Meow-ry New Year!

Well, it's time to ring out the old - 2017 - and ring in the new - 2018!

What better way to do that than with a giveaway??????

And what better book for a giveaway than one with a holiday theme - namely, Liz Mugavero's PURRING AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the Pawsitively Organic series it revolves around Stan Connor, former marketing executive who's made the transition to small town living along with a menagerie of pets.


In the New England town of Frog’s Ledge, the Holiday Light Festival is a Christmas tradition. Killing Santa is not. To bring joy back to the season, organic pet patisserie owner Kristan “Stan” Connor will have to find another Santa before it’s too late . . .

To the townspeople’s delight, the annual lighting of the tree is a spectacular success. Unfortunately, Santa pulled up in his sleigh, DOA. At first Stan is sure it’s Seamus, her boyfriend’s uncle, inside the red suit. But the victim turns out to be an employee from the town’s Christmas tree farm. Rumor has it the deceased was a mean drunk with a soft spot for feral cats. Stan has no idea why he was dressed as St. Nick—or why he’s dead.

Meanwhile, Seamus, a jolly Irishman who comes to America every December to visit his pub-owner nephew, is nowhere to be found. Could he just be off on a Boston bar crawl? Or is something more sinister under the tree? Seamus was supposed to be dressing up and posing for pet pictures with Santa at the shop, but the dogs and cats might have to find another lap to curl up in if Stan doesn’t solve twomysteries soon. Or murder might be the only thing under the mistletoe this holiday . . .

  2. THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL is a family favourite.

    The book looks wonderful thank you.


  3. I still love White Christmas..the songs and the costumes...thank you for the chance.

  4. The original Miracle on 34th Street is my favorite Christmas movie.

  5. I have several Christmas movies that are absolutely must watch movies for me every year, but the one I consider my favorite is "It's a Wonderful Life". (That's followed closely by "White Christmas" and "A Christmas Story" - the latter of which is a great example of my childhood, down to my brother having the same toy riffle and us going to the same store to see Santa every year.)

  6. How the Grinch Stole Christmas & Home Alone are my favorites.

  7. hands down, my all time fave christmas movie is National Lampoons christmas vacation.


  8. Romeo Luigi, Ralphie Lee, and our family wish you, Rocco, and your family a wonderful New Year. Our favorite movie to watch is Miracle on 34th Street like you. Nothing better than the original. We also like White Christmas in the original form. Both give you a warm and snuggly feeling when you watch. robeader53(at)yahoo(dot)com

  9. We have 3 must see Christmas movies that we have to watch every year. Miracle on 34th Street, original same as you, It's a Wonderful Life, and White Christmas, original. Thanks for the giveaway. Have a Happy New Year!!!!

  10. White Christmas is my favorite followed by the original Miracle on 34th Street. The Hallmark Channels get a good workout from me as well! Happy New Year from the deep freeze state of MN.

  11. I have to say that we have the same taste. I LOVE the original Miracle on 34th Street too! And I have to watch the Grinch every year. Karen B is right-MN is too, too cold. I am tired of sub zero weather! Happy New Year and thanks for the chance to win a fun sounding book
