The winner will be announced on October 11. Now on to the books!

DIE LIKE AN EAGLE by Donna Andrews 
An August 2016 LibraryReads pick! Agatha-winner Andrews’s “charming”* 20th mystery in the funny cozy series finds heroine Meg Langslow tangling with Biff Brown, the petty, vindictive league head of her twin sons’ youth baseball team, the Caerphilly Eagles. When Biff’s lookalike brother is found dead in the porta-potty at the ball field on opening day, Meg suspects he may actually have been the intended victim. “With its well-spun plots and distinctive characters, Andrews’s amusing avian-named series shows no signs of growing stale.” — *Publishers Weekly, starred review

PARADIME by Alan Glynn
The new standalone doppelganger thriller from the award-winning author of LIMITLESS brings to mind Orphan Black with Hitchcockian undertones. “Deliciously creepy… The plot keeps moving with plenty of effective surprises, and the final chapters successfully navigate to an even darker tone.” — Kirkus Reviews

MISS DIMPLE AND THE SLIGHTLY BEWILDERED ANGEL by Mignon Ballard
Ballard’s beloved series heroines, first grade teacher Miss Dimple Kilpatrick and guardian angel Augusta Goodnight, must work together to find a murderer. “Ballard expertly weaves the lives of her endearing small-town characters with details of the wartime home front.” — Publishers Weekly readmoreremove
