Midwinter's Eve Giveaway Hop 2014: Giveaway for Two Hardcover Christmas Novels by Beloved Authors!

Welcome to the Midwinter's Eve Giveaway Hop! Every participating blog is giving away a book-related item worth $10 or more. For my giveaway, I am offering two beautiful hardcover Christmas-themed books by two of your favorite authors.

Evergreen, by Susan May Warren

An empty nest has Ingrid Christiansen dreading the upcoming holidays, but her husband, John, couldn't be more excited about this new season of life. He even has a surprise trip abroad planned. He's sure she'll love it. What's more romantic than Christmas in Paris?

Before he can stop her, however, Ingrid agrees to spearhead a major church project. Then their faithful dog, Butterscotch, needs emergency surgery, draining their savings. And then -- because disasters strike in threes -- an unexpected guest arrives, dredging up old hurts.

As a beautiful blanket of snow transforms the north woods into a winter wonderland, a deep chill settles over John and Ingrid's marriage. With the holidays fast approaching, their only hope of keeping their love evergreen depends on turning the page on the past and embracing a new chapter of their future.

Christmas at Rose Hill Farm, by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Bess Riehl is preparing Rose Hill Farm for her Christmas wedding, but her groom isn't who she thought it would be. Billy Lapp is far away from his Amish roots working as a rose rustler for Penn State and wants nothing to do with Stoney Ridge, his family, or Bess. And that suits Bess just fine. Why should she think twice about a man who left without a word, without any explanation? It's time she moved on with her life, and that meant saying yes to Amos Lapp, Billy's cousin and best friend. But as Bess and Amos's wedding day draws near, her emotions tangle into a tight knot. She loves Amos. Yet she can't forget Billy.

When a "lost" rose is discovered at Rose Hill Farm, Billy is sent to track down its origins. Get in, identify the rose, and get out. That's his plan. The only catch is that he's having a hard time narrowing down the identity of the lost rose, and he can't get those tropical blue eyes of Bess Riehl out of his mind.

As the history of the lost rose is pieced together, it reminds Bess and Billy -- and Amos, too -- that Christmas truly is the season of miracles.

One lucky winner will receive BOTH books shown above. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and ends at 11:59 PM EST on December 31, 2014. Enter through the Rafflecopter form below.

  9. I love the whole thing, but the music the most. I can have music going all day long while I do other things. Although this is my last year, I usually sing in the church choir at midnight mass and all through advent leading up to it, and to the coming of the wise guys which will be celebrated Jan 3 this year.

  26. My favorite part of the season falls on Christmas Eve. After all the presents have been wrapped and placed under the tree or in stockings, we turn off all the lights except the Christmas tree. We open one present and then watch one or two movies or specials before going to bed. It helps make the stress go away. Thank you for the giveaway!
