Giveaways Continuing This Week:
Mr. Samuel’s Penny is by Treva Hall Melvin. In 1972, fourteen-year-old Elizabeth Landers’ NYC parents sent her to sleepy little Ahoskie, NC for what became an unforgettable country summer. It all started with a horrible bridge incident…was it an accident, a racially motivated “incident” or something else sinister? Click on the book title to go to the Giveaway Page!
Risky Undertaking is a Burying Barry Mystery by Mark de Castrique. When a Cherokee tribe member is found executed on a local woman’s new grave, Barry Claton, a Gainesboro, NC deputy and undertaker, gets swept up into a complex web of local Southern politics and Cherokee tribal affairs, and much more. What seemed like an open and shut case suddenly isn’t anymore. Click on the book title to go to the Giveaway Page!
We’re participating in the annual book-related Gratitude Giveaways Hop. Our thank you to our loyal readers is an International Giveaway this year, with a gift card prize you can redeem for that book (or those e-books) you’ve been dying to read!

The Happiest People in the World is by Brock Clark. We like quirky books at Popcorn Reads, and this one falls into that category. It’s a madcap adventure/spy thriller with oddball CIA agents, bungling terrorists, and an inept cartoonist turned political refugee. From Denmark, where the happiest people in the world are said live, to a weird small town in upstate New York, if people keep telling themselves everything will be just fine then maybe eventually they’ll be right at least once.
