Life in the fast lane (plus a big giveaway!)

Life has continued to be a whirlwind these past few weeks as we finish our time here in the States. We were booked to return tonight, but found out this morning that our flight was canceled. The airlines ended up booking us on a flight tomorrow which actually gives us more time to finish our to-do list and maybe even get a good night sleep. (Yes, we were up till three this morning packing!)

Of course, it also means that I will have to rewash all the sheets and towels in the morning, but I guess by now, we've learned to simply go with the flow.

While a lot has been going on in our ministry lives, this has also been the month for the release of Blood Covenant. I'm so exited about this book and the fact that the reviews coming in are very positive. Thanks also to all of you who have written me to share your thoughts and posted your reviews on line for the series.

Here is what some people are saying...

"Blood Covenant is a rare romantic suspense that has a great balance of suspense to romance." The Christian Manifesto

This stellar novel is an absolute must-read!Romantic Times 4 ½ star Tip Pick!

Harris's writing is engaging, and she is worth watching. Publisher’s Weekly

"Lisa Harris paints with words of vivid detail, as you, the reader, step into the diverse scenes of the book. It’s better than 3D..."

In celebration, I’m giving away four copies this week! And one of the lucky winners, will also get some tea and chocolate straight from the heart of Africa.
