Candlelight Reads blog is hosting its very first blog hop and in this season of hearts and swooning, the focus is on “Home is Where the Heart Is.” Most of us know what constitutes home for ourselves.  We all know who – or what – holds our hearts, and that is where home is for us.
But, some of us may not have a home. We may be wanderers. We could be anything really. Just like our characters or the characters we’ve read about.

So, eight bloggers have joined forces for four days, February 15-18, to give you an insight into what makes a home for our characters or characters we’ve read about! 

In my Christian romance novel series Cascade Brides: Three Novels of Faith, Hope, and Charity, three estranged sisters named for the mountains, each in the far-flung reaches of the state, are drawn back to their childhood home in Sisters, Oregon by men who ultimately help the siblings realize the blessings of family bonds.
Once lucky commenter will be randomly chosen to win a Kindle copy of the series.    
Oh, and don’t forget to enter the Rafflecopter below for the grand prizes!  

Now what are those prizes?

1st Grand Prize: $40 Gift Certificate from your favorite eBookstore
2nd Grand Prize: $40 Gift Certificate from your favorite eBookstore
3rd Grand Prize: A Swag Pack that contains paperbacks, ebooks, bookmarks, cover flats, magnets, and more!

Any time from February 15th, 8:00 a.m. CT to February 18th midnight CT you can enter both individual blogger prizes and the Grand Prize by commenting on each blog. Be sure to give us an email address so we can contact you if you win.
Can't wait to hop with you!

  5. For me home is that place where I am loved, where I can be myself. It is somewhere comfortable, like warm and fuzzy slippers. It is where I feel safe, cared for and comforted.
