Friday Finds


Virginie Says…

I was on Twitter today (@FleurDeMar) when someone I’m following posted a RT to win a free book.  Naturally, I RT’d and was lucky enough to be one of three to win!  I can’t wait to read the book – check back for my review!

The book is Gold and Fishes by Donna Carrick.

goldandfishesThe following is taken from her site:

For Aid worker Ayla Harris, her first overseas mission to post-tsunami Indonesia presents the perfect opportunity for escape. A failed romance with a married man and a strained relationship with her twin sister have left her suffering from a general sense of ‘detachment’.

But a late night call on the eve of her departure reminds Ayla that the bonds of love can be tenacious. It turns out that her wheeler-dealer brother-in-law, Robert Trasque, has gone missing in Thailand.

However, it is the injured orphan Mahdi who restores Ayla’s soul with a single word: mother. In his child’s eyes she discovers the extent of her connection to the world.

From the devastated tourist beaches of Southeast Asia to the graveyard that was Banda Aceh, Ayla sets out on a personal mission – to find her sister’s gold-hungry husband and return him to his family.
