Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop

Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop

As a part of the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop, I'm holding a giveaway for your choice of one of the following books:


book coverSince there was so much interest in this book in the last hop, here's a second chance at...

Grace Among Thieves by Julie Hyzy is a cozy mystery. You can read my review.

As curator and manager of the Marshfield Manor, Grace Wheaton is delighted to be part of the estate’s magnificent history, but no one told her solving murder was in her job description…

When Grace’s former professor calls to warn her that there have been a rash of thefts at various historical sites, Grace isn’t surprised—because Marshfield Manor has been targeted, too. She wonders if it has something to do with the film crew roaming the grounds, digitally immortalizing the manor, but then she gets distracted by an incident much more dire: the shooting of one guest and the murder of another.



book coverMistress of Mourning by Karen Harper is a historical novel. I have not yet had a chance to read and review this book, but I've reviewed a previous book by this author and it was "clean" of explicit bad language and sex scenes.

London, 1501. In a time of political unrest, Varina Westcott, a young widow and candle maker for court and church, agrees to perform a clandestine service for Queen Elizabeth of York, wife of Henry VII. The queen’s eldest child and heir to the throne, newly married Prince Arthur, has died suddenly under mysterious circumstances. Elizabeth wants Varina and royal aid Nicholas Sutton to travel into the Welsh wilderness to investigate the death. But as the couple unearths one unsettling clue after another, they begin to fear that the conspiracy they’re confronting is far more ambitious and treacherous than even the queen imagined.

Hi Debbie,

I won the last contest you hosted, and I think it's only fair to let some others benefit from your immense generosity, so I'm not entering the giveaway. But I just wanted to come by and say hello, and thank you for being part of this hop, and for being so very generous! :D

Have a wonderful day, dear...
