Win a Copy of “The Horse Boy” by Rupert Isaacson on Audio

the-horse-boy1 

Would you like to win a copy of “The Horse Boy” by Rupert Isaacson on audio? Here is some info about the book:

When his son Rowan was diagnosed with autism, Rupert Isaacson was devastated, afraid he might never be able to communicate with his child. But when Isaacson, a lifelong horseman, rode their neighbor’s horse with Rowan, Rowan improved immeasurably. He was struck with a crazy idea: why not take Rowan to Mongolia, the one place in the world where horses and shamanic healing intersected?

THE HORSE BOY is the dramatic and heartwarming story of that impossible adventure. In Mongolia, the family found undreamed of landscapes and people, unbearable setbacks, and advances beyond their wildest dreams. This is a deeply moving, truly one-of-a-kind story–of a family willing to go to the ends of the earth to help their son, and of a boy learning to connect with the world for the first time.

I will be giving away 3 copies of this book on May 25. Unfortunately winners are limited to the US and Canada…sorry about that. Make sure to comment for your chance to win!

Would you like to win a copy of “The Girl Who Stopped Swimming” by Joshilyn Jackson?  Here is some info about the book:

Lauren Gray Hawthorne needs to make things pretty, whether she’s helping her mother keep family skeletons in the closet or sewing her acclaimed art quilts. Her estranged sister, Thalia, is her opposite, an impoverished actress who prides herself on exposing the lurid truths lurking behind middle class niceties.

While Laurel‘s life seems neatly on track– a passionate marriage, a treasured daughter, a lovely suburban home– everything she holds dear is threatened the night she is visited by the ghost of her 13-year-old neighbor Molly. The ghost leads Laurel to the real Molly, floating lifelessly in the Hawthorne’s backyard pool. Molly’s death is an unseemly mystery that no one in her whitewashed neighborhood is up to solving. Laurel enlists Thalia’s help, even though she knows it comes with a high price tag.

Together, they set out on a life-altering journey that triggers startling revelations about their family’s haunted past, the true state of Laurel’s marriage, and the girl who stopped swimming.

I will be giving away 5 copies of this book. Unfortunately winners are limited to the US and Canada…sorry about that. I will be drawing the winners on May 3 so make sure to leave a comment. Please remember to have a valid email address so I know where to contact you and thanks!

Win A Copy Of Never Give Up By Joyce Meyer On Audio

never-give-up

Would you like to win a copy of Never Give Up by Joyce Meyer on audio?  Here is some info about the book:

“People who are called to greatness meet great challenges,” writes Joyce Meyer in this essential new book. She reminds us that we have the potential for greatness and provides practical, useful information about how to overcome the challenges we face.

In classic Joyce Meyer style, she provides proven “how-to’s” and practical methods along with her encouragement. Joyce has been there. She offers us the benefit of her own experience and helps us avoid the hazards on the way to realizing our dreams.

As we pursue the best in every area of our lives – health, family, finances, career, future, and all the plans God has for us – we will find the inspiration necessary to keep putting one foot in front of the other. No matter how weary we grow on the journey of everyday life, Joyce’s message will empower us to persevere through difficulties, and remind us in a variety of ways: “You can do it-whatever ‘it’ is for you– if you never give up.”

I  will be giving away 3 copies of this audiobook. Unfortunately winners are limited to the US and Canada…sorry about that. I will be drawing the winners on April 12 so make sure to leave a comment. Please remember to have a valid email address so I know where to contact you and thanks!

Montana Creeds: Logan by Linda Lael Miller

 mc-logan

Descendants of the legendary McKettrick family, the Creeds are renowned in Stillwater Springs, Montana—for raising hell…

After years of wandering, Logan Creed, a cowboy with a dusty law degree, has returned home. To put down roots, to restore his family’s neglected ranch…to have kids of his own proudly bearing the Creed name.

Divorced mom Briana Grant has heard the stories about her gorgeous neighbor. So Logan’s kindness with her young boys is a welcome surprise, especially when her ex reappears. And when an unknown enemy vandalizes her home, Logan shows Briana—and the folks of Big Sky country—just what he’s made of.

This is the first book that I have read by Linda Lael Millerand let me tell you…wow!  After making money with his self-help legal service, Logan Creed decides to return to his family ranch in Stillwater Springs.  The ranch has fallen into a state of disrepair since the death of his father, and even though there has been a falling out with his brothers, Dylan and Tyler, Logan wants to go back and bring the ranch back to the state it was in years prior.

What he doesn’t expect to encounter are Briana Grant and her two young sons, Josh and Alec.  After leaving the ranch to pursue his dreams, Dylan offered the use of his brothers’ house to Briana after her husband runs off leaving her to fend for herself.  The chemistry between Dylan and Briana is immediate, and the relationship that forms between them is as good as any romance that I have ever read.

The thing I find so extraordinary about the writing is that all of the characters are dysfunctional in some way, yet they find the person that best compliments them and fills the void in a way that is desperately needed.  This is definitely not the last book that I will read by this wonderful author!

 

Lily Kenyon left Stillwater Springs years ago, but has returned to help her father recover from a heart attack, and to try and make a fresh start.  Being a single mom isn’t easy, but she feels that Stillwater Springs might be the place for her to start a new life with her daughter, a place that has memories, both good and bad.

The Creed brothers have had problems, but nothing will keep them off of their ranch, trying to restore their family bond.  And Tyler is no different.  A former rodeo star, he is arrogant and thinks that people should look up to him for all of his accomplishments.  What he doesn’t expect is to have Lily Kenyon back in her life.  The history they have hangs heavy between the two – will they rekindle a flame that they thought went out years ago?

This is the second book in the Montana Creeds series and it is certainly not my last.  Ms. Miller has such an excellent way of writing her characters to make them jump off of the page, and the emotion that they exhibit is exceptional!  Watching these characters try and overcome there past and rooting them on was a joy.  I would highly recommend this book!
