New giveaway! Now I'm giving away Operation Bonnet by Kimberly Stuart!

For a chance to enter the drawing to win this book simply post a comment about whether or not you know any people who are "odd ducks" and then post what it is about them that makes them "odd." I will select a winner using the Randomizer program. However, due to my being out of town for my father's funeral next weekend it my not happen exactly on Sunday as is normally planned. But I will choose a winner ASAP after that date. Best wishes to you all. (Oh, my answer... My kids are odd. They like to do weird things like study, clean, organize things, and help out when asked. And they are 18 and 19 year old boys. Need I say more?)

Operation Bonnet: A Novel

About the book:

Twenty-year-old Nellie Monroe has a restless brilliance that makes her a bit of an odd duck. She wants to be a private investigator, even though her tiny hometown offers no hope of clients.

Until she meets Amos Shetler, an Amish dropout carrying a torch for the girl he left behind. So Nellie straps on her bonnet and goes undercover to get the dish.

But though she’s brainy, Nellie is clueless when it comes to real life and real relationships. Soon she’s alienated her best friend, angered her college professor, and botched her case. Operation Bonnet is a comedy of errors, a surprising take on love, and a story of grace.

My thoughts:

I don't have this book and though I have a few books by this author I haven't read any of them yet. (I really need to get on the stick and read one.) At any rate, I hear she's good and her stories are entertaining. You can decide for yourself if you win.

Oh, wow; sounds like a fantastic book. I'd love to win it. I've never read any of this author's books yet either, but looking forward to it.

Oddities: My oldest son will read a dictionary if nothing else is available. He even (around 8 years old) was reading a scary (to me) book of my husband's about death. Of course, I promptly took the book & hid it. :)

This sounds like such a cute book! I would love to read it. :)

As far as someone I know who is an "odd duck"... well I guess you could say that my husband is rather odd in that he doesn't like to read in general but REALLY enjoys books such as Sherlock Holmes... good literature, right? So I'm not sure what it is about reading he dislikes, lol.

I would love to read this book. It sounds very good. My 6 year old son will practically eat anything. He drinks creamers. He likes lemons. He even eats shrimp and stuff with hot sauces on it. Please enter me in contest.

I'm pretty sure my best friends daughter is the oddest duck I know. She is five and some of the crazy things she does is dip everything in mustard, even chips or desserts, anything! She also use to chase my kids around the house to try and lick their feet-gross! lol
This book sounds really interesting! Thanks for the chance to win it!

My family is full of odd ducks. That's what makes us all so unique and interesting.
