Jennifer Sturman Giveaway!!

We're starting off this week with a cool giveaway by Jennifer Sturman!

Jennifer Sturman is the author of two adult mysteries and has now blasted into YA with her cool novel, AND THEN EVERYTHING UNRAVELED by Scholastic Point.

This is what we'll be giving away:

3 galleys of the book
3 Magic Eightball Keychains
(and when the book is released) 3 autographed copies of AND THEN EVERYTHING UNRAVELED.


Here's what the story is about:

Delia Truesdale has no idea her life's about to change forever. She's too busy enjoying the California summer. Her internet tycoon mother, T.K. Truesdale, is out of town, and that means Delia can spend all her time at the beach, surfing. That is, until everything unravels.

Her mother suddenly goes missing, and everyone thinks she's dead - excpet Delia, who knows T.K.'s way too organized to simply disappear. But Delia's still sent to New York to live with her two aunts - a downtown bohemian and an uptown ice queen.

And in case that's not bad enough, she also has to deal with a snooty new school and trying not to fall for the wrong guy. Oh, and finding her mother.

As she delves deeper into the tangle of conspiracies and lies surrounding T.K.'s disappearance, Delia begins to suspect that the wrong guy may be the right guy...and that some secrets - especially the dangerous ones - were never meant to be unraveled.

Sounds like a intriguing read, huh? Leave a comment of your favorite mystery book or mystery movie or detective and we'll pick the three lucky winners on Thursday, July 9th, 2009!

Also Jennifer is having a cool event in the New York area July 22, 2009 @ 7:00 to 8:00 PM @ the Partners & Crime Mystery Booksellers.

Happy commenting and good luck! :)

Wow, sounds wonderful! I have always loved mysteries, so I don't know if I have just one favorite, but loved Nancy Drew. In fact, have been meaning to see the Emma Roberts' movie version...

yabooknerd said...

Favorite mystery - wow that's really hard because I LOVE mysteries. But I can't help gobbling up the Stephanie Plum series my Janet Evanovich. They're just so outrageous and laugh to you cry funny not to mention a bit scary at times.

This book looks good!

robin_titan said...

It does sound intriguing!

My favorite mystery movie is The Illusionist. :)

Aimee said...

I love mysteries, especially those by Lisa Scottoline focusing on Rosato and Associates, an all female law firm in Philadelphia! Thanks for the contest.

Erica said...

My favorite mysteries were always the Nancy Drews! I have almost all of them, I have over 100 at last count. :)
I also loved the book Missing Since Monday!

And it definately sounds like an intriguing read!

Erin said...

Of course it would have to be the one and only Miss Nancy Drew.

I'm gonna have to go old school on this one and say Clue! It's amazing in nearly every incarnation.

If I were forced to pick a book series I would say Trixie Belden. They were recommended to me by the lovely Linda Gerber and I'm hooked!

The Golfing Librarian said...

Sounds like a great read and something my daughter might actually read.
I happen to be a fan of the character Lord Peter Death Bredon Wimsey, by Dorothy L. Sayers.

Yessenia said...

Melanie said...

My favorite mysteries were The Hardy Boys. They always were gettin into a scrape of some kind or another!

Shalonda said...

My favorite mystery movie is a toss up between The Bone Collector and Taking Lives. I LOVE both of these movies and could watch them once a day without tiring of them. Plus Angelina Jolie is awesome in both!

ellie_enchanted said...

Favorite movie? There's this really good mystery called Murder by Numbers.
I don't read mysteries much.

Kelly Parra said...

I thought someone else might mention her, but I have to as my favorite detective--Veronica Mars! :) :)

RebeccaPalson said...

Okay, this is completely showing some age on me, but I've always had a thing for the original Pink Panther Movies. Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau is phenomenal. So I put in my vote for the slapstick detective, mystery ;)

sweetmelissa818 said...

I love Veronica Mars, Kelly!

Mitzy said...

Wow I love mysteries but I'm having the hardest time thinking of one! Meg Cabot has the series and I read Big Boned and really want to read the other books with the same character!

Diana Dang said...

My favourite mystery book is Death by Denim! It has a mix of thrilling adventures!

Sheyla said...

My favortie mystery book is Let Me Call You Sweethart by Mary Higgins Clark. On the television side of things, Castle is my favorite detective mystery series. The main character is an author. Does that earn me extra points? :)

Llehn said...

I love the Anita Blake series when she still had legitimate cases to solve.

Thao said...

I'm not a fan of mystery but I love James Patterson books. My favorite is Pop Goes The Weasel.

Summer said...

Veronica Mars is my fave!

Sunnie said...

I can't wait to read this! Looks great. Historically, I really love the Agatha Christie mysteries. Lately, I really loved What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell. Sort of a mystery/historical fiction/chick lit mix.

MD said...

I love the Abby Cooper Psychic Eye Mystery Series by Victoria Laurie!

I love Betsy Brannon Green's mysteries. Until Proven Guilty is one of my favorites. Her mysteries are just dripping with romance which gives them a fun twist!

What a Girl Reads said...

Hard question, but I like Janet Evanovich's Plum sries and Meg Cabot's Heather Wells series :)
