Giveaway: Stray Affections by Charlene Ann Baumbich

About the Book: The last thing that Cassandra Higgins expects out of her Sunday is to be mesmerized at a collectors’ convention by a snowglobe. She’s enjoying some shopping time, with husband Ken at home tending their brood of four young boys, when she’s utterly charmed by the one-of-a kind globe containing figures of three dogs and a little girl with hair the color of her own. She can’t resist taking the unique globe home– even if means wrestling another shopper for it!

The beautiful snowglobe sparks long-dormant memories for Cassie, of her beloved Grandpa Wonky, the stray she rescued as a child, and the painful roots of her combative relationship with her mother, “Bad Betty” Kamrowski. Life in Wanonishaw, Minnesota is never dull, though, and Cassie keeps the recollections at bay, busy balancing her boys, her home daycare operation, and being a good friend to best pal Margret. But after a strange–flurrious, as Cassie deems it–moment happens with the remarkable snowglobe, Cassie and the people she loves are swirled into a tumultuous, yet grace-filled, and life-changing journey. You can learn more about Stray Affections at the publisher's website.

I loved TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE by Kristan Higgins. I felt so happy at the ending that I turned back to the first page and reread the whole book. :-)

The last feel good book I read was The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind, a true story about a 14 year old boy in Malawi who had to drop out of school because his family couldn't afford his schooling but was able to created a windmill after reading about them in a library book.

Was The Time Traveller's Wife a feel good book? I know it spoke to me in the most extraordinary way...and I still think of it as the best book I have ever read.

The most recent "feel good" book that I read was "A Dog Named Christmas" by Greg Kincaid. I stumbled across it at the library and enjoyed it so very much. There's no way I can describe what it's about, but I highly recommend it.

I would love to read "Stray Affections" and appreciate the chance to win a copy, Amy.

I have to say, I reread Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and that was the last feel good book I've read.
Great contest, the book looks good!

I would love to be entered in the drawing. I've heard great things about this book.

I would say the last feel good book I read was Wesley the Owl. I'm an animal lover and the book cracked me up.
