Spooktacular Giveaway Hop

Spooktacular Giveaway Hop

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


book coverThe Tale of Castle Cottage by Susan Wittig Albert is a historical mystery. You can read my review.

Beatrix is eager to marry her fiancĂ©, solicitor William Heelis. But with remodeling work at Castle Cottage, their future home, going at a snail’s pace, Beatrix finds frustration when the building contractor fires his best carpenter, Mr. Adcock, for stealing. At the same time, Will is investigating thefts on other construction sites—an inquiry that comes to a screeching halt when Mr. Adcock is found dead.

Meanwhile, the animals that live in and around the village have a problem of their own: a gang of rats has moved into the neighborhood and is stealing food and valuables from humans and animals alike. Sadly, the cats aren't up to the job of ridding the area of the rats, but something must be done before the rats clean the village out...


book coverMurder in the Rue Dumas by M.L. Longworth is a cozy-like mystery set in France.
You can read my review.

When Dr. Georges Moutte is found murdered, Judge Antoine Verlaque is stumped. Certainly the director of theology at the Universite d'Aix had his enemies. Moutte was just about to name the recipient of an elite fellowship as well as his own successor--a highly coveted position that includes a lavish apartment in a seventeenth-century mansion--when his lips were sealed permanently. Yet Verlaque isn't convinced that any of the academics are capable of murder. Aided by his on-again, off-again girlfriend, law professor Marine Bonnet, Verlaque turns Provence upside down, uncovering a world far more complicated than university politics.


This contest is for USA & Canada residents only.

Thanks for offering mysteries! I took a break and was reading lots of urban fantasy and paranormals, but am back on a mystery kick.

I'd like Murder on the Rue Dumas simply because it's a new series to me, so I'd like to give it a try.
