Eileen Goudge's Once In A Blue Moon Review & Giveaway

I love to read and especially enjoy "chick lit" books in my spare time (which I don't have much of!). Since I read "heavier" material at work, I like to read light books that keep me interested and have well-developed characters. I jumped at the chance when One2One Network offered me a free copy of Eileen Goudge's new book, Once In A Blue Moon, to read and review. I have been a fan of Eileen Goudge for many years and enjoy her style of writing.The book was fast-paced and I was able to get through it very quickly and at several points didn't want to put it down. I think that is the mark of a great book! Eileen Goudge has written four (4) New York Times bestselling books and this one could very well be the rest. The book tells the story of sisters separated when young who reconnect at a time in their lives when they need each other most. The story is sentimental without being cheesy or sappy and I found myself smiling, laughing, and even wiping away tears throughout the book.

The folks over at One2One Network have graciously decided to give one (1) of my lucky readers a copy of the new Once In a Blue Moon as well as a copy of one of Eileen's bestsellers, Woman In Red!

One2One Network provided me with a free copy of the book Once in a Blue Moon for me to do this review but my opinion is my own and was in no way influenced by One2One Network.
