My 2 year bloggiversary came and went last month with very little celebration. The reason? I completely forgot about it! I blame the Canucks and their most excellent Stanley Cup run. If there is a good reason to forget ones bloggiversary, that’s it!
Now that I’m on the ball, I have some great things planned for my faithful readers and today, and what better way to start than with a giveaway!
I just adore the ladies at Sourcebooks. They are so wonderful to work with and extremely generous. Danielle has kindly offered two Barbara Erskine books for one lucky person!
Whispers in the Sand: (From the author’s site)
Recently divorced, Anna Coburn decides to cheer herself up by retracing a journey her great-grandmother, Louisa, a renowned artist, made in the mid-nineteenth century – a Nile cruise from Luxor to the Valley of the Kings. Anna carries with her two of Louisa’s possessions – an ancient Egyptian scent bottle, and an illustrated diary of the original cruise that has lain unread for a hundred years.
As she follows in Louisa’s footsteps, Anna discovers in the diary a wonderful love story from the Victorian past, and the chilling, more distant secret of the little glass bottle. Meanwhile, two men from the tour party are showing a disturbing interest in these mementos, and developing an unfriendly rivalry for Anna’s attention. And, most frightening of all, Anna finds herself the victim of a haunting, a spectral presence that grows in strength and threat as the dramatic stories from three different eras intertwine in a terrifying climax…
Lady of Hay: (From the author’s site)

But when she herself submits to a simple hypnotic session, she suddenly finds herself reliving the experiences of Matilda, Lady of Hay, the wife of a baron at the time of King John.
As she learns of Matilda’s unhappy marriage, her love for the handsome Richard de Clare and the brutal threats of death at the hands of King John, it becomes clear that Jo’s past and present are hopelessly entwined and that, eight hundred years on, a story of secret passion and unspeakable treachery is about to begin again…
