Birds in the Air- Book Giveaway!

The author of this book, Frances O'Roark Dowell asked if I'd review her book and I said yes, but I'd love to give one away to one of my blog readers and she agreed!
From her website:

"When Emma Byrd moves into the house of her dreams in the small mountain community of Sweet Anne’s Gap, she knows that making friends may prove to be her biggest challenge. Her husband loves his new job and her kids are finding their way at school. But Emma — no natural when it comes to talking to strangers — will have to try a little harder, especially after the sweet, white-haired neighbor she first visits slams the door in her face."

Yikes! If that doesn't suck you right in!! LOL  It was a fun late summer read and I could relate in so many ways!! It was such an enjoyable book! I wish I lived in a town called Sweet Anne's Gap.

If you want Frances to send you your own copy please leave a comment and I'll draw a name on Monday. If you cannot wait to read it, then you can find a copy right HERE on Amazon!
