Looking for a sweet mix of historical fiction and mystery? This week's book give-away is The Girl is Murder by Kathryn Miller Haines.
In 1942 New York City, fifteen-year-old Iris grieves for her mother who committed suicide and for the loss of her life of privilege, and secretly helps her father with his detective business since he, having lost a leg at Pearl Harbor, struggles to make ends meet.
I love the elegance of the cover, which makes me think of all those dark noir detective movies with all the men wearing hats, and the ladies looking glamorous and chic. But instead of the girl playing the femme fatal, it looks like she is going to be the one to save the day here! (At least I hope so).
To win this book, tell me about your favorite mystery, and what you love about it. (Mine is The Beekeeper's Apprentice...16 year old American orphan meets Sherlock Holmes, and proves she is every bit his match!)
Drawing will take place Tuesday August 16th. Look here for the winner!
