A Christmas Home {book giveaway}

Christmas Home
Today our sponsor Random House is giving away a paperback copy of Greg Kincaid's A Christmas Home to one lucky reader.

If you loved A Dog Named Christmas and Christmas With Tuckerthen this follow-up novel will warm your hearts. The main character from those two books, Todd McGray, now works at the local animal shelter where he has become best friends with Laura. When the shelter closes down, Todd does not only have to find a new job – preferably one that allows him to work with dogs - he also has to look for a permanent home for all the animals left at the shelter.

A Christmas Home is mainly a tale of growing, believing in yourself and following your dreams; but it's also a story about the spirit of Christmas and finding the love of one's life. Some might call the book a bit too simple and predictable, but Kincaid is a master in conveying the love for animals and creating a heart-warming Christmas atmosphere. If you read one Christmas book this year, this is it!

To enter to win a paperback copy of A Christmas Home, leave a comment telling me why you would like to win this book. You can earn extra entries by sharing this post on your blog, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and/or StumbleUpon. Leave a separate comment for each action you took so I can count it accordingly.

The winner will be drawn at random and announced December 14. Contest is open worldwide. Good luck!

Depuis son plus jeune âge, Jiminy Waterson a un don : un estomac à toute épreuve, capable de dissoudre de ses sucs gastriques particulièrement puissants tout ce qui n’est pas comestible. On veut faire de lui un rat de laboratoire, mais son ami Alex l’encourage à utiliser ce don sous la forme d’un show, et l’entraîne dans une tournée à travers les États-Unis. Ainsi, au détour d’un prêt-à-manger planté au bord d’une route de Virginie, Jiminy devient-il L’Homme au Ventre Magique. Mais quel est donc le rapport avec ce complot politique qui se trame autour d’un détournement de déchets nucléaires ? Ou avec ce prisonnier dans le couloir de la mort, dont on organise secrètement l’évasion ? Ou encore avec ce flic qui n’a plus qu’une seule idée en tête : se débarrasser de sa femme ? Un seul dénominateur commun : la folie humaine…
