A December of Give-Aways: #1 A Deadly Grind



 You probably all know by now that I'm just a little high-strung. (Ya think!)  I discovered a book genre some call "cozy" mysteries.  They all have a hook into something that interests me, like junk, buttons, crafts, etc. I enjoyed these books so much I decided to pass that relaxation along.  We could all use a little relaxation during the holidays!  I will be announcing a winner  and posting a new book give-away each weekend from now until Christmas. 
Each book give-away includes a handmade bookmark plus a few goodies that go along with the theme of the book.  A Deadly Grind includes a vintage 1/4 cup measuring scoop and 8-1/2' vintage shelf paper.
The give-aways are open to anyone in the continental United States.  All you need to do to enter is leave a comment on this post - that's it!  If the book doesn't suit your taste then please spread the word to your friends who might like it.
In case you are wondering what A Deadly Grind is about, click this picture bigger and you can read the back cover.  Don't you wonder who done it?  I'll never tell!

I LOVE these kind of cozy mysteries, but I've never seen any about junk. Must get to the store! Please enter me in the drawing (although I have never heard of number 1 being picked!)

I enjoy "cozy mysteries," too. I have been reading the Jane Wheel Series by Sharon Fiffer and the Josie Prescott Antiques Mysteries by Jane Cleland. I would love to be entered in your drawing. Thanks much.

Cozies are my favorite, too! This book is a new one on me, but I feel like it has my name written all over it. What an awesome idea for a giveaway!

Oh how fun Kathy! A book plus goodies, I can't think of a better giveaway! I didn't know they were called cozy mysteries, but I've read most of the books in the Tea Shop series by Laura Childs.

Kathy,
What a great idea! and such lovely extras... I've read almost all of the Diane Mott Davidson mysteries...Have a great day!

Maggie said...

how clever to have this great giveaway with themed 'extras' thrown in--wow, count me in! I love these craft-centric books.

I was catching up on your posts this morning, and cracked up at the vintage 70's crocheted fashions! I was a senior '72 girl myself, and these brought back memories to groan over. I wore a hot pants/longer-skirt-over combo under my graduation gown! egads.

Love mysteries but had not heard of "cozy" mysteries. How could I resist this giveaway?

Blessed Serendipity said...

Oh my gosh I need to know who did it and why now. Leave it to you to find mysteries with a junk theme. I love mysteries, I love junk, and I would LOVE to enter your giveaway. I love how you tied the other cuties into the theme of the book - so clever!
