Book Review and Giveaway: "When We Last Spoke" by Marci Henna

I enjoyed the opportunity to review the book "When We Last Spoke" by Marci Henna, a part of Marci's Fireside, Texas book series. This 232-page softcover book takes the reader on a heartfelt memory journey spanning decades in the lives of two sisters, orphaned when their father was killed in the Vietnam War. I laughed and cried at different times throughout this book, and to me that is a sign of a story being the perfect mix of life itself, both times of happiness and sadness.  

Humor, heartbreak, and triumph are served with whipped cream and lots of local nuts in this heartwarming tale of family, friendship, and forgiveness in Fireside, Texas.
Meet Juliet Cranbourne, local radio personality and owner of a whimsical kitchen gadget store, and her sister Evangeline, a fruit tree geneticist who works for Oregon State University. When a rift due to their orphaned past affects their sisterhood, Juliet convinces Evangeline to come home for Christmas and choose headstones to honor grandparents Walt
(a tenderhearted, good looking rancher) and Ruby (a blue-ribbon fiddler, fabulous cook, and expert in the art of making family feel loved).  As they cruise through Fireside in Ruby's Thunderbird, Juliet hopes that healing memories will somehow smooth rough roads ahead. Does the tremendous love that marked Walt and Ruby's lives still have the power to renew their sisterhood and help them find their place in the world?"
Here is a beautiful preview trailer about this book:

As a longtime Oklahoma girl, the Texas connection in this story appealed to me from page 1. The author paints through her words a vivid picture of the joys and difficulties faced by this family not only during one stage of their lives, but through several periods in their lives. Juliet and Ruby are colorful characters I immensely enjoyed and they reminded me of several special women throughout my life. It was a beautiful read as a family memory journey and it comes with my highest recommendation. I now look forward to reading the other books in this Fireside, Texas series. 

About the author:

Marci Henna was born in Austin, Texas and lived as a child in Kenya, East Africa with the Wakamba tribe where her parents managed a medical research station. She later moved to the Hill Country ranch which has been in the family since the 1800's and currently lives in Austin.

Sponsored: Groupon Coupons for Saving Money

Disclaimer: I was financially compensated for this sponsored post. All opinions expressed in this blog post are my own.  

Groupon is one of my favorite money-saving websites for deals at area restaurants, local services and special attractions both while on vacation as well as where I live. It was an invaluable part of my Las Vegas vacation last fall. Did you know that Groupon offers a free coupon resource that allows you to find coupons from many well-known retailers? Even better, the coupons are verified. You can use the deals right on your mobile phone device.

Groupon Coupons is a completely free resource. I love that you do not have to pay for a membership or other fees. One of my favorite features is being able to search for coupons in my local community and nearby cities I visit often.  

Right now, I am getting my Valentine's Day gift list ready for friends and loved ones, and Groupon Coupon has an entire section of deals for Valentine's Day Gifts that is an invaluable part of my money-saving experience. Today I found great deals for FTD Flowers, Shari's Berries and Zales sure to make the Valentine's recipients on my list smile.

Speaking of treats, one of my favorite stores on Groupon Coupons to seek out available deals is their site for Target coupons and deals. I found a great Valentine's Day promo code for $5 Off Valentine's Day Candy With $20+ Order and free shipping on any order of $25 or more! 
For my husband's valentine gift, I found great deals on men's clothing by visiting the Jos. A. Bank page on Groupon Coupons. With that, my gift list is done!

What stores are you looking forward to finding money-saving deals with Groupon Coupons?
