One more post!! Time for a giveaway!




I've gone blogging crazy today, but hey, it can't be helped, right?!

Time for another Pay It Forward Book Giveaway! This was started by Overwelmed with Joy, and if you will visit the link there, you will find more book giveaways as well as the rules of the fun.

This month's giveaway is The Stone Flower Garden by Deborah Smith. I really enjoyed this book; I read it on a trip to see my inlaw's and had a hard time putting it down the entire time! I want to tell you up front that this book has some wavy pages and some smudges on the cover, so it isn't in perfect condition, but what well-enjoyed book is? But I thought I'd let you know in case that sort of thing bothers you.


From the book cover:
For twenty-five years Darl Union and Eli Wade have held each other in their hearts. Darl and Eli were childhood friends in the small North Carolina town of Burnt Stand. Raised by her steely grandmother, Darl is the heir to the Hardigree Marble Company, which controls the town. Growing up, Darl was always taught to keep her distance from the townspeople--but she couldn't keep herself from loving Eli, a boy from the wrong side of the tracks whose father was a stonecutter for Hardigree Marble.

Eli fled Burnt Stand with his family one night after they were caught up in a mystery that years later has still never been solved. Darl's aunt Clara was found murdered--and Darl could never tell the truth about that night without tearing her own family apart.

But a secret buried is a secret that will one day be unearthed. And Darl knows she can't lie to Eli again. As the mystery at her family's heart comes to the surface a second time, Darl turns to the one person who might help--if she can ever get him to trust her again.


NOW! On to how to win! Just leave me a comment, any comment, on this post! I'll leave the comments open until February 29, Leap Day, and announce winner sometime the next day, March 1. How's that for easy?!
Don't forget to mosey over to Overwhelmed With Joy! to check out the other books available!
