In Which I Was The Winner!

If you follow me on Facebook you saw that several weeks ago I won a giveaway from one of my most very favorite authors!

Ya'll should have seen my silly self blubbering at my computer when the winners were announced and my name was there. :) My awesome hubby just sat there looking at me like I had spiders on my face. :)

The giveaway was to receive an advanced copy of her newest book!


About a week after winning I got the copy in the mail. Now it was Graham's turn to watch me cry while I opened it. (I really really like books ya'll...) I thought that I had read something on her website about the copies being signed but couldn't really remember. I flipped to the inside cover and there was nothing. I seriously was so disappointed that I felt sick to my stomach. Graham literally stood next to me saying "It's ok Momma...". I turned on more page and THERE IT WAS!!! 


I was for real crying then. :)

Have I ever told ya'll that I really REALLY like books and that I was once a librarian? :)

And then I noticed that the handwriting on the inside of the book seemed pretty similar to that on the outside of the shipping envelope.

GASP!

Deanna Raybourn personally addressed my envelope! (I might be getting a tad bit carried away now...)

I am already half way through the book and it's just outstanding! It reminds me of that old Robert Redford movie, Out of Africa.  It's lush and delicious!

Once I finish reading the entire thing I'll do a full review!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
