I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Contest: Whiskey Gulf

In honor of Book Blogger Appreciation Week and with thanks to Susan Taft-Bourgo of The Perseus Books Group, I have a hardcover copy to give away. The picture doesn't do the cover justice, there is a lot of detail missing.

Whiskey Gulf

Author: Clyde Ford
Publisher: Vanguard Press
Release Date:
July 14, 2009
Pages: 264
Genre: Suspense

from the publisher:
A sailboat fails to arrive at its next port of call after crossing into a “live-fire” naval exercise area just north of the border known as “Whiskey Gulf.” Charlie Noble is asked to investigate why the sailboat went missing, and what happened to the couple aboard. But Noble runs into a wall of secrecy erected by the American and Canadian governments, and into troubling questions about the real identity of the couple involved.

Ultimately, he and his partner, Raven, set sail on the Noble Lady in a case that leads them up the Inside Passage to the remote coast of British Columbia. There, they discover answers about what really happened in Whiskey Gulf that others would rather remain concealed forever. Will they survive to reveal the truth?

Susan has informed me that the book isn't being distributed worldwide. "If the contest winner lives outside of Canada or the US, you might want to let them know that they won't be able to find the book in their local bookstore."

~Good Luck~

I write freelance reviews as time permits for websites when I really love books or when they are sent to me for reviews. And I read a ton of books just because I have read books since I learned how to read.
