Win a Copy of Make, Take, Murder

Although the official release date is May 1, I already have preview copies of the newest Kiki Lowenstein Mystery--Make, Take, Murder.

Even better the book already has its first Amazon review. The reader gave it 5 stars and said, "The mystery was wonderful."

Kirkus Reviews has said, " Kiki’s adventures (Photo, Snap, Shot, 2010, etc.) are a cut above the usual crafting cozies...the characters are so well-developed that each installment leaves the reader yearning for the next."

And Library Journal writes, "VERDICT--This author’s craft mysteries are topically relevant and chock-full of side stories." But I'd love to hear what YOU think.

So I have six copies of Make, Take, Murder to give away. All I ask is that if you like it, please consider writing and posting a review. How can you win? Comment! I'll randomize the comments and pull six winners.

Wondering if it's your cup of tea? Here's the back cover copy:

Dumpster diving for her lost paycheck is definitely the low point of Kiki Lowenstein's day--that is, until she finds a severed leg thrown in with the trash. Who'd toss a body part in the garbage outside the scrapbook crafts store where Kiki works?

Accompanying the grisly "gift" is a creepy computerized voice message, a warning to the store's "rich and snotty" female shoppers. Kiki soon discovers that the leg belonged to Cindy Gambrowski, a customer with a tyrannical and violent husband--who's now harassing Kiki. Combing through Cindys' scrapbook projects for hidden clues, Kiki tries to find the killer. Was it a crime of marital malice, or did someone else beat Cindy's husband to the punch?

I've been looking forward to Make, Take, Murder since I finished Photo, Snap, Shot last spring. The longing only intensified when I read your Kiki Halloween short story in October.
I adore Kiki and all her pals! Would love to win a copy of the latest adventure.

Wish I were headed to Malice Domestic again this year, it was fun last year with your previous book coming out.I am giving a program for a women's group on fan conventions and started getting out all the materials.
