April Showers Bring May Flowers (and a Giveaway!)

To celebrate the end of a rather, please pardon the slang, CRAPPY April and the beginning of a new and hopefully sunny or at least warmer month in May I'm hosting a giveaway of a brand new, yet-to-be released book by Katie Ganshert. Katie, who I hope loves warmer weather as much as I do, has graciously offered an ARC of her debut novel Wildflowers from Winter for one lucky reader of this blog! This book isn't even officially out yet so you will get to be one of the first readers and hopefully one of her new fans! I'm in the process of reading this book right now and let me tell you it's pretty darn good! So if you're ready to celebrate spring with a fresh book pick then please feel free to enter this giveaway. Rules are at the top of the form so be sure to read 'em so I don't have to rain on your beautiful spring day by disqualifying your entry. Feel free to leave a comment for Katie, you never know, she might pop by to chat. :-)

About the book: 
A young architect at a prestigious Chicago firm, Bethany Quinn has built a life far removed from her trailer park teen years. Until an interruption from her estranged mother reveals that tragedy has struck in her hometown and a reluctant Bethany is called back to rural Iowa. Determined to pay her respects while avoiding any emotional entanglements, she vows not to stay long. But the unexpected inheritance of farmland and a startling turn of events in Chicago forces Bethany to come up with a new plan.

Handsome farmhand Evan Price has taken care of the Quinn farm for years. So when Bethany is left the land, he must fight her decisions to realize his dreams. But even as he disagrees with Bethany's vision, Evan feels drawn to her and the pain she keeps so carefully locked away.

 For Bethany, making peace with her past and the God of her childhood doesn't seem like the path to freedom. Is letting go the only way to new life, love and a peace she's not even sure exists? 


Happy Reading!!!
