This OR That #Giveaway Week 21 ~ Love at First by Kate Clayborn OR Spring Fever by Mary Kay Andrews #LoveAtFirst #SpringFever


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. It's a way for me to cull my collection and give someone else the chance to enjoy these treasures.

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!


I'll bet you thought I had fallen off of the face of the earth. Or....maybe nobody missed me? 😏

Anyway, our family has been dealing with the declining health of my MIL and she ended up passing away last week. She just celebrated her 90th birthday in May so it wasn't unexpected but it happened quickly. And then we had to deal with getting rid of her 90 years of accumulated stuff. Oh my! So I was busy with all of that and pretty much offline for a couple of weeks. 

But I'm back and here we go again with another 
This OR That Giveaway! 
Good luck!


Love at First is a sweet, emotional, character-filled story that I just loved. You can read my thoughts here.

Love at First
by Kate Clayborn
ARC ~ Pub date February 2021

Sixteen years ago, a teenaged Will Sterling saw—or rather, heard—the girl of his dreams. Standing beneath an apartment building balcony, he shared a perfect moment with a lovely, warm-voiced stranger. It’s a memory that’s never faded, though he’s put so much of his past behind him. Now an unexpected inheritance has brought Will back to that same address, where he plans to offload his new property and get back to his regular life as an overworked doctor. Instead, he encounters a woman, two balconies above, who’s uncannily familiar...

No matter how surprised Nora Clarke is by her reaction to handsome, curious Will, or the whispered pre-dawn conversations they share, she won’t let his plans ruin her quirky, close-knit building. Bound by her loyalty to her adored grandmother, she sets out to foil his efforts with a little light sabotage. But beneath the surface of their feud is an undeniable connection. A balcony, a star-crossed couple, a fateful meeting—maybe it’s the kind of story that can't work out in the end. Or maybe, it’s the perfect second chance...

A sparkling and tender novel from the acclaimed author of Love Lettering, full of bickering neighbors, surprise reunions, and the mysterious power of love that fans of Christina Lauren, Sarah Hogle, and Emily Henry will adore.


You can never go wrong with a story by MKA. I know I'm in for a treat when I start one of her books. Spring Fever is another great read! You can read my thoughts here.

Spring Fever
by Mary Kay Andrews
Mass market paperback ~ Pub date June 2012

First husbands

Annajane truly believes she is over her ex-husband, Mason. They've been divorced for four years, she's engaged to a terrific new guy, and she's ready to leave the small North Carolina town where she and Mason had so much history. She is so over Mason that she has absolutely no problem attending his wedding. But when fate intervenes and the wedding is called to a halt as the bride is walking down the aisle, Annajane begins to realize that maybe this happened for a reason. And maybe, just maybe, she wants Mason back...

Second chances

But there are secrets afoot in this small Southern town, and soon Annajane discovers that change can bring out the worst in people-even her own friends and neighbors-and uncover family scandals. Happiness could be hers for the taking...and the life she once had with Mason could be in her future. But first Annajane must find out what she's really made of, and what really matters most.

"A winsome love story and compelling family drama; an idyllic small-town setting and surprising twists and turns."-Booklist
