This OR That #Giveaway Week 47 ~ Finding Libbie by Deanna Lynn Sletten OR Nearly Departed in Deadwood by Ann Charles #NearlyDepartedInDeadwood #FindingLibbie


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.

Today I have books by two of my very favorite authors of all time. I have extra copies of these books. No way I'm giving up my personal copies! 😍 I wanted to introduce you to both of them and their books so you can enjoy them as much as I do. 

I have met both Deanna and Ann several times and consider them friends—friends who just happen to write amazing stories. 

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!


Finding Libbie
By Deanna Lynn Sletten
Paperback ~ Published September 2016

Poring over a dusty hatbox of photographs in her grandmother’s closet, Emily Prentice is shocked to discover her father was married to his high school sweetheart before meeting her mother.

In the summer of 1968, Jack and Libbie fall in love under the spell of their small town, untouched by the chaos of the late sixties. Though Libbie’s well-to-do parents disapprove of Jack’s humble family and his aspiration to become a mechanic, she marries Jack a year after they graduate high school. But soon their happiness crumbles as Libbie’s mental state unravels and she is drawn to alcohol and drugs. Despite his efforts to help her, Jack loses the woman he loves and is forced to move on with his life.

Now that Emily’s mother has passed away, Jack is alone again, and Emily grows obsessed with the beautiful woman who had given her father such joy. Determined to find Libbie, Emily pieces together the couple’s fragmented past. But is it too late for happy endings?

Finding Libbie is one of my favorites of Deanna's books and one that I have read several times. And as I have said before, I'm typically not a re-reader of books but this one did it for me. It is incredible!


Nearly Departed in Deadwood
by Ann Charles
Paperback ~ Published January 2011

Little girls are vanishing from Deadwood, South Dakota. Fearing her daughter might be next, single mom, Violet Parker, is desperate to find the monster behind the abductions.

With her savings dwindling and just three weeks left to sell her first house or lose her Realtor job, Violet is ecstatic when a handsome jeweler hires her to sell his century-old, Victorian masterpiece until she sees the dilapidated dwelling.

Now, if she could just convince her only buyer to stop rejecting vintage homes as if they're haunted. Short on time and long on worry, she refuses to give up her dream of a fresh start in Deadwood.

But with a malicious coworker trying to get her fired, a secret admirer sending her creepy messages, and a sexy stranger hiding skeletons in his closet, will Violet end up as one of Deadwood's dearly departed?

Nearly Departed in Deadwood is book #1 in an amazing, fun series. I love all the characters and sit on pins and needles waiting for the next book. Ann is up to book 12 in this series and I can't wait to see what's coming in book 13!
