Giveaway #3 Navy Seal Noel, by Liz Johnson

A Lethal Reunion:  Abducted by a drug cartel, scientist Jessalynn McCoy's orders are simple-produce a deadly toxin, or be killed.  Trapped with no options, she's desperate for help...she just never expected it from Will Gumble.  The boy who let her down years ago is now a navy SEAL.  She trusts his skills, his experience.  Yet trusting him is a struggle.  Will's Christmas wish is to heal their damaged relationship and get them to safety.  But time is running out and the stakes keep rising.  Any mistake could mean the difference between facing the holidays together or apart forever.

This Love Inspired Suspense by Liz Johnson is the perfect quick read if you need a little break after or during the holiday rush!  Fast paced and most definitely filled with suspense you'll want to keep turning the pages faster and always, Liz Johnson delivers.

You can feel the fear and the severity of the situation that Jessalynn is in, you can also feel her pain and her reluctance to forgive and trust Will, but yet, you just can't help but root for Will, even tough guys need our help, right?

A very fun read, a great stocking stuffer for a book lover!  How would you like to win a copy?!

Giveaways....I have failed....Book Review and giveaway #2

I know, I know...I promised a week of giveaways, and I have failed miserably.....but...all is not lost, we're just going to stretch that week a bit!

So....I'm not going to waste any more on my list is An Amish Second Christmas by Tricia Goyer, and this one is going to be a super speedy waste no time entering!

First of all...let's do the review, because that's important!

An Amish Second Christmas ....4 books in one!

I am in love with this book, the 4 stories in this collection will bring the Christmas spirit to you in some very sweet and real stories, and if you enjoy Christmas, what's better than that?  A Second Christmas of course! 

In the first story, When Christmas Comes Again, by Beth Wiseman Katherine knows the first Christmas without Elias will be hard for her and the children.  But when a mysterious Englischer appears with photographs of her late husband, Katherine begins to wonder what other blessing Christmas could have in store.

Next, we have Her Christmas Pen Pal, by Ruth Reid.  Joy was expecting a wedding proposal from Henry; what she got instead was news of another woman.  But when her heartfelt letter to a cousin ends up in the hands of a young cabinetmaker, an unexpected correspondence between two strangers gets interesting fast.

In A Gift For Anne Marie, by Kathleen Fuller Anne Marie and Nathaniel have been friends since they were kids.  Now things are ways everyone else predicted long ago.  But when her mother suddenly decides to remarry in another state, Anne Marie's new chapter with Nathaniel looks doomed to end before it begins.

And last but not least, The Christmas Aprons, by Tricia Goyer Vanilla crumb pie has been Esther's mem's calling card for decades.  But when Esther finally gets her hands on the secret recipe, she discovers that vanilla crumb pie is more than just's bachelor bait.

A week of goodies and review/giveaway #1 A Christmas Gift for Rose, by Tricia Goyer

I have decided to do a week of giveaways.  Feel free to enter them all, or just one, check back each day to see what's new!

I am a part of Tricia Goyers 'Christmas Team', and today for my first giveaway is her beautiful book,
A Christmas Gift for Rose

About the book
Rose turned her back on the man she loves after he assisted the Englisch during World War II - only to discover she's an Englischer herself.

Inspired by a true story, A Christmas Gift for Rose is a heartwarming story of sacrifice, deep love, and discovering one's true identity.

Born in the midst of the hardships of The Great Depression, Rose grew up in Berlin, Ohio, in the arms of a loving Amish family.  But she is overwhelmed by self-doubt when she learns that she was born Englisch and abandoned when her family moved West in search of work.

Was she meant to be Amish or would she have been better off growing up with her own kind - Englischers?  When the man she loves leaves her behind, Rose is certain he left for good.  Yet Rose discovers sometimes our greatest gifts are the ones we fear.

My thoughts
I loved this book.  This is a quick read, but a very good one.  Perfect for a little R and R during the busy holiday season, and this sweet little hard cover will look beautiful on your coffee table, your guests may just pick up this book and get lost in an Amish winter wonderland.

Rose goes through some difficult times as she deals with the truth of her past, as well as a bit of confusion over her boyfriend whom everyone has told her to forget.  This story is full of lessons in faith, love and hope.
