When China’s and Ruby’s friend Karen Prior is mugged in a mall parking lot and dies a few days later, China begins to suspect that her friend’s death was not a random assault. Karen was a filmmaker supervising a student documentary about the fifteen-year-old murder of a woman named Christine Morris and the acquittal of the man accused of the crime. Is it possible that the same person who killed Christine Morris targeted Karen?

Delving into the cold case, China learns the motive for the first murder may be related to a valuable collection of Mexican art. Enlisting the help of her San Antonio lawyer friend Justine Wyzinski—aka the Whiz—China is determined to track down the murderer. But is she painting herself into a corner from which there’s no escape?

  1. I don’t usually like this style of forms but this one is OK. I like the idea that I can come back and get additional entries. Thanks.

  2. I don’t like this style of form as much as rafflecopter or the style you usually use. However, the fact that it verifies entries for you is probably very helpful. The one thing that I do appreciate is that we can tweet, or whatever 1x per day with this one… I still prefer your old form, where I do not have to remember my names on bloglovin, networked blogs and etc….

  3. I found it confusing. I went back to put in my whole address and am not sure it took. I had to do that because I hit enter to go down a line as you would to enter the next line in my address and it submitted it. Strange. I do not like to use any apps from FB! and since I got to Goodreads automatically, I can’t remember that name either.

  4. I love the series and would love to win a copy. However, I think that I liked the old form better….. Alicia

  5. I liked Rafflecopter better because when all was done above I don’t know if it took. However, if it did, it’s easy enough I guess.
    Anyway, I would love to read this series. I know I will have to go back and read most of the others, but hey, that would be fun!

  6. I like the clean lines of the form, but I missed about six points because it wouldn’t let me enter my name in some of the blocks.

  7. Not real crazy about the new form. Maybe it will just take getting used to it.

  8. The form is ok, rafflecopter is a little easier for me. The one that asks if you follow by email asks for my name, I figured it really wanted my email and I put that. I don’t generally use apps, and not thrilled with being forced to take it, but I know everyone else uses them so I gave it a shot, hoping that it doesn’t send junk to me or family. Anyhoo this book description sounds great, thanks for the chance to win.

  9. Thank you all for this input. The form definitely needs some tweaking. It is nice to have an alternative to rafflecopter and Google docs. If you receive any junk mail or anything detrimental because you have to sign up for the app please let me know. Like I said this was a test. I want to do what is easiest for you.

  10. Nope, don’t like giveaway tool. Doesn’t seem tp play nice on my iPad and I will not give the GT application access to FB profile, friends, etc. guess that ends any chance for your giveaways in the future. GT gave me no options to view or agree to their privacy policy & we know how free FB is with personal info.

    1. Thank you Linda!!This was just a test. I prefer my Google Docs, but Google makes me nervous because I couple of years ago they shut my blog and email and docs down unexpectedly which made me move to WordPress which was a wonderful outcome to a real mess. I was just checking new options. 🙂

  11. The form is easy enough. Like a couple of other folks, if I don’t get spam on Facebook or e mails than this is just fine. I wonder where else my information is going with this system. But I definitely enjoy your posts and , of corse, I love winning books to read and review for myself too!!

  12. The form took a really long time to load. In general, the options seem fine, although I noticed the extra following one is missing (that a choice of gfc, linky etc could be added for a point). If the form is good for you on your end–and easier to discern info, then go for it!

  13. Thanks for the giveaway!! When I first starting seeing this form in contests I did not like it. Now it’s my favorite form.

  14. This isn’t my favorite type of entry form. I much prefer either your usual form or the rafflecopter. BUT I’m willing to use whatever form is better for you to use in choosing winners. 🙂 ‘Cause I like winning. 🙂
