Gratitude Giveaways Blog Hop

Gratitude Giveaways Blog Hop

As a part of the Gratitude Giveaways Blog Hop, I'm holding a giveaway for your choice of one of the following two books:

book coverA Deadly Penance by Maureen Ash is a historical mystery set in 1203 in England. You can read my review here.

When a member of the retinue of Lady Nicolaa de la Haye's sister is killed on the castle ramparts during a feast, it initially looks like a husband may have discovered the dead man dallying with his wife. But then Lady Nicolaa is told that the dead man fancied himself a bastard of royal blood, and he was determined to find his birth mother to prove his royal parentage. Lady Nicolaa asks Templar knight Bascot de Marins to help her solve the murder.

book coverDangerous Alterations by Elizabeth Lynn Casey is a cozy mystery. You can read my review here.

Tori's philandering ex, Jeff--the man she's vowed to steer clear of--has shown up in Sweet Briar for a funeral and has made it clear that he's ready for another shot with Tori. Then Jeff dies while jogging, apparently from a heart attack. Except the police chief believes it was murder--and that Tori's boyfriend may have been involved. Tori must rely on the emotional support of the ladies from her sewing circle as she pieces together the clues.

This contest is for USA & Canada residents only.

To enter the giveaway:

1) you can twitter me saying "Hi @genrereviewer. Enter me in the giveaway for [give the book name and author's name]."


2) You can leave a comment to this post asking to be entered and naming which book 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. I'd be fun if you also included why you're interested in reading this novel.

This giveaway ends on November 27, 2011 at midnight. The winner will be randomly selected. I'll announce the winner on Nov. 28, 2011 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 or check back to see if you won so you can e-mail me your mailing address. If the winner hasn't responded with a mailing address within four days, I reserve the right to pick a new winner.

I hope everyone has fun with this!
