The Mystery of Lucy and the Dark Woods

Happy Sunday.   I am so excited for this post today.

My good blogging buddy and wonderful friend Diana that so many of you know from her blog Nana Diana Takes a Break has written her first book.

Yep!!!! I was able to get an early copy of her book and read it before it was available for purchase.  I have to tell you I loved it.  In fact I loved it so much I am going to do a post for her and also a give away of her wonderful book.


This is the actual cover of this wonderful summer read and guess what that is Diana on the cover.



This is a beautifully told story and you will fall in love with Lucy the main character in her book.  Diana will capture you with her beautiful writing style as she tells Lucy's story.
With Diana's beautiful descriptions of the characters you will feel like you know them all personally.

The book is about Lucy's journey to learn about life, what love really is and heart ache and loss.  You will learn about her precious gift of knowing things before they happen and how that fairs throughout her life.
It will keep you wanting to know what is going to happen next in Lucy's life.

I am excited to give this review and post in honor of Diana's first book.  If you would like a chance to win a copy of this personally signed copy please just leave a comment below.
I will pick a winner this week and let Diana know the winner so she can personally sign a copy of this fabulous book just for you.

If you would like to buy your own copy please go to Amazon or Diana's Etsy Site.
You will not be disappointed.  This is a great read.
Enjoy and Good Luck.
Kris

  1. Oh Yes, Yes, Yes! Sign me up for this generous giveaway. I would love to read this book. I follow Diana's blog and heard about her new book. So exciting! I've been so busy with vacation etc. (graduation, b-days) that I haven't had a chance to do some things (like order this book). Wish I had it with me here to read on the beach!

  3. It's me again! I'm getting caught up this morning :) How wonderful! Ordering her book was on my list of to-dos but now I'll hold off a bit.. The story sounds very intriguing and my family is from the Appalachia area. How special that you were able to read it already! Thank you so much for the chance to win a signed copy. Have a beautiful Sunday..

  12. I got my copy from Amazon yesterday and look forward so much to reading it, so please don't enter me! I am so very proud of Diana for completing this as I have dithered and re-edited several books so many times, afraid to submit again after one rejection from agent. That's a huge accomplishment to have actually written and finished this and I'm sure the book will be as charming as Diana is. I hope she's already hard at work on a second one!

It's the sitting down and starting to write it that I haven't gotten to yet and when I read about women being able to accomplish it I am just so happy for them. Best of luck with it!!! : ) Have a beautiful week, Kris!! xo
