Happy 4th of July.
Today I just wanted to say how thankful I am to have my health, my family, a home to love them in, and the means to provide for them. I have a wonderful husband and we'll celebrate 15 years married. He's supportive of my dreams...even when writing takes time away from him and the kids.
We're spending some of today home watching movies like Transformers, Independance Day, and X-Men. Tonight it's the demolition derby and fireworks.
For those in the states, have a great and safe holiday. For others, have a great start to the weekend.
Today, tell me if you have any fun plans for the holiday or the weekend in general. Today's prize is a signed print copy of Marion's Train.
I can promise you laughs, I can promise you tears, and I can promise that you will not be bored when you read this delightful novel! Ms. MacDonald has done an incredible job of writing a near-perfect story and she has won a place on my (and many others, I would imagine) keeper shelf! ....
Marion's Train is a wonderfully written tale that brings on laughter, and entertainment. It is a genuine story, with great believability, that surrounds a huge range of characters.
Blurb: Life in 1880 Montana is ripe with opportunity for a gal who works on her back. And Marion Young likes her job, so when handsome, yet reserved Joseph Spenser, nicknamed Train, spends his savings to buy her services for one week, she's surprised when he doesn't want to climb aboard.Train isn't interested in being one of Marion's many patrons. He intends to convince her to marry him. Since he's wagered his money, why not bet it all? If he can withstand her charms, she'll marry him in one week giving up her profession. But if Marion is victorious, Train must give up talk about their future and give her a wild ride on his impressive locomotive.
