We’re Thankful - Season's Readings Book Giveaway




by Janet Marsh
from the Highland Bookshop Mysteries by Molly MacRae













Dear Readers,

For cozy houses,


warm kitchens,


friends old and new,


For family, pets, and stories, too,
we're thankful, 
and wish a heartfelt 
Season's Readings to you!

From Inversgail, Scotland, to wherever you are – if you’re sitting down to a feast this Thanksgiving or if you’re filling plates in a serving line to make sure others have a warm meal, if you’re traveling or if you’re far from home and those you love – we thank you for being readers and for spreading the joy of books. 

With all our love, Janet Marsh, Christine Robertson, Tallie Marsh, Summer Jacobs, Rab MacGregor, and Norman Hobbs.

To help you celebrate, we’re giving away two signed copies of Scones and Scoundrels, the second book in our new Highland Bookshop Mystery series. Leave a comment below with your email address before midnight eastern on Saturday November 25th for a chance to win a signed copy! (Sorry, USA and Canada only)

Scones and Scoundrels, book 2 in the Highland Bookshop Mysteries, comes out January 2, 2018, and is available for pre-order now wherever books are sold.

Molly MacRae is also the author of the award-winning, national bestselling Haunted Yarn Shop Mysteries.  Visit Molly on Facebook and Pinterest, connect with her on Twitter @mysteryMacRae, or find her the first Monday of each month at Amy Alessio’s Vintage Cookbooks and Crafts

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Dianne! If you have a public library, check there for the Highland Bookshop Mystery series. If they don't have the books (Scones and Scoundrels, book 2, isn't out until January), and if they take suggestions for additions to the collection, put in a request. Then you can read them and so can others!

    1. Thanks for stopping by and for sharing, Kay! If you have a public library, stop in and see if it has the Highland Bookshop Mystery series (Scones and Scoundrels, book 2, isn't out until January). If the library doesn't have the books, see if they take suggestions for additions to the collection, then ask for the books. That way you can read them and so can others. Libraries are great places! :)

    1. You'll love Scotland! May and October are especially lovely, but I would go any month at all. As long as you're prepared for rain (stopping in a bookshop or tea shop are good options), then you'll be all set. The daffodils in March are glorious!
