I've got a full week of blog posts planned! On Wednesday and Friday, I'll be posting book reviews of two wonderful Christmas books. And no, neither one is featured as one of the 12 Books of Christmas. But you'll definitely want to pick up a copy of each this holiday season.
Next Saturday, the winner will be announced for this week's Christmas book giveaway and also for my Faithful Followers Gift Card Giveaway. You'll want to check back for that. What's that? You haven't entered? Well, what are you waiting for? You can't win if you don't enter! Click HERE to read about your chance to win a great gift card!
Now, on to this week's featured author and the awesome Christmas book she's giving away. I'm thrilled to introduce you to Allie Pleiter, author of several Love Inspired novels, as well as a couple of chick lit books published by Steeple Hill Cafe. The book Allie is offering this week is Bluegrass Christmas. Here's the back cover copy:
#4 In the KENTUCKY CORNERS Series
An Old Fashioned Christmas...
That’s what led new believer Mary Thorpe to start over in quaint Middleburg, Kentucky. As director of the church’s Christmas pageant, Mary’s job is to bring the townspeople together, to remind them what the season is really about. But everyone is all riled up over one very handsome man: the man daring to run against Middleburg’s popular long-standing mayor. Mac MacCarthy wants change. Mary wants things to stay as they are. Is there a happy medium? Both Mac and Mary are in for one very big Christmas surprise.
ONE OF ALLIE'S FAVORITE RECIPES
I don't bake, so I don't really have a Christmas recipe, but my family makes a goofy snack named "Reindeer Eyeballs" (really, we didn't make up the name, that's what we were told they were called). Be warned: They're addictive!
An avid knitter, coffee junkie, and devoted chocoholic, Allie Pleiter writes both fiction and non-fiction. The enthusiastic but slightly untidy mother of two, Allie spends her days writing books, doing laundry, running carpools, and finding new ways to avoid housework. She grew up in Connecticut, holds a BS in Speech from Northwestern University, spent fifteen years in the field of professional fundraising, and currently lives in suburban Chicago, Illinois. The “dare from a friend” to begin writing nine years ago has given rise to a career spanning two parenting books, eight novels including the multi-nominated MY SO-CALLED LOVE LIFE, and various national speaking engagements on faith, women’s issues, and writing.
