On October 15th, 2019, one lucky follower of this blog will win a complete set of the Quilting Cozy series, Books 1-10 by Carol Dean Jones. The winner will receive a signed, print copy of each of the ten books in the series as pictured above.
These books are cozy mysteries which, as you may know, are light mysteries centered around a group of friends involved in a hobby and who see themselves as amateur sleuths. Cozies are about relationships as much as the mystery and the friends in this series are active senior citizens living in a lively retirement village. Their main hobby, aside from solving mysteries, is quilting. These books are relaxing, involve no explicit sex or violence, and are fun to read.
All you need to do in order to be eligible for the random drawing is to leave a comment below. Tell me something about yourself, your reading habits, your hobbies…or tell me nothing at all except that you’d like to be including in the drawing. (The winner will be notified by the email on file so don’t include any personal contact information in your comments).
If you’ve already read the series, you might like them as a gift for a friend.
Or, you might want to reread them in preparation for Book #11 which will be coming out in the spring — stay tuned for more information!!
The random drawing will be held on October 15th, 2019, at 5pm EST. The winner will be notified immediately by email.

I have read one of your books and loved it!
I hope I am the winner of the series!
New adventures for Sarah and Sophie! Can’t wait for the new book. Love this series. I would be thrilled to receive the complete set!
I just discovered this series – read book # 1. Love it – anything related quilting has my attention. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
Hurray – another book is coming out! That is great to hear. Thanks for the opportunity Carol. 🙂
Looking forward to #11. I’ve enjoyed following Sarah’s and Sophie’s adventures.
I love to read when time allows in my busy life. I learned to make quilts years ago with my mom and grandma. One year we made one from polyester double knits and even grandpa helped cut out the squares. I still have the quilt today!
What an interesting series! I am an avid reader and sometime quilter…when the mood strikes!!!!
I love the 3 I’ve read so far! Can’t wait to get the next ones!
Sure sounds interesting! Just saw this on Facebook and thought I’d try my luck.
My Mom is 94,almost 95, she didnt take up leisure reading until the age of 85. She was never really afforded the opportunity. Her favorite genre has become mysteries. It is tough now to pull her away from a good story. I’m sure she would enjoy these immensely.
Would love to have this set of books. I’m an avid quilter.
I love mysteries and quilting. Sounds like a series I have to read.

I am absolutely mesmerized by all the beautiful quilts I see. My mother and my best friend both love to make quilts, and I want to start, but am just so intimidated by the whole process. Maybe these books would give me the courage to start quilting.

Two big loves I have- reading and sewing/quilting. Being a teacher assistant in a middle school I secretly wish for a couple of really good snow days to curl up on my couch to read or sew ( don’t tell my colleagues that I wish for snow days).😊

Hello! I have just completed my first quilting project – a block of the month quilt with a total of 53 blocks! It took 20 months to complete. I am challenging myself to continue and would appreciate receiving this set of books as inspiration.
My hobbies are reading and quilting. With your books I get to combine both. Read interesting books with quilters in it and then make a quilt inspired by the book. Thank you!
I love quilting and reading.
I would enjoy these books so much! I read them on my kindle but would love to have the hardcopies for myself and also to be able to loan them to friends. It would be fun to introduce them to your work.

