A Must read and giveaway!

I was recently privileged to review the 2nd in a series by Elaine Marie Cooper called "The Deer Run Saga"...and you MUST get it!  I was so enamored by Cooper's writing style and captivated by the story line that I did not want to put the book down. 

Elaine Marie Cooper grew up in Massachusetts but now lives in the Midwest with her husband, her three dogs and one huge cat. She has two married sons and triplet grandchildren who are now one years old. The Promise of Deer Run is dedicated to the triplets and to veterans who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Elaine has been a magazine freelance writer for many years, and is a regular contributor to a blog on the Midwest called The Barn Door  
and a blog on Christian living called Reflections In Hindsight She is the author of The Road to Deer Run and the sequel, The Promise of Deer Run. Prior to becoming an author, Elaine worked as a registered nurse.

The Road to Deer Run won the following honors:

Finalist: 2011 Next Generation Indie Book Awards
Honorable Mention: 2011 Los Angeles Book Festival
Best Romantic Moment:, February 2011

Tomorrow I will post my personal review of this book, and you will want to check back here for that!
