ARCs to give away!

I received a lovely box of Advanced Reader Copies from Berkley Prime
Crime and would like to share 3 of them! Please leave a comment and
I'll pick 3 winners by the end of the week.

FAT CAT AT LARGE is the first of a new cozy series. Here's the back cover copy:

When she’s not dreaming up irresistible dessert bars for her
Minneapolis treatery, Bar None, Charity “Chase” Oliver is running
after her cat, Quincy—a tubby tabby with a gift for sniffing out
edibles. But what happens when this cat burglar leads Chase to the
scene of a real crime?

The jig is up for Chase’s adorable plus-size cat, Quincy. His new vet
says “diet”—that means no more cherry cheesecake bars. From now on he
gets low-calorie kibble only. But one taste of the stuff is all it
takes to drive him in search of better things. Quincy’s escape is the
last thing Chase needs after the nasty run-in she has with underhanded
business rival Gabe Naughtly.

Chase tracks Quincy down in a neighbor’s kitchen, where he’s devouring
a meatloaf, unaware of the much more serious crime he’s stumbled upon.
Gabe’s corpse is lying on the kitchen floor, and when Chase is
discovered at the murder scene, she becomes suspect number one. Now,
with a little help from her friends—both human and feline—she’ll have
to catch the real killer or wind up behind bars that aren’t so sweet.
