A Giveaway in Honor of Vacation

by Emily Conrad


*** The giveaway is now closed, but the reviews of the books still apply, so read on if you want to know about some reads I've loved!***

I'm on vacation this week, and do you know what's fun to do on vacation?

Read!




I've been sitting on an extra ebook copy of Becky Wade's True to You, and I think this is just the time to give it away!

In case you don't follow me on social media and/or somehow missed all my posts about The Bradford Sisters Romance series, let me fill you in.
On the recommendation of a writer friend, I checked out the series and picked up Falling for You--which, yes, is Book 2 in the series, and I know, I know, but...


That turned out to be a very good choice. I LOVED it. I loved the romance, the setting, the sweet and funny and strong sisters, and the heroes. Because I have to deal with perfectionism in myself, the journey Willow went through resonated with me. Plus, there was so much to like about the story. I started recommending it to friends and giving away copies.



Then I went back and read the first book in the series, True to You. I spent so much of my reading time smiling that that one also got an enthusiastic five stars from me. It seems the larger Christian fiction community agrees with this rating because True to You won the Christy Award for Book of the Year in 2018.

When the opportunity to apply for the launch team for Book 3, Sweet on You rolled around, I applied. I did get to read a free advance ecopy and a free paperback, but I also bought two paperback copies to give away. That's how much I enjoyed this series! Oh, also, my enthusiasm meant I've posed each of these beauties with flowers to the point that I didn't need to take any new photos for this post. Sweet on You with the peonies is a personal favorite...

 
Sweet on You was a wonderful finale to the series with another mystery, an extra element of danger, and of course, the romance between Britt and Zander we'd been waiting for through the other two books.

All of that said, I'd recommend reading the books in order, and so, it's my joy to offer a free ebook copy of the first book, True to You, to someone who comments on today's post.

7/31/19 Update: The giveaway is now closed. Congrats on winning, laltebaumer!

A Christy award winner that I haven’t read! The romace sounds awesome and to be honest, I’ve never read any of her books. I must rectify that situation. Thank you for the chance.

I would love to win these books I haven't been able to read for awhile and I finally have the opportunity to read as much as I want! This would be a huge blessing and I haven't read from this author yet and the books look wonderful!

Josie said...

I love a good road trip. I don’t know that I have a favorite destination. Perhaps the next new destination is my favorite! I love adventures and discovering fun new places. Enjoy your vacation!

Lila said...

I haven't been on a vacation in years. I've been wanting to read Becky Wade and just haven't got around to it. As to favorite romance series, that's too hard! I always come back to the first series I devoured as a teenager and still re-read every couple of years - the Love Comes Softly by Janette Oke.
