Gift cards are how I keep track of how much I spend on books a month. If I added $20 to my gift card, once that balance is gone, I am done buying books for the month.

THREE THOUSAND POSTS!
Can you believe that? In almost 8 years of blogging, I have now written 3000 posts. My 8 year anniversary is August 31. That’s a long time of posting my random thoughts (+ books and other reviews) here on Not Everyone’s Mama.
I have something to giveaway here that means a lot to me. I loved Jane’s Melody by Ryan Winfield. If you look over in my sidebar, the cover is still there. I adored that book. Between Jane’s Melody, South Of Bixby Bridge, and The Park Service series, Ryan is one of my most favorite authors and someone I consider to be a friend. When he told me I could give away a signed copy of Jane’s Harmony, I jumped at the chance. I cannot wait to read this book. I preordered it the day he announced that it was available and I am impatiently waiting for August 5th to arrive. 🙂 One of you though gets to get a copy signed by Mr. Winfield himself. Lucky duck!
Starting over is hard to do.
That’s what forty-year-old Jane McKinney learns when she quits her job, sells her home, and leaves Seattle behind to start a new life and pursue the man she loves in Austin. After the death of her daughter, Melody, Jane never thought she would find happiness again – until she met Caleb Cummings. Sensitive, loving, and mature beyond his years, Caleb is a handsome young musician struggling to make ends meet. But when his fortunes take an unexpected and drastic turn for the better, Jane is left wondering where exactly she fits in.
Can you ever leave the past behind? Jane must now decide if she really is willing to commit to a new beginning with Caleb – or if some wounds are just too deep to ever truly mend.
Put Jane’s Harmony on your TBR!

What boundaries would you cross for true love?
That’s the question a grieving mother must answer when she takes in a young street musician she believes can shed light on her daughter’s death—only to find herself falling for him. A sexy but touching love story that will leave you both tantalized and in tears,Jane’s Melody follows a forty-year-old woman on a romantic journey of rediscovery after years of struggling alone.
Sometimes our greatest gifts come from our greatest pain. And now Jane must decide if it’s too late for her to start over, or if true love really knows no limits.
