The Paperbag Christmas by Kevin A. Milne Preview and Giveaway

Thanks to Miriam at Hachette Book Group, I have one copy to give away for a lucky person!!! About the Book: Dr. Christopher Ringle is the last person you’d expect to find moonlighting as Santa Claus at the mall on the day after Thanksgiving. But it is there that he meets a young man named Molar Alan, who desperately needs a new perspective on the underlying value of Christmas. Dr. Ringle recruits Mo and his older brother as volunteers at a nearby children’s hospital for the holiday season. At the hospital, Mo is tasked to help bring holiday cheer to the young cancer patients on the fifth floor. His biggest challenge is befriending a decidedly angry girl who is so embarrassed by her scarred appearance that she hides her face behind the safety of a paper bag. About the Author: Kevin Milne was born in Portland, Oregon on June 13, 1973. As with the main character of his book, The Paper Bag Christmas, Kevin’s father, Robert Milne, was in the middle of his final examination of dental school when he was notified that Kevin’s entrance into the world was imminent.

A-Z Wednesday

A-Z Wednesday

This book is on my To Be Read List but it was the only book that started with “N” so I thought I would go ahead and post it! Synopsis: Peyton is not ready to share her widowed father with anyone, let alone a barely remembered cousin who just rolled into town. However, her father seems to like Nora well enough, and prim Aunt Augusta hates her, which raises Nora slightly in Peyton’s esteem. Maybe Nora is just what quiet Lytton, Georgia needs this summer. The whole household is revitalized by Nora’s energy, and it looks as if she might stay on forever. But soon it becomes clear that something is troubling her deeply. It has to be something from her past that’s bothering her, something she is running from. When the shocking truth comes to light, it stuns the residents of their small segregated town. It also teaches Peyton the enormous cost of loving — and the necessity of doing it anyway. About the Author: Anne Rivers Siddons is the author of more than a dozen bestselling novels, including Sweetwater Creek; Islands; Nora, Nora; Hill Towns; Colony, Outer Banks; and Fox’s Earth. She is also the author of a… Read more »

This is being posted for a blog tour this week, but I thought it would be a perfect tie in with Veteran’s Day today. About the book: She’s risking her life to save a man she doesn’t know. But whom can she trust along the way? It is August 1944 and the Gestapo is mercilessly rounding up suspected enemies of the Third Reich after an attempt on Hitler’s life. Gabi Mueller is a young woman working for the newly formed American Office of Strategic Services (the forerunner to the CIA) in Switzerland. When she is asked to put herself in harm’s way to safely “courier” a German scientist who is working on the atomic bomb out of enemy territory, the fate of the world hangs in the balance. About the Author(s): Tricia Goyer: Tricia is the author of 20+ books and has published over 300 articles for national publications such as Guideposts for Kids, Focus on the Family, Christian Parenting Today, Today’s Christian Woman and HomeLife Magazine.
