Congratulations to house_mouse for winning Debra Clopton’s Texas Ranger Dad, to Patricia for winning Merrillee Whren’s Homecoming Blessings and mez for winning Cheryl Wyatt’s Ready-Made Family.

This week I’m hosting Bonnie Leon with Enduring Love and Linda Hall with Shadows on the River. If you want to enter the drawings for either or both of these books, please leave a comment on one of the post during the week with your email address. I will not enter you without an email address (my way to contact you if you win). If you don’t want to leave an email address, another way you can enter is to email me at and let me know which books. The drawings end Sunday (April 19th) evening.

Bonnie Leon’s bio:

Bonnie Leon is the author of sixteen novels, including the popular Queensland Chronicles and the Sydney Cove series, plus the bestselling Journey of Eleven Moons. She’s presently in the midst of a new Alaskan series set during the 1930’s about a woman named Kate who loves to fly.

Bonnie stays busy speaking for women’s groups as well as teaching at writing seminars
and conventions. She and her husband Greg live in the mountains of Southern Oregon. They have three grown children and four grandchildren.

Back blurb of Enduring Love:

Just when things seem to be looking up for John and Hannah Bradshaw, their world is turned upside down.

Years ago, when John was in prison, he was told his first wife, Margaret, died. So how is it that she shows up in Sydney Town looking to pick up where they left off?

Hannah is distraught. Her marriage is now null and void, and she and John feel they must separate to allow John’s first marriage to continue.

But is Margaret hiding something? And just what will she do to get what she wants?

The suspenseful, romantic conclusion to the Sydney Cove trilogy.

Linda Hall’s bio:

Award winning and twice Christy-nominated author Linda Hall has written fifteen novels plus many short stories. She has also worked as a freelance writer, news reporter and feature writer for daily newspaper.

She grew up in New Jersey where her love of the ocean was nurtured. Most of her novels have something to do with the sea. When she’s not writing, Linda and her husband enjoy sailing the St. John River system and the coast of Maine. In the summer we basically move aboard their 34′ sailboat aptly named – Mystery.

Right now she writes romantic suspense for Steeple Hill’s Love Inspired Suspense line, and loving it. She grew up reading Phyllis Whitney and Victoria Holt and feels like she has “come home” in her writing.


“I was only fourteen when I witnessed a murder on the riverbank. A murder that went unpunished. Unless you count what happened to my family. We were forced out of town by the teenage killer’s prominent parents. And the murder was forgotten—by everyone but me. Now, the killer is a respected businessman. I can’t let him get away with it. But I’m a single mother with a child to protect, what can I do? The new man in my life, Mark Bishop, warns me to be careful. For there’s already been another murder. Close to home.”


  1. I am very interested in Enduring Love which sounds captivating. Thanks for this lovely giveaway.

  2. Enduring Love sounds wonderful. However, Love Inspired suspense romances are good too. I’d love to be entered in both drawings. Thanks

  3. I recently ordered several of Bonnie Leon’s books but haven’t read them yet. The blurp on this series is intriguing. I’d love a chance to win!
