Free Book Friday (with a side of Funny)


A couple days late with this, but we’re going to laugh over some Mardi Gras/Lent funnies, anyway.


I wish I had a copy of Sandra Brown’s Fat Tuesday to give away…that’s the book I think of every. single. year. when Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday/Lent rolls around. :blowkiss   But this is what I grabbed from the pile, so it will have to do…King of the Desert, Captive Bride, a Harlequin Presents by Jane Porter.

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.)

PhotobucketWinner 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! :curses

(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.)

    :rolf Love the funnies!! Fat Tuesday is great, have read it a few times! And if you’re interested in ‘Mardi Gras’ books, have one for you. Not a romance but a mystery, New Orleans Mourning by Julie Smith. Amazing book full of local color.

    • Heidi says:

      Hey, Jay…how are you after your last bought in the hospital. Been meaning to send a FB msg, but keep forgetting. :oops I hope it was a simple procedure & the news was positive! :kitty

      • jay says:

        Yup, this doctor was like Speedy Gonzales. 45 minutes. In and out. It is benign, thank goodness. :jumping He must have impressed my operating nurse. She is having him do her surgery, too.

        :blowkiss Thanks for your support and friendship! :heart

    Happy FBF!!

    Heidi, I got my Happy Bookers MyStery prize in the mail today. Thanks so much!

    Love the funnies.

    • Heidi says:

      Oh, good! Hope you enjoy it. :kitty

      Thankfully, that was easy to slip in the mail. The FBF & guest blog prizes have proved slightly more problematic. They’re still sitting on my counter, *desperately* in need of sending. :sick

  21. Cindy Rushford says:

    so I assume I missed FBF but that is ok . I wanted to wish you a great weekend anyways. :thumbsup :whip
