I'm giving away a copy of A Matter of Wife and Death by Ginger Kolbaba and Christy Scannell

To enter for a chance to win simply post a comment. What intrigues you about this book? Don't forget to leave me a way to contact you if you win.



About the book:

LIFE IS SOMETIMES MESSY...

especially when people expect you to be perfect.

Jennifer, who volunteers at a crisis pregnancy center, has waited years for a baby. Why is it so easy for girls like Jessica to get pregnant -- and so hard for her? Is it possible to want a baby too much?

Lisa's teenage daughter, Callie, is giving her the silent treatment. And her attitude at church -- when she goes -- majorly stinks. The board already criticizes her husband's ministry. What will they say now?

Mimi is overwhelmed. Baby Milo cries continually until she's so tired she can't see straight. Will anybody ever see her for her -- not just as a mom and a house slave?

Felicia's four-year-old, Nicholas, is biting people again. And the timing couldn't be worse...especially when Felicia's boss is about to close her Cincinnati PR office.

Then there's the snobby Katherine Katt, who's determined to lord it over them all....

A MATTER OF WIFE & DEATH looks like a fun mystery read.
Don't we all sometimes feel like "LIFE IS SOMETIMES MESSY"?

What intrigues me about this book is "sometimes life is messy". I beg to differ.

Life is always messy. Just the degree of messiness varies from time to time.

Love ensemble books about women issues. Please enter me in.

Hi, This book reminds me a bit of
"Desperate Housewives!" I have only seen a few of the shows. The difference being there are more children scenarios involved in the book! It almost seems like there are the frustrated with children and frustrated for children. I would enjoy reading this book. Thanks,Cindi

When I read books about other peoples problems, it puts mine into perspective. I'm encouraged when they trust the Lord for His direction. sounds like a good read :)

Several things pique my interest: the cover shows an open cell phone with what appears to be a bloody thumbprint, along with a bucket of coins, and the story is centered around a crisis pregnancy center. I am active in our local CPC.

"...especially when people expect you to be perfect." And I might add, when they expect your children to be perfect. That sounds like a description of what people expect of a pastor's wife, and as a pastor's wife I can say that it's very tough to live up to! I think I can very much identify with some of the characters and would love to read this book.

The title is a catchy one and romance has to be involved. I'm intrigued, curious to see what happens.
