Midwinter's Eve Giveaway: One Man's Paradise

Welcome to the Midwinter's Eve Giveaway Hop. If this is your first time here, I hope you'll subscribe to my updates and come back for more. I love to write about mysteries, food, fiction and classics.

This short hop offers a chance to win something book related on each of the 125 participating sites.

For my giveaway, I'm pleased to offer a new hardcover copy of the mystery, One Man's Paradise by Douglas Corleone.

Winner of the Mystery Writer's of America First Crime Novel Award, this is the promising debut from author Douglas Corleone. He's a former attorney from New York City who now lives on Oahu. I met up with Doug two weeks ago and he's an impressive guy.

My review of One Man's Paradise is coming next week. I can tell you right now that you won't be disappointed.  It's a well paced who-done-it with plenty of action, court room drama, beautiful women and a spectacular Hawaii setting.

Entry Details: Giveaway is open to USA and Canada. Just comment on this post to enter. Be sure to include an email address unless it's on your profile. All giveaways on this hop close on Wednesday, December 22, at 11:59pm. Winner has 48 hours to respond or another entry will be chosen.

I'm also including the list of the other participating blogs. Enjoy the hop and Happy Holidays!

    such a good legal mystery.
