Book Give-away


This summer I discovered a new to me author, Robyn Carr. My friend Brenda lent me the first book of the Virgin River series. It had the charm of Debbie Macomber books and Jan Karon books. I've spent the summer reading the entire Virgin River series, about 10 books. I've just started the second book in the Grace Valley series. Ms. Carr's books are a great summer read! Her books containe lots of characters. Characters who are forced to grow to achieve happiness.

In late July, DH and I made a long, quick road trip to Louisiana and back. The book that I brought with me to read in the car was not holding my attention. It was one that I had to read for my book club (Mennonite in a Little Black Dress). On one of our refueling for gas/bathroom breaks, I ran to the Walmart next door. I was frantic for something to help pass the endless hours in the car. I purchased Summer in Sonama by Robyn Carr. My problems were solved. I was totally immersed in the book and happily made it home.

Several bloggers are paying it forward and re-gifting books that they have won from other blogs. My problem is I haven't finished the books that I won. My solution is to share Summer in Sonoma.  Leave a comment on the post for a chance to win. I'll pull a name next Wednesday, August 25th. I'd love if you left me a title of a book that you enjoyed in the comments. I'm always on the look-out for something good to read:)

I would love to win the book. I have also read most of Macomber and all of the Karon books. One of my favorite authors is Jennifer Chiaverini - I've read the entire series! Unfortunately I can't give any of them away as I already donated them to the local SPCA booksale!

I haven't read Robyn Carr, and I will have to give her a try.

I don't even know where to start in suggesting books - have you tried any Adriana Trigiani books? - fun reads.

I loved Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, and also The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

If you like mysteries, try Julie Hyzy's State of the Onion series (set in the White House). I could go on and on, but I'll stop there.

I like Nicholas Sparks. I hadn't read Robyn Carr and would love the opportunity.

Oh, how cool! I am paying it forward on my blog too...please throw my name in the hat for this one! Either way, I am going to 1/2 price books to look for this series, so thank you for the recommendation.

I just discovered Robyn Carr, too! I finished Woman's Own earlier this week...could hardly put it down. I think it is one of her older works, but a great read!

Carol said...

Plan to look her up in the library. Always looking for a new author.

I would love a chance too~ I haven't been reading near as much this summer as I usually do. I read just about anything I get my hands on and just finished a Debbie Macomber book and passed it on to the thrift shop. Wish I'd have thought of a giveaway! ;-)
