The book that I am featuring this week is written by an author I just love. Her books are so beautifully written and I fall in love with all of her characters. I love that she writes her books as series because it allows me to revisit the wonderful places and people she has introduced me to.
This particular book has a special place in my heart and on my bookshelf. The fabulous Bette wrote me in as a character in this book! I was absolutely thrilled to see my name in print! In this book, I am a friendly, ethical lawyer. How about that?
I have an e-book of this wonderful book that I will gift to the winner from Amazon so if you can read e-books, you will want to read this one. If you have not read Bette's book yet, I highly recommend them. I have loved them all! Read my thoughts about Previously Loved Treasures here.
Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!
Previously Loved Treasures
Previously Loved Treasures by Bette Lee Crosby
Series: Serendipity #2
Paperback, 280 pages
Published April 7th 2014 by Bent Pine Publishing
In Previously Loved Treasures recently widowed Ida Sweetwater and her granddaughter come together in a heartwarming mystery rich with imagination and magic.
Struggling to make ends meet, Ida turns her home into a boarding house and goes in search of used furniture. This quest leads to the Previously Loved Treasures shop and Peter Pennington, a delightfully strange proprietor who anticipates people’s needs. In addition to bargains, Peter hands out sage advice. When a pocket watch belonging to one of the residents goes missing for a second time he warns of danger—but will Ida’s granddaughter listen and will she heed his advice?
This is a story that resonates with Crosby’s heartwarming albeit quirky characters and the joy of a pay-it-forward philosophy.
USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review
The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures."
Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down."
"Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write."
It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: The Royal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
