Amazon Gift Card Giveaway


I'm going to do something a little different here with this Amazon Gift Card Giveaway. I'm tying this gift card in with the release of Happy Hour by Michele Scott. The minimum amount for the gift card will be $20. The rest will be up to you!!!

The total amount of the gift card that the winner will receive will be based on the number of sales of Happy Hour. If there are 2500 books sold ~ the gift card will be $25. If there are 5,000 books sold ~ the gift card will be $50. I think you get the drift.

So, in order to get a higher amount gift card, you've got to get out there and get the book. Spread the word to all your moms, sisters, good girlfriends, book clubs, etc. You can pre-order a copy of the book by clicking on the "buy now" button on the
right sidebar of my blog. AND -- if you pre-order a copy by MONDAY OCTOBER 26th each order will contain an autographed copy of one of Michele's books from either her Wine Lover's Mystery series or her Horse Lover's Mystery series. AND a few select books will contain coupons on how to redeem books for your book clubs as well as a wine and food gift basket! The book will be released on November 5th


Every woman has that group of friends in her life ~ her "go to girls" The friends that she can turn to who "get it." The ones who are there for you no matter what. The ones who laugh with you and cry with you. The ones that will always be there. These are the women of Napa Valley.

Jamie is the editor-in-chief of Wine Lover's Magazine, a single mother and caretaker to her senile mother-in-law ~ a woman who thinks her daily caregiver is Dean Martin. Jamie is still recovering, financially and emotionally from the death of her husband several years earlier. And when she finds what could be the key to happiness, can she open the door and let it in? Or will her feelings of guilt and betrayal hold her back?

Danielle is a vintner and the divorced mom of two. She's basking in what she knows is going to be a successful launch of her new wines. Wines she created on her own after her divorce. But what she doesn't expect is for her daughter to come home with news that will shock her to her core. Will an old flame help her accept the changes that are coming and find the love she's been missing in her life for so long? Or will a tragedy that no one sees coming change their lives forever?

Kat is a sommelier, co-owner of a magnificent restaurant with her chef husband, and mother of a blended family. But is being deeply in love with your husband enough to get them through the teenage years, step-children and exes? And what happens when old faces return and she's faced with the knowledge that not everything is what you thought it was. What happens when she finds she was mad at the wrong person and finds out the "right one" was in the wrong? Can she forgive and move on? Can love overcome everything and truly bring a family together?

Alyssa is an artist and gallery owner with a secret of her own. One she was hoping would stay buried deep in her closet. But the time has come for her to put someone else first, to face the past and to deal with her demons. What she never expected to find was love and her "home."

No matter what is going on in their own lives, no matter the heartache or joy they're experiencing these four women are always there to love, support and encourage each other.

This book is a clear example of the power of friendship and how it can last through the years. You will laugh with them and you will cry with them. It's the story of true and lasting friendships. It's the type of friendships that every woman should experience and a story we can hopefully all relate to. I LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED it. Can’t say that enough. It is an amazing, beautiful book and I can’t wait to share it with my friends!!! A MUST READ!
