Welcome to this year’s Author In Bloom Giveaway!


I am glad to be back sharing three wonderful new books and a recipe.  This is a blog hop which will run from April 18th through April 27th. There is also a grand prize is an ereader of their choice (up to $200 value) with second prize a $25 gift card to the ebook retailer of your choice.  You must visit each site in the hop giveaway to qualify for the grand prize, and leave a comment with email to be counted.  Grand prize winners will be announced on Bloomin Thyme’s websites. The recipe is once again from Pinterest.  This time I decided to take the Impossible Cheese Burger Pie recipe and convert into the Impossible Chicken Cheese Pie.  I loved it!  Who says you can’t tweak a recipe to your own tastes? J  I have one copy of Susan Meissner’s As Bright As Heaven.  The second book is The Lemonade year by Amy Willoughby-Burle and has just released.  The third book is the paperback release of One Perfect Lie by Lisa Scottoline. (Thank you to St. Martin’s Press and Tandem Literary for copies of these books) 

As Bright As Heaven by Susan Meissner:  Maggie and her family have lived in the
Pennsylvania countryside all of her life.  One day she watches her parents discussing the opportunity to move to Philadelphia for a new opportunity.  The family had been mourning the loss of their baby brother who died.  Her mother is the deciding vote and they decide on  a fresh start in Philadelphia and her father would learn the trade of undertaking.  Once they are settled their family strikes up a friendship with the neighbors.  Then World War I occurs and life changes. When the war ends and Philadelphia celebrates the flu arrives.  How would it impact Maggie’s family?  What impact will  her actions have during the flu?  How will this  impact her family?


 The Lemonde Year by Amy Willoughby-Burle:  Nina’s once-sweet life has unexpectedly turned sour. Her marriage is over, her job is in jeopardy, and her teenage daughter is slipping away from her. Then her father dies and issues with Nina’s mother come to a head; her estranged brother, Ray, comes home; and her sister, Lola, is tempted to blow a big family secret out of the water. They say the truth will set you free, but first it will make a huge mess of things. All Nina’s got left is her final photography assignment shooting images for the book 32 Ways to Make Lemonade. Well, that and the attention of a younger man, but Oliver’s on-again-off-again romantic interest in her ebbs and flows so much she is seasick. And then Jack, her ex-husband, shows up, wanting to get back together. As Nina struggles to find a way through her complicated relationships and to uncover her true path, she discovers just how valuable a second chance at life and happiness can be. (Tandem Literary Publicity)

One Perfect Lie by Lisa Scottoline:  Chris Brennan has moved to the small town of Central Valley Pennsylvania.  He is there to take over for a teacher who left to take care of a sick parent.  Once he gets the job;  he will also be an assistant coach for Varsity baseball. He starts meeting his students especially the baseball players.  He pits Raz and Jordan, who are pitchers against one another.  For what purpose?  Which one could possibly be the terrorist? When we the readers find out that Chris’s purpose is to stop a terrorist attack.  Will he be able to make his case in time?  The other parents on the team also have their issues and secrets that could influence the case.  What are they hiding and how it will it impact the team?

    1. I did not get a chance to add this to the post. I changed the recipe with the chicken to make it more like what I would normally have on a chicken sandwich. I hope it turns out well. :) I wish I could mail to Canada.
