The FINAL Year of Mysterious Giveaway: August 2012

As I mentioned a few months ago, August would be my final Year of Mysterious Giveaway. Due to cost reasons, low response and me generally sucking about keeping up with it, I decided to end it. I wanted to go out with a bang with one of my favorite mystery/thriller authors out there, Sandra Brannan.

Most of you know my story and connection with Sandra, going back a few years now to when I met her at my first BEA and Book Blogger Convention. There I got her first book and read it on my flight home. I loved it and have eagerly awaited each book in the series. Widow's Might marks the third book in her series featuring, Liv Bergen.

I am very excited to have a copy to give away to one of my readers. Stay tuned for more posts about this book and Sandra coming up in the next month. She will be doing a book signing at the bookstore I work at in September and I'll have lots to post at that time.

Here's a description from Goodreads:
The third Liv Bergen mystery picks up right where the second one left off: the murder of Liv’s future sister-in-law has been solved, but an older rancher has been bludgeoned to death in a style eerily reminiscent of a long-inactive killer known only as the Crooked Man. FBI agent Streeter Pierce, still on assignment in Sturgis, South Dakota, must now turn his sights on tracking down the killer—his nemesis from ten years earlier. Pierce doesn’t complain, though; he’s falling in love with Liv and sets in motion an unconventional plan to recruit her for the FBI’s training camp in Quantico as they work the case together. But is Liv falling for the brilliant, exotic agent Jack Linwood instead?

Once again, Liv’s vast knowledge of the Black Hills of South Dakota—territory made famous by the gold rush that followed General George Custer’s expedition—and the novel folk who live there leads her to unearth critical clues about the Crooked Man. But are facts enough to safeguard Liv’s sister Elizabeth and her friend, an elderly woman battling cancer who was attacked just days after her husband was murdered? Will the frail yet feisty widow recover her strength in time to help Liv thwart the Crooked Man’s murderous plans and fatal blows?

If you have not heard of this series, well, shame on you. No, seriously, here's the link to her website (Sandra Brannan) to check out her first two titles. Her character Liv is whip smart, nosy, funny and a whole lot of fun to read. Oh and there is a sexy FBI agent too. !

Contest Rules:
