We have WINNERS and a Review

Before I announce the winners of The Renewal contest, I must share with you about the book.

I finished reading The Renewal by Terri Kraus this weekend. The first evening, I read all the way to Chapter 18 - could not put it down. At 1 a.m. I FORCED myself because I had to get up at 4:30 the next morning. (Overslept, but we still made our destination in time. Whew!) Then I finished the book the next night.

Terri knows how to torment her characters. The book was riveting - a definite page-turner. I found myself either really liking and loving the characters, and really hating other ones. I cheered for the heroine, and kept hoping things would work out with the hero. The setting was fantastic, and the secondary characters were memorable and unique.

I became a HUGE Terri Kraus fan overnight, and hope you'll seek out her books. You'll become a fan, too.

Now - we have WINNERS!!

The winner of the first $25 amazon gift card is Bunny. She will be awarded the gift card and an autographed copy of The Renewal. Sometime this week, she'll hold a contest on HER website, and the winner there will receive the second $25 amazon gift card and a copy of the book.

The winner of the autographed copy of The Renewal is Cindy Wilson.

And I couldn't leave out Lynda Schab, who helped promote Terri's books, so we're also sending her a copy of The Renewal, too!

I'll announce Bunny's winner when she has one.

Thanks for participating, and thanks for reading along.

Go get a copy of The Renewal, or The Restoration, or any of Terri's other books!!! More great summertime reading!
