Book Giveaway - Grab Bag

* * * * * If you have enjoyed this blog, then PRETTY PLEASE vote for this blog as best Entertainment Blog (proving reading is entertainment) and also as best Hobby Blog. Thank you most sincerely. There are voting buttons on the sidebar too. You will have to register with Blogger's Choice, but it is a simple process. I am listed under * * * * *

Winners for the giveaway of A TOAST TO MURDER are Stacey, Rae Reads and Laura Ann Dunks.  You should have received an email requesting your mailing address, if not please contact me.  CONGRATULATIONS.  Check out the new book giveaway.  I am so behind on my reading - so you benefit!

I am giving away a grab bag of 3 books that the publisher has sent to me and I probably won't get to them.  BUT a condition is that you PLEASE do a guest review of the book you receive to be posted on this blog - since the publisher sent these to be reviewed.   You may also post on your own blog as well.  Your post on this blog will give you credit as the guest reviewer and link to your blog as well.  There are three individual books to be given away to three winners.  These are advanced reading copies (ARC), so they don't have the full color covers.

FARM FRESH MURDER (A Farmer's Market Mystery) by Paige Shelton

First in the Farmer's Market Mystery Series.   Becca Robins leads a simple life, making jams and preserves on her very own farm. But when there's a murder in her quaint little town, she puts herself in the line of fire to defend her friend's innocence-and goes from making jam to being in one.

'TIL DICE DO US PART (A Bunco Babes Mystery) by Gail Oust
The Bunco Babes are a group of hip retirees who love to play bunco- an addictive game of luck.   But someone's luck is about to run out... For good.

When Claudia Connors returns from Vegas with a new husband, actor Lance Ledeaux, Kate McCall and the other Bunco Babes are shocked. To make matters worse, Lance has plans to direct, produce, and star in a play he has written-and he wants all the Babes to participate.

When he's killed during rehearsal with a pistol, all eyes are on Claudia, who is literally holding the smoking gun. Anyone could have loaded the real bullets, but its up to Kate to prove Claudia's innocence-or her newly widowed friend will be throwing dice behind bars.
MURDER OF A WEDDING BELLE (A Scumble River Mystery) by Denise Swanson

School psychologist Skye Denison reluctantly agrees to act as maid of honor in her California cousin's over-the-top platinum-style wedding- and is also expected to assist the control-freak wedding planner. But when Skye discovers the planner dead, just one week before the big event, Skye is suddenly working double-duty.

While overseeing every nuptial detail, she's also helping the police find out who hated the bridal consultant enough to kill her. Can Skye get her cousin to the church on time-and save herself from a killer who may actually be on the guest list?

Oh fantastic Ariel! I just realised during the weekend that I don't read as many mysteries as I would like to. These sound interesting, I would especially love to read the 1st and 3rd. (how cool and unconventional does the 1st sound? I'll definitely check out this series, sounds like a fun one).

The first one, A Farm Fresh Murder appears to be setup as a cozy mystery with a rather traditional approach of a certain number of suspects to scrutinize as the murderer. Just my initial thoughts. It is the only one that I know of with this exact premise though.
