W is for Wish You Were Here giveaway

Cover from Amazon


W is for Wish You Were Here giveaway

Giddy. That's how I would describe getting an advance reader copy of Author Beth K. Vogt's Wish You Were Here earlier this month. 

I couldn't wait to begin reading the Christian romance novel, but we had company for Easter weekend. So, I tweeted and Beth responded: 




Then, I remembered something I read from an interview (and/or blog post) from Susanna Hill Leonard. Light bulb moment — Laundry. I will do laundry!

Another round of tweets:


Turns out, I couldn't fold laundry during the visit. We enjoyed the company. Then, there was real laundry. After the machines were spinning, I began reading Wish You Were Here. I loved the book and hated to put it down. 

Here's a blurb about the book from the Howard Books/Simon & Schuster's author page:
Kissing the wrong guy days before her scheduled wedding leads Allison to become a runaway bride. But can it also lead to happily ever after?
Beth's writing had me hooked from the first time I met Allison in her wedding dress to the very last page. 

All this talk about travel during the A to Z challenge this month and reading Wish You Were Here has made me want to pack a bag for adventure. Since I couldn't do that, I put the advance copy I received of Beth's book and mailed it to a friend. The book is traveling. 

Don't fret. If you want to win an ebook or paperback, leave a comment by midnight (Mountain Standard Time) on May 1, when the book releases. I'll select a random winner.  

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received an advance reader copy of Wish You Were Here from Howard Books, a division of Simon & Schuster. The opinions expressed are my own.

  3. I received an advance copy, too, but I had to fight my husband over it! He really liked the male protagonist, and both of us enjoyed the fact that the ending wasn't super predictable. Beth really had me worried about the characters!

  10. I need another book on my TBR list like I need... another book on my TBR list. Still, you make it sound so good. And I love the cover.

    So, if I just happen to win, I'll find a way to reconcile myself to it.
