Book Lover's Holiday Hop

Book Lover's Holiday Hop

As a part of the Book Lover's Holiday Hop, I'm holding a giveaway for your choice of one of the following two books:

book coverHickory Smoked Homicide by Riley Adams is a cozy mystery. You can read my review here.

No one likes Tristan Pembroke, a snooty beauty pageant coach with a mean streak longer than the line outside Aunt Pat's barbeque restaurant--family run and located in the heart of Memphis, Tennessee. When Lulu finds Tristan's body during a crowded art auction fundraiser, the police suspect Lulu's daughter-in-law who publicly had a huge fight with Tristan over trying to sell a portrait of Tristan that Tristan had refused to pay for. Though a lot of people showed up at that fundraiser who hated Tristan, the police are having as much trouble as Lulu in tracking down who had the opportunity.

book coverAnd a second chance to win:

A 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.

This contest is for USA & Canada residents only.
