Last Week's Winner and This Week's Book

The winner of Just Hand Over the Chocolate and No One Will Get Hurt by Karen Scalef Linamen is . . .

Helen Ginger!!!

I hope you enjoy the book.

This week's book to give away is . . .

Chocolate Roses by Joan Sowards. I loved this book!!! It's a parody on Jane Eyre. I did a review for this novel in August 2010.

For some reason when checking my previous blog posting the font is very small (every since my blog was revamped I've had this problem--note to self, email the designer to fix this). So let me give you the back cover blurb:

Janie Rose Whitaker's world revolved around her chocolate shop until Roger Wentworth and his young daughter moved into the apartment across from Janie's. Anyone would think Roger fit the mold of the "perfect" guy, but soon Janie discovers secrets that could keep them apart forever. Though she resists getting involved in Roger's complicated life, they are drawn further into a bittersweet relationship.

You will laugh, cry, and crave chocolate as you read this LDS parody of the classic novel Jane Eyre.

To add your name to the book drawing: become a follower of my blog and leave at least one comment this week. I'll announce the winner next Monday.

All this talk about chocolate has me craving some myself. You, too? Here, have a virtual chocolate strawberry on me. :)



  1. I'm always craving chocolate, haha! I'd definitely need to have some chocolate on hand while reading these books. I watch the movie Chocolat every year at Easter time for 2 reasons: it's when the story takes place, and I have lots of chocolate in the house!

  2. I will take any excuse to eat chocolate. :D Thanks for the book rec!

  3. Oh my - A Jane Eyre parody AND chocolate???? An absolute must have.

  4. Laura:
    I love that movie. I certainly understand watching it with chocolate handy. She makes some amazing, lip-licking treats. :)

    The book Chocolate Roses had me searching the house for chocolate.

  5. Lisa:
    I'm with you on that, any excuse has me reaching for chocolate. Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Diana:
    I know. What could be better than chocolate with Jane Eyre? ;)
    Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Mmmm, chocolate! I love the title of that book! So funny!

  8. Carolyn,
    Isn't it amazing how the word chocolate draws attention. I'll have to use it in a title sometime.

  9. Your blog is so pretty!!! Love the revamped site! The book looks fantastic!!!

  10. EM:
    Thank you! I'm glad you stopped by. And the book is wonderful, especially if you read it with a spot of chocolate.
