Excited to announce that the winner of my spring break GIVEAWAY package is: Deborah Charles!
Wouldn’t you know it?  The one and only time I decided to do a travel-theme giveaway package . . . sigh.

Well, I’ll let Deborah decide if she wants the Hilton gift cards, or if she would like Visa gift cards instead. At any rate, Congrats, Deborah! At least you’ll have a stack of books to while away the time, just in case you’re stuck indoors in your part of the country.  Just think - you’ve now got a free pass to Chicago in the 1930’s…hope you enjoy!

And for everyone else who didn’t win – stay tuned for more exciting giveaways as I lead up to the launch of
A Child Lost. 

Special Note: I don’t want to make this newsletter about the virus, but I do want to take a bit of this space to wish you and your loved ones good health.  Stay safe, all of you!

Early reviews for A Child Lost are starting to pour in!  Pre-Order now!
"Once again, Cox delivers the passion and intrigue of Henrietta and Clive with a story that leaps right off the page. A Child Lost is a true thrill..." —Paperback Paris
"...vivid descriptive prose and historical accuracy"— Publishers Weekly
“Having already won myriad awards for her novels, this book is, in my opinion, the author’s best written yet. The action/suspense at the end of A Child Lost sizzles, and Ms. Cox’s ability to capture love in many of its varied, authentic forms is mesmerizing.  Cox has knocked it totally out of the park.”—Carolyn Breckinridge, author of Kaleidoscope Jane: & Other Stories 

“From the very first paragraph the reader is back in the world of 1930's Chicago populated by Elsie and Gunther and Henrietta and Clive. This book is the fifth in the series by Michelle Cox and to me the best yet.”— Cheryle Fischer

“The story flows so nicely from chapter to chapter that the reader is never bored. It was such a fun and entertaining read. I highly recommend this novel and the others in the series to readers who want a good historical mystery.”—Kristie Dilcher
