ANGEL LANE: VIRTUAL BLOG TOUR PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
ANGEL LANE

BY SHEILA ROBERTS


ABOUT THE BOOK:

Keep the heart in Heart Lake.
That’s exactly what three small-town shop owners hope to do when they launch their crazy-ambitious “Have a Heart” campaign—asking neighbors to commit one random act of kindness every day. Emma, Sarah, and Jamie love their lakeside community, but the little town is growing too big too fast, and a doing a good deed never hurt anyone. Or so they thought…

When Emma slashes prices at her quilt shop, practically giving away blankets to anyone who looks vaguely cold, she almost stitches her way into bankruptcy. Sarah’s free cooking class boils down to a hotbed of crime when some punk kid swipes her favorite heirloom. And at Jamie’s chocolate shop, things take a bittersweet turn when a local policeman starts giving her grief, stirring up feelings she’s tried to forget—and slowly melts away her defenses…

With irresistible humor, warmth, affection—and recipes!—author Sheila Roberts serves up a generous, open-hearted story about the friendships we make, the chances we take, and the lives we touch every day.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Sheila Roberts lives on a lake in the Pacific Northwest. She’s happily married and has three children. She’s been writing since 1989, but she did lots of things before settling in to her writing career, including owning a singing telegram company and playing in a band. Her band days are over, but she still enjoys jamming on her bass and writing songs. When she’s not speaking to women’s groups or at conferences or hanging out with her girlfriends she can be found writing about those things near and dear to women’s hearts: family, friends, and chocolate. Her 2007 book On Strike for Christmas was a holiday best-seller, has been optioned for film, and will be coming out for the third season this Christmas 2009. Her book, Bikini Season has made Bookscan’s romance best-seller list. Love in Bloom received rave reviews and is soon to be a Reader's Digest Condensed Book. Her newest book, Angel Lane, is getting rave reviews. She is currently working on her next book and hoping Dancing with the Stars will call. (Who says authors can't be stars!) Visit her on the web at www.sheilasplace.com.

Mom's apple crisp recipe came in handy as my mother gave me a sack of apples the other day. I am going to make several and freeze them for company coming for the holidays.
