Give Away! A Book!

I have finished the novel. The Christian romance novel printed LARGE. And published by Harlequin! Seriously. It took me awhile to stop laughing and start reading after I found that. And it took all of one evening to read. Seriously. Must be the large print.

What did I think of this book? A nice romance novel. Not a lot of substance. But well done for the genre, I guess. Nice twists and turns. But I didn't tear up once. And the love interests frustrated me with their lack of depth. Argh. Romance is so not for me. At least the novels aren't. Well. Ask my Hunny. Maybe it's not overall. Hard to say.

Now, friend bloggers, this book can be yours. Restless Hearts (Love Inspired)
is certainly Christian in nature, though shallow at best. The romance itself leaves something to be desired. I won't tell you exactly how many passionate kisses were shared, but it's less than a handful. The author does a nice job of building the tension between the two characters. I didn't put the book down, anyway. And it seems this is one in a series, if I'm not mistaken. Something about the Flanagan family, of which the main character is part.

Leave a comment, please, if you'd like this book. I'll send you my copy, only read ONCE, in LARGE print. And I'll send you my AARP card with it. Puh-lease. I'll also choose the lucky reader randomly. If you don't want the book, just let me know in your comment. I'll probably still send it to you if you win, anyway. Heh. Just cuz I love you all.

Last chance to comment is Friday at noon - that being noon where ever you are. And no, there was nothing outstandingly ridiculous. Sorry. Just a benign romance novel.

Until I write again ...

Hey - I am always up for a new book. This one sounds perfect for when I need soemthing to read which won't stress my poor, tired brain!

Please don't give me this book. I beg of you. I think Trisha wants it. I vote Trishia!

Karen said...

Wow....sounds like it was worth the read.... I just pawned a book like that off on my mother. Of course, she loved it. She is out looking for the sequal. (Eyes rolling) When I finished it, all I could think was, there is a 3 hours of my life I will never get back.

I vote for Trisha. I don't want it either;) But thanks just the same!

Thank you for the thought, but please let someone else enjoy this lovely work of fiction.

I don't know if this is anything others have encountered, but after being married and having a kid for X years, a few passionate kisses just aren't going to make my world spin. I don't know what would. Maybe a plot line involving a cryogenic storage unit where the protagonists could safely deposit their children so they could talk to each other for five. freaking. minutes. without hearing screams or being interrupted? And then, you know, after they'd gotten to chat long enough that they weren't strangers anymore, maybe they could progress to something exciting like bowling or holding hands.

I probably wouldn't need my bifocals to read the LARGE print. I'm just saying.

You are hilarious. Here's my paraphrase: I read this book. It wasn't so good. Who wants it?
I'll comment for giggles, though.

If you want a GOOD Christian romance, read Francine Rivers. (you probably have already) The Mark of the Lion series is my favorite, and then Redeeming Love.

OK, I am 53, could be a member of AARP, and need the big print, so I will take the book!!!

I love your blog, by the way!!

God Bless~
