Winner Announced - Book Giveaway - Once in a Blue Moon/Woman in Red

Congratulations to Kathy, katwithpat@ !!!!!

You won the free books!

Please email me your complete address within 2 days, or a new winner will be announced...thanks.

I am an avid reader, as many of you know. In fact, so much so, that I actually gave it up for YEARS ( yes many, many years ) of my life. I would stay up all hours of the night reading, because I couldn't put books down and then struggle the next day to stay awake. I know, I am sad!

Well, that was years ago, and I once again read religiously. Sometimes it is new books, but I am not opposed to picking up an old favorite and rereading it. I have noticed, since I am a quick reader, I will often find parts I missed or didn't catch the importance of the first read through.

Regardless of what I am currently reading, I am always on the look for a new author that I may enjoy.

So, when One 2 One Network offered to send me a free copy of Eileen Goudge's new book, Once in a Blue Moon, I jumped on the opportunity. I was excited to see if I would be stumbling upon another author I couldn't put down!

I must say, the book was a quick read and kept me interested. It centered around the lives of two sisters who were separated and children and put into foster families. The story tells the story of the two as they rekindle their relationship as adults after leading two very different lives.

For me, I enjoyed reading both sides of the story. To hear two different perspectives on a given situation can allow every person to step back in their own lives and try to view something thru someone else's eyes. It also showed the depth that your past can play into "current" decisions. And, it is true, how you were raised will affect decisions you make throughout your life.

OK, maybe I am analyzing it too much, but my point.....I enjoyed the book.

It wasn't until the end of the story that I was disappointed. Often times, when I finish a story, I am sad it is over, but not disappointed. But, with this book, I did feel the ending was lacking. I just needed more detail or closure to the end.

All in all, though, it was a good book. For those who enjoy page turners and a quick read, you will like this book.

So, I am excited that One 2 One Network is also providing a free copy of the book Once in a Blue Moon for a Giveaway, as well as a copy of Eileen Goudge's Bestseller Woman in Red. So, you will have two books to read ( you will have to let me know what you think of Woman in Red ).

I would love to read "Domestic Affairs;" I love stories about how childhood experiences affect friendships.

"Once in a Blue Moon" is set in a coastal town that I am familiar with which always makes a story seem more personal and engaging. It would be my first choice for a great read by Eileen Goudge.

Serena said...

I am definitely interested in those books! They both look great! Romance, but it doesn't look it it would just be smut.

Amanda said...

I would like to read Otherwise Engaged. It sounds cute! Thanks for the giveaway.

Once in a Blue Moon. I'm familiar with what life is like in these small coastal towns, & also like stories about the relationships between sisters.

Something Warm From the Oven and The Diary

The Diary sounds like a good story and I wonder what secrets the sisters learn about their Mother. Something Warm from the Oven sounds neat and I am always on the lookout for new recipes.
