Too Many Good Books this Summer with GIVEAWAY

I never thought I'd see that as a bad thing. I don't, until I have so many I have to tell you about! Here are a couple of my new favorites! Both these books have exotic settings, which was so fun. Don't you want to escape with a summer read? And be sure to read all the way to the end for details on the giveaway!

With Wolfsbane, author Ronie Kendig ramps up the intense action I've come to expect in her Discarded Heroes series. Add in a love triangle and mistakes that could break the relationship, and I was left with a book I couldn't put down. This is a story of brokenness and healing. Add in electrically-charged romance and twists so complex I felt like a pretzel -- all within a fast-paced military thriller -- and you have the perfect suspense novel that will tug at your heart as it compels you to read one more chapter. I hated to see this book end!

Next up is the Amish Nanny, a novel by Leslie Gould and Mindy Starns Clark. I LOVED the Amish Midwife, so the moment this book hit my mailbox, I scarfed it up. The other books I was in the middle of just had to wait until I could read Ada's story. (And now I can't wait for book three which must be Ellen's story!)

With this story, Ada must travel to Switzerland with friends to help redeem her families history and a promise made over one hundred years earlier. In the process she must decide what she wants for her future. Who hasn't felt trapped by others expectations of you? Who hasn't felt trapped by a past they couldn't control? Who hasn't wanted a chance to be more than what people say you can be? When everything Ada desires is stripped away, she gets to choose what her future will be. Is she willing to risk or will she stay in her safe yet unfulfilling life? With this book, I felt like I was on the cargo ship crossing the Atlantic. I felt like I journeyed to the small towns in the Alps. It was like a vacation with several friends that I got to know better through the trip. LOVED it!

I'm delighted to have an extra copy of the Amish Nanny to giveaway. Just leave a comment stating where you'd love to travel and how you'd get there.

I would love to travel to Germany to look up my family's history. My husband is mostly from Germany as well, so we would like to see if we can find where our respective great great grandparents came from.

I would like to travel to Ireland by boat. I think it would be cool to take a boat across the Atlantic Ocean to Ireland. Thank you so much for the chance to win this book. It sounds great. I would love to read it. Thanks again.

I would like to travel across the U.S. by rail. Picking up books along the way that tell the stories of our American Heritage. Seeing our land through new yet 'old' eyes!

I'd love to travel to Prince Edward Island, the home of Anne of Green Gables. I'd take the train as far as I could, and then probably have to ferry across. Once there, I would go on the bike tours that they have around the island. Oh, makes me want to book a trip right now.
I absolutely loved The Amish Midwife, so I'm looking forward to reading this one too!
Thanks, Cara.

Europe would be nice I'd have to fly but once I got there take public transit.

I would like to go to England by airplane. It would be a faster way to travel, then I'd have time to do more sight seeing.

OK, lets see so MANY places to choose but I would have to say I would like to go to Italy by airplane. This might sound funny but I love Italian food so if I go over there I might come back 20 pounds heavier so I would stay away from the food or either walk everywhere I went. So it looks like I will be walking. Thanks. momma9905 (at) gmail (dot) com HOPE THIS CONTEST HASNT ENDED IF NOT PLEASE ENTER ME IN FOR THE CHANCE TO WIN THE AMISH NANNY.
