"Cassidy" by Lori Wick and Giveaway

Spring is here! I will be really busy studying for the next four weeks for my orals. I am almost done with graduate school. :) And work is crazy busy so I will still post but I will not be reading books for the next four weeks. (We will see how long I can go before I break down and read ;) I will catch up after that though. For now I really feel like doing a giveaway and the book will be the first in the Big Sky series by Lori Wick: Cassidy. You have until Friday April 4th at midnight to enter by leaving a comment on this post. :)


About the book:
Token Creek, Montana Territory, 1880
Cassidy Norton is a fine seamstress who makes her living sewing for others. Amid the bustle of a busy frontier town, her life is rich. What time her business doesnt take, her friends and church family fill. But Cassidy hasnt always lived in Token Creek, and few people know her full story. So she struggles with a nagging unsettledness in her heart.
Cassidys friend Meg is married to a rancher and has a baby, something Cassidy wants for herself. But that would mean revealing the details of her life. Will Cassidy find the strength to take that risk?

My Review: I was disappointed in this book. It had the plot line of being a good book but the delivery was off. I have heard the second in this series is much better but I have not read it. I have read many books by her and some of my all time favorites are by her. I read the first book in the Tucker Mills trilogy and then quit. So I had high hopes for this new series. I want to let one of you read it and tell me what you think. So leave a comment if you would like to win a copy. :)

I would love to have this book mostly because my daughter's name is Cassidy and it would be cool to have this around the house to show her.

I don't know why but I am always interested in reading a book a person didn't like. I think it is because it sets it up to have absolutely no expectations, at least not any good ones. So it probably isn't going to be disappointing.

I've read her California series and enjoyed it, so I would love to see if we share the same opinion on Cassidy. Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy.

Brittanie, I wanted to send you my best wishes on your orals. I certainly remember how difficult grad school can be - and enjoyable at the same time! During these four stress-filled weeks, it might be good to take a break and read purely for pleasure.

Rachael said...

I'm also busy with college (not grad school though) but I would still love to win this! It sounds like it could be interesting.
