I'm pleased to be hosting two book giveaways this week from authors I've mentioned here before, and even more exciting because the authors themselves are donating the books!
First up, a new novel from Nicole Baart:
Nicole is a fellow Iowan who lives in a neighboring town, and I've had the privilege to talk with her on a couple different occasions. I even asked her to speak at our local MOPS group this past year, and she was as articulate a speaker as she is a writer.
I read Nicole's first two novels a few years ago, and I confess I don't remember much about the stories. This newest one, however, I COULD NOT put down. I emailed Nicole immediately after closing the cover on the last page, and I told her I was blown away by the story and amazed by her talent. This story was a great read, and I think it would also make a compelling movie. Achingly real characters and a plot that draws you in so that you just have to know what happens next.
I will caution that this book is rated PG-13 for language and mature themes. Nicole's initial books were published by Tyndale, but she went a different route with this one. You can find a synopsis and additional reviews by clicking on the above link.
If you would like to be entered to win this book, please leave a comment on this post. I'd love to hear what you've been reading! A winner will be selected on Wednesday.
