LACED WITH MAGIC TOUR AND SPECIAL TOTE PACKED/GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
LACED WITH MAGIC

BY
BARBARA BRETTON

ABOUT THE BOOK:

From "a master storyteller"(Booklist (starred review) comes more magic, knitting, and love in the delightful follow-up to Casting Spells.

Knit shop owner and sorcerer's daughter Chloe Hobbs felt the Fates finally got it right when she met Luke MacKenzie. And no one could have convinced her otherwise—including the trolls, selkies, or spirits who also call Sugar Maple, Vermont, home. But then out of nowhere Luke's ex-wife suddenly shows up, claiming to see the spirit of their daughter, Steffie—a daughter Chloe knows nothing about.

Steffie's spirit is being held hostage by a certain Fae leader. And if Chloe weaves a spell to free her spirit, her nemesis will also be free—free to destroy her yarn shop and all of Sugar Maple. But if she doesn't, Steffie won't be the only one spending eternity in hell. Chloe'll be joining her, cursed with a broken heart.

Please count me in. This book sounds like a fun read with the selkies, trolls and spirits in Vermont. I haven't read any of Barbara Bretton's books and this sounds great.

I found your blog browsing and I have been finding more and more great books dedicated to people who love to read. I am an aspiring novelist myself and am trying to expand my blog followers. I am hoping once I am able to do that I might be able to get interviews with authors I like and help promote them. If you're interested in helping me out, please follow me as I will follow you and I hope to read more updates! Thank you so much, Aleece!

I love it when an author takes a "basic" story of love and adds fairies and other magical creatures. How creative that is! What a lovely giveaway! Although this author is a new one for me I am on my way to google for more information. You have the most fantastic giveaways!

I hope I'm entering in the correct place for this entry. Thanks for the marvelous interview and the extra entry. My original entry was #27. I'd name the third book in the series Fantastic Interlude.

starryann said...

I would love to win because I am an avid reader and I have not so far had the opportunity to read one of your books. Your story sounds wonderful for two reasons, one I have cats, two I have read and loved similar stories with cats and this would be a great opportunity to get to know your books. I also like books that have a touch of magic to them so how could I go wrong?

I simply would love to win because the story looks captivating, and because I sorely miss New England. I try to read anything I can get my hands on since leaving Rhode Island and living out West. :) Fabulous giveaway Karen. Thank you for sharing it with us!

This sounds like a very fun book. My to-be-read pile is starting to dwindle, thanks to being on restricted activity due to knee issues. So it would be great to get a copy of this book to read. And perhaps this book would even inspire me to take up knitting again....or maybe not.
