A Cozy Giveaway

Fans of cozy mysteries, I have a spectacular book giveaway for you!  Thanks to the great generosity of award-winning author Barbara Venkataraman (who's also an attorney specializing in family law and debt collection), I'm hosting this giveaway for a box set of the Jamie Quinn Mystery Collection: Books 1-3.  This giveaway is open internationally, although if you live outside of the U.S.A. and win, you'll receive the ebook version of this set.  Although I haven't read any of these mysteries yet, they truly sound terrific. I read some of the Amazon reviews for these mysteries, and I hope to read these books in the future.  (I'd certainly like to read more cozies this year!)  In the books, Jamie Quinn is a lawyer, and she sounds like a wonderful protagonist.

The three books in this set are:

Book 1: Death by Didgeridoo
Book 2: The Case of the Killer Divorce
Book 3: Peril in the Park

The author said that a didgeridoo was the inspiration for her first Jamie Quinn mystery. What is a didgeridoo?  Barbara gave me a brief definition in her email, but I wanted to learn more.  I was surprised that when I asked Siri, she understood my question (even though I wasn't sure how to pronounce the term and didn't enunciate), and pulled up the Wikipedia page.  Great job, Siri! 

Barbara thought that a didgeridoo would make a distinct lethal weapon in her story.  She provided the photo of the didgeridoo, below. 

Without further delay, I'm thrilled to offer a giveaway for a box set of the Jamie Quinn Mystery Collection: Books 1-3, to my readers.
