Sometimes around mid-December I started to feel overloaded with all the sweets and the shopping and the elves upon shelves. Whenever I need a break from the holiday chaos I like to sneak into a quiet corner and curl up with a good suspense book. This time of year when the weather outside is frightful, I especially like to read books that have winter settings. There’s something extra-creepy about a cold, desolate backdrop for murder and mayhem… and if the story includes a hot guy to warm things up, so much the better!



Today’s giveaways are:

Hush by Karen Robards

Shadow Fall by Laura Griffin

Running Blind by Cindy Gerard

Just One Lie by Kyra Davis
