Winners and Mysteries in the 1800s

Congratulations to the winners of the last giveaway. Wendy A. from Ferndale, WA and Lisa G. of Pensacola Beach, FL won the copies of A Tale of Two Kitties. Cat Shining Bright is going to Pauline B. from Rochester, MI. The books will go out today.

This week, I have two mysteries set in the 1800s to give away. Alyssa Maxwell's Murder at Chateau sur Mer is a Gilded Newport mystery. (And, I hadn't read the earlier ones in this series when I read this one, so you don't have to have read earlier ones.) Society reporter Emma Cross, a less well-heeled cousin to the Vanderbilts, occasionally moonlights in solving murders in Newport, Rhode Island. This time, a wealthy woman, the wife of a senator, asks Emma to investigate when a woman is found dead in the senator's mansion.




In The Inheritance by Charles Finch, Charles Lenox receives a plea for help from an old schoolmate, Gerald Leigh, but when he looks into the matter, Leigh has disappeared. As Lenox searches for answers, he faced with confrontations with dangerous East End gangs and the genteel members of the Royal Society.  Lenox must dig deep into the past to find the truth behind bequests made to his friend.

Which book would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Lesa.Holstine@gmail.com. Your subject line should read either "Win Murder at Chateau sur Mer" or "Win The Inheritance." Please include your name and mailing address. The giveaway will end Thursday, Nov. 9 at 6 PM CT. Entries from the U.S. only, please.

Great giveaways! I've read the first couple in the Alyssa Maxwell series on Kindle and would love to get my hands on a print copy of any title.
