Christmas in July! A Special Ellery's Mystery Cozy Contest!

Hosted By Ellery Adams

It's the first of the month! Usually, I give away an e-gift card for $10 to the bookstore of your choice, but this month I'm featuring a special Christmas in July prize. This wonderful tea lovers' gift basket could be yours if you name the correct cozy!

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 July 2nd.


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

"She yanked the door open and, to her horror, found Stan Berry sitting on the toilet. It looked like he'd found Eleanor's letter opener. It was sticking out of his chest."

Ellery's helpful hint - This author has TWO releases this month and her name appears somewhere in the prize photo! Good luck!

NOT THE KILLING TYPE - Lorna Barrett. (I really did know it!) This book was fabulous, and I never guessed the killer ~

Lorna Barrett - Not The Killing Type - and I believe accidentally finding a stranger on the toilet with a knife in his chest tops almost anything my mind could conceive.

Lorna Barrett....had me confused when you said 2 releases, then realized that Not The Killing Type was out in paperback along with Book Clubbed. Since I get all my cozy chick books on my Kindle I never have to wait. Answer is: Not The Killing Type by Lorna Barrett. Ozwizard1947@msn.com
