Tamera Alexander review & GIVEAWAY! CLOSED

This giveaway is now CLOSED! Congratulations to Maria D. for winning.

About the Book (taken from Tamera Alexander's website)

What happens when the realization of a dream isn't what you imagined... and the secret you've spent a lifetime guarding is finally laid bare?

Determined to become one of the country's premier newspaper photographers, Elizabeth Westbrook travels to the Colorado Territory to capture the grandeur of the mountains surrounding the remote town of Timber Ridge. She hopes, too, that the cool, dry air of Colorado, and its renowned hot springs, will cure the mysterious illness that threatens her career, and her life.

Daniel Ranslett, a former Confederate sharpshooter, is a man shackled by his past, and he'll do anything to protect his land, and his solitude. When an outspoken Yankee photographer captures an image that appears key to solving a murder, putting herself in danger, Daniel is called upon to repay a debt. He's a man of his word, but repaying that debt could bring secrets from his past to light.
Forced on a perilous journey together, Daniel and Elizabeth's lives intertwine in ways neither could have imagined when first they met . . . from a distance.


Here is the book Trailer:


Book #2- Beyond This Moment



About the book (taken from Tamera Alexander's website)

Lives are made up of tiny steps. Some are chosen for us; some we choose.
All hold the power to change who we become—
but only if we let them.

When Dr. Molly Whitcomb, Professor of Romance Languages, steps off the train in Colorado Territory, she makes a choice—one that goes against everything she stands for. Yet it’s the only choice that offers her a chance to regain a fraction of all she’s lost.

Sheriff James McPherson’s instincts about people rarely miss the mark. He senses Professor Whitcomb is hiding something. He just doesn’t know what. When James learns Molly’s secret, his own reputation is undermined. But when Molly Whitcomb’s reinvented life begins to unravel, it threatens his job, the stability of Timber Ridge, and what he always knew to be true about himself.

MY REVIEW

I enjoyed these two books. Alexander tells a good story :) I found the stories to be compelling and I appreciated the characters. Both books are very easy to read and the storyline is easy to follow. Alexander is very descriptive in her writing and it makes it simple to picture the story in your minds-eye. If you enjoy historical fiction than these are the books for you!

I have my Advanced Reading Copy of "From A Distance" to offer one of you today.
