Hi Friends,

This month I’ll be giving away two historical romance novels, A Lasting Impression by Tamera Alexander and Shadows of Ladenbrooke Manor by Melanie Dobson. To enter the giveaway, sign up for my email newsletter (box on the right), and then leave a comment below. If you’re already a subscriber, just mention that in your comment. Thanks for staying connected! For more information about these books just click on the covers.


Shadows of Ladenbrooke Manor: Award-winning author Melanie Dobson seamlessly weaves the past and present together, fluidly unraveling the decades-old mystery and reveals how the characters are connected in shocking ways. Set in a charming world of thatched cottages, lush gardens, and lovely summer evenings, this romantic and historical mystery brings to light the secrets and heartaches that have divided a family for generations.

A Lasting Impression: Set at Nashville’s historic Belmont Mansion, a stunning antebellum manor built by Adelicia Acklen, A Lasting Impression is a sweeping love story about a nation mending after the Civil War, the redemption of those wounded, and the courage of a man and woman to see themselves–and each other–for who they really are.

I hope you enjoy a wonderful summer with lots of sunshine and good books!

Blessings and happy reading,

    Oh my, what a lovely giveaway! I read, enjoyed, and reviewed “Shadows of Ladenbrooke Manor,” however, I am sad to say that I obviously missed reading “A Lasting Impression.” Would be tickled to read that one. I look forward to more books from you as well, Carrie.

    Many thanks for your generous giveaway!

    I’ve read several by Tamara Alexander and always enjoyed them. Melanie Dobson is a new author for me — would love to explore her books, too! Blessings as your new book is off at the Editor’s — I’m sure it won’t be long before it is back in your hands for final “tweaking”. In the meantime, enjoy the summer and get some relaxing in!!
