This OR That #Giveaway № 82 ~ Riding Shotgun OR Claws and Effect by Rita Mae Brown #RidingShotgun #ClawsAndEffect


I have sooooo many books!

The This or That Giveaway! feature that I post every Saturday is a way for me to cull my collection and to share some of the many books I have. I get to clear off some of my shelves to make room for more books and give someone else the chance to enjoy these treasures.

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!


Riding Shotgun
by Rita Mae Brown
Hardcover ~ Published May 1997

The author of Venus Envy takes you on a riotous ride back to one woman's future...

In a delightful contemporary farce with a riotous twist, Rita Mae Brown welcomes you to Virginia's horse country, where a fox hunt is about to lead a 1990s woman, Cig Blackwood, into a 1690s adventure of the heart. Infidelity, single motherhood, family betrayal, and the thrill of the hunt (in many varieties) are hilariously and poignantly played out in this captivating novel of time travel and self-discovery.


Claws and Effect
by Rita Mae Brown
Hardcover ~ February 2001

As winter puts tiny Crozet, VA in a deep freeze, everyone seems to be suffering from a case of the winter blahs -- including postmistress Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen, who knows things must be dull if the hottest topic of conversation is a chain letter from the mysterious Sister Sophonisba. Even Harry's cats, Mrs. Murphy and Pewter, and her corgi Tee Tucker, haven't been able to dig up any dirt lately. 

But life in this small Southern town is about to heat up....The first hint of trouble comes when Hank Brevard, the plant manager of Crozet Hospital, and head nurse Tussie Logan let drop a few remarks that hint at a hospital in turmoil. Then a malicious comment by the hospital's director suggests that there's bad blood between him and his star surgeon, handsome Dr Bruce Buxton. Still, no one takes any of it seriously until Hank Brevard turns up dead in the hospital boiler room.

Harry, who can't resist a mystery no matter how dangerous, decides to do some investigating of her own. What she finds is that the hospital's a hotbed of secrets, a closed little world where ego, jealousy, and illicit love collide. But it's Mrs. Murphy, roaming the underworld of Crozet Hospital, who sniffs out the most telling fact: a secret room in the old section that dates back to the time of the Underground Railroad.

Then Harry is attacked and a doctor is executed in cold blood. Now the usually mild-mannered postmistress vows to bring the killer to justice. But when Harry gets too close to the truth, only a quick-witted cat and her animal pals stand between Harry and a homicidal maniac who means to ensure that she carries what she knows to the grave
