Spring Cleaning Giveaway

Spring Cleaning Giveaway Hop is brought to you by I Am A Reader Not A Writer, whose guidelines for this hop are to, "clear out your overflowing bookshelf and pass some of your books on to other booklovers.  Time to pass on those books that just weren't for you or the review copies that you are never going to get read."

So my contribution to this hop is two "Advanced Reader Copies" I got from my indie bookstore off the free shelf a while back. 
Criminal by Karin Slaughter
Goodreads book description here.
Trespasser by Paul Doiron
 Goodreads book description here.
Although comments are always welcome it is not required to enter this giveaway. If, however, you feel like picking a word to help me with my combo of April's Blogging From A-Z Challenge and Camp NaNoWriMo I am doing a seat-of-my-pants mini-mystery. Just go to this link if you would like to donate a word. :) Credit will be given for the word of the day I use for that day.

BUT to win the books above here is all you need to do: One winner will be chosen to win both the books. Use the rafflecopter below between March 20-25 (Ends at midnight on the 25th EST). This way the winner is randomly picked and I have contact info to notify the winner. It's that simple! One entry per person. The winner will be announced in this blog post for all to see within 24 hours of contest's end and an email sent to the winner. The winner will have 48 hours to respond to the email or another winner will be chosen.
Open to US residents only. (Sorry, it's a postage thing.)

Waiting for Harvey

Alone, in a cabin in the woods, with a ghost. Who could ask for more in a ghost story? Harvey starts right out with a hint of foreboding in a conversation between brothers John and Erik. Already my curiosity is roused as to what happened...
