Sweet September book tour and give away

This is the second book in a series by Guideposts called Home to Heather Creek. The publisher gave me a hardback copy of the first 2 books and they were so good I read them both this weekend. If you just want to read a sweet story about a family, this is a wonderful series. See the bottom of this post for details!

Sweet September was a wonderful read by Tricia Goyer whom I have recently discovered. What a great writer. This book read like a TV show, I could picture the entire story in my head. I can not wait to read more!!!!!! This is another set of books I would totally recommend.

About the Blog Tour Contest

Since Sweet September is all about family, Tricia wants to meet yours. Leave a comment on Tricia’s blog tour post sharing who your favorite family member is and why - and you’ll be entered into a drawing to win William-Sonoma’s Pumpkin Harvest Loaf Pan & Quick Bread Set.

About the book: (Book 2 of the Home to Heather Creek series)

Harvest time at Heather Creek Farm is an exciting time, but the kids don't seem to be getting into the spirit. One day while he's wandering through the fields, Christopher stumbles across an old piece of metal buried in the ground. He doesn't know what it is, but he hides it in the shed.

That night, the garden by the house is uprooted. Who could have done such a thing? Charlotte is determined to find out, but is distracted when she gets news that Sam is failing school. The sullen teen is indifferent and won't study. He starts spending a lot of time with Pete. Though she loves her son dearly, Pete never finished high school, and Charlotte is afraid he'll encourage Sam to do the same. How can she help him get back on track?

A gripping story that examines the Stevenson family's history as well as its shaky future, Sweet September will bring you deeper into the loving community of Bedford and the deep ties of love that bind this broken family together. As they forge new connections, you'll be entertained, inspired, and reminded that God's grace can make all things new.

Avondale Arizona, small, friendly, divided into two sections, known as Avondale and Old Avondale. The city was expanded as most of the new developments are built in what used to be cotton and watermelon fields. Avondale may be small but houses the biggest revenue maker for the City of Phoenix, yes I am talking about PIR or Phoenix International Raceway, yeap it is in Avondale and not Phoenix. We have activities all year round ther is never a dull moment in my town.

We just recently moved to Havelock, NC. Marines affectionately seem to love to call it Have not, NC as it is a very VERY small town. BUT, we are close to the water... close to big cities... and close to other states where we can have a great round experience for our kids growing up! We love history and so this place is perfect for us!!

Thanks for hosting the contest :-)

God bless,
