Splash Into Summer Giveaway Hop!

24 May

I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Page Turners Blog are hosting the second annual Splash Into Summer Giveaway Hop!   There are some really wonderful prizes for all book lovers given out by people all over the blogosphere. So to check out the bloggers giving away books and bookish things, click HERE. The giveaway runs from May 25 – May 31.

I am giving away a copy of Jennifer AlLee’s book The Mother Road and Lisa Wingate’s book Larkspur Cove to one lucky winner.  To enter my giveaway, leave me a comment (don’t forget your email address) telling your dream vacation spot.  Good Luck!

The Mother Road by Jennifer AlLee.  Within the course of a week, marriage expert Natalie Marino is dumped by her husband, receives an urgent call home from her father, and discovers her estranged sister, Lindsay, is pregnant.

A road trip on Route 66 may not help, but it sure couldn’t hurt. Or so Natalie thinks, until Lindsay’s boyfriend starts stalking them. Will their trip down the Mother Road bring the two sisters closer, or turn out to be the biggest wrong turn of their lives?


Larkspur Cove by Lisa Wingate.  Adventure is the last thing on Andrea Henderson’s mind when she moves to Moses Lake. After surviving the worst year of her life, she’s struggling to build a new life for herself and her son as a social worker. Perhaps in doing a job that makes a difference, she can find some sense of purpose and solace in her shattered faith.

For new Moses Lake game warden Mart McClendon, finding a sense of purpose in life isn’t an issue. He took the job to get out of southwest Texas and the constant reminders of a tragedy for which he can’t forgive himself.

    I’ve come to love receiving your reviews, which definitely influence the books I choose to read. I even forward your reviews to friends who are also avid readers.

    I’d love to win and read the two books you’re giving away. Thanks for the opportunity.

    My dream vacation spot is always the beach. I love the ocean. I think someday I would love to see Hawaii, or another spot that has the pretty blue/green water.

    For years, our family dreamed of a cabin in the Northern Wisconsin woods on a lake. That dream has come true and we feel blessed each time we spend time there. If we’d travel, I would love to see Alaska and also Ireland/Scotland.
