BIG THANKS to Gallery Books of Simon & Schuster

Congratulations to these 3 Giveway winners (they were chosen from 29 entries via a random number generator). Here are the winners and their comments about the last good book they read:

  • Steffani -Recently read The Noticer by Andy Andrews.  Great book!  I've never read anything by Mary Alice Monroe, but am looking forward to reading this one.  Would LOVE to win a copy!  Thanks for the opportunity!
  • Barbara - The Help was the last best book I read. Actually I listened to the audio version recorded by 4 different actresses - great for imagining these wonderful characters.
