In addition to the blog tour giveaways there is a BONUS book giveaway available only for those who comment on today's post. I'm giving away TWO copies of Denice's book from my own stash, so you double your chances. Have a tweener niece or nephew, son or daughter, grandkid, or someone you know who is young at heart that would enjoy this book? Here you go. Leave a comment and I'll draw a name this Friday, May 9. On with the show!

For Brad and Charlie Parker, even their best intentions lead to trouble in the new book-

Where Would Cows Hide?
by D.C. Stewart

While their parents are on vacation in Hawaii, eleven year old twins Brad and Charlie Parker, and their little sister Zoey, arrive at their grandparents’ cattle ranch in Oklahoma to discover nothing is as it should be.
Grandpa and Grandma’s cattle are disappearing; mysterious strangers are lurking around the ranch; the strange lady at church seems to know their every move; not to mention a psychic lazy dog; and a weird little sister always getting in the way.
How will these twin troublemakers unravel this strange mystery?
Find out in the new book Where Would Cows Hide?

D.C. Stewart grew up in a small town in Oklahoma, and spent most of her childhood getting into trouble with her younger brother on their ranch. She began writing short stories in high school, and won a writing competition at a nearby college at age 17. After graduating, she attended Northwestern Oklahoma State University and earned a degree in History, and also met her husband, Scott. She worked for a church in Maumelle, Arkansas as the Communications Coordinator for five years. After moving back to Oklahoma, she chose to stay home with their four year old twin boys, and six month old baby girl, and to pursue her dream of being a full-time writer. The Stewart’s live in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Where Would Cows Hide? is her first novel.
