I hope you’ll subscribe, and then leave a comment below to enter the giveaway. If you already subscribe, just mention that in your comment and I will put your name in the drawing!  This giveaway is for US readers only.

The May winner was: Karen – mylittlebirdie (at) yahoo (dot) com. Please contact me with your mailing address so I can send your books. Karen won two Christy Award finalists: Secrets She Kept by Cathy Gohlke and The Wood’s Edge by Lori Benton.

The books for the June Giveaway are:

The Mistress of Tall Acre by Laura Frantz. Booklist says: “Her characters pop to life on the page, and her vivid descriptions add realistic historical depth.” I loved this story and highly recommend it to you!

    I have read The Mistress of Tall Acre – such a wonderful novel, I absolutely loved it (the little daughter is such a fabulous secondary character!). I haven’t read The Beautiful Pretender yet, but it’s definitely on my TBR list as I’ve loved her previous fairytale retellings.

    I love both authors! Laura Frantz’ books were recently put on Audible. So excited about that! Hope I win the drawing. Thanks for the opportunity.

    But he way, I do not like contemporary fiction in most cases, but I loved your book Surrendered Hearts, which I read years ago before I became a fan. I also really enjoyed the Governess of Highland Hall, which is my preferred genre, historical fiction. Keep up the great writing!
