Fiddling With Fate Giveaway!

How would you like to read my new Chloe Ellefson mystery a month before it is officially released?

Fiddling with Fate is a riveting page-turner that culminates in a nail-biting ending. It is more than superlative fiction. It’s a masterpiece. -Author Maddy Hunter, Passport to Peril Mysteries

Publishers prepare Advance Review Copies (ARCs) in order to get some buzz going prior to publication. And I have six to give away.

The six winners will be randomly selected from all entries here and on my Facebook Author Page. Each will receive a signed paperback ARC—which I will send via priority mail.

Enter to win by leaving a comment below before 11:59 PM (Central US time), Monday, July 29, 2019. One entry per person, please.

The winners’ names will be posted here the following day. Good luck!

Fiddling with Fate is a story about proud, strong women and bitter dark secrets. In her richly-detailed and multi-faceted mystery, Kathleen Ernst skillfully intertwines the past with the present as Chloe and Roelke search for her family roots in Norway amid escalating danger. Author Patricia Skalka, Dave Cubiak Door County Mysteries

  20. Karen Agee Says:

    I came to love Norwegian folk music and dance through Folklore Village, Dodgeville, WI when in my 20’s. Haven’t danced in decades, but this upcoming book with Chloe in Norway inspired me to dust off my record of Norwegian Folk Music by Hans Brimi, Mary Barthelemy and Jon Faukstad. You can listen to samples of their tunes on-line. I expect hearing the music will enhance the story, so encourage all to seek it out while we wait for the book.

  58. Diana Leonard Says:

    I only discovered these terrific books a few years ago. After the first read I read them back to back to back. Now I have Audible editions so I can listen when I can’t be reading. I would love an advance copy so I can read it right away and start telling everyone I know what they have to look forward to.

  59. Howard and Shar Te Beest Says:

    Can’t wait for the next one! When are the Audiophiles going to get another book to listen to??? Chloe and Roelke make my rides seem so much shorter! (WI State Patrol frowns on reading actual books behind the wheel!) I’ve learned so much about the history of my home state and the Midwest through these books. It makes me want to be a tourist in my own state!

    • Kathleen Ernst Says:

      Hi, and thanks for the query about audio books. The company that produced the first three hasn’t chosen to pick up any more. I hope that we can find another good audio home in the future, as many people make that request!
