Winners and a Christmas Romance Giveaway
Lots of winners to announce tonight! Congratulations to Caite F. of Linwood, NJ and Darcy O. from Apple Valley, MN, winners of My Nest Isn't Empty, It Just Has More Closet Space by Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Scottoline Serritella. Bradford G. Wheler's Dog Sayings goes to Charlotte W. of Covington, GA. Nedra W. of Lititz, PA won Cleo Coyle's Holiday Grind, and Brenda W. of Hattiesburg, MS will receive Christmas at The Mysterious Bookshop, compiled by Otto Penzler. I'll mail the Christmas mysteries tomorrow. The publicists will be sending the other books.
This week, I'm offering two Christmas romances I recently reviewed. You could win 'Twas the Night, the fun romance by Sandra Hill, Kate Holmes and Trish Jensen. Three men end up on the "Santa Brigade" bus, hoping to get to Maine for a friend's wedding. Along the way, they find love, but it's not an easy journey, particularly with the members of the senior center, who had known the boys since they were kids.
Or you could win Lisa Kleypas' Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor, the story of a little girl whose uncle takes her in when her mother dies in an accident. The little girl's wish for Christmas? She wrote Santa a letter asking for a mother.
So, which Christmas romance would you like to win, 'Twas the Night or Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor? You can enter to win both but I need separate entries. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your subject line should read either "Win 'Twas the Night" or "Win Friday Harbor." Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.
I'm working next Thursday night, so this contest will end a little earlier, Thursday, Dec. 9. at noon MT. The winners will be selected by random number generator. I'll notify the winners and mail the books the next day. Good luck!
