It's hard to believe it's that time again--the holidays are here along with the traditional month of Season's Readings giveaways from Killer Characters.
Read and comment, and you'll have a chance to win. Tell me which you like best, contemporary or historical mysteries and why.
One winner will receive a copy of "Smoke and Mirrors," the Miss Barnum mystery by Casey Daniels.
Another winner will get a special treat--an advanced copy of "The Scent of Murder," a new contemporary mystery coming in May.
To help you make up your mind, here's a little about each book:
"Smoke and Mirrors" takes readers back to New York City, 1842, to a place that still sets peoples imaginations soaring--PT Barnum's American Museum. The place is a wonder, five floors filled with wonders, antiquities, and humbugs! Barnum's (fictional) sister, Evie, helps him run the museum and as it opens, an old friend of hers stops by asking for help. Evie has secrets, and she can't risk them coming to light. She tells her friend she can't help him and hurries away. The next time she sees him, he's dead under the display of Barnum's famous Feejee Mermaid. Evie feels responsible and along with some of the "human oddities" who inhabit the museum, she sets out to investigate.
"The Scent of Murder" is the first book of a new contemporary mystery series set in Cleveland's Tremont neighborhood and featuring cadaver dog handler, Jazz Ramsey. When Jazz sets out to train a dog for urban searches, she never imagines she'll end up finding the body of a former student from the school where she works, or that her investigation will bring her face to face with danger, murder, and an old lover.
We'll be choosing winners on Friday, December 7, at 5 and the winners names will be posted. Don't forget to include your email address in your post so we can get in touch with you.
