Book Giveaway: “Puppy Love” and “Walking the Labyrinth”

Today we’re giving away two e-books of “Puppy Love” by L.T. Smith and two e-books of “Walking the Labyrinth” by Lois Cloarec Hart.

cover_puppy-love_mini“Puppy Love” by L.T. Smith is a wonderful story about love and dogs and so much more:

Ellie Anderson has given up on love. Her philosophy is “Why let someone in when all they do is leave?” So instead, she fills her life with work and dodges her sister’s matchmaking.

Then she meets Charlie—a gorgeous, brown-eyed Border Terrier.  Charlie is in need of love and a home, prompting Ellie to open the doors to feeling once again.

However, she isn’t the only one who is falling for the pup’s charms.

Emily Carson is her rival for Charlie’s affection, thus starting what can only be classed as a working relationship.

By allowing herself to love Charlie, can Ellie open her heart to anyone else?

“Walking the Labyrinth” is a very special book about opening yourself to the possibility of pain and love in your life:

Is there life after loss? Lee Glenn, co-owner of a private security company, didn’t think Walking The Labyrinth 300x200so. Crushed by grief after the death of her wife, she uncharacteristically retreats from life.

But love doesn’t give up easily. After her friends and family stage a dramatic intervention, Lee rejoins the world of the living, resolved to regain some sense of normalcy but only half-believing that it’s possible. Her old friend and business partner convinces her to take on what appears on the surface to be a minor personal protection detail.

The assignment takes her far from home, from the darkness of her loss to the dawning of a life reborn. Along the way, Lee encounters people unlike any she’s ever met before: Wrong-Way Wally, a small-town oracle shunned by the locals for his off-putting speech and mannerisms; and Wally’s best friend, Gaëlle, a woman who not only translates the oracle’s uncanny predictions, but who also appears to have a deep personal connection to life beyond life. Lee is shocked to find herself fascinated by Gaëlle, despite dismissing the woman’s exotic beliefs as “hooey.”

But opening yourself to love also means opening yourself to the possibility of pain. Will Lee have the courage to follow that path, a path that once led to the greatest agony she’d ever experienced? Or will she run back to the cold comfort of a safer solitary life?

Interested? Just leave a comment below or send an e-mail to and let us know which e-book you would like to win. The deadline for the giveaway is Monday 11.59 p.m. EST, which means 6 a.m. on Tuesday in Germany.

We’ll do the drawing on Tuesday and will then announce the winners here on the blog. Recourse to the courts is excluded.

Best of luck

    I loved Walking the Labyrinth – very real depiction on grief and “recovery”. The intervention especially was very moving…. Looking forward to more from Lois…
