Bloggy Book Tour ::: Engaging Father Christmas (Giveaway!)

I thoroughly enjoy Robin Jones Gunn's books. Her Sisterchick series has been one of my favorites - she writes real characters that struggle and love and live. But this post isn't about a Sisterchick book. :) She has also written a short Christmas novella called Engaging Father Christmas which I received. It was a perfect book for this time of year. Not too long (because I didn't have much time for reading), but still packed with wonderful characters and a sweet story set in England at Christmas. Truthfully, a book by RJ Gunn set in England would have roped me in, but adding the flavor of a small town at Christmas - delightful. :)

The publisher has graciously offered me one copy to give away, so if you are interested, please leave a copy on this post ... I'll draw for a winner this Sunday night and announce on Monday (12/11). You can also read the press release below for more information about the book!

This week, the

Christian Fiction Blog Alliance

is introducing

Engaging Father Christmas

FaithWords (October 30, 2008)


Robin Jones Gunn


Miranda Carson can't wait to return to England for Christmas and to be with her boyfriend, Ian. She has spent a lifetime yearning for a place to call home, and she's sure Carlton Heath will be it, especially when a hinted-at engagement ring slips into the conversation.

But Miranda's high hopes for a jolly Christmas with the small circle of people she has come to love are toppled when Ian's father is hospitalized and the matriarch of the Whitcombe family withholds her blessing from Miranda. Questions run rampant in Miranda's mind about whether she really belongs in this cheery corner of the world. Then, when her true identity threatens all her relationships in unanticipated ways, Miranda is certain all is lost.

And yet...maybe Father Christmas has special gifts in store for her after all.

    This author is new to me, but I love anything (really, anything!) set in England. I was happy to see that our library has this, but disappointed that both copies are checked out until the end of this month.
