A PEACH OF A PAIR--A Fabulous Recipe and a Fun Giveaway!

Hello, lovelies! Thanks for stopping in! I’m  SO excited my new book A Peach of a Pair is out, and I'm celebrating this juicy story of sisterhood and betrayal with a fun giveaway and my coveted recipe for peach champagne punch that has people drinking straight from the dispenser at my book launch parties!

A Peach of a Pair is set in 1953. Nettie Gilbert has cherished her time studying to be a music teacher at Columbia College in South Carolina, but as graduation approaches, she can’t wait to return to her family—and her childhood sweetheart, Brooks—in Alabama. Problem is, just days before her senior recital, she gets a letter from her mama telling her that Brooks has to get married . . . to her own sister.

Devastated, Nettie drops out of school and takes a job as live-in help for two old-maid sisters, Emily and Lurleen Eldridge. Emily is fiercely protective of the ailing Lurleen, but their sisterhood has weathered many storms. And as Nettie learns more about their lives on a trip to see a faith healer halfway across the country, she’ll discover that love and forgiveness will one day lead her home.

The Huffington Post says, “A Peach of a Pair is an end of the summer hit… This is the kind of book that makes you want to lock the door, turn off the phone and read every page straight through to the end.” 

I hope you enjoy my recipe and that you’ll check out A Peach of a Pair wherever books are sold, but before you do, COMMENT BELOW to enter my giveaway for a $25 gift card to your choice of Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Indiebound because can a girl REALLY have too many books?

This girl believes there is no such thing as too many books, just not enough room so I share with my sister.
