Kiki Lowenstein and the Soldier's Gift


I've been waiting on pins and needles for Picture Perfect Corpse, the next Kiki Lowenstein mystery.  When I pre-ordered it from Amazon, I didn't even bother to read the description. I finally read the description yesterday and if I thought I was on pins and needles before, I don't know how to describe the way I'm feeling about it now!
 
As soon as I saw that there was a new anthology of short stories available, I downloaded it for my Kindle and happily started reading. 
 
In Kiki Lowenstein and the soldier's gift, Kiki organizes the customers at the scrapbooking store where she works to make cards for the Wounded Warrior  Project. They set an ambitious goal, which is quickly overshadowed by an even more ambitious mystery for her to solve.  I was in happy tears by  the story's end.  (A portion of the profits from the anthology will go to the Wounded Warrior  Project.)
 
Kiki Lowenstein and the Shark Bait provides a fun glimpse into Kiki's life before she met her husband (who was murdered in the first book of the series), and Kiki Lowenstein and the TP Caper is a "super short" story.
 


I was halfway through the book and already planning to write about it today when Joanna Campbell Slan emailed and asked if I'd like to give away two copies to my blog readers for Valentine's Day.  If you'd like a chance to win a copy for your Kindle, just leave a comment on this post. I'll choose the two winners and announce them Sunday morning.

Joanna is doing an online chat on Valentine's Day at 7 p.m. EST in the chat room on her Lila Dare website with four other authors and they'll all be giving away copies of their books. Her guests include Shelly Arkon, author of Secondhand Shoes; Mollie Cox Bryan, author of Scrapped; Nancy J. Cohen, author of Permed to Death; and Chrystle Fiedler, author of Scent to Kill

I'm linking up to Whatcha Reading? over at Patchwork Times.

Haven't read any of these books yet, so yes, I'd love to win the anthology. I'm always on the look out for a new cozy mystery author and series.

Me too, me too. I've enjoyed the Kiki books a lot. I need to figure out the last one read and get the next one. Thanks for the give away. I didn't notice a drawing date. Hope it hasn't already happened.
