What could be in YOUR mail (or e-mail, in this case):

A Kindle version of Midnight Train to Paris by Juliette Sobanet for one lucky US reader, thanks to Jar O' Marbles! (There are more chances to win at Juliette's website, along with an entry for a $25 Amazon gift card!)

When hard-hitting DC reporter Jillian Chambord learns that her twin sister, Isla, has been abducted from a luxury train traveling through the Alps, not even the threat of losing her coveted position at The Washington Daily can stop her from hopping on the next flight to France. Never mind the fact that Samuel Kelly—the sexy former CIA agent who Jillian has sworn off forever—has been assigned as the lead investigator in the case.

When Jillian and Samuel arrive in the Alps, they soon learn that their midnight train isn’t leading them to Isla, but has taken them back in time to 1937, to a night when another young woman was abducted from the same Orient Express train. Given a chance to save both women, Jillian and Samuel are unprepared for what they discover on the train that night, for the sparks that fly between them . . . and for what they’ll have to do to keep each other alive.

Midnight Train to Paris is a magical and suspenseful exploration of just how far we will go to save the ones we love.

How to win:

ONe of my favorite movies about mothers is Step Mom (I think that is the title) starring Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon. I just think of how she let the stepmother into her life to take care of her children as she was so sick... and it is a selfless act of a loving mother.

Happy mothers day!

I Remember Mama was my mom's favorite movie. I think one of the best movie mom's was Mrs. Jumbo, Dumbo's mom.

One of my favorite movies dealing with motherhood is Terms of Endearment. If you watch it, get the tissues ready...

I love The Family Stone. It's about the family as a whole, but the storyline about the mom gets me every time!

The Blind Side!!!!

By far, the MOST heartwarming story about a mom, a family, anything. Not only is the acting amazing, but it's such a sad, but real story. I wanted to cry so many times!

Thanks so much for hosting the giveaway for Midnight Train to Paris, and thanks to everyone who entered! So many good mom movies listed here. Obviously I'm not entering the giveaway:), but I have to say The Sound of Music and The Family Stone are my favorites. Thanks again!

Due to a location misunderstanding with our previous winner (which she was really gracious about and we appreciate her for that), random.org has chosen a new winner from all entries with contact info (one per person).

Congrats to Bridget O'Neill!

Thanks again to Jar O'Marbles for sharing the book with our winner.
