******* October 24, 2017 UPDATE *******
It appears I made my clues more difficult than I thought. So to make this easier and more fun, I am adding a list of titles to choose from complete with links to each book’s review. (See below.) Every title in the list matches one of the clues and is only used once.
For those who already tried to answer, please email me at writeKathleenDenly@gmail.com for a special thank you gift!
Also, I am EXTENDING THE ENTRY DEADLINE to: midnight PST October 31st, 2017
Hi everyone! Today I thought I’d try something a little fun by posting clues to some of the best romance novels I’ve reviewed so far and seeing how many you can name.
How it works: You read the clues and then type your answers in the comments below. Then next week I’ll post the correct answers so everyone can see them and announce the winners. Entries (your answers) must be complete by midnight PST Saturday, October 28, 2017 midnight PST October 31st, 2017. Winners must contact me at writeKathleenDenly@gmail.com within 24 hours of the announcement and provide an email address for prize delivery.
You do not have to get every answer right to be entered to win! Just try your best and have FUN! 🙂 (HINT: You can find links to my reviews in the menu at the top.)
Why you should play: Well, first of all it’s fun to test your book knowledge. Secondly, from those who answered, I’ll be picking up to 3 winners at random to receive a $5 Amazon gift card!
Why you should share this game on social media: More players = more prizes awarded! (5 entries = 1 winner, 10 entries = 2 winners, 15+ entries = 3 winners)
Mystery Book #1
This book deals with racial issues present in 1875 Colorado Territory. The primary themes are accepting forgiveness and learning to adjust when your dreams don’t turn out to be what you imagined they were.
Mystery Book #2
The way the author of this book grows the heroine from a self-absorbed, social-ladder-climbing, destructively selfish young woman, into an others-focused, humbly grateful, aid-to-the-poor-and-downtrodden, generous young woman, is something to be truly admired.
Mystery Book #3
This book questions the definition of strength and courage. My favorite part of this book has to be the women. Man, I love these women! I just want to be their friends. And more importantly, I want them on my side in a fight!
Mystery Book #4
This novel dares to include sensitive topics which other books rarely include. It does so in a way that is not at all preachy, but instead feels very personal and real to the hero and heroine of this story. This book asks the reader to define true community and addresses faith in the face of tragedy and suffering, as well as the struggles of discerning God’s purpose for our lives.
Mystery Book #5
While reading the first chapter of this book, I felt like a fish on a line being reeled in. And it just kept going. I did not want to put this book down. Instead of viewing the Revolutionary War from the distant, almost omniscient and impersonal perspective we were taught in school, this story takes us into the home and personal lives of just one family.
Mystery Book #6
This book is the third book in a series and features one of my Top 5 Heroes! The primary themes are prejudice, forgiveness, and the cost of hate.
Mystery Book #7
This book features quotes from Pygmalion.
Mystery Book #8
This book is set in a women’s colony and features an atypical hero (also one of my Top 5 Heroes).
Mystery Book #9
This book’s hero is a young Chippewa widow.
Mystery Book #10
This book featured everyone from a popular fairy artist to a retired missionary.
