Ellery's Mystery Cozy Contest

Hosted By Ellery Adams

It's the first of the month and a chance to win an e-gift card for $10 to the bookstore of your choice).

This is how it works: I post a few lines from a cozy mystery. You post the title and author in the comment section. Then, I'll draw a random name from the winning guesses and post that person's name on this page and on Facebook by 10 p.m. on June 2nd.



Okay, here we go! Here are the lines from this month's mystery cozy:

"Murray, the local real estate mogul who had tried to develop large swathes of Cranberry Island in the past, was motivated by one thing only: money."

Ellery's helpful hint - This author is a former Cozy Chick and creates some of the funniest Facebook posts I've ever read. Good luck!

I know it's Karen MacInerney and her Grey Whale Inn Mystery series, but I'm not positive which book. I'll guess Brush With Death.
