Ellery's Cozy Mystery Contest

By Ellery Adams

It's that time of the month again - your chance to win a $10 gift certificate to Mystery Lovers Bookshop (you can use this online).

I'll give you one line from a contemporary cozy and you have six days to email me the title and author at

Please DO NOT POST the answer. You can certainly post a comment, but no title or author name in the comments, okay?

Here's the line: "I let Diesel go out with the poodle, and Sean and I stood on the porch, gazing into the dimly lit backyard."

Ellery's hint: Though I couldn't resist a line about a poodle, the animal star of this book is a kitty.
