  38. Hi, Carrie!

    I’m so thankful to know that you have finished your chemo treatments and so all will be right with the world.

    NO OCEAN TOO WIDE was a spectacular story that not only fascinated me, but educated me as well. How sad to think that so many parents lost control over their children’s lives. My review was posted in numerous places, including on my dear friend’s blog, “Unwrapping Romance,” owned by author Amy Valentini who writes historical novels. She was also very intrigued by your book and wants to read it for herself.

    Thank you for this great giveaway. I’ve always wanted to read and review Becky Wade’s novels and hope I will be the one to do so.

    Take care!

  39. The best book I read this summer was The King’s Mercy by Lori Benton. Despite being half Scottish and having visited Culloden, I had no idea that so many Jacobites ended up in North Carolina! I’ve since learned that Flora MacDonald (of Bonnie Prince Charlie fame) also lived in North Carolina for a time!

  40. I have read so many good books this summer. Your book,Yours Truly,Thomas, and Where Dandelions Bloom would have to be a few of my favorites

  41. I really enjoyed No Ocean Too Wide…… but the latest read of mine was The Express Bride by Kimberly Woodhouse, an interesting story of the Pony Express.

  42. I really enjoyed reading “Formula of Deception” by Carrie Parks. Thanks for encouraging me to read these 3 Becky Wade books and for the giveaway.
    I am sorry you are having to go through chemo and am praying or you now.

  43. Thanks for offering this giveaway! I love Becky Wade’s books! My favorite read from this summer is Now And Then And Always by Melissa Tagg.

  44. Thank you for the sweet giveaway! Becky Wade is such a wonderful author. Your book No Ocean Too Wide was amazing, looking forward to the rest of the series! I’ve read some pretty amazing books this summer. I would add Amanda Dykes Whose Waves These Are. Congratulations on the well deserved Carol Award nomination for Across the Blue!

  45. I was lucky to receive an ARC of The Golden Hour by Beatriz Williams and thoroughly enjoyed it at the beach ! Thanks for offering this giveaway. I have found many new authors that i adore by entering giveaways.

  46. Hi, Carrie! Best Wishes for all releases and thank you for offering this wonderful giveaway! If you are a fan of Regency Romance, and you enjoy “second-chance” love stories, then you will find “A Bride for Lord Albany”, a delightful novella from author Angelina Jameson, to be just your cup of tea.

  47. I have had some amazing books this summer, my favorite has been Things You Save In A Fire.
    Thank you so much the chance!

  48. Thanks for having a giveaway! Probably my favorite book to read this summer was Karen Witemeyer’s More Than Words Can Say. It was sweet and fun, and I love that the heroine was portrayed as a curvy, more full figured woman instead of a petite size two type woman. Not that there’s anything wrong with being a size two, but for most of us that’s not something to which we can easily relate. It was a nice change of pace.

  49. Fragments of Fear by Carrie Stuart Parks. She’s an actual forensic artist which makes her stories that much more exciting.

  50. I’m so glad you’re recovering well. I’m looking forward to your newest book, it’s in the stack! I’ve read Randy Ingermanson’s craft books this summer as well as several fiction books. I really enjoyed the Becky Wade novels I read.

  51. Thank you for the giveaway! I have read many great books this summer, mostly fiction, but the book I just finished stands out as a favorite. “Quiet Strength” by football coaching legend Tony Dungy was an amazing read and very inspirational.

  52. Oh, I’ve wanted to read these books! I loved the prequel novella. Anyway, one of the books I’ve enjoyed this summer was The Noble Guardian by Michelle Griep.

  53. This giveaway sounds great! I’ve read one book by Becky Wade and really enjoyed it.
    One book that I’ve read this Summer that really stands out is an older book, The Auschwitz Escape
    by Joel C. Rosenberg. To say I enjoyed it seems to make it sound all “light and lovely”. All the horrors of Auschwitz and the Holocaust is something that can just rip your heart apart. But it was very well written and the story was touching and one I won’t forget anytime soon. So some books by Becky Wade will be very enjoyable to read! Thanks for the opportunity!

  54. This year I’ve blown my goodreads reading challenge out of the water (91/75)! One of my favorite summer reads was Sold Into Freedom by novelist Carole Towriss. I obtained my copy through my library’s Hoopla app. Both the voice performance and the storyline were wonderful.

    Confession Time: I started reading a Christmas novella in July. I enjoyed Kristi Ann Hunter’s portion of The Christmas Heirloom Collection. (She was a new-to-me author.)

  55. I enjoyed Dee Henderson’s novella “Betrayed” this summer, as well as “Sweet on You” by Becky Wade. Thanks for the dntry!

  56. Hi Carrie, I really enjoyed reading “Room of Marvels” by James Bryan Smith. Such a powerful story and read. Keep a tissue handy and be prepared to chat with others about the book, it’s a definite book to share!

  57. I’m reading the Guideposts series called, “Secrets of Wayfarers Inn”.
    There are only 5 books out and I can’t wait until book #6 is published.
    Thanks for entering me in your giveaway.

  58. I have read very little this summer due to a lot of renovation projects. The two most impactful books I have read include: your book NO OCEAN TOO WIDE and THE MEDALLION by Cathy Gohlke. I appreciate the research both authors have done to include real truths in a fictional book!!! Love both authors!!!

