Last Week's Winner and This Week's Book

No, this isn't a repeat of last week. Each week for a while I'll announce last week's book winner and this week's book to give away.

The winner of Chocolate Roses
by Joan Sowards is . . .

Carolyn V!

Congratulations! I'll be in touch.

Now this week's book give away is

Summer in Paris by Michele Ashman Bell.

I picked this book because it takes place at Bear Lake where I had a wonderful family reunion last weekend. I know summer is almost over, but this is a good novel for the dog days of summer.

Here's the back cover blurb:

"I declared bankruptcy this morning. We've lost everything." Kenzie's father took a breath and continued. "We have thirty days to auction off our belongings and move out of the house."

Kenzie's mouth dropped open with disbelief. "Bankrupt," she whispered. That one word had the power to reduce her life from chauffeurs and credit cards to nothing.

"While we sort this out," her father continued, "we've made arrangements for you to stay with your aunt and uncle in Paris."

Paris. That wouldn't be so bad.

But wait . . . her uncle didn't live in Europe. He lived in Idaho.

This is a fun YA book that appeals to young and old alike. 

You know the drill: become a follower and leave a comment. For more information, the giveaway rules are over there in my right sidebar.

    You bet! I have too many books in my library, so I'm giving some away. Breaks my heart, because I'd keep every book if I had room. But at least I can share them with those lucky followers who leave a comment. Your name goes in the hat. :)
