If You Believe Book Tour $25 Amazon or Paypal #Giveaway {Ends 1.4.15}

If you believeIf You Believe by Mya O’Malley

Sometimes love only comes once in a lifetime. For some lucky people, it is possible to love again.

Melody and Jack had shared an unforgettable love story that abruptly came to an end. Melody, left picking up the pieces, finds herself alone years later, with no hope or desire to date again. With the holiday season approaching, Melody finds it particularly difficult to get Jack out of her thoughts.

Jack isn’t sure if he’s an angel or a ghost, but his mind is set on one thing only, finding a new love for Melody by Christmas Eve at midnight. Easier said than done, with many obstacles to tackle, Jack underestimates how difficult the task is. With conflicting emotions, Jack takes it upon himself to find a man for a woman he still loves.

With the clock ticking as the holidays approach, this charming story of finding love the second time around will have you laughing and crying, but ultimately, it will have you believing in true love.

Excerpt

He stood, watching her, feeling every ounce of her pain, her anguish. He was probably the only one who understood what it was like to lose the person you loved, the person who was everything in the world to you.
If only he could just touch her, reach out to her, make her feel happy again. But that was just selfish on his part, wasn’t it? It wouldn’t be fair to Melody. Anybody could see that even three years later, she was still struggling. Hadn’t he always told her that if something happened to him, he would want her to fall in love again? It saddened him to think that if she continued down this cold and lonely path, she would be alone forever.
Melody had wanted it all, a home filled with children, a loving marriage. Thinking back to how happy they had once been, it broke his heart to see her this way, and it was always saddest to see her like this around the holidays, which were quickly approaching.
Jack’s mind was whirling with ideas, if only…He wished that he could talk to her just one more time, but alas, that was against the rules. If only there was some way, if only he could help her see the light. The corners of Jack’s mouth crept up as his mind took hold of an impossible thought. Would he be able to pull this off? If he did, could he ever be the same again? …

