A Holiday Buzz Contest

Calling all cozy mystery lovers! Cleo Coyle is back with her 12th Coffee House Mystery. 
In Holiday Buzz, its time for "The Great New York Cookie Swap, pastry chefs bake up their very best for charity. Clare is in charge of the beverage service, and her famous Fa-la-la-la Lattes make the gathering even merrier. But her high spirits come crashing down to earth, when she discovers the battered body of a hard-working baker’s assistant. Police suspect a serial attacker whose escalating crimes have become known as “The Christmas Stalkings.” Clare’s boyfriend, NYPD detective Mike Quinn, finds reason to believe even more sinister forces are involved. Clare isn’t so sure—and when she finds a second bludgeoned baker, she becomes a target."

Ready for the best part? Cleo is gifting one of my U.S. readers 
a signed, personally inscribed, paperback of Holiday Buzz AND 
recipe card for Candy Cane Frosting. Marvelous right? 
To enter simply comment with your email address below. 
A winner will be selected and announced December 8th.

  13. This is not an entry, but I wanted to say it sounds fun! I grabbed a holiday read this week (I was thinking back to last year and remembered that you reviewed some Debbie Macomber books so I thought I'd try one). A holiday mystery is intriguing though

  24. Just popping in to thank the very sweet Juju for hosting this contest. And thanks to all of you for entering. The Coffeehouse Mystery series is a bit edgier than a typical cozy; my husband and I like to describe it as an *urban cozy*. Yes, the term sounds like an oxymoron, but our longtime readers tell us they very much enjoy the mix of mystery/crime, humor, romance, and family drama--and we hope you will, too.

    BTW - My husband is also my partner in crime writing--and, yes, for those of you who find it hard to believe a married couple can write together for a decade without killing each other, I'm happy to report that all of our murders (thus far) have taken place in fiction.

    Cheers, everyone, thanks again to Juju, and good luck to you all!

    May your holidays be bright...
