Book Giveaway, Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas

**Giveaway Closed, winner is Pegi, I posted on your blog, please email me at with your address**

New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas's new series begins during the most magical time of year

One rain-slicked night, six-year-old Holly lost the only parent she knew, her beloved mother Victoria. And since that night, she has never again spoken a word.

The last thing Mark Nolan needs is a six-year-old girl in his life. But he soon realizes that he will do everything he can to make her life whole again. His sister's will gives him the instructions: There's no other choice but you. Just start by loving her. The rest will follow.

SOMETIMES, IT TAKES A LITTLE MAGIC... Maggie Collins doesn't dare believe in love again, after losing her husband of one year. But she does believe in the magic of imagination. As the owner of a toy shop, she lives what she loves. And when she meets Holly Nolan, she sees a little girl in desperate need of a little magic. ...

Three lonely people. Three lives at the crossroads. Three people who are about to discover that Christmas is the time of year when anything is possible, and when wishes have a way of finding the path home...

This is a pretty good book, and in the upcoming release of Rainshadow Road by Lisa Kleypas, I am offering a giveaway of the First book in the Nolan Family. I thought this book was really cute, and was a good read.

In February of 2012, Rainshadow Road is going to be released. It is the second book of the Nolan family, but considered the first book in the Friday Harbor trilogy. I received an ARC of Rainshadow Road for being a Lisa's Diva (some info on joining can be found here)

My thoughts on Rainshadow Road by Lisa Kleypas. I do not even know where to begin, this book was truly amazing, inspiring, magical. I love to read, and this is honestly the best book I have read in a long time. The connection between Lucy and Sam is definitely magical, true, and rings so close to my heart. Qualities I saw in this book between Lucy and Sam are some of the same things I feel and see between my husband and I. Lisa did an amazing job on this book, one for keeps, to have on your shelf forever and to be read time and again. A good book makes you feel and believe, and this book did both, made me feel and believe, and in something so beautiful, inspiring. Thank you Lisa for the amazing book, for your amazing talent! I am looking forward to the release of Crystal Cove, the next book in the series. A five star book all the way!

So, I am hosting a giveaway, I am offering on hardcover copy of Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor to one of my readers. Entering is simple, just answer this one question, have you ever read a book by Lisa Kleypas, and if so, which ones, and if not, you really ought to check her out! Her work is amazing! and you can get an extra entry for posting about this giveaway, and if you link back to let me know, I will throw in an extra entry. I will leave this open for two weeks, so the giveaway will end on Friday January 13, 2012. I will announce the winner on Saturday the 14th in the morning. Good Luck, and Have a Happy and Safe New Year!
