The Case of the Missing Boyfriend AND The French House by Nick Alexander

Thanks to IPG, We have THREE pairs to give away to some lucky US readers!

Find Nick Alexander on Facebook and Twitter.

In The Case of the Missing Boyfriend, CC enjoys a glamorous career in advertising, a beautiful apartment in London and a wonderful circle of friends, but she’s still not happy. With her 40th birthday fast approaching, CC decides to be proactive about finding the man of her dreams and realizing her dream of living on a farm with a husband and child. But CC must be willing to face the demons of her past before she can find the man of her future.

The sequel, The French House, opens when CC is offered the chance to swap her unfulfilling life in London for a little house in the French countryside. She doesn’t give it a second thought until she gets there and is faced with a dilapidated farmhouse without heating, water and a massive hole in the roof; a motley assortment of surly builders; and a creepy neighbor happens to be her boyfriend’s aunt. Will CC find the courage to stick it out and make a glorious home of her French house?

Such great books, I wish those would be in my mail this week! I shouldn't be complaining though as there were also books waiting for me this week.
Something I always wonder about men is why they never get it when a woman gives them a hint? Clean enough right?

Jennifer Huelsebusch said...

I guess I wonder why they think women can't possibly know more than hey do about sports!

I would like to know why they act like such big babies when they get sick.

Why can't they admit to being lost? (not such a problem anymore with GPS).

I would so love to be the winner of your book giveaway. Why, I'll even help carry your books for you if you share some after you read them! :-)

I would truly love to know how many men would answer honestly when asked if they tune their wives how when they talk. I'm willing to bet that many of them would say yes.

Never understand how what they hear and what we say are so vastly different.

Hailey Fish said...

What great books ya'll received! The coolest thing about being a blogger, you get awesome book swag! I wish I knew how to be a blogger because that would be awesome making new friends, getting book swag as authors, bloggers, and reviewers are such great people!

What I wish I understood about men is why are they so confusing? I wish they could just tell us how they feel without getting us all upset!

I have never understood how men can waste so much time when they are piddling around yet they will say they are working. Women can work circles around them in the same amount of time .

I have always wondered why they were made to speak less than women!

I've always wondered why grown men act like a big baby when they are sick, and you have to wait on them hand and foot.

Why don't men call a woman after a date, when they say they will?

Rozi Marsh said...

These look like great reads!! My conundrum is why, oh why, can men never make plans?? It's always, you plan it, I'll be there! LOL

Jeryl M. said...

I wonder why they are not very good at multitasking.

Connie said...

Why they can never answer the first time you make a comment or ask a question. A man's first response is always What?
