Start a New Series Giveaway

Good morning, readers! I'm cleaning off my giveaway shelves this week. First up, I want you to start a new series :)

Here's what's up for grabs today:

Woman With a Secret by Sophie Hannah - while this one is technically the 9th installment in Hanna's Spilling CID series, it works great as a jumping in point.

You can check out my official review here, and here's a bit about the book from Goodreads:

Traffic on Elmhirst Road has come to a halt. The police are stopping cars, searching for something. Nicki Clements waits patiently, until she glimpses a face she hoped she’d never see again. It’s him—and he’s the cop checking each car. Desperate to avoid him, she makes a panicky U-turn and escapes.

But Nicki’s peculiar behavior did not go unnoticed, and now the police have summoned her for questioning. A resident of Elmhirst Road has been murdered—a controversial newspaper columnist named Damon Blundy. The detectives begin peppering her with questions. Why was she seen fleeing the scene? What is her connection to the victim? Why was the knife that killed him used in such a peculiar way? Why were the words “HE IS NO LESS DEAD” painted on the wall of Blundy’s study?and what do they signify?

One simple answer could clear her. But she can’t explain why she fled Elmhirst Road that day without revealing the secret that could ruin her.

Nicki isn’t guilty of murder. But she’s far from innocent . . .

I've also got a copy of Where Monsters Dwell by Jørgen Brekke. This is the first title in Brekke's Odd Singsaker series. It's a dark and twisted debut that's lots of fun. You can check out my official review here. I wasn't at all sure if this was going to be a series at the time I wrote my review but fortunately for all of us Dreamless released in hardcover earlier this year. 

Here's the description from Goodreads:

A murder at the Edgar Allan Poe Museum in Richmond, Virginia, bears a close resemblance to one in Trondheim, Norway. The corpse of the museum curator in Virginia is found flayed in his office by the cleaning staff; the corpse of an archivist at the library in Norway, is found inside a locked vault used to store delicate and rare books. Richmond homicide detective Felicia Stone and Trondheim police inspector Odd Singsaker find themselves working on similar murder cases, committed the same way, but half a world away. And both murders are somehow connected to a sixteenth century palimpsest book—The Book of John—which appears to be a journal of a serial murderer back in 1529 Norway, a book bound in human skin.

To enter, simply fill out the Rafflecopter for either (or both) title that piques your interest before Monday, December 28. Both giveaways open US only.
