My Deeanne Gist Giveaway!

Confession: I can't get enough of Deeanne Gist!
I started with Love on the Line and over the last month have read every book of hers I can get my hands on (confession #2: I've now read all of them, which is a good thing because I've been doing more reading than writing). I've not only fallen in love with her unforgettable characters and unique plots, but I love how I learn something new about history every time I read one of her books. She researches for her stories so thoroughly, and adds details to the pages that come alive, I feel like I'm there, learning the old way of life along with the characters.
That being said, I'd like to pass my love for this author's work onto you. I'm giving away four copies of Deeanne's novels:
A Bride Most Begrudging (Christy Award Winner)
The Measure of a Lady
A Bride in the Bargain
The winner will receive all four novels!

  3. I'll confess I've never read a Deeanne Gist book... so maybe it's time I did! My favorite book would have to be Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, closely followed by any of the James Harriot books.