I have read the first seven books and loved them all.I am a quilter and sew about twice a week with my quilting friends. We would welcome your quilters to join us!
I love mysteries & I love quilting & would love to have your books.
Although I’m not a quilter nor an avid reader, I would love to be included in your giveaway. It would likely prompt me to begin reading again!
Hi Carol, I’m Loris from the central coast of California. I’m a retired nurse who cares for my disabled DH and for several sweet fur kids. I like to spend time sewing quilts and walking dogs. Only a little bit of gardening going on at this point but would love to grow sunflowers, black eyed susans and some vegetables. I love reading about characters who are quilting and involved with others. I’m so glad you are writing down the stories for us. Thank you!
I love lighthearted mysteries. I love to sew and am a novice quilter.🌸
I love to quilt and to read quilting stories. I’m always looking for a new series of books to jump into.
I am an avid quilter and an avid reader. I read the first book and would love to read more. My mothers name was Carol Dean and you and she are the only ones I’ve ever known who go by both of the names Carol Dean. She always made sure everyone knew she was Carol Dean not Carol. We lost her in April.
I love to read and love to quilt. When I can read about quilting and quilters it’s the best.
Oh my I would so love to read these. Thank you. You are so generous. I have had my eye on some of these. In January I started reading cozies. My hobbies are quilting, sewing, count cross stitch and making greeting cards.
I love reading your books. They are soooo much fun to read and enjoy!
Hello! I enjoy cozy mysteries and share the love with my best friend and her mother. My bestie and I also enjoy quilting, making quilts for family members as well as for donation. Our plan is to get our great-niece hooked on both reading and quilting, although she has a bit of growing to do. She’s only 8-months-old. I would love to win your series of books, and I am thrilled to hear a new book is coming out in the Spring. ~smile~ Roseanne
Wonderful books. Love them.
When I’m troubled these are the books I can read and Believe in the world again! And go on!
Love your books. They’re fun and make me smile. I love quilting. If I end up single, I hope I can live in a nice fun retirement center like you write about with other fun quilting friends. Please keep the books coming.
Suzie Harris, TX.
I have been quilting since 1990 and have read all of your books. Really looking forward to your new one. Hugs
Love your books. Have read them twice already and will read them again. Love the dogs in the books. Can’t wait for book 11.
Since my head on collision, I have had a lot of time to read. I have had a lot of down time due to some serious injuries. I am not able to do hand sewing for any extended period of time. I am not able to hold knitting needles or sit for very long.
I also enjoy working with my Shelties in agility, but there again it is not as before
Would love to participate. I love to read and I love to quilt!
Best news I’ve read all week “Book 11 will be released in the Spring”. Your books have kept me company since I retired a year ago to a new city where I knew no one. As your books guide us to make friends in our local retirement center and through our downtown Quilt Shop I have joined two quilt groups and am enjoying some new friendships. Your inspiration in making the Rescue Quilt lead me to create one for our local shelter; I hope to have in ready for quilting in November. Thank you for all you do! I have read all your books and shared them with my cousins in Nebraska to read. I would love to win this heartwarming collection. Piecefully yours, Dawn Lunn
I hope I’m the winner!! I’d love to read your books!!
What a great gift you are giving someone. Thanks so much.
I really love your books they are so real life.
I love and am an avid quilter myself. I do many other crafty things as well. I love to listen to audio books while sewing and I read books every night when I lay down, they take my mind to wonderful stress free places, just like my quilting does! I would love an autographed copy of your cozy series, I would enjoy it immensely! Thanks for the chance at winning it!
I love your books and have been sharing with my mom and nieces. Cant wait for the next one. Thank you for the great entertainment.
When I am awake at 4:30 am I reach for a good mystery to read and I like the patterns included at the end of the books! Please add my name to the random drawing.
I am an avid Quilter who can’t Quilt right now since I am recuperating from shoulder surgery. This means all of my spare time can be spent reading which is tied for a favourite pastime. I read anything and everything I get my hands on. I am also a full time caregiver of my hubby who has MS. Life sure is interesting and your giveaway is on my birthday.
I am retired, avid mystery reader, quilter, cross stitcher, and rug hooker.
Thanks for a chance at this great prize.
I am so happy to know there will be a Book 11. I was sad when I finished Book 10 to think I was leaving my friends behind after getting to know them. Really enjoyed all the books.
Love your books and am looking forward to the next! I enjoy reading mysteries, quilting, crocheting and knitting. Blessings!
I have read most of your books on-line. Would love to have these books for my regular library!
I am an avid quilter too. I love your quick reads and the development of the characters. The best books i. My world i have sent my collection to a friend, would love to keep this collection. Lu. Your imagination! Keep writing, please!

I was new to quilting, learning with a group of ladies at my local quilt shop when I first started reading your books. Sarah and I are the same age And I immediately felt like I had made a new friend. I would love to have the set of ten books.
