Enter the Sweet Beginnings Sweepstakes!!

Hey, everyone! There is a pretty sweet giveaway going on for Ann Shorey's new release, Love's Sweet Beginning. To celebrate the novel, author Ann Shorey and Revell Publishers are pleased to present the SWEET BEGINNINGS Sweepstakes, and your chance to win one of three marvelous prizes, all closely connected to the story.

 Here are the prizes!


Baker's Bounty Pie-of-the-Month Club

When Cassie Haddon finds work in West & Riley's Restaurant, one of her first tasks is baking pies for a crew of rough workmen. She's never worked a day in her life, and has no kitchen skills, but really, how hard can it be to bake a pie? In honor of Cassie's baking trials (and eventual triumphs) our Grand Prize winner will receive a 6-month Pie of the Month Club Membership to the Grand Traverse Pie Company

Timeless Treasures Prize Pack

Cassie doesn't have many luxuries, as she struggles to reinvent herself and make a life in Noble Springs, but a few small treasures brighten her cottage and lift her spirits. Our Second Prize winner will receive a prize pack filled with some of Cassie's favorite things: a delicate, rose-colored lace shawl, a pewter pen and ink set, and a bath set filled with lavender and lilac soaps and lotion

Sisters at Heart Prize Pack

The women in Ann's Noble Springs series (Faith, Rosemary, and Cassie) are strong, resourceful, creative, and always looking for ways to give to others. To celebrate their giving hearts, our Third Prize winner will receive a complete, signed set of the Sisters at Heart series, to give to a friend, family member, or sister of the heart

The sweepstakes began Feb. 4th and will run until Feb. 20th. Entry is open to US residents only, age 18 and over. Winners will be selected Friday, February 21, 2014, and announced at Are you excited?? You can enter here!

Here's the book blurb for Love's Sweet Beginning:
It isn't Cassie Haddon’s fault she's managed to reach the age of twenty-five without possessing any useful skills. Until the war, she always had servants to wait on her. After the war, she and her widowed mother moved from place to place, relying on family to care for them. Now she’s forced to find work to support them both. What isn’t in her plans is falling for Jacob West, a local restauranteur and grocer. She needs a job and he needs help. But can either of them see their need for love? Don't miss this tale of two people, from very different backgrounds, finding common ground and the hopes of a bright future together.
