“An Exciting Mystery” (and a chance to win)

December 28th, 2012

The blog tour for Elizabeth Ludwig’s No Safe Harbor ended a few weeks ago. Be sure to stop by the tour post and read what the reviewers thought of book.

If you missed the Facebook party on 12/6, you can get caught up here. Elizabeth shared her inspiration behind the story, we chatted a lot about No Safe Harbor and history, and Elizabeth shared a bit about book two in the Edge of Freedom series!

Congratulations to all our winners from the Facebook party, as well as our big Kindle Paperwhite winner, Veronica Warner from Fayetteville, Georgia.

Be sure to keep up with Elizabeth on her website for news on her upcoming projects (there’s lots of fun stuff on her website such as: hometown mysteries, deleted scenes and some of her research. You’ll want to check it out!)

And if you wanted to purchase No Safe Harbor, you can do so here.

    A special memory with a sibling.
    Ten years ago my brother suffered a traumatic brain injury in an accident.
    When he was released from hospital and rehab, I went to stay with him and his wife for a while. My ‘job’ to teach him to re-learn simple things, like walking, eating, and dressing himself.
    Brother was determined and did well. We had some very special moments as I worked with him and shared memories of things this injury deprived him of.

  • Anne Gooch says:

    I am an only child but the Lord blessed me with 3 brother-in-laws and 1 sister-in-law that I consider my brothers and sister. I really can’t pinpoint a special moment because anytime I am with them its special.

  • I’m an only child, but I’d love to win the book!

  • Carrie says:

    I have lots of great memories with my brother. But one of my favorite memories is…we would sit out in our front yard and act out different scenes for the passengers of cars that would drive by. It usually involved Eric pretending to sleep and me swatting him with a book and then him chasing me around the yard.

  • Catherine Lee says:

    I have a very special sibling memory. 14 years ago this month, my big brother donated his bone marrow to me for a transplant. On Dec. 21, 1998, he had his marrow extracted–a doctor on one side and a nurse practitioner on the other–from both hips in Atlanta. For Christmas, back in NJ with his wife and 5 children, he mooned them all to show them his bruises–black & blue & yellow & purple. It’s not too often that one needs to ask a sibling for such a donation–of body parts or bodily fluids. It has given us a very special “anniversary” each December.

  • My oldest brother and I both took dance lessons. I needed it to strengthen and straighten my feet and legs (which it did) and Mom just signed up brother to take them. I remember many things about that period of our life…. walking 17 city blocks to dance lessons, walking home afterward; dance recitals with fancy costumes that glittered (this was in the 1940s); brother dancing a Russian Cossack dance; my ballet lessons in pointe (he didn’t take ballet),my tap and acrobatics lessons), his dancing with the big girls and twirling one over his head. He is deceased (at an early age) and I miss being able to share these memories in person with him.

    Favorite memory is of me and my two sisters…singing in the car on family trips…any song and for hours..we’d just sing sing sing.

  • Jasmine A. says:

    I was about 13-14 and my younger brother was about 11 when my kitten died. We had just finished burying the kitten when my brother came up to me crying and he was carrying his kitten (the littermate to mine), he gave me his own little kitten. That is the best present I have ever gotten. He gave up his much loved pet to help ease some of my pain at losing mine.

  • Charity U says:

    I have four younger siblings, and am still in my teens, so I’m still making those memories! One of my recent favs is going shopping with my one brother…we went out for lunch, did some Christmas shopping, and did a few other errands — a great time for just the two of us. 🙂

  • I rememeber one time when I was about 8 or so, my older sister and I were with my dad in his truck on our way to church. The song “Jingle Bell Rock” by Amy Grant Came on the radio and my dad let us turn it all the way up. We were singing at the top of our lungs and my dad was laughing so hard. It was so much fun and I’ll never forget it because its one of the first memories I have of bonding with my older sister.

  • My brother and I went to Europe last fall visiting Rome, London, and Paris. It was a ton of fun!

    My much older sister was married and she bought me a doll for christmas. Fifty years later I passed this doll to her granddaughter and great-granddaughter.

  • A favorite memory…. The times when my sister and I were places with no other kids. We became each other’s best friends, even though, under normal circumstances, we often fought! Those were truly good times.:) Lori

  • Keisha says:

    I loved the simple days of playing in the sprinklers with my sister in the summer, swinging on swings in the backyard in the spring and playing in the snow during the winter when we were children.
