book review and give away.


My latest book review from Thomas Nelson is the book " Love on a dime" by Cara Lynn James. This book is about a young women who is writing dime store novels under a different name as to keep her high society family away from public embarrassment. Woven into the book is also her own story of choosing between the one she loves and the one that has been chosen for her. She struggles between choosing what she knows she should to keep her and her family in the high society crowd, to what she knows God is calling her to do. I was not sure about this book when I first got it as I tend to like more modern stories, but with in the first few pages I was hooked. This book of romance, mystery, and true love is an easy fun summer read. I would highly recommend grabbing a copy for yourself to read while on vacation, by the pool, or just on warm summer night. I am looking forward to reading more in the serious as they are published.

Want to win a copy? Well just leave me comment below telling me your favorite activity or place to go as a family during the summer. Please comment before Midnight June 25. I will post the winner on Saturday the 26. Good luck.

My favorite summer activity is reading. During the school year all i have time for is textbooks and homework so it is nice to read books just for fun without having to analyse or write any papers about them!!
