Ever had one of those days when it seems time slips by way too fast?
With summer well underway and our temperatures range from 90 to just above 100 degrees (F), it seems time is flying by at an alarming pace. I turn around and the week is gone and there is still so much to do. Before I know it, summer will be gone and winter will have arrived.
I bring this up because time slipped by and several giveaways are up. In addition, I have two new giveaways to announce.
First up let me announce the winners, next I’ll tell you about the new giveaways, and then we’ll talk again.

TRICKS (ISBN: 9780446505888) by David Rosenfelt. Thanks to Valerie and the folks at Hachette Book Group I have three copies to giveaway.
Attorney Andy Carpenter is about to represent an adorable Bernese mountain dog puppy, whose owner was brutally murdered, in a custody fight. Few can rival Andy's affection for dogs, and he's determined to keep Waggy from falling into the wrong hands. But this playful pup possesses a valuable secret that some people will resort to violence to obtain. It will take more than Andy's usual courtroom theatrics to save Waggy, including help from the lawyer's golden retriever, Tara. Andy soon discovers that everyone around him is in danger, including his longtime girlfriend, Laurie--and only some high-risk new tricks will save those he cherishes most.
