First Impressions by Michelle Sutton GIVEAWAY!! CLOSED

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Christy-- Southern Sassy Girl for winning.


First Impressions
by Michelle Sutton

-information taken from the Desert Breeze Publishing website

Sammie Carpenter understands how a uniform influences behavior. Wearing her Army fatigues puts her in the mindset of a soldier and donning her Class-A Uniform always helps her shift into Captain Mode. So what harm could come from her dressing like a saloon girl and strutting through the streets of Tombstone? She didn't know how to flirt to save her life, and she wasn't getting any younger.

When she met the lonesome stud cowboy, Jimmy, she knew he was the one. So why was their communication always so awkward? Couldn't he see that she was interested in him? No matter how hard she tried to win him over, she couldn't seem to get him to see past his first impression of her. But Sammie didn't give up easily. Somehow she would make him see that they were meant to be together, but how can she do that when all of her plans keep falling apart? 


You can read an excerpt of the book HERE


Michelle Sutton, otherwise known as the Edgy Inspirational Author, is the former Editor-in-chief of Christian Fiction Online Magazine, a member of ACFW, a social worker by trade, and a prolific reader/book reviewer/blogger the rest of the time.  She has eleven contracted novels, four of which are currently available.

She lives in Arizona with her husband of nineteen years and her two teenaged sons. Michelle is also the author of It's Not about Me (2008) and It's Not About Him (Sheaf House 2009).


MY REVIEW 


First Impressions is not the first book I have read by Michelle Sutton and I sure hope it won't be my last! I thoroughly enjoy Michelle's writing. Michelle writes stories that are closer to reality than a lot of Christian fiction.  The edginess of the story makes it believable. I am not a big fan of unrealistic "everyone is perfect" Christian romances so this book is just perfect for me. I loved the two main characters and found them easy to relate to... like people I could actually know in real life. First Impressions is a well written, fun, and quick read. 

This is the first book in the Tombstone Treasures series and I look forward to the next book coming out. I would definitely recommend ALL of Michelle Sutton's books!
