A Fashion Flash Giveaway containing all my loves

When I think of the things I love the first two that come to my mind (not people, things!) are books and cosmetics. I am a big reader and usually have two books going at one time. My reading material is the first item I put in my carry-on or purse when I’m going somewhere and the second item/s are cosmetics. When Fashion Flash decided it was time for one of their summer giveaways I was so excited to participate in this with my two loves.

Fashion Flash Giveaway prizes

What could be easier than going away for a long weekend or trip and throwing these three items into your bag? You’d be set for a relaxing, enjoyable getaway. Or use them at home for hours of fun! Today’s giveaway will bring you three terrific items: the novel LOST INNOCENCE by Jannine Gallant, a Crown Cosmetics PRO Travel Face Palette, and a 7 piece Mini Sable Brush Set from Crown.

LOST INNOCENCE by Jannine Gallant isn’t even published yet but will be on the day that this giveaway is over. It’s the second book in a new series from Jannine Gallant called A Siren Cove Novel. I didn’t read the first but that didn’t stop me from understanding and getting into LOST INNOCENCE quickly.

LOST INNOCENCE by Jannine Gallant

The small town of Siren Cove, Oregon, has everything you could want—and a few things you don’t . . .

Artist Nina Hutton finds a lottery ticket on the beach, stuffs the crumpled paper in her pocket—then forgets all about it. Distracted and shaken by a series of break-ins at her home, Nina turns to her handsome new neighbor for help and protection again and again.

Since the death of his wife in a drive-by shooting, Teague O’Dell has moved from the city to the small town of Siren Cove, determined that his daughter will grow up in a safe environment. But when the intriguing woman next door is plagued by a mysterious vandal, he wonders if his new home harbors unexpected dangers.
The winning lottery numbers have been revealed, and the owner will do whatever it takes to claim the prize. And the closer Nina and Teague get to each other, the closer they may get to exposing a horror that could cost them everything . . .

If you like suspense and some romance this is going to be an enjoyable summer read for you. I was speeding through the book so fast that it surprised me. It’s not violent but there are times it’ll keep you reading just to find out what’s next!
