2017 Spring into Romance Giveaway Hop


Spring is here! What better time to share our favorite reads for the season? Join in and tell everyone about what new reads you're excited about!

Spring has finally arrived.  The sun is out, the squirrels are running around forging and the birds are out chirping.  Spring is also a time for love.  Okay, so anytime is a time for love.  But Spring brings about new awakenings and new beginnings.  This Spring brings new releases from several of my favorite authors.

I know when you think of Spring, Christmas is the LAST thing on your mind.  However, Ginny Baird released the third book in her Christmas Town series.  Let me tell you, even though the book came out in March, which technically is Spring, it was the perfect read.  It shows that love is more powerful than magic and that if you have the purest of hearts anything is possible, even talking to animals.  Only You at Christmas was a sweet read and had me wishing I could turn back time.

The month of March had me discovering a new to me author.  I’m not usually a fan of new adult romances but the blurb for Marie Meyer’s Long Road Home called to me.  The book was more than I expected and turned out to be one of my favorite books this year.  Later this month, Marie will release another book, Live Out Loud.  This is the story of a young deaf woman finding love through music.  I’m sure this is going to be an emotional story and I can’t wait to read it.

April finds Victoria James returning with The Baby Bombshell, the second book in her Shadow Creek, Montana series.  This second chance romance promises to bring on the water works and a few surprises.

A bad boy who turns his life around, by becoming a Marine returns to his hometown to prove the naysayers wrong and reconnect with “the one” in Samanthe Beck’s Emergency Attraction.  The third book in her Love Emergency series is a standalone read and promises to be a hot story with deep emotion thrown in.

May finds one of my favorite cozy mystery writers, Jenn McKinlay, returning to her romance roots with About a Dog.  This second chance, contemporary romance features a little dog who apparently has a matchmaking gene.

In May, Catherine Bybee also concludes her Most Likely To...series with Making it Right.  This story promises to add suspense with a revelation from the heroine’s past.  As with all of Catherine’s books, I’m sure this is going to be a page turner from beginning to end.

Now that I’ve given you some books that were or are on my reading radar this Spring, I want to do a little giveaway.  This book doesn’t conjure up Spring, but it is related to one of the books coming out this Spring.  If you follow the blog, then you know that Victoria James is probably my all time favorite romance author.  She’s definitely my auto-buy author.  Christmas with the Sheriff is the first book in the Shadow Creek, Montana series and connects with the opening scene of The Baby Bombshell.  If you’re looking for romance and to have your heart strings tugged, this is a book for you.  Oh, and there’s this adorable little girl who seems to have her daddy wrapped around her finger.  I’m talking she convinces him they need all new furniture for their house.  Poor Chase may be a tough as nails Sheriff, but when it comes to a seven-year-old little girl, he’s powerless.  You can read my 5-star review of Christmas with the Sheriff here.

This paperback giveaway is open to US mailing addresses only.  Good luck.

    1. Thanks. I use to have this thing of NOT read Christmas stories until November. But last year I had to read some in October. Now, Ginny has this series that's coming out every three or four months and I'm addicted. I just have to be able to make sugar cookies and I'm good.

      Good luck with the giveaway. I'm sure you'll enjoy Victoria's books.

    2. I'm the same way, it was only seasonal. But there is always such a good vibe to these kinds of stories and I like them for a pick up when I am feeling down.

  5. I'm looking forward to reading "The Night The Lights Went Out" by Karen White. I usually only read Christmas books around the holidays, kind of gets me in the holiday spirit.

    1. Sounds like a good book. When do you usually start reading your Christmas stories? Publishers usually start releasing them in September. Do you wait until November or after Thanksgiving?
