Welcome to Booklover’s Bench, a website devoted to bringing good things to readers. We’re delighted to have you here.

Join us in welcoming Judge Debra H. Goldstein to Booklover’s Bench! Debra is the author of One Taste Too Many, the first of Kensington’s new Sarah Blair cozy mystery series. She also wrote Should Have Played Poker and the IPPY Award-winning title, Maze in Blue. Her short stories have appeared in numerous periodicals and anthologies. You can read more about Debra HERE. We are excited to add her voice to the Bench!

Parting from us will be Karla Brandenberg. We are sad to see Karla go but wish her the best on her future endeavors. Her contributions and presence will be missed, but we’re still friends and hope to see her online often.

Get to know us–links to our social media sites are in the left sidebar. Each month, we’ll be hosting contests and different ways to win our books and other exciting prizes. These can change in the blink of an eye–our authors are generous people and are constantly thinking of ways to reward readers.

Our monthly contest now features books as prizes for our friends and fans. The winner of the Rafflecopter contest will select a prize from our Prize Vault. Click Here to Enter