The electricity was undeniable. It was something that he should have considered, knowing how powerful their attraction and love had been in life. The look on Melody’s face was shock, confusion and curiosity all rolled into one. He would have to remember not to touch her again, it was simply too much of a risk to take. He knew that if his cover was revealed, the rules stated that he could never make contact with her again.
“What was…did you feel?” Poor Melody peered at him with those gorgeous light brown eyes of hers. There was something different about her eyes now; once they had been filled with spark and mischief, but now they were sadder, as if the light had somehow gone out. The same eyes that had looked at him with varying degrees of emotions for all those precious years they had shared together. The same eyes that held him spellbound right now. Jack didn’t know what to expect; he had no way of knowing how hard it would be to not reach out and touch this woman who was his wife, the love of his life. She evoked so much emotion in him that he had to turn his head before she saw the tears that sprang from his eyes. He had known this would be hard, but Melody took his breath away. Melody was always beautiful, but now she also appeared slightly sad and fragile. Looking down at her so many times before, he knew of her sadness, of course, but standing right here beside her, Jack could practically feel her strong emotions within his own heart.
Since he had gone to great lengths to disguise his true identity, Jack would have to do better than this. There was no way that she could recognize him by his appearance. He was once tall,
standing six foot three inches tall, maintaining a trim physique with messy light brown hair. He now stood barely five foot seven with wavy dark hair and a stocky build. The only thing about his appearance that Jack wasn’t able to change was his eyes. Nobody could change their eyes, because it was a fact that eyes were the windows to the soul.
Melody stood before him, her mouth gaping open as if she were caught in a spell. Think of something, quick, he told himself.
“Melody. I heard great things about your store. You see, I’m new to this area and I was just walking around and I figured I’d come check out your store.”
Melody appeared as if she had composed herself slightly. Clearing her throat, she finally spoke. “Where are you from, if you don’t mind me asking.”
He really should have been more prepared, how could he have forgotten how inquisitive Melody was?
“Um, I’m from down south, Florida.”
“Whereabouts? I have a friend from the Orlando area.” He should have also remembered her old college roommate from Orlando. Was Miami far enough away to field off further questions?
“Miami.”
“Miami? What brings you all the way up north to the New York area?”
Wow, she should have been a lawyer instead of owning a business. “My job. I work in the city now and live here in the suburbs.”
“What do you do for work?”
Thinking quickly on his feet, Jack steered away from his real occupation in life, working for an insurance company.
“I work for a pharmaceutical company. I’m in sales.” That ought to do it. He was reminded of a time when Melody had quizzed him nonstop when they had first met, he had felt like he
was interviewing for a job. They had laughed many times together over that memory.
“Oh. Well, who is it that recommended you to my store?” Her eyes peered cautiously through her striking auburn hair. The long hair that was always slightly out of place, always in her eyes. Wishing that he could reach out and touch her beautiful hair just once more, he reeled himself back in.
“Just some guy at a diner recently. He raved about the selection of books and the coffee. Hmm, if I recall, he also said that you have the best cheesecake in town.” That should do it. Melody loved to bake and could go on and on about her desserts.
And that she did, thank goodness for the distraction of a good cheesecake. When Melody had stopped gushing about how she prepared her cheesecake, she caught herself and chuckled.
“You must think I’m something, rambling on like this. I’m sorry, I just realized that I didn’t catch your name.”
My name, my name. Something unusual perhaps, but fitting for a friend. “Oliver.” Where did that come from?
“Oliver. Well, Oliver, I don’t usually do this because we are closed, but would you like to try some of the cheesecake? We happen to have some left over.”
“Oliver” could tell that he had gotten on Melody’s good side. She wasn’t a particularly outgoing person. As a matter of fact, she was usually pretty shy, but he was delighted to see that he had made an impression on her. Or perhaps it was just good business sense. Either way, Oliver had succeeded in completing the first step of his mission: meeting Melody.
****
Melody couldn’t recall the last time that she had felt so comfortable with a total stranger. It wasn’t like she was even physically attracted to him, Oliver wasn’t her type at all. He was
the complete opposite of Jack in every way. Well, in every way except for those captivating blue eyes. It was uncanny how much Oliver’s eyes reminded Melody of Jack’s eyes. It wasn’t just the color or the shape, but it was the intensity of his gaze. That was probably why Melody had felt so comfortable with him from the start.
“I know that you’re going to think this is forward, but would you mind showing me around town sometime?”
Melody sucked in a breath and inwardly panicked.
“My girlfriend is coming up in a few weeks and I wanted to show her around a bit.” He finished.
Melody’s shoulders visibly dropped as she let out a sigh. “Sure, yes, Oliver, I think that would be fine.”
Two finished slices of chocolate cheesecake and decaf coffees later, Melody realized this was the best evening she’d had in, well, just about three years.

Sweetworks Holiday Candy $1250 #Giveaway *25 Winners* {Ends 12/19} #SweetWorksHoliday

Disclosure: This Sweetworks Holiday Candy post is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by Sweetworks. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic.

Sweetworks Cupcakes

I apologize for my delay in joining this fabulous Sweetworks party, as many of you know, we’ve had some electricity and internet issues since the first winter storm hit before Thanksgiving, leaving us without power for several days. Apparently the electric company was able to erect some temporary lines, but there are many trees damaged, so when other storms hit, limbs break and take those down, or additional lines down. When I received my shipment of candy, I was SO EXCITED to share a great new pie recipe I had with you, that featured some of this candy as the main ingredient. I shopped for the ingredients, baked the crust, and poured in the filling. I had to leave to take my son to the doctor (we have some sickness plaguing us too), and while we were gone, the power went out, and the pie didn’t finish baking. It was ruined:/ Once I realized I wouldn’t have power back soon to make a new one, I went to plan B. Make some cake mix cookies, with the Sweetworks Candy mixed inside. I whipped up the batter, and put it in a sealed container, placed it in the snow on the deck to get chilled. Fast Forward a few days, no power. Time for Plan C! Pull out some cupcakes I’d made and frozen for a school party but not decorated, and pretty them up with Sweetworks Candy! As we were in the dark and had a foot of snow/ice outside, I had to get creative to nab a picture. I had the kids hold up flashlights for my “fancy” lighting! I’ve been unable to edit the picture, so what you see above is what I was able to capture on my iPhone. The cupcakes were a HIT with their classes, they loved having candy on top! All I can say at this point, is it’s not even winter yet, and I am over these Winter Weather Issues :)

