Free Books – A Quilting Cozy series

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.
