Ready for Spring Giveaway!

The winner of the book and Starbucks Gift Card is LoisAnn.  Please email me your mailing address:thegrossmans@carolina.rr.com and it will be in the mail.  Happy Reading!


In celebration of Spring and all the wonders it entails  I am giving away a copy of a fabulous Christian fiction book that is based in the Outer Banks of North Carolina and I am also going to include a Starbucks Gift Card.

Alice J. Wisler's third novel Hatteras Girl is an incredible book to  enjoy this Spring/Summer and will have you dreaming of the summer sun and ocean air.
 
This book follows approximately a year in the life of Jackie Donovan who is a single lady close to the age of 30 working a reporter for a local publication.  Jackie's days are consumed with interviewing local businesses for her work, going on blind dates and caring for her best friends son who is Kindergarten age while her best friend juggles the responsibility of working two part-time jobs and being a widow.

Reading this book is like sitting down and learning about the details of the life of a close friend.  The main character, Jackie Donovan, is lovely and possesses incredible loyalty, love of family and dreams that she desires to fulfill.  Most women will find her easy to relate to as Jackie struggles with family commitments, desire for a life partner and the dream of owning her own Bed and Breakfast.  Jackie's friends and family are quirky, real and experience love and loss.

As you follow Jackie's decisions and revelations you can see how the hand of God protects and guides and gives her the desires of her heart.   I highly recommend this work of Christian Fiction by Bethany House.

If you would like to be entered in to the drawing for a copy of this book please leave a comment indicating your favorite vacation spot.  This can be a vacation destination you have enjoyed in person or one on your dream list!  I am also going to throw in a $10 Starbucks card to give the opportunity to take a friend  for a nice hot or iced drink.

The winner will be announced on Monday, March 21st and entries will be accepted until 10:00 a.m. on the 21st.

Happy Reading and blessings to you today, Caroline

Don't need to include me in the give away, but my dream vacation spot would be somewhere in Scandinavia or Iceland watching the Northern Lights with my husband and children. :)

Becky, thank you for the comment. I love New Zealand (where you are at present), but also love St. Lucia as that is where Glenn and I had our honeymoon. Much love to you, Caroline

Our favorite get away...a Caribbean Island...or any place warm & by the water. We visited the OuterBanks for years so have lots of fond memories there.

Oh how I love vacation! I love New York - the bustling city for great shopping and broadway shows, and then finishing it off by going upstate by one of the beautiful lakes to relax.

I'd love to go to New England (especially Maine) and camp in a different spot every day or two for a month :) Katherine
