

As a part of the Midsummer's Eve Giveaway Hop, you can enter to win up to four of the novels below. This contest is for USA & Canada residents only.

Note: I haven't read all of these novels, but cozy mysteries tend to be free of sex scenes and gore. They also tend have no to minimal explicit bad language.


book coverFoul Play at the PTA by Laura Alden. Read my review to learn more about this cozy mystery novel.

PTA meetings at Tarver Elementary School can get pretty heated. But after parent Sam Helmstetter is strangled in his car following a meeting, mom and PTA secretary Beth Kennedy and her best friend Marina fear there may be a cold-blooded killer in the group.


book coverA Parfait Murder by Wendy Lyn Watson. Read my review to learn more about this cozy mystery novel.

When Tally's cousin Bree spots her deadbeat ex-husband strolling the Lantana County Fair with a fat wallet and a vixen on his arm, she threatens to file for back child support. But when his lawyer is found dead, things get a little sticky. Did Bree serve up a dish of cold, sweet revenge?


book coverLet's Play Dead by Sheila Connolly.

The new exhibit at the Philadelphia children's museum, Let's Play, isn't meant to be shocking-but when one of the installers is zapped with a fatal electrical charge, it's up to Nell to put her detective skills on display.





book coverThe Square Root of Murder by Ada Madison.

Dr. Sophie Knowles teaches math at Henley College in Massachusetts, but when a colleague turns up dead, it's up to her to find the killer before someone else gets subtracted.





book coverSentenced to Death by Lorna Barrett.

When her friend is killed in a freak accident, Tricia Miles--owner of mystery bookstore Haven't Got a Clue--must use her sleuthing skills to solve a murder mystery that promises to be much more sinister than the books on her shelves.




book coverBooks Can Be Deceiving by Jenn McKinlay.

Lindsey is getting into her groove as the director of the Briar Creek Public Library when a New York editor visits town, creating quite a buzz. Lindsey's friend Beth wants to sell the editor her children's book, but Beth's boyfriend, a famous author, gets in the way. When they go to confront him, he's found murdered--and Beth is the prime suspect.


book coverHow to Moon a Cat by Rebecca M. Hale.

When Rupert the cat sniffs out a dusty green vase with a toy bear inside, his owner has no doubt this is another of her Uncle Oscar's infamous clues to one of his valuable hidden treasures. Eager to put together the pieces of the puzzle, she's soon heading to Nevada City with her two cats, having no idea that this road trip will put her life in danger.



To enter the giveaway:

1) you can twitter me saying "Hi @genrereviewer. Enter me in the giveaway for [fill in the titles of the 1-4 books listed above that you want to win]"

OR

2) You can leave a comment to this post asking to be entered and naming which 1-4 books you'd like to win. Please also leave some way for me to contact you--or follow this blog so you can see the winner announcement.



This giveaway ends June 24th at midnight. The winner will be randomly selected. I'll announce the winner on June 25 on this blog.

If you entered using twitter, I'll send you a @ or DM telling you of your win and asking where to send the book. If you entered using the blog comments, you'll need to leave your e-mail address so I can contact you or check back to see if you won so you can e-mail me your mailing address.
