Happy Release Day, Planting Hope!

Welcome Everyone! Thank you for joining in my celebration of Planting Hope‘s Book Birthday! As always, I have plenty of treats on hand, including several varieties of chocolate! My hero, Luke, who owns a candy store, insisted on only serving the best! The credit for decorating my tables with beautiful floral creations goes to my heroine, Jess, who has a gift for creating eye-catching gardens.

And, what’s a celebration without a giveaway?! One that would make for a delightfully romantic evening, in my humble opinion.

See below for giveaway details

The giveaway  includes:

So, how do you enter to win this romance-worthy prize? Just use the Rafflecopter form below which includes answering both of these questions in the comments section:

What is your favorite type of chocolate?
What is your favorite flower?

Naturally, my favorite chocolate comes from Great! Lakes Candy Kitchen, a quaint, family-owned candy store along Lake Superior’s North Shore in Minnesota that was the inspiration for Planting Hope.

My favorite flower is the lilac, the flower that ushers in gorgeous spring fragrance!

Thank you for celebrating with me!

About Planting Hope ~

When flowers and chocolate collide, romance is sure to bloom!

Family has always been the one constant in Jess Beaumont’s messy life, so when her parents separate, she puts “Operation: Planting Hope” into action. All she has to do is recreate the circumstances that helped her parents fall in love. Unfortunately, that includes the daunting task of restoring the family cabin’s gardens. When the handsome candy store owner shows up to help, she’s certain she has all the elements required for her parents’ love to bloom again. After all, flowers and chocolate are the perfect ingredients for romance.

Luke Harrison has spent his life trying to win his father’s approval, and a promotion in the family land development business would be a step in that direction. But when he inherits Gran’s candy store, his dreams of being promoted start melting away. Then his dad dangles a Vice President position in front of Luke, with one caveat—acquire the land on both sides of Gran’s store within five months, including the Beaumont cabin, and the promotion is his.

What at first seemed a simple challenge for Luke becomes a tangled mess. Buying the Beaumont cabin and land will nip his blossoming romance with Jess in the bud. Even worse, it could end her parents’ marriage. But if he doesn’t succeed, he could be trading in his corner office for the corner candy store.

  1. My favorite kind of chocolate is Lindt chocolate. I love every kind and treat myself when I go to Florida for the winter.
    My favorite flower is the daisy. Just love how they look.
    Happy Release day!

  2. You had me at Chocolate, but then you add flowers and something that sounds like a parent trap and I am SO THERE!!!!! LOL! Any who….I nearly LOVE all chocolate (dark doesn’t always appeal to me, but even a really good white is on me list) My favorite is milk chocolate. Godiva used to make (but to my great sadness they don’t anymore) a milk chocolate raspberry filled starfish! IT WAS THE BEST!!!! Now all they make is truffles. :/ But I digress.

    My flower faves also range. My most favorite are Tiger Lilies, Black eyed Susans, and Dandelions.

    Many Blessings, Amada (a.m.a.th.a)

    1. LOL! It does sound like a parent trap!

      I hear ya about loving all chocolate. I’m right there with you. That Godiva starfish sounds delectable. How sad that it isn’t sold anymore.

      Love that you Dandelions are one of your favorite flowers. 🙂

      Thank you for celebrating with me!

  4. I’m not to picky when it comes to chocolate! I do love a good Lindt Chocolate Truffle… as for flowers, roses are just so lovely=) I do love to see the daffodils coming up in the spring outside.

  5. I love all types of chocolate, but I especially enjoyed the chocolate we had while we were in Switzerland. They have such yummy chocolate. Lindt chocolate is Swiss, so that’s one of my favorite kinds here.

    My favorite flowers are perennial phlox and asiatic lilies. They are both so gorgeous.

  6. Hello Brenda! My favorite type of chocolate is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. My favorite flower is the Peony! I love the way they smell. Thank you

  7. I love dark chocolate and Chocolove 70 percent is my go-to brand. I also love dark choocolate covered blueberries made by Sunridge Farms in the bulk health food sectionof my grocery store (I doubt if these are really healthy). I love my antique roses, wihich have tons of fragrance. I have a salmon color & a pink one. You would. E a new author for me, and I always enjoy that. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity.

  8. My favorite candy has to be my Mom’s recipe for English Toffee Bars or my super fast and easy microwave peanut brittle.

    My favorite flower is really two. I love hydrangeas because I love the flower and they remind me of my Grandma who always grew them but I love the gardenia for the amazing smell.
