The Last of GBGA IV

We're most of the way through the bag of books now. I have some that will be more appropriate come Christmas, and a few others that I'll give away as time goes on, but this will be our last week of the Great Book Give-Away for now.

In June I'll be away for a week, so maybe I can do my posts ahead of time and give away books that week.

Anyway, for now, the last, but certainly not the least of the Great Books is Ginna Gray's In Search of Dreams, a Silhouette Special Edition. I tend, you may have noticed, not to read a lot of category series books.

Well, I read some, but mostly I try to read outside the field I write in. But I have long made an exception for Ginna Gray. Ginna writes from the heart. Her characters always touch an emotional chord for me. Plus she writes about the west, and that's always a draw.

In Search of Dreams tells the tale of J. T. Conway and Kate Mahoney. It's been so long since I read it that I can't tell you the details at all. But I know it touched me because I've hung onto it for nearly eight years!

So there you have this week's group:
  • Morrigan's Cross by Nora Roberts
  • Charming Grace by Deborah Smith
  • Four In Hand by Stephanie Laurens
  • Promise Me Tomorrow by Candace Camp
  • In Search of Dreams by Ginna Gray
Make a comment sometime this week and Gunnar will find a treat with your name on it. If you are the first one he picks, you get the books.

He thinks we should keep this going indefinitely. He says there are still waaaaaay too many books in this house and he'd be happy to find them new homes -- particularly if treats are involved.

I say, enough. For now.

I need to focus on Seb and Neely's frogs this week. The missing in action Chapter Eight is about to hop into view (I hope). And tomorrow I'm going to a genealogical conference which should be fun -- and instructive. So I need to focus.

Stay tuned. Gunnar will be back tomorrow night with the winner.

I was in hopes that MIA frog had hopped into view and given you chapter 8 by now. Hope the genealogical conference is fun and instructive and that maybe it will give you a new story idea (if you want one that is).

Thanks, Ellen. The frog will surface tonight or tomorrow, I think.

And yes, I'd be delighted for a new story idea. I have one about Abby Green and Eamon (but she keeps turning him into a sheep, so I'm not sure how THAT will work!). And I have a few interesting loose ends hanging around. Maybe we should discuss potential heroes when I get back from the visit to Granddaughter.

That book cover looks relaxing.

Hi Anne, I'm sorry that I've been MIA for awhile. I miss blogging with you. Life has been a bit busy lately. I hope you have a great weekend. Sadie the Terror sends her love. More about that furry little monster at a later date. I just wanted you to know that I haven't forgotten about you.
Hugs, Mads:)

Dina, I think so, too. But it's not an especially relaxing book. More fraught with emotion!

Mads, good to 'see' you again. I will be awaiting a couple of Sadie stories. I'm sure she's wonderful. Hope you've got warmer weather now. We're getting snow again!!!!
