A North So True giveaway winners, and a new contest!

ANST contest winnersIt’s all about winning in today’s post!

First of all, congratulations to Kim and Heather, who won the giveaway celebrating the release of A North So True! A package of genuine Swedish treats is winging its way to each of them. Enjoy! 🙂

I want to say a big thank you to everyone who’s read A North So True so far. The reviews have been trickling in on Amazon and Goodreads, and I’m so happy that you’re enjoying this sweet-and-steamy, snow-kissed story!

“The best book I have read in so long, it took me two days.. I was awake until 4am! I couldn’t put it down! I laughed and cried – which is rare! A brilliant book.”

“Everything you’d want in a novel. Romance, mystery, suspense, a hero who you fall in love with and a leading lady who you almost wish you could be. A great read that I couldn’t put down and was gutted when it came to an end.”

“Excellent read…felt I was in the snow…imagining the wolves…lovely storyline…deep felt characters…like one big family…well recommended.”

Thanks for your feedback! I love hearing from you in person too, so do keep on keeping in touch. 🙂