  59. Wow, I’ve read so many books this summer! However, I’m going to say it’s either the Chapel Cove series that I’ve read, tied with Driftwood Bay, since I can’t list all of the books I’ve read!!

  60. Hi Carrie one of the books that I have really enjoyed this summer is A Fire Sparkling by Julianna Maclean she is such a good writer and all of her books have been my fav also The road she left behind by Christin Noldi thos was another wonderful one. I could go on and on about books I read in the last month but those are 2 that really got my gut . Have a good rest of the summer!

  61. I adore this series!! Sweet On You being one of the books I’ve enjoyed recently. I also have loved Now and Then and Always by Melissa Tagg, More Than Words Can Say by Karen Witemeyer, Storm Rising by Ronie Kendig, Knox and Tate by Susan May Warren and The Killing Tide by Dani Pettrey!!

  68. One of my favorite reads this summer has been tThe Chateau Of Secrets by Melanie Dobson. A very good book! Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  69. I do quite a bit of reading during the summer, because I participate in the Adult Summer Reading program through my local public library. Sometimes, I have a hard time choosing just one book.
    Since I have to choose just one, I would have to say, “The Tinderbox” by Beverly Lewis. I believe I have read some of Becky wade’s books.

  70. I enjoyed the first two books in Sarah Sundin’s series Sunrise at Normandy, “The Sea Before Us” and “The Sky Above Us.”

  71. So many books have made a strong impression this summer. Not all have been new but all were memorable for all the right reasons. ‘The Edge of Mercy’ by Heidi Chiavaroli, ‘A Match Made in Texas: A Novella Collection’, ‘Tiny Dancer’ by Patricia Hickman, ‘The Captive Heart’ by Michelle Griep, ‘Whispers in the Reading Room’ by Shelley Gray, and ‘Before the Rain Falls’ by Camille Di Maio,

  73. I’ve just enjoyed being able to read in general!! It has been a busy and hectic year so reading time isn’t as much as I’d like for it to be. I am currently reading A Portrait of Emily Price by Katherine Rhea and I enjoy the Italy settings in it.
    Praying for you ♡

  74. Honestly, it was yours! No Ocean Too Wide. The story was intense and I had no idea about child emigration! I am always entertained AND educated by your stories. ♥️

  77. One of my favorite books that I have read this summer is I’ve Got You’re Number by Sophie Kinsella. I am a sucker for contemporary romance and anything by Sophie Kinsella fits in that category.

  78. I just finished Dollface and Park Avenue Summer by Renee Rosen and now I’m reading her White Collar Girl. Thanks for the giveaway chance!

  79. I can’t choose just one. I loved Wooing Cadie McCaffrey by Bethany Turner, but I also really enjoyed The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond by Jaime Jo Wright. Two very different books, both by exceptional authors.

  80. This summer I read “The Lost Castle” by Kristy Cambron!!!! It was one of the BEST books I have ever read! The perfect cross of historical fiction, romance and the added bonus of faith in there too. Definitely would recommend to anyone! Also, thank you for the opportunity for this give away! I’ve loved Becky Wade since I first read “My Stubborn Heart”! 😀

  81. I would love to win these books! They look great!! I have read Kate Stradlings “Kingdom of Ruses” Kate is a great new author I discovered this summer and it’s fun to read her books!

  82. My sister just introduced me to her books and I have read the first two in this series! So excited to read the newest one!

  83. I love these books and would love to win them! I’m reading The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah for the second time currently and loving every second.

  84. I have read so many books this summer, it’s hard to pick a favorite. But More Than Words Can Say by Karen Witemeyer is definitely up there!

  85. I too have read a lot this summer but the one I loved the most and by the description of the book would not normally be something I would choose to read but on the recommendation of a friend I read Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens and I loved it.

  86. This summer I read Great Expectations by Dickens for the first time. I really enjoyed it. I also listened to an excellent audiobook reading version at the same time.

  87. I have read so many good books this summer. I guess Beth White’s A Rebel Heart is a good one to pick. Hard to choose one.

  88. I have been listening to The Year of Discovery series by M. L. Hamilton, narrated by Kelley Hazen, and it’s fantastic! I just finished July and I’m looking forward to getting my hands on August.

  89. I’ve read so many I enjoyed this summer, but one of my favorites, was Married to a Stranger by Laura V. Hilton.

  90. Thank you for the chance to win!
    My favorite read so far this summer is the book I am reading right now. I am only a couple chapters into Romanov by Nadine Brandes, and it is so good! The royal family has essentially been kidnapped and sent into exile and their Bolshevik captors are sending them somewhere unknown. It is a historical fantasy, so there will be some magical elements that have yet to show themselves. I believe the family’s Matryoshka doll will hold the key, but it has come up missing!

  91. Hard to find time to read this summer but did enjoy Karen Witemeyers, More Than Meets the Eye. Would love to read the books in this giveaway! Smiles!

  92. I enjoyed Dakota Child by Linda Ford. I am going back and reading the back-list of authors that I have found. enjoy your books as well.

  93. My favorite book from this summer has been A Thousand Perfect Notes by CG Drews (@paperfury on instagram). It was sad and made me cry, but it was also hopeful and sweet. <3

  94. I read Sweet on You, and it was the best book I’d read since…Falling for You. haha 😉 I especially loved the whole “best friends” aspect of the romance, I feel like it added more depth to the story!
