The Sound of Diamonds (Kindle) Book Giveawy

Today I was able to feature a wonderful debut novel by the talented Rachelle Rea titled The Sound of Diamonds. Given that I thought the book was exceptionally good (not that I expected any less) and the fact that I was later in reviewing it than I should have been, it seemed a fun idea to host a little giveaway for Rachelle's debut. 

But, as usual, before we get to the awesome details of the book, let's talk about those boring rules.

The giveaway(s) is open to all readers. I do ask that anyone who leaves a comment under "anonymous," please leave the same name you enter into the widget in your comment - it's not easy to try and match comments when there is no name and in fairness to everyone else, I want to be able to be sure everyone who used the Rafflecopter correctly has a fair chance at winning against those who abuse it - there have been a few people I could not verify. So please, I don't mean to overwhelm, but just keep this in mind when entering future giveaways. I'd sure appreciate it! Winner(s) will have 48 hours to respond to the email notification before another winner is randomly chosen.

To be entered in the giveaway, just enter as much or as little as you like into the Rafflecopter widget.

The Sound of Diamonds Synopsis: In Reformation-era England, a converted rogue wants to restore his honor at whatever cost. Running from a tortured past, Dirk Godfrey knows he has only one chance at redemption.

An independent Catholic maiden seeking refuge in the Low Countries finds herself at the center of the Iconoclastic Fury. Jaded by tragedy, Gwyneth's only hope of getting home is to trust the man she hates, and she soon discovers her poor vision is not the only thing that has been blinding her.

But the home Gwyneth knew is not what she once thought. When a dark secret and a twisted plot for power collide in a castle masquerading as a haven, will the saint and the sinner hold to hope...or be overcome?

  1. I have too many current reads to list them all! My favorite historical is still Lori Wick's Donovan's Daughter. It's my second favorite book EVER (not counting kids books).

    1. I remember those Lori Wick books! They were really good if I recall correctly. Someday a re-read may be in order. :)

  2. I'm branching out and trying new to me authors lately. Just finished Cry of the Peacock by VR Christiansen, which is a Jane Austen style novel. Just started Venture Untamed by RH Russell. I'm very interested in reading this book as well.

    1. That's always a fun journey, Brittaney. I haven't heart of either one of the authors you mention, however Jane Austen piques my curiosity! Thanks. :)

  3. You, friend, are a gem. Thank you so much for being awesome. :)

    1. Thank YOU Rachelle for writing this novel. It's truly beautiful. :)

  4. I am reading a couple right now. The Curiosity Keeper and Beyond the Ashes. Both really good!

    1. Those do look really good, Nancy! Great historical books indeed, I am certain. Plus, the authors are talented people, which makes any story all the better. :)

  5. Really excited about this book! My current read is A Worthy Pursuit by Karen Witemeyer and I am loving it! I love historical fiction so there is no way I could pick a favorite!

    1. I think you'll really like it, Abbi. Rachelle has a beautiful prose and for me, the story just flowed effortlessly which is the kind of historical novel I most admire and enjoy. :)

      I hear you on not being able to pick a favorite book. I struggle with that... a lot. ;)

  6. I'm currently reading Melissa Jagears upcoming release Bride At Last

    1. I really enjoyed Melissa's debut novel, so reading her additional books - including Bride at Last, is a must. :) Happy reading, Amy.

  7. This one looks great!
    I'm working on rhe Curiosity Keeper at the moment.;)

    1. Ooo, I've heard great things about Sarah's new novel. Hope you're liking it, Amanda. :)