Best of 2014 #Giveaway {Ends 12/18}

Best of 2014

Welcome to the Best of 2014 Giveaway Hop, hosted by Bookhounds and I am a Reader. This hop will run from December 11 through December 18, 2014.

I like to make everyone happy, especially during the holidays. But. It’s SO HARD to pick just a few books that will appeal to such a wide audience. I decided it would be more fun to let you pick, by visiting Amazon.com’s list of the Best Books of 2014, and tell me which book you’d like to have. I will send the winner, the book of their choice from this list, up to $20. They are broken down by category if you scroll down the page, so there should be something to appease everyone! Maybe you’ll find a new book to add to your wishlist, or see a book by a favorite author that was published this year and you missed it. I found a few of those myself and added them to my personal wishlist that I share with family when they ask me for ideas of things I’d like to have. I read a lot of good books this year, one I loved was Leaving Time!

We are a group of bloggers that specialize in giveaway hops – so stay with us and you will have many chances to win some amazing prizes! Each blogger participating in this hop has a giveaway with a prize value of at least $15 – and some are much more than that!

Yoda Ornament
The prize at this stop is a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament, the specific ornament will be chosen by Hallmark.

I have always loved Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments. When we first got married, we started an annual tradition of purchasing a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament each year for our tree. Once we started having children, we started purchasing them a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament as a Christmas Gift each year (1st Christmas, etc. then favorite activities or action figures, etc) and we keep them in a tub for each child so they can take them with them when they start their own families. This year, one child will be getting the Yoda Peekbuster Ornament featured above, another is getting an Olaf Ornament, and the third is getting an ornament of his favorite sports figure. Nick will be getting The Legendary Leg Lamp Ornament from A Christmas Story, and I chose the Snow Buddies Ornament for myself.

With the holiday season approaching, Melody finds it particularly difficult to get Jack out of her thoughts.
Jack isn’t sure if he’s an angel or a ghost, but his mind is set on one thing only, finding a new love for Melody by Christmas Eve at midnight.

Let Coupons.com help you save this Black Friday! #BlackFridayGiveaway

This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by Coupons. com. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic. Let Coupons.com help you save this Black Friday!

Hoover VacuumBlack Friday is one of the busiest shopping days of the year, when many stores offer rock bottom prices and deals to get shoppers in their doors. Over the years I’ve been able to score some really great deals at store sales on Black Friday. The best deal I’ve ever scored in a store was on a Hoover Vacuum Cleaner, at Kohls. It was an older model of the WindTunnel, several years ago, normally priced at just under $200. It was on sale for 60% off ($80), I had a coupon to save 30%, ($64), and a “Doorbuster” deal coupon for $20 off any $20+  purchase ($44), and then I had $30 in Kohls cash from a sale a couple of weeks prior to use. When it was all said and done, I got the $200 vacuum for $14! The best deal I ever scored online was a computer, with the specs that I needed for $500 (it was normally $1400+)!Dell Computer

My shopping strategy has always been to plan ahead. I make a list of each recipient, a general idea of what I want to gift them, and then browse the circulars to see if any of those items are on sale, or perhaps come across something they’d enjoy more. Once I have a list of what items I want from each store, I’d check for opening times and specific times that each item would be on sale, so I could plan my trip. I like to know that I need to be at Store A at 5am, Store B at 6am, etc. I go in, go directly to the products I need, get in line to pay, and move on to the next store. If I plan things right, and the crowds aren’t too bad, I could get everything on my list and be home by 9 or 10 in the morning with my shopping for the season complete!Kitchen Aid Mixer

