A Giveaway! A Texan’s Promise by Shelley Gray


This is my first giveaway and I am excited! I have been book review blogging for a year the end of this month and thought giving away a book would be a fun way to celebrate. This is a giveaway by me. The winner will have the choice of either a paperback copy or a Kindle copy. I have read so many wonderful books by equally wonderful authors over the past year I was not sure what book I was going to pick to give away.

I settled on my favorite author for this giveaway. Shelley Gray AKA Shelley Shepard Gray. I was first introduced to her books when I read The Caregiver(Click on link for my review). I recently read A Texan’s Promise(Click for my review) and thought it would be a great book to give away.

A little about Shelley. From her website.


I grew up in Houston, Texas, went to Colorado for college, and after living in Arizona, Dallas, and Denver, we moved to southern Ohio about ten years ago. I’ve always thought of myself as a very hard worker, but not ‘great’ at anything. I’ve obtained a bachelor’s and master’s degree…but I never was a gifted student. I took years of ballet and dance, but I never was anywhere near the star of any recital. I love to cook, but I’m certainly not close to being gourmet…and finally I love to write books, but I’ve certainly read far better authors. Maybe you are a little bit like me. I’ve been married for almost twenty years and have raised two kids. I try to exercise but really should put on my tennis shoes a whole lot more. I’m not a great housekeeper, I hate to drive in the snow, and I don’t think I’ve ever won a Monopoly game. However, I am the best wife and mother I know how to be. Isn’t it wonderful to know that in God’s eyes that is okay? That from His point of view, we are all exceptional? I treasure that knowledge and am always so thankful for my faith. His faith in me makes me stand a little straighter, smile a little bit more, and be so very grateful for every gift He’s given me. I started writing about the Amish because their way of life appealed to me. I wanted to write stories about regular. likeable people in extraordinary situations-and who just happened to be Amish. Getting the opportunity to write Inspirational novels is truly gratifying. With every book, I feel my faith grows stronger. And that makes me feel very special indeed.

    I have read all of her books except “A Texan’s Promise”. I would have to say my favorite is “The Survivor”. My Mother passed from Cancer so it was heartwarming to read about a survivor and how she picked up the pieces. Although, I have loved every one of her books that I have read.
