Giveaway: Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor

Summary: New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas’s new series begins during the most magical time of year

One rain-slicked night, six-year-old Holly lost the only parent she knew, her beloved mother Victoria. And since that night, she has never again spoken a word.

The last thing Mark Nolan needs is a six-year-old girl in his life. But he soon realizes that he will do everything he can to make her life whole again. His sister’s will gives him the instructions: There’s no other choice but you. Just start by loving her. The rest will follow.

Maggie Collins doesn’t dare believe in love again, after losing her husband of one year. But she does believe in the magic of imagination. As the owner of a toy shop, she lives what she loves. And when she meets Holly Nolan, she sees a little girl in desperate need of a little magic.

Three lonely people. Three lives at the crossroads. Three people who are about to discover that Christmas is the time of year when anything is possible, and when wishes have a way of finding the path home… -- St. Martin's Press

I absolutely adore Christmas books! And by that I mean all types -- children's stories, Christian fiction, women's fiction, contemporary fiction, and even romance! In fact, I've already read a few Christmas books even though it's still October. One Christmas-themed book that recently caught my eye is CHRISTMAS EVE AT FRIDAY HARBOR by Lisa Kleypas. I just received my copy in the mail (it was released today!) and I'm looking forward to reading and reviewing it.

CHRISTMAS EVE AT FRIDAY HARBOR is already getting rave reviews. Publishers Weekly said, “Kleypas's holiday offering is sweet, romantic, and genuine…A solid romance with strong leads, this is a refreshing holiday treat.” And RT Book Reviews said, “ Kleypas can do no wrong. If you want a fantastic read, pick up this poignant, heartbreaking and deeply satisfying book.” I read a Kleypas book a few months ago for my on-line book club, and even though I'm not a huge fan of romance, I found it quite enjoyable.

To celebrate the publication of CHRISTMAS EVE AT FRIDAY HARBOR, Lisa Kleypas’s popular SUGAR DADDY is now available as a specially-priced $2.99 ebook for a limited time. In addition, Lisa is now on Facebook so make sure you check out her fan page because there are some fun giveaways and sweepstakes going on surrounding the book's release!

And I just happen to have a fun giveaway too! Thanks to the publisher, I have a copy of CHRISTMAS EVE AT FRIDAY HARBOR to share with one lucky reader. To enter, just fill out the form below -- pretty simple, right? This giveaway will be open until Monday, November 8th at 11:59 p.m. ET, and I will notify the winner the following day.
