The Celebration Continues

We're getting snow today in Northeast Ohio. Imagine that, in January! So after I finish my work and my (most importantly) playing with dogs, I plan to hunker down with my book and mug of cocoa. I hope you have something good to read today.

In the meantime I want to continue the blog celebration! If you didn't check out day's one Craig Johnson giveaway or day two's Hank Phillippi Ryan giveaway, be sure to do so. Today I have a hardcover copy of Snow White Must Die by Nele Neuhaus for the winner. The trade paperback was just issued with the release of the new book in the series, Bad Wolf. So if you haven't given this one a go, find out what everyone is talking about by winning your own copy! Just complete the form below (US/Canada mailing addresses only, please) by this Sunday.

Here's a little about the book:

On a rainy November day police detectives Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein are summoned to a mysterious traffic accident: A woman has fallen from a pedestrian bridge onto a car driving underneath. According to a witness, the woman may have been pushed. The investigation leads Pia and Oliver to a small village, and the home of the victim, Rita Cramer.

On a September evening eleven years earlier, two seventeen-year-old girls vanished from the village without a trace. In a trial based only on circumstantial evidence, twenty-year-old Tobias Sartorius, Rita Cramer’s son, was sentenced to ten years in prison. Bodenstein and Kirchhoff discover that Tobias, after serving his sentence, has now returned to his home town. Did the attack on his mother have something to do with his return?

In the village, Pia and Oliver encounter a wall of silence. When another young girl disappears, the events of the past seem to be repeating themselves in a disastrous manner. The investigation turns into a race against time, because for the villagers it is soon clear who the perpetrator is—and this time they are determined to take matters into their own hands.

An atmospheric, character-driven and suspenseful mystery set in a small town that could be anywhere, dealing with issues of gossip, power, and keeping up appearances.

Also, a reminder that time is running out to enter for your chance to win Hilary Davidson's upcoming standalone Blood Always Tells in my blog hop giveaway.
