Beach Dreams

I’m really excited about this month’s giveaway: a handmade jewelry set and Beach Dreams by Trish Perry. Trish is a member of the ACFW and Beach Dreams is her newest release. Her website describes the book as:

Tiffany LeBoeuf seriously needs to get away. She has just lost her mother to cancer, and she returns home to find herself fired for devoting the past three months to her mother’s care. Grieving and stressed, Tiffany seeks rest for her body and soul at a cozy beach house in San Diego.

A scheduling mix-up causes a double booking, and Tiffany ends up sharing the house with a woman named Eve. When Eve’s boyfriend, Jeremy Beckett, arrives to surprise Eve, he surprises Tiffany as well.

Jeremy and Tiffany share a brief history, and it’s not a pretty one. They also share a mutual attraction, and it’s not a comfortable one. Jeremy settles in at the beach house next door, intent on making his love life right. What happens after that surprises them all.

Sounds pretty good doesn’t?

Part II of the prize package is a handmade necklace, bracelet and earring set. (The set below has pierced earrings, but I can change them to clip-on if you prefer.) It’s a little hard to see in this photo, but it is three strands of gold seed beads, brown and cream pearlized beads with a brown clear drop. I hope you like it.

    Page, I would LOVE to win Trish’s book. Her books are hysterical. More than that, tho, I would love to win the necklace set for my 16 yr old. She love jewelery, unlike her mom who never changes anything. I’m so boring in that area. :o) The set is delicately perfect for her! So please enter me!

    In Him,

    You’re entered, Mimi! I know what you mean about never changing jewelry; I was in a rut, too. Then a young mom who worked in the next desk decided that I would be her new project!

    Bless her heart, now I have a box full of costume jewelry – so much fun!

    Perhaps if you win, you two can share the necklace. πŸ™‚

    Hey Melissa!

    Thanks for entering and thanks for letting us know about your contest, too.

    I think it’s great that we’ve got all the folks promoting Christian and inspirational fiction. Our world needs someone to point the Way.

    Let’s all get the word out!

    You entered! I’m so glad you visited with me. πŸ™‚


    Thank you so much! I hope the winner likes it, too. Although if browns aren’t a fav of the winner, I’ve made some other pieces: aqua mother-of-pearl with chandelier earrings, three-strand gold bugle beads with dangle earrings or multi-colored seed beads with chandelier earrings. She can choose any of the four sets.

    The jewelry set is so pretty! You do a beautiful job!
    Beach Dreams is a book I’ve been wanting to read, but haven’t been able to get through my library. So I would love to have my own copy!
    Thank you for this contest!
