This week, The Borrowed Book is giving away three great books:

Love Finds You Under the Mistletoe by Irene Brand and Anita Higman ~ Two Christmas stories - one historical, one contemporary - under one cover.

An Appalachian Christmas by Irene Brand:

A promise to her dying sister compels Julia Mayfield to take her young nephew to Mistletoe, Kentucky, a tiny town tucked away in the Appalachian Mountains. Sparks fly when she meets David Armstrong, a World War II veteran like herself. Even as shadows from the past weave a dangerous web around Julia and David, will their love flourish like the mistletoe that blankets the nearby hills?

Once Upon a Christmas Eve by Anita Higman:

Hollie Goodnight's store has just been voted best Christmas shop in America. All the new publicity draws flamboyant novelist Van Keaton to the cozy town of Noel, Missouri, demanding to write Hollie's story - a dramatic tale of misfortune and triumph. She is swept up in his world of beautiful words and fanciful interludes. . .until Owen Quigly, her lifelong best friend, launches a plan to win her back.

Love Finds You in Humble, Texas by Anita Higman ~ Trudie Abernathy is a little inelegant and she’s never had much luck in love. To make matters worse, her thirtieth birthday is fast approaching and her sister, Lane, has decided to “treat” her to a makeover and a few blind dates. Trudie is about to protest, but then she meets the kind and handsome Mason Williamson.

In spite of her humble manner, Mason finds her attractive, funny and smart. But Lane inexplicably pushes Trudie away from Mason and toward the other willing suitors.
The makeover has transformed Trudie from ordinary into stunning but she isn’t sure how she feels about all the attention from men. Can Trudie stay true to her humble self and find her heart’s desire in the process?

Ozark Weddings by Anita Higman and Janice Thompson ~ Take a journey into the Ozarks where romance disrupts the lives of three women. Larkspur Wendell s new neighbor Everett Holden is more interested in his computer than communication. Will Larkspur s zest for life draw the reclusive Everett out of his shell or drive him in deeper? The vulnerability of Clair O Neal attracts the attention of two different men. Can she trust their interest or their motives? Nori Kelly s biological clock is ticking loud and clear. But she s also a successful entrepreneur. So why does she only attract nerds like Zachary Martin? Will God move mountains to bring hearts together?

Winners will be announced on Saturday, 10/30/10.

  6. Thanks for your interest in our book. There isn't a town of Mistletoe and never has been. It was the name given to the rural mail route years ago. There is an abandoned church, and one house, also a sign, "Mistletoe." Since Summerside Press wanted a book with that name, I had to fictionalize much of the setting; however, the people living there now are like the lovable people I portrayed in my story.

  7. In my novella within Love Finds You Under the Mistletoe, my setting is Noel, Missouri. I went there to do the research, and everyone was so friendly! The town is located in a very pretty wooded area of Missouri full of curving roads and bluffs. You all would love it.
    Anita Higman

  8. Please enter me for any of the books; all sound great and I have not read any of them.

  9. All three look like they are great books.
