The duo of Caroline and Jamie McAfee are super-close. Like two peas in a pod close. Both mother and daughter work on the TV show GUT IT!- and both enjoy the perks and privileges of being a part of the McAfee Construction team- even though Caroline is divorced from Jamie’s dad, Roy.

Life is good for the ladies. The latest season of GUT IT! has wrapped, Jamie has recently become engaged and Caroline is looking forward to continuing hosting GUT IT! next season and some other projects she’s got her eye on.

{Giveaway} The Idea of Love by Patti Callahan Henry

giveaway giveaway

It’s only been in the past 3 years that I began reading Patti Callahan Henry’s books- but it feels like I have been reading them all my life. My first one, AND THEN I FOUND YOU, was probably the more serious of the ones I’ve read of hers- considering that it was based on a factual family story. Then last year THE STORIES WE TELL kept me company as I relaxed with a cool drink. And, in June (June 23rd to be exact) it’ll be time for THE IDEA OF LOVE. Having already read it- it’s going to be the right book for the pool and beach- the perfect bit of fluff in your sunshine-day!

And thanks to Patti’s publicists- Traveling With T has a copy to give to a lucky reader! Continue reading

Which is why I’m so pleased to share- we’re having a giveaway today! When Brittani @ St. Martin contacted me about THE GOOD, THE BAD and THE FURRY- I knew I had to get a giveaway copy for ya’ll!

Today I have an excerpt from PRETTY UGLY by Kirker Butler. According to Katie at St. Martin’s- it’s “super sharp satire about the pageant world and one of the kooky families that inhabits it.” After Katie sent me the excerpt, I began reading it (and I do not advise reading this excerpt while drinking anything! Disaster!)

After you read the excerpt, scroll on further down for the giveaway! Continue reading
