New Contest for Josi S. Kilpack's Latest Book!!! (CLOSED)

I love Josi S. Kilpack's Sadie Hoffmiller series and am very excited that the eighth book in the series, Tres Leches Cupcakes, will be released the first week of September.  This is a culinary cozy series featuring the quirky and interesting Sadie. She doesn't fit into your typical investigator role - which is what makes the books so entertaining. And, the recipes included in the books are pretty sweet too! 

Contest Details:  In conjunction with the release of Tres Leches Cupcakes, the author, Josi S. Kilpack, and the publisher, Shadow Mountain, are sponsoring a contest for free books.

To enter, leave a comment in the comment section on this blog before September 16th, 2012. Winners will be announced and notified September 17th 2012. For additional ways to enter, go to

About the book: For Sadie Hoffmiller, going undercover as an informant for the Bureau of Land Management on an archeological site in Santa Fe, New Mexico, seems like the perfect way to stay safe and busy while a threat against her life remains unresolved. Sadie’s days are spent digging up artifacts in the middle of nowhere while also digging up information on her fellow “dirt geeks.” With the help of her baking prowess—no one can resist those amazing dulce de leche bars—and Pete’s cousin, Caro, who takes to the detective work wholeheartedly, Sadie is finding herself again.

But the bright Southwestern sunshine only serves to illuminate the danger that lurks in the shadows. When recent burials are found on an ancient site, Sadie finds herself in the middle of an unexpected—and unwanted—investigation. The more she digs for the truth, the more secrets she uncovers—secrets that people would kill to keep hidden.

Before Sadie knows it, she’s arrested for starting a bar fight (which was totally not her fault), her new friend is missing, and she’s worn out her welcome in Santa Fe in more ways than one. A trip to the annual hot air balloon fiesta in Albuquerque is supposed to give her a break, but before long, she learns that when you’re dealing with the black market antiquity trade, you’re not really safe anywhere you go.

I am so excited for the release of this book!! I have read the entire series of these books, except for Banana Split which I plan on reading very soon and I have  thoroughly enjoyed all of them!!
