Clearing Shelves Giveaway Blog Hop



It is time to do a little spring cleaning at Writer’s Corner.   I am offering three books with some author swag.  The prizes are Paris in Love by Eloisa James, The Chaperone by Laura Morairty, and Crystal Gardens by Amanda Quick.
Here is a little about each book:

Crystal Gardens: 

Evangeline Ames came to Little Dixby for rest and relaxation so she could focus on her writing career.   She is taking a break from her regular job as a paid companion working for the Lantern Street Agency. Little did she know that her life would be in danger from a previous case?  Lucas Sebastian has also come to Little Dixby on a different matter to investigate the death of his uncle Chester.  They become involved in an investigation in a case of murder and attempted murder.   Will Lucas accept the help of Ms. Ames and her associates?  There is also this garden that has supernatural energy that hides many secrets.  Can Lucas untangle the secrets of the garden?

Paris in Love:

Eloisa and her family which includes her husband Alessandro and their two children Luca and Anna decide to move to Paris for a year.   Alessandro takes a sabbatical from his work as a college professor and is Italian.   He has family in Italy so they go off to visit them first and then make the drive to Paris.  This journey is narrated by Eloisa James.

Eloisa narrates the story of that year through essays on fashion and French food to short snippets throughout each chapter.   You get a picture of what it is like to live in Paris with children.  She is also very descriptive of the beautiful setting of the city and the many activities to do.

The Chaperone: 

Cora makes the decision to accompany young Louise Brooks on her upcoming journey to New York as her chaperone.  Is she prepared for Louise’s larger than life personality?  Cora also has another reason for going to New York to find out more about her family.  Will she find more than she bargained for in her search?  Cora’s sense of value and propriety are often lost on Louise who causes conflict in their relationship.  Will the two be able to get along in New York or will it be a short trip?

To enter the hop please leave your e-mail below.  You can do something like this:  jenceyg at gmail dot com.  I just need a way to contact you when I announce the winner.  This giveaway is open to US only.
