Re: A Midsummer Bride (5:36pm October 31, 2013):

Characteristics for a heroine to be smart, spunky, to have a good sense of humor, to be honest, stand for what is right, courageous, don't back down when you know you're right, and to be helpful to those in need. Your book sounds so very good and exciting I would just love to read it. Thank you for this chance to win, hope I do. The Best To You Always.

All The Best To You.

Re: Honeymoon To Die For (11:56pm September 10, 2013):

I felt the same way you did about Lars and the Real Girl when I saw the preview on TV, then I saw a different one on-line. I kept an eye on the movie until Hollywood Video reduced the price and I bought it. What a great movie. But I still can't get my husband to watch it no matter what I say. Sometimes I judge a book or movie by its cover at first, but I always read the back cover and now with computers I can check on reviews on-line. Thank you for this chance to win one of your books as I would love to win and read one. The Best To You Always.

Re: Bad Nights (1:00pm September 6, 2013):

Re: The Good Wife (1:41pm September 3, 2013):

A marriage is a commitment to pledge one to the other and unto God and it should never be broken. A married person (as well as a single person) should really think what the consequence of his or her actions could result in. If he or she breaks the marriage vows, I think down deep inside the person really doesn't care enough about the one to which they are married or God. All of this does affect the children, I know. Your book sounds very interesting, and to know the outcome of the story I would like and hope to win and reads it. Thank you for this chance to win. Wishing You All The Best.

Re: Never Say No to a Caffarelli (9:51am September 2, 2013):

Thank you for this chance to win your book as I would like very much to read it. The Best To You Always.

Re: Written in the Stars (5:11pm August 28, 2013):

Re: Strung Out To Die (5:57pm August 19, 2013):

What do I love about a cozy mystery? The atmosphere, about all the things going on around you, the feel of closeness, including the spiritual. Like being wrapped up in a warm blanket on a cold night, all snug and comfortable. Mysteries are the best, most every type of book/novel has an element of mystery to it, I find. Your book sounds interesting, thank you for this chance to win it. The Best To You.

Re: A Little Bit of Charm (4:44pm August 7, 2013):

When a young woman's heart is pulled in two directions first pray to God that He will lead you to the man He wants you to marry. He should be a man who loves the Lord, lives a clean life, is kind and honest, slow to anger, etc. That they love each other and have things in common. I really liked your post and would very much like to read your books, as I enjoy reading stories about the Amish. Thank you for this chance to win, hope I do. God Bless You.

Re: Date with Destiny (8:15pm August 4, 2013):

The character that first comes to mind is Pollyanna---looking for the good in everyone and helping others to do the same, which causes that person to find joy. The same goes for Anne Shirley. Your book Date With Destiny sounds like a wonderful, meaningful story I would just love to read. Thank you for this chance to win, hope I do.

Re: Plain Fear: Forgiven (10:50pm August 1, 2013):

Re: The Sweetest Hallelujah (8:08pm July 31, 2013):

Re: Second Ride Cowboy (11:17am July 28, 2013):

I also like westerns/cowboy books and movies. Your book sounds like an emotionally involved one, that I would like the chance to read. How often do people get back with an ex? I would say it depends on what or who caused the break up. I guess it would be close to even if they get back together or not. I do think a couple can rekindle their romance/love if they both really want to. Thank you for this chance to win.

Re: Traveling Light (10:18pm July 27, 2013):

Your book would be a different type of read for me, that I would very much like to try. Thank you for this chance to win.

Re: Rugged Hearts (11:57pm July 24, 2013):

From a very young age God and my wonderful, God loving grandmother were and is the number one influence in my life.

Re: Kissing My Old Life Au Revoir (11:53pm July 22, 2013):

I'm so very excited for you to have a home away from home and family there as well in Ireland. I would love to be able to do the same thing myself. Sounds like you have a wonderful husband and may you both continue to have a blessed life together. Thank you for the chance to win, your book Kissing My Old Life Au Revoir and gift card, and I hope I do.

Re: Raspberries and Vinegar (11:35pm July 21, 2013):

I grew up in the country, 53 1/2 acres, 3 1/2 acres of cultivated blueberries, and a garden. My parents built their own home. My mother did a lot of canning, cooking and baking from scratch, as I have always done. Though I no longer live in Massachusetts, I'm still a country girl wishing I was still living in the woods where I was born. That is why your Raspberries And Vinegar book is the type of story I love to read. Thank you for this chance to win it and hope to read it.

Re: The Officer And The Secret (9:42pm July 19, 2013):

I did meet a guy just before he went overseas to fight and he asked me to write him, so I did. There wasn't any cellphones or Skype back then. I also sent pictures and bake goods packed in popcorn. He said it was great and he and the guys also ate the popcorn. I still have the letters and pictures he sent me, though we never had a date.
Your The Officer And The Secret book sounds like a great read that I would love to win. Thank you for this chance to win it.

Re: Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe (8:06pm July 18, 2013):

Re: Rancher to the Rescue (7:03am July 17, 2013):

My husband and I were married some years before I noticed he's not washing his hands very good. The dead giveaway is the dirty kitchen and bathroom hand towels, needless to say we now use separate towels to dry our hands.

Your Rancher To The Rescue sounds like a great book that I would very much enjoy reading and hope to win. Thank you for the chance to win.

Re: Paradise Valley (1:42pm July 16, 2013):

I can see that I'll be checking your books out, as they are the type I really like. Your Paradise Valley book sounds like a great story that I would love to read. Thank you for the chance to win and I hope I do.

Re: Merger to Marriage (10:20pm July 13, 2013):

I don't think where is the author going with the story or a certain situation, I just read where the author leads. As far as the I Love Lucy show, I do remember the ones you mention, but it has been so long ago since I've seen any. I really can't think of a favorite "Lucy moment" though I think the grape stomping one is the funniest and messiest.
Your Merger To Marriage book sounds like it will keep the characters on their toes, as well as the reader. Thank you and Fresh Fiction for this chance to win.

Re: The Rogue Steals A Bride (11:56pm July 11, 2013):

Re: Jungle Fire (5:59pm July 10, 2013):


Re: Jungle Fire (5:54pm July 10, 2013):

Your Jungle Fire book sounds like a very exciting, hold your breath, on the edge of your seat, adventure for a missionary nurse caught in the middle. I like and enjoy a great story, so I'm hoping to win. Thank you for this chance to win your book.

Re: Pieces Of The Heart (4:37pm July 10, 2013):

Your Pieces Of The Heart book sounds like the type of story I would very much like to read. I will be on the lookout for it. Love the cover. My dad served in the U.S. Navy during WWII before I was born, as did some of my uncles.

Re: Pennsylvania Patchwork (2:42pm July 10, 2013):

I like to read stories about the Amish, and I would love to win and read your Pennsylvania Patchwork book. I've always felt that I should have been born in the pioneer days. My dad did some logging in northern California one summer and our family lived in a tent among the redwoods, it was great.
