#Giveaway: Grains of Truth - Lydia Crichton

As a hotbed of political and cultural upheaval, Egypt has become a dangerous place to live, especially for a woman. A world traveler and adventurer, Lydia Crichton married her personal experiences and love for Egypt's golden past with an intimate look at the Middle Eastern conflict. 

Set in the Bay Area and Egypt, GRAINS OF TRUTH is a pulse-pounding page turner that stars spunky heroine, Julia Grant, a devout pacifist, who is manipulated by U.S. Intelligence to take part in a covert mission in Egypt to help foil a major terrorist plot. But when Julia's contacts die along the Nile, she slowly realizes that she has become the center of a deadly game, spun by passion, intrigue, and the clashing of radically diverse cultures and beliefs, including her own.


Some recent praise for GRAINS OF TRUTH...

"GRAINS OF TRUTH is a taut, well-written, action packed story - an intelligent romantic thriller that never loses its focus as a high entertainment story." ––Larry Myles, Red Inkworks

"Unique characters and high drama combine in this well-written, action-packed story of counter-terrorism and espionage." –– Foreword Reviews


Author Bio: A native Texan, Lydia has traveled all over the world in her twenty-plus year career as a marketing and fundraising expert for nonprofit organizations. A trip to Egypt in 2002 turned into a life-changing odyssey, which led her to discover a passion for telling stories that entertain as they explore complex and controversial social and political issues. She currently lives in California's Napa Valley––the inspiration for a second book in the Julia Grant Series, woven around the shambles of illegal immigration in the U.S. For more information, visit: www.lydiacrichton.com.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
