Giveaway! A Marriage in Middlebury by Anita Higman!

Good Monday morning, readers!

Last week I had a great time chatting and hearing from my blog readers about what author first started you in reading Christian fiction. 

I think the consensus was pretty easily divided between Lori Wick and Janette Oke, two authors who were strong proponents to bring Christian fiction into the limelight.

Which brings to mind another question, but I'm going to hold off asking for just a minute... ;-) Read to the bottom to answer and be entered to win another book.

Anita Higman grabbed my interest several years ago with a title she wrote for the Summerside Love Finds You line. Love Finds You in Humble, Texas was a thoroughly enjoyable read and since then I've had the chance to read several of her titles including her latest novella A Merry Little Christmas. She has the ability to make memorable and enjoyable characters come to life on the pages while writing a story that might seem normal and cliche, but make it spark. 


Her latest title Winter in Full Bloom is now on my Kindle to-be-read stack (which is really quite the tower!) and I'm excited to share her latest book, A Marriage in Middlebury with you for a chance to win! I'm working with Jeanne Wynn of Wynn-Wynn Media and am very eager to give this title to one fortunate reader! While I haven't read the book yet myself, I have no doubt it's bound to be a good one! I think the perfect fireside read this winter. ;-)

So my question for you?

If you had to pick one author--and no other, mainstream or Christian fiction, that you could only ever read, who would that author be? 

LOL, I'm not even sure I'm able to answer this question, there are so many authors I love! But if I had to try, I'd probably say...Laura Frantz... for the beautiful and fulfilling depth to her stories that always leave me in awe. But boy would I deeply miss my other beloved authors! Thankfully I haven't been faced with this question in real life yet. ;-)

  1. The first author that came to my mind was Dee Henderson. There are so many good ones that would be hard to give up, but I think she might be the hardest.

  3. I'm pretty sure that Winter in Full Bloom is in my Kindle TBR stack also!

    One author, that's hard, but I think the first that comes to mind is Julie Lessman.

  4. Thank you for your post. I would love to have a chance to read Anita's new book. I have never heard of her and I am always looking for new authors!

    I love to read Karen Kingsbury, so I would hate to ever give up her books. : )

  7. Gosh, I'm not sure that question is fair...however, there is something about Tamera Alexander books that just calm me and leave me breathless. I'm not sure I would want to live without her books. But then there are so many other authors as well....it's really not a fair question. ;)

  9. Kim Vogel Sawyer. I love all her books, each one is better than the last. I love the way she describes all the characters and all the scenery in the area, and the feelings and other things about all the characters.

  11. Mary Connealy, because her books are hilarious. But don't enter me. I reviewed this book at alwaysreadingblog.blogspot.com

  12. Wow! That is a tough question. I would have to say Julie Klassen. I started reading her books this summer and finished most of them in 2-4 days. I love reading books set in the Regency era, and Julie's writing is very well done--very complex compared to some other romance novels I have read.

  13. Wow, this is a hard question, but I would have to say Beverly Lewis. She was the first author I read Amish fiction and fell in love with it. I still love all the Christian fiction and read all of it, but Beverly Lewis brought a totally different writing to my attention.

  17. Hard to choose one author, but I'll say Tamara Alexander, because of her complex plots and character development. There are so many I like! hard to choose one. I would love to win Anita Higman's book. I have WINTER IN BLOOM already and look forward to another by her. sharon, ca wileygreen1(at)yahoo(dot)com

  22. Casey, this is a terrible question! I would not want to ever be limited to just one author. However, for the purposes of answering your question, I will say Mary Connealy. Her books give me action, romance, comedy, and faith.
    I don't think I've read any books yet by Anita, but A Marriage in Middlebury looks good.

  24. Great interview! How am I supposed to answer a question like that? There are so many authors out there that have great books and I enjoyed reading them all. So if I have to pick one, I choose Shelley Shepard Gray for now because I am reading her latest series.
