So, here's the deal. Hachette Books wants to give one of you a sweet prize for Valentine's Day -- two books and a yummy chocolate candy bar. Like I said, it's sweet.
The following is a letter from Christina Boys, editor of the two books included in the giveaway:
Valentine's Day is just around the corner! The crisp, cool air feels a little sweeter and stores are filling their shelves with greeting cards and candies. But instead of sharing the usual gifts, the way to someone's heart can be through a story (and maybe a little bit of chocolate). Hachette Book Group is offering a "Give Books, Not Roses" Valentine's Day giveaway for those of you who want to express your admiration for friends, family, and loved ones.
Love Gently Falling, written by Melody Carlson, is a romantic novella about the power of Valentine's Day and how one woman discovers love while at the same time saving her family's business. Successful hairstylist to the stare, Rita Jensen, returns to her hometown in Chicago after receiving news that her mother has suffered a stroke. Though Rita must come up with a plan to save her mother's salon, the oncoming holiday and her undeniable feelings for an old classmate become quite a distraction.
Keys of Heaven is the second book in Adina Senft's Healing Grace trilogy. Amish widow, Sarah Yoder, helps her community by creating teas and tinctures from the herbs she grows. She struggles to find love with an Amish man, and she doesn't know what to do about her attraction to her friend, Henry Byler, who has turned away from her beliefs. Sarah's story will show anyone that romantic love is not the only love that matters.
Valentine's Day is an internationally celebrated day of romance, dating back to the 5th century. But today, love touches our lives in so many different ways. Whether you are dedicating the day to your good friends or your life partner, treat them to these wonderful stories of courage, kindness, and love.
