Free Book Friday (with a side of Funny)


Happy Canada Day! In honor of this respected holiday, I thought it would be fun to share some Canadian funnies today.

And my favorite, because I’m a total maple syrup whore…



Sadly, I don’t have any books on my pile that are set in Canada, nor can I think of any Canadian romance authors right off the top of my head.  (And even if I could, I don’t know that I’d have one of their books on my pile, either.)  So I’m going for simply a red theme, in hopes that you’ll be willing to pretend this book has anything to do with Canada Day. :tongue

This week’s Free Book Friday giveaway is Quicksand by Iris Johanesen.  See—it’s red.  With a bit of sand that could be mistaken for white.  White lettering, anyway.  Go with me on this, people.  :whip

To enter the giveaway for this book, simply leave a comment to today’s post that includes the code FBF—for “Free Book Friday,” of course—to let me know you’re interested in the drawing. (U.S. residents only for the prize, please, but everyone is welcome to chat.)

Winner will be announced during our Happy Sunday post on…well, you know, Sunday. Winner is responsible for contacting me with her mailing information—i.e. I will not be contacting you—so be sure to check back in or you might not even know you won! :crying (If prize isn’t claimed within 14 days, another name may be drawn or item may be tossed back into the goody bag to be re-used for a future giveaway.)

    FBF My favorite canadian authors are Lynsay Sands & Tanya Huff. There may be more but I can’t think of them this early. Have a great Canada Day.

    I love Iris Johansen’s books. Sometimes I got a while without reading one cuz I’m so far behind & he’s a little too prolific. Then I’ll pick on up & think, “Dangit, I’ve gotta catch up with this woman.” :babybook

    Speaking of Mounties, who remembers the CBS series Due South? Gosh, I loved that show. Pretty sure I’ve got all the seasons on DVD & now I’m in the mood. May have to pull them out & have myself a little marathon over the weekend. :beachball
