This weeks freebie is in honor of my absolute FAVORITE time of year… Summer! So this weeks book is a beautiful hard cover copy of The Beach House by Jane Green.
Sixty-five-year-old Nan Powell has lived comfortably and happily in Nantucket since the suicide of her husband, Everett, so she is thrown for a loop when she learns that she is in danger of losing her beloved house. After weighing her options, Nan decides to turn her home into a bed-and-breakfast. The guests she gets for the summer are all at a crossroads in their lives in one way or another. Daniel has just separated from his wife and is facing something he has denied for years; Daff is recovering from the heartbreak of a divorce and getting a much-needed break from her anger-filled 13-year-old daughter; and Nan’s son Michael is on the run from a disastrous affair. Nan finds herself opening up to her guests and enjoying their company, but she is shocked when she discovers a person close to one of them has a startling connection to her.

I like medium sized houses. Those or condos. I tweeted about it.

I’ve always wanted to live in a house with a turret. Not sure why, but that style has always appealed to me. I’d set it up as a library/reading room and be in Heaven!
I love Jane Green, so thanks for the contest!
Sent out a tweet about your contest as well
Couldn’t find a link to just that one tweet, so here’s my profile:
I’d love a nice lake or beach-side bungalow. It must have a huge patio that faces the water; perfect for reflecting or reading. I’d want large floor to ceiling windows to let in plenty of natural light and help inspire my creative juices.
I’ll tweet tonight!
I just posted a link on my blog and twitter (MyBookBuds)
I’d love to live in an old farm house in the middle of no where in either podunk South Dakota or lake filled Minnesota. Just the idea of having plenty of space and plenty of privacy intrigues me.
I tweet (ed) – what a strange word! Haha!
@ReaganRay – in case you were wondering. Got caught up in the strange word and forgot this bit haha!
Hi, Sheila…I LOVE this book! As for houses, I long for one of those cottages with shuttered windows and window seats in all the rooms!
I’m blogging about this…and tweeting…my blog link is:
Great giveaway! I can’t enter since I’m in Canada, but would just have to say my favourite house would be one of those plantation houses of the 1800s.
a log cabin in the mountains.
You are all having so much fun and I am enjoying reading about your dream homes…. I have to play too!
I would love to have a beach house with a gorgeous view and since it is my “dream Home”…. it would be in a secluded area where I could read and relax by the water.
I would love to live in a Victorian house with a turret and a big front porch on the water or, at least with fantastic water views.
I’d also love a small cottage on the water with a big front porch. It seems what I’d really like is to be right by the ocean or sound and have a big front porch!
Thank you for hosting this giveaway!
I’d love a house on the beach. A house with a lot of windows. Growing up in California, but now living in Idaho, I miss the ocean.
Terrific giveaway. Thanks! je2kids(at)yahoo(dot)com
I dream of a quaint English style stone cottage. I would need all the flowers overgrown in front too!
Summer is a fun time! 🙂
I would love to live in an English cottage.

A castle of course! Isn’t that where a Princess belongs? LOL : ) I want a moat and all!

Hey Sheila…I blogged about this giveaway, but I put in the wrong link! It’s this one:
I would love to have a house on the beach, like the one Anne Morrow Lindberg stayed in when writing Gift from the Sea. 🙂
I blogged about your giveaway here:
Oh, I would want to live in a very modern abode. Thankfully, both my husband and I have the same taste, so think Van Der Rohe or Frank Lloyd Wright.
I Tweeted about this giveaway as well; thank you so much!
I would like a farm style house with a wrap around covered porch.
Actually, I’m pretty happy in my rambler. Maybe it’s more about the location…wouldn’t mind being on a lake somewhere!
Thanks for the fun summer-y giveaway.

There is a house a couple of miles from my house that I am in love with. My dream house. Wrap-around porch, sun room, large yard, separate garage in back, flowers, arches, roses…..
oh, my email – email@example.com
I have barely thought about what kind of house I would like to live in… I say one with a hammock, big porch, rocking chair, and a working dryer (my dryer leaves burn marks on some of my clothes!)

I would love a summer house with big windows by the ocean-where I could listen to it crash on the shores and smell it when I wake up.

My favorite type of home would be log cabin in the mountains with windows viewing the vast vista of mountain scenery. If I couldn’t have that then a snug cabin on water (like a lake or the ocean).

I would have to say my dream abode would be in “The Shard” in London. It’s the new ultra-modern skyscraper under construction. Sadly, I’m sure it will remain forever out of my price range!
If I could choose, I would choose a cottage set in a wooded area with a lake nearby. I want to read “The Beach House” so badly.
A big house with a turret (for my husband!) and a wrap around porch. Painted white with lots of color accents!
Oh yeah, situated in Northern Minnesota overlooking woods and lakes!
Well, I think I want a huge house that is old-fashioned looking…maybe Victorian. Mark, however, would be appalled by that. I would need a huge sunroom so I can “be outside” but not really. I also want a huge window seat. I need a beautiful garden and flowers and a large front porch as well. I DO NOT want to maintain the garden and flowers. Oh I want a small waterfall as well. I don’t think I am asking for much. 🙂
I guess if I can’t have that I would just like to have the book.
I am retweeting your tweet from this morning. I am Alipet813
I am tie between a log cabin and a Victorian style home. lol

I would love to win Beach House.
I want a cabin in the mountains!
I have always admired log cabins, so I guess that would be for me.
my ideal would be a gingerbread house with a front porch and a huge kitchen and gables and such…of course it has an elevator so i can get to the different floors. hardwood floors. fire places. some stain glass windows. lots of trees around to give the house lots of shade. there has to be one set of sliding doors somewhere. all doors are wide so there is plenty of chair clearance. the bathroom are also big with that old timey black and white octaginal tile.both the outside and inside have warm and inviting colors.
