Holiday Shopping Event Day 6 Part 2 McKenzie

DAY 6
HOLIDAY SHOPPING EVENT
PART 2
MCKENZIE BY PENNY ZELLER

I have one other giveaway here for you all today. Then I am off until Monday. Ahh:)
When I asked for authors who would be interested in a feature during my event, Penny Zeller offered to giveaway one of her books, McKenzie, to one of my blog readers. This book looks very interesting. I love historical novels and this fits the bill.

Desperate times call for desperate measures is the reasoning that prompts McKenzie Worthington, a young lady of Boston's high society, to respond to an ad for a mail-order bride for a man in the Montana Territory. McKenzie is desperate, after all, to save her beloved younger sister, Kaydie, from her evil, abusive husband, who robs banks for a living. And so, it is with reckless determination that McKenzie runs away from the comforts of home and hearth to head West and meet her new husband-whom she'll divorce, of course, after she rescues her sister.

Desperate times call for desperate measures is the reasoning that also prompts Zachary Sawyer, a rugged rancher after God's own heart, to post an ad for a mail-order bride in various newspapers across the country. Managing a ranch and caring for his adoptive son, Davey, has become more than one man can handle alone, and Zach prays for God to send him a wife with whom to build a life and share his dreams.

When McKenzie arrives at Zach's ranch, she immediately puts her plan in motion, searching for her sister and doing all she can to keep her new husband from forming an attachment. But his persistent kindness and significant self-sacrifices begin to change her heart-and ruin her plans. God has a way of working things out to the good of those who love Him, though, as McKenzie and Kaydie will soon see.

Like I said, sounds neat. Now, if you would like to purchase a copy of the book for gifts, or you don't win it, please check out Amazon. But for those of you who would like to try your hand at winning it, follow directions below:) Thank you Penny for offering a copy of your book for my event.

What historical by Mary Connealy don't I like? "Doctor in Petticoats" was a pretty good one though!
