DEBBIE MACOMBER'S ORCHARD VALLEY BRIDES: AN AUTOGRAPHED DOUBLE STORY GIVEAWAY!

 ORCHARD VALLEY BRIDES
NORAH and LONE STAR LOVIN'
BY DEBBIE MACOMBER

ABOUT THE BOOK:
NORAH: Norah Bloomfield is feeling a bit unneeded these days. Her father is recovering from his heart attack, and her sisters, Valerie and Stephanie, are busy planning their weddings. But then a cantankerous Texan named Rowdy Cassidy crashes his small plane in Orchard Valley. The same Rowdy Cassidy who'd been Valerie's boss . . . and who'd demanded she marry him. Now he's Norah's patient, and in all her nursing experience she's never encountered a more difficult man. Or a more irresistible one! Except . . . is he still in love with her sister?

LONE STAR LOVING': When Norah's friend Sherry Waterman leaves Orchard Valley, Oregon, for Pepper, Texas, she's definitely not in the mood for Lone Star Lovin'. But if anyone can change her mind, it's Cody Bailman—a hardworking, good-looking rancher. Not only that, Cody has a twelve-year-old daughter who thinks Sherry's "just perfect for Dad"

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Debbie Macomber, the author of  Hannah's List, Summer on Blossom Street, Twenty Wishes and the Cedar Cove series, is one of today's leading voices in women's fiction. A regular on every major bestseller list with more than 140 million copies of her books in print, the award-winning author celebrated her third publishing "triple crown" in September 2009 when the latest in her Cedar Cove series, 92 Pacific Boulevard, scored #1 on the New York Times, USAToday and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. That same month Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove Cookbook debuted on the New York Times list at #8, and her hometown of Port Orchard, Washington, on which her Cedar Cove series is based, welcomed readers from 42 states and seven foreign countries to the first-ever, five-day "Cedar Cove Days" festival. Debbie's popularity is worldwide with her books translated into twenty-three languages. Debbie and her husband, Wayne, are the proud parents of four children and grandparents of eight grandchildren. They live in Washington State and winter in Florida. 

EXCERPTS FROM ORCHARD VALLEY BRIDES:
NORAH: 
It was late, past midnight, when Norah entered the house. Although there were several lights on, she didn’t see anyone around. Her sister Valerie’s wedding was at noon, less than twelve hours away.

Secretly Norah had hoped her father might still be up, but she didn’t really expect it. He went to bed early these days and slept late, his body regaining its strength after the physical ordeal of a heart attack and subsequent life-saving surgery.

"Hi," Steffie said cheerfully. She hurried downstairs, cinching her robe at the waist as she walked. Her long dark hair was damp and fell arrow-straight to the middle of her back. "I wondered what time you’d be home."

Norah stared up at her, frowning in concentration. She’d discuss this with Steffie, see what her sister suggested.

"What happened?" Steffie asked, her voice urgent.

"There was a single-engine-plane crash." Norah hesitated. "Fortunately only one man was aboard."

****************************************************
LONE STAR LOVIN':
Sherry and the mayor of Pepper, Texas strolled down the road and turned left onto a friendly-looking, tree-lined street. Sherry noticed a huge old white house with a wide porch and dark green shutters and guessed it must be the clinic.

"Doc Lindsey’s going to be mighty glad to meet you," the mayor was saying as he held open the gate of the white picket fence. "He’s been waiting a good long while for this. Yes, indeed. A good long while."

"I’m looking forward to meeting him, too," Sherry said politely. And it was true. She’d spent the better part of two years going to school part-time in order to train for this job. She was looking forward to beginning her new responsibilities. But not quite yet. She did want to visit Norah first.

She preceded the mayor up the porch steps to the screen door. He opened it for her, and led her inside, walking past a middle-aged receptionist, who called out a cordial greeting.

"Doc’s in, isn’t he?" Dan asked over his shoulder, without stopping to hear the reply.

Apparently, whether or not Doc was with a patient was no concern to Pepper’s duly elected mayor. Guiding her by the elbow, he knocked loudly on a polished oak door and let himself in.

An older white-haired man was sitting in a comfortable-looking office chair, his feet propped on the corner of a scarred desk. His mouth was wide open, his head had fallen back. A strangled sound came from his throat, and it took Sherry a moment to realize he was snoring.

"Doc," Dan said loudly. "I brought someone for you to meet." When the old man didn’t respond, Dan said it again, only louder.

"I think we should let him sleep," Sherry whispered.

"Nonsense. He’ll be madder’n blazes if he misses meeting you."

GREAT post! The opportunity to win a autographed Debbie Macomber's novel is fantastic. I really love her novels and so many of them have been made into movies because of the way people can connect with story line and become a part of the plot. Thanks so much for the opportunity.
