BBAW Giveaway #2: in a mystery mood

I had a look at my giveaway box and decided to offer up a couple of mysteries this time around.  Best Intentions by Emily Listfield, and Every Secret Thing by Laura Lippman. Both books have been read once by me, but they both still look almost like new. Best Intentions is a hardback; Every Secret Thing is a mass market paperback. For more info on the books, click on the book covers below to read about them at Amazon. You can read my reviews of the books by clicking on the titles above.



To enter, your comment must include all of the following, or it won't be counted:
1) The title of the book you'd like to win. You can enter for both but in that case please indicate order of preference.
2) Your answer to: What is the best mystery you've read this year?  (It can be crime/suspense/cozy/hard-boiled/whatever - I define the genre very loosely).    
3) Your email address, unless it's easily visible on your blog.

The giveaway is open worldwide and you have until Tuesday, September 22nd to enter. The winner will be announced shortly thereafter. Good luck!

Thank you for entering. This giveaway is now closed. The winners will be announced soon.

    I don't read a lot of mystery at the moment, but this year I did read and enjoy Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane.

  6. I want "Every Secret Thing" and I am not a fan of mysteries, so I can't answer that really. I can share which novel with a mystery inside I found best: "Scar Night" by Allan Campbell. :) Hope that works and my e-mail is definitely easy to find.

  7. Thanks for another great contest! If I win, I would like Best Intentions. I actually only read one mystery this year. It was Murder on the Eiffel Tower by Victor Legris. I really enjoyed it!

  10. Wow, two great choices, I would love to read Every Secret Thing. It sounds like such a wonderful and sad story. The best mystery I have read this year was The Girl Who Stopped Swimming. I just could not figure out what happened until the very moment it was revealed.

  17. I would like to enter for Every Secret Thing. Best Intentions sounds good as well. I have read all of Harlan Coben's books and enjoyed all of them with Tell No One and Gone for Good as my favorites. Can't wait to read the newest one but have a few other books to go before getting to that one.
