Giveaway: Detectives Don't Wear Seat Belts


Detectives Don't Wear Seat Belts


Detectives Don't Wear Seat Belts
by Cici McNair


Hardcover: 368 pages
Publisher: Center Street
First Released: 2009


The Book Bloggers Appreciation Week begins on Monday, and I'll be giving books away on all three of my blogs that week. We were just told we could start the giveaways, so I'll go ahead and start this one today!

I enjoyed Detectives Don't Wear Seat Belts by Cici McNair, so I agreed to host this giveaway for the charming Brianne Beers of Hachette Book Group. You can learn more about the book by reading my review.


Five copies are being given away. This giveaway is for residents of the US & Canada only (no PO boxes).


To enter the giveaway:

1) you can twitter me saying "@genrereviewer Enter me to win DETECTIVES DON'T WEAR SEATBELTS. I'd like to win because_______." Include the reason you're interested in this book. (You don't have to use the exact "I'd like to win because" wording.)

OR

2) You can leave a comment to this post asking to be entered. Also share the reason you're interested in winning this book.


The winner will be randomly selected. I'll announce the winner at noon (Central Time, Daylight Savings Time) on Sept. 23, 2009 on this blog. If you entered using twitter, I'll send you a @ or DM telling you of your win and asking where to send the book. If you entered using the blog comments, you'll need to leave your e-mail address or check back to see if you won so you can e-mail me your shipping address.

I hope everyone has fun with this!

Please enter me. She sort of sounds like a competent Stephanie Plum (whom I love). I also love memoirs and need to read more of them if I'm ever going to do a good job of writing my own. Plus, who can resist a strong female lead (true or fictional detective story)? I'll also review it on my blog.

I would love to read this book - I'm a beginner at reading memoirs, but find them ultimately enjoyable. I'd love to learn more about the detective world, and your review made it sound like this book wouldn't just be a tell-all, it will require you to use your brain. I love a book that makes me work for it!

I've been reading such great things about this book but also, since reading all the Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, Trixie Beldon and Bobbsey Twins books as a child, I've wanted to be a PI. In fact, a few years ago, I tried my hand at it and was rather impressed with the info I was able to gather without a license!
