The Romance Review is partying
I participated in a chat forum and there I offered two random readers who stopped and left a comment a chance to win a copy of Christmas Wishes published by XoXo Publishing Nov. 2012

The winners chosen by Random.Org program are:
Emily and HB .

They have both been contacted and both of them have been sent a Christmas Hug in March.

Yesterday when I clicked onto Amazon to gift the books, I discovered that Elizabeth Lang posted a lovely review:
“Delightful short story with lots of delectable little details. The making of the sandwich made my mouth water. The writer has a way of taking the mundane details of life and make them seem special. Nicely done.”

Gifts come in so many ways. Thank you, Elizabeth.

Day 5 of Week Two of My Virtual Book Review Tour: Read Your Writes Book Review

If you don't start you can't finish.

If you don’t start you can’t finish.

Kim said, “Woman of Substance is categorized as being a woman’s fiction/sweet romance book. For me, Woman of Substance is simply about realizing that it isn’t what a person looks like on the outside. It’s about realizing that the true heart, soul, spirit and beauty of a person is what’s on the inside.

Rating: 4”

I have been so very fortunate through this Virtual Book Review Tour. My ratings and comments have varied therefore it is indicative that the reviewers Goddess Fish Promotions provides are not simply there to give a good rating and leave. They take the responsibility seriously. I have placed the names of the commenters in a random draw computer program and have the winners and I will post those on the next page. I’m so excited.

Day 4 of my Virtual Book Review Tour


In this excerpt from Woman of Substance Ruth used a scene where Robbie disguised as Robin meets Frank for the fist time:
“As the geese began to paddle to the shore, she said, “The geese trust you.”

He teased the bread into crumbs with bony fingers. “These here birds know me. I like to be outside. I live over there.” He turned toward a seniors’ care home, where she’d often seen men and women sitting on benches and in wheelchairs around the front door.”

The geese are important to Frank and a touchstone for Robbie. Later in the story Jake asks Robbie if she suggested that Frank was a goose whisperer.

On a body of water on the Saskatchewan prairie you will see geese.

Today I am over at Devotional Thoughts

[Ruth’s] My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“First of all, this book is to be appreciated since there is no profanity nor sex scenes. That alone makes me want to recommend this book fairly highly. When I take into the account the clever story line, I hold this book in even higher esteem. This is a book that is targeted at adults aged 25-40, but it would be suitable for young adults as well if the topic interests them.” . . .

However later she does say that “As clever as I found the story, I felt like I wanted more. I felt like I didn’t know any of the characters very well. Robbie shared the most, and Jake did to an extent as well. But the supporting cast left a lot of unanswered questions. I felt that I couldn’t truly connect with the characters since I felt that their background was not too detailed.”

I appreciate Ruth’s thoughts which she shared with readers. Each reviewer has expectations for a story and by passing on their assessment they assist readers’ choices.

Drop on over to Ruth’s blog, besides reviewing books she has many give- aways.
