Blog Jog Day

Thank you for stopping by my Blog! 
We celebrate Mystery and Crime fiction here.
If you enjoy a good mystery or suspense book
take a few moments to check out our reviews,
many author interviews, book giveaways, videos and occasional recipes.

Please explore all this Blog has to offer, 
then jog on over to Susan Whitfield's blog

If you would like to visit a different Blog in the jog, 

Today we have two book grab bags to give away!  The book packages includes three (3) books to the winner.

Package #1 includes:

An Uplifting Murder by Elaine Viets
On Josie's latest assignment, her former teacher-now working in a lingerie shop-is in need of some serious support when a customer is found murdered. Unfortunately, the teacher's alibi is flimsier than the camisoles she sells, so Josie will need to bust out her sleuthing skills to expose the real killer.

The Diva Cooks a Goose by Krista Davis

A Scrooge steals presents right from under Sophie Winston's family Christmas tree. Then her sister-in-law's father show's up with a diva girlfriend just a month after his separation. More than one person is thinking of committing a merry murder-until it actually happens! With many under suspicion for the deadly deed, can Sophie find the murderer and restore the Christmas spirit before it's too late?

False Impressions by Terri Thayer

Professional rubber stamper April Buchert is shocked to discover that the brother of one of the Stamping Sisters faked his own death, only to really die in a tragic car accident-that was not an accident at all. Now this heated family drama could cause one cold winter if the killer isn't found.

Package #2 includes:

Dirty Rotten Tendrils by Kate Collins

When high-powered lawyer Ken "the Lip" Lipinski is found dead from a suspicious overdose, florist and amateur sleuth Abby Knight finds it hard to swallow that his opposing counsel-and her old boss-is the murderer. 

 The Pumpkin Muffin Murder by Livia J. Washburn
Phyllis loves to spend quality time with her grandson. She'll be taking him to a festival with hopes of winning the baking contest-now that her friendly competitor, Carolyn, is judging and not competing. But when a decorative scarecrow is actually a dead body in disguise, it's Phyllis's sleuthing skills that are needed.

The dead body is that of the festival's organizer- and his wife, Carolyn's friend, falls under suspicion. Carolyn turns to Phyllis for help, because who's better at dishing out some justice than a baker extraordinaire who can handle the heat.

Murder at the PTA by Laura Alden

After Tarver Elementary School's unpopular principal is murdered, PTA secretary and mother of two Beth Kennedy puts aside bake sales and class trip fund-raisers to catch a killer. And when members of the PTA become suspects, she realizes solving this murder will not be as easy as ABC.

Yay free books! Either package would be great--surprise me! I'm already a follower, but the last time I left my email on a blog I received an amazing (yet terribly misspelled) financial opportunity from Benin.

Hello! I'm here for the Blog Jog. I was away from the computer on Sunday, so I'm catching up today.

I love love love your cartoon graphic for your Siamese kitty. I have a Tabby Point Siamese who is often featured on my blogs. Where did you get that cartoon? Did you have it drawn just for you? Do you mind sharing your source?

Have a great week!

the Siamese kitty mascot I got as a package deal from The Blog Place.

I don't know if they created it special or had a stock of cartoons they pulled from.

Check them out.
