This or That #Giveaway! He Said/She Said by Erin Kelly & Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center

So.... if you've been stopping by for the last few years to check out my Book Spotlight Giveaways and things look a little different to you, never fear, you are in the right place. I was getting a little bored after so many years of doing these posts so I'm changing it up a bit.  

First of all, instead of featuring one book each week, I'm going to feature two, with the winner being able to choose whichever one he/she wants me to send them. It's all about choices, right? Which ever book is not selected will be featured again next week, along with a new title.  

I'm still going to be using Rafflecopter, for the time being, but I may change that in the future, after I check out what other options are out there. 

Check out the two ARC books that I'm featuring this week and have fun. Let me know what you think and share any suggestions or thoughts you might have.


I have sooooo many books! The This or That Giveaway! feature that I post every Saturday is a way for me to clear my shelves and to share some of the many books I have. This feature is a way for my to cull my collection and to give someone else the opportunity to enjoy these treasures.

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!


The first book this week is one that I read when it came out in 2017. Such a great book! I gave it 5 ⭐s.

He Said/She Said by Erin Kelly
ARC ~ Pub date 6/6/17

In the summer of 1999, Kit and Laura travel to a festival in Cornwall to see a total eclipse of the sun. Kit is an eclipse chaser; Laura has never seen one before. Young and in love, they are certain this will be the first of many they’ll share.

But in the hushed moments after the shadow passes, Laura interrupts a man and a woman. She knows that she saw something terrible. The man denies it. It is her word against his.

The victim seems grateful. Months later, she turns up on their doorstep like a lonely stray. But as her gratitude takes a twisted turn, Laura begins to wonder—did she trust the wrong person?

15 years later, Kit and Laura are living under assumed names and completely off the digital grid: no Facebook, only rudimentary cell phones, not in any directories. But as the truth catches up to them, they realize they can no longer keep the past in the past. 


The second book this week is by a very popular author, Katherine Center. I read this one when it came out in 2019. Another 5 ⭐read for me!

Things You Save in a Fire
ARC ~ Pub date 8/13/19

Cassie Hanwell was born for emergencies. As one of the only female firefighters in her Texas firehouse, she's seen her fair share of them, and she's a total pro at other people's tragedies. But when her estranged and ailing mother asks her to give up her whole life and move to Boston, Cassie suddenly has an emergency of her own.

The tough, old-school Boston firehouse is as different from Cassie's old job as it could possibly be. Hazing, a lack of funding, and poor facilities mean that the firemen aren't exactly thrilled to have a "lady" on the crew—even one as competent and smart as Cassie. Except for the infatuation-inspiring rookie, who doesn't seem to mind having Cassie around. But she can't think about that. Because love is girly, and it’s not her thing. And don’t forget the advice her old captain gave her: Never date firefighters. Cassie can feel her resolve slipping...and it means risking it all—the only job she’s ever loved, and the hero she’s worked like hell to become.

Katherine Center's Things You Save in a Fire is a heartfelt and healing tour-de-force about the strength of vulnerability, the nourishing magic of forgiveness, and the life-changing power of defining courage, at last, for yourself.