As I get older, I prefer to do more of my shopping online from home in my PJ’s with no crowds to fight, and being able to apply coupon codes for discounts and free shipping to my door is a bonus. I really, really want a Kitchen Aid Mixer this year, and have been browsing the ads for the best price on one, so I can determine if it’s at all possible with our holiday budget this season. I am matching sales prices with coupon codes for discounts and free shipping from Coupons.com, and hope I can find the one I want at a price I can afford :)

Family Dollar Vaseline #FDRapidRenewal

This post is brought to you by Vaseline and Family Dollar, as part of a campaign with Global Influence. Regardless, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Vaseline Intensive CareLiving in New England, winters are HARSH. We have all noticed a difference in our skin since moving here, and it gets very dry in the winter time with all the forced hot air necessary to stay warm. We have learned that it’s better to be proactive in treating dry skin, before it gets cracked and starts bleeding. Vaseline brand products are honestly our preferred line of defense in battling this. My middle son, specifically, must put Vaseline Intensive Care Lotion on in the morning, 2-3 times a day at school, several times once he’s home, and at night we put the Vaseline Jelly on his hands and cover them with socks while he sleeps. We’ve tried many different combinations, and this seems to be what works best for him at this time. Outdoor sports season has just ended, and the dry skin flare up was bad, after being out in the elements each night at practices and games. Now that we’ve moved to Indoor sports, and started the aggressive treatment, the condition has improved. I wanted pictures, but, he’s 11, and not really wanting pictures of his hands on the internet :)

Have you taken the Vaseline Intensive Care Rapid Renewal Challenge? What was your result? What is your favorite Vaseline product?

I have a coupon y’all can print to get $1 off the purchase of the Vaseline family of products at Family Dollar! Just click the image below to go to their site to print it!

 Feel the difference in just 3 weeks! Post a tweet sharing how the new Vaseline Intensive Care Lotion has healed your skin using #FDRapidRenewal, for a chance to win a $30 Family Dollar gift card.

MATCHBOX® WRECKY THE WRECKING BUDDY™ – Walmart #Chosenbykids


This is a sponsored post written by me, on behalf of Sverve wand Walmart. I was reimbursed for the price of purchasing Matchbox® WRECKY the Wrecking Buddy™

.
Walmart Christmas Toyland Holiday EventOn Saturday, Nov 8, we loaded up Dora, our “Explorer” and went to my middle son’s basketball game, then headed south to the Salem, NH Walmart to attend the Holiday Toyland Event. It was crowded and full of families excited to see the toys that were available to be tested out and played with. While my children LOVE having their pictures taken and being featured here, I don’t want to share pictures of children that don’t belong to me here, and this section was packed!
Walmart Layaway

 

Among the toys being demonstrated were Dancing Olaf, Matchbox® WRECKY the Wrecking Buddy™, Lego Jr Batman, and My Little Pony Starter Kits.

Wrecky the Wrecking BuddyMatchbox® WRECKY the Wrecking Buddy™ is a really cool and fun interactive toy. He has lights, sounds, and moving parts just like a “real” dump truck! The kids all loved watching him drive around the aisle at the Toyland Holiday Event all by himself! Matchbox® WRECKY the Wrecking Buddy™ can act as a dump truck, carry cargo, clear the area, break barriers, and do a celebration dance. He is the perfect combination of construction truck and hard-working companion, and he has some pretty funny phrases that the kids couldn’t get enough of! Matchbox® WRECKY the Wrecking Buddy™ comes with a few blocks in his packaging, and he could easily transport Legos, Lincoln Logs, action figures, or any other small toys that your child would like to place in his spacious cargo area.

MATCHBOX® WRECKY THE WRECKING BUDDY™We purchased a Matchbox® WRECKY the Wrecking Buddy™, for just under $50, and brought him home with us! This is a toy perfect for kids 3 and over. Mine are slightly older than this (but they still had fun with him!) so be on the lookout for a giveaway featuring the adorable Matchbox® WRECKY the Wrecking Buddy™ soon!
