Reader's Choice - Romantic Suspense/Mystery


GIVEAWAY


It's time to help me plan my New Year reading (and future giveaways) by recommending new releases (publication dates January, February or Mach 2018) and you have a chance to win one of the books you recommend! Remember to read all the details before entering!


IT'S ROMANTIC SUSPENSE/MYSTERY GIVEAWAY DAY

To be entered in the draw just leave a comment (or 3) below, including the title(s) of the book(s) in the Romantic Suspense/Mystery genre you would like to win.


Romantic Suspense/Mystery

A full-length story where a mystery is an important part of the plot. The hero or heroine (or both) are often in peril (more so in suspense.) Can be set in any time period -- historical or contemporary. May cross genres such as historical, dual timelines, Amish, YA.


How does it work?

Easy-peasy! Make recommendations in the comment section each day and if you win, you win the book you suggested.

BUT YOU GOTTA FOLLOW THE RULES!

Publication dates must be 
January, February or March 2018
Each day is genre specific so
only submit books from that genre
Christian Fiction books only please!
You can offer up to 3 suggestions a day
BUT
they need to be made in
three separate comments
(makes it easier for me to tally)
No email entries this week
(too hard to keep track of due to 
# of responses)
NEW - entrants must submit their own selections 
(not piggyback on someone else's logon) - NEW
Open to International Readers 
I'm all about spreading the good news about Christian Fiction 
all over the globe!!!!

It's helpful if you include your email (using AT and DOT instead of @ and . to protect yourself from spammers) but you only need to add it to one of your comments (per day). If you choose not to include your email then it's up to you to contact me if you are a winner.


Draw will be held and winner announced on 
Saturday December 23 2017

    1. Oopsy -- Blind Betrayal releases in April so it's just shy of the giveaway guidelines -- Jan, Feb, Mar. So choose another one in place of that, Terrill.

      I am sooooo looking forward to a sequel to The Lost Girl on Astor Street. I keep checking but nothing so far. Boohoo. I thought for sure it would be the start of a series.

      Good luck, Terrill!

  11. I fell in love with this genre due to some amazing blogger friends like you, Kav. So now I'm hooked! LOL. Here's my list:

    1. Glad I could play a part in converting you to romantic suspense! So many great books coming out. Your second choice though -- Troubled Waters -- isn't a suspense selection. It's adventure. There's a bit of an over arcing suspense about Ian's missing niece that's in the background of each book but it doesn't play a significant role in the plot and the hero and/or heroine aren't in danger from villians. Elements maybe but not villians. The author has this series pegged as Adventure not Suspense so I'm getting my info straight from the source. :-) Feel free to make another selection. Good luck!

  14. I love Jessica Patch so this is my top choice:

    1. Thanks for the heads up about Diana's birthday. I ran over to Facebook to wish her many happy returns of the day. :-) Excited about all these great LIS books coming out in the New Year and of course, If I Live is an absolutely must read as soon as it comes out because I need to get closure at long last kind of book. Good luck, Jackie.

    2. Jackie and Kav,thanks so much!! I had a wonderful b'day, but horror of horrors I didn't get one book as a gift. Gasp! I did get a lovely purse and some other nice things, but wouldn't you have thought they would have at least stuck a book in the purse? hehe

      Delete
    3. No books?! Well, as long as the purse is big enough to stick a book inside! Maybe your loved ones know that Santa has the books covered already.

      Delete
    4. OR maybe they think I got tired of getting books! One can never get enough books, but that might be something they just don't understand! Gasp! I must make that clear to them before Mother's Day!
      Bwahahaha

    1. I am so looking forward to Lethal Licorice. I get such a kick out of Amanda Flower's cozy mysteries.

      Kay, your second choice -- Survive the night isn't Christian Fiction. It sounds really good though. I checked and my library has the other books in the series so I'm going to try it out in the hopes it's a clean read because I adore K9 stories. I'll let you know what I think once I've read it. However, for the giveaway please go ahead and pick another book.

      Good luck!
