New giveaway! Now I'm giving away Love Finds You in Groom, Texas by Janice Hanna!

For a chance to enter the drawing to win this book simply post a comment about what you like about the premise. For example, do you like how it focuses on the man in the story never being a groom versus the typical never-a-bride focus? Personally, I love the idea. What do you think? I will select a winner using the Randomizer program next weekend.


About the book: 

Always the groomsman, never the groom… It’s 1914, and Jake O’Farrell has gained an unusual reputation among the locals: He’s played the roles of groomsman and best man in all four of his older brothers’ weddings, but he’s never been able to find the woman to capture his heart. And now with the upcoming wedding of his best friend, Jake will become the last single man in the town of Groom.

Anne Denning has made the difficult decision to move with her sisters to Texas, but a train derailment forces them to seek shelter in Groom, near Amarillo. Mrs. O’Farrell, hopeful that Anne will catch her youngest son’s eye, invites the girls to stay at her home until the train is repaired and ready to pull out. Anne has no idea of the blissful chaos that lies ahead!



My thoughts:

I just got the book in the mail but haven't read it yet. I love the premise and the cowboy on the cover versus having a heroine on the cover. I have loved everything I have read by Janice Hanna/Thomspon so far...

I love books that are set in Texas, so I would love to read this one! I also do like that it is about a guy who hasn't found the right woman yet.
Thanks for the chance to win!

Finally, a book that doesn't focus on a girl's lack of husband. Personally, I prefer a book that focuses more on the hero than heroine. This book looks great. Thanks for entering me in the giveaway.

I agree! It's always a woman who is always a bridesmaid and never a bride. Finally someone switched it around and used a guy instead!! Being a Texan, I would love this book! I also love Janice Hanna!

Like most of the comments have said I also love that its from the mans perspective instead of a women's as most authors write about. Thanks for offering this giveaway sounds like a great book. I haven't read many "love finds you series" Actually never heard of them until a women and I in Lifeway started to talk about our favorite books and she suggested these, so I'm interested in reading more of these. Again Thanks for the great giveaway and please enter me. Angelsofmyeye ( at ) yahoo (dot) com

I love the idea of following the mans point of view and focusing on him. I also love that it is set in Texas because I like anything that is set near my home. Thank you so much for the chance to win this. This is an amazing giveaway. I love all of the Love Inspired books and would love to win this one. Thanks again.

I love it, Janice always writes fun stories and now she tackles the last man standing, a great twist on wedding stories. Groom, TX, a new spot on the map for me! Please include me, thanks.

I can hardly believe that he is the last single man in town. We all know he's probably the best looking man in town because he's the hero of this book. I like that he has a strong family that's present in his life. So many books nowdays have these random single people that move out to the middle of nowhere and have no parents or siblings.

I think this is going to be a really interesting read since it's told from the guy's perspective. Always the groomsmen never the groom--what an original idea!
