I had a wonderful win recently. Red Room was offering a summer contest inviting people to write a post about their favorite summer read. Five winners would receive 14 bestsellers:

The Monster of Florence (Douglas Preston)

Barefoot (Elin Hilderbrand)

The Preacher and the Presidents (Nancy Gibbs & Michael Duffy)

Made in the U.S.A. (Billie Letts)

Swine Not? (Jimmy Buffett & Helen Bransford)

Off Season (Anne Siddons)

Miscarriage of Justice ("Kip" Gayden)

A Rose by the Door (Deborah Bedford)

Remember Me (Deborah Bedford)

Trespassers Will Be Baptized (Elizabeth Hancock)

Child 44 (Tom Smith)

A Summer Affair (Elin Hilderbrand)

Close (Martina Cole)

I was thrilled when I found out that I was one of the winners. My entry can be read here. The books arrived today, and they are lovely!

I had been anxious to read The Monster of Florence, Child 44 and Miscarriage of Justice, and even though I had finally gotten the first book from the library, I'm thrilled to add all these books to my personal library.

Red Room is an excellent resource for writers and readers of all sorts!
