Did I Notice Your Book?


Anyone for a writing experiment?

I'm participating in the Did I Notice Your Book Blog Hop which began with Ciara Knight 
This is the first time I've participated in this and I'm looking forward to the response and seeing how this works!
With all the new tools out there to monitor book sales and blurbs mentioned about their books, we are highlighting a new book each week. I’ll post it in the morning. If by the end of the day that author finds her book on this post I want her or him to tell us how they discovered it; word of mouth through the close network of writers, a Yahoo group mention, or through some new fangled Google tool.

Now, how will I choose this book each week? It will be a book that caught my attention. As a reader, I will keep an eye out for something that either provoked me to read the blurb, look at the author’s blog, or purchase said book.

Before I reveal my choice I want to clarify that this author has no idea that I’ve chosen his/her book!

The book I noticed is Gifts of Grace by Lynn Bulock

 When Carl Brenner saved a struggling widow and her small children from spending Christmas in a cold, ramshackle farmhouse, he'd had no idea how his lonely life would be forever changed. The storekeeper may have given Grace Mallory a fresh start and renewed her faith in God, but she made his house into a home.

One filled with laughter, singing and the best home cooking in all of Missouri. And now Carl prayed for God's gift of grace once more. For how else would he ever find the key to unlock Grace's precious heart?

I noticed this book on eHarlequin.com. The story interested me because it is the classic story of a woman in need, being rescued and hopefully a happily ever after for all. 

You can buy Gifts of Grace at eharlequin. Click here.

What do you think? Does this kind of story interest you? Would you read this book?

I'm so excited you are participating, Christy. I LOVE Christmas reads, so this one is a must for me. BTW - My apologies Emery Lee's link was changed last night to her new blog. If someone stops by here and would like to see the historical fiction category go to http://georgianjunkie.wordpress.com. I can't wait to see if Lynn finds her book here.

Christy, I like the snowy cover! I always enjoy a nice Christmas read.

Hi Christy, first time visitor here.

Sounds like a good family book to read. Like a modern day Little House on the Prairie. Could be made into a Hallmark Channel movie. Thanks for the review.

The book sounds quite interesting. Thanks for bringing it to everyone's attention.

I don't read a lot of inspirational fiction but the Christmas theme would certainly draw me in. I agree with Stephen that it sounds a little like a Hallmark Channel movie :)

Now's the good time to read something like this.

Hi, Christy! I'm just checking in. I'll Tweet again. Hope the author finds their book. :)

I think Stephen has a point. This would make a great Hallmark movie. I LOVE those!

It's a little outside of my typical read. But I'd buy something like this for my mom, or sister, to read.

Hope the author finds the book.

Ah, this sounds like the PERFECT Christmas read. I'm putting it on my list. :)
