This is a very exciting giveaway for me, not just because the book sounds interesting and is close to the area I grow up in, it is because I personally know this new budding author. I don’t know her through blogging, she didn’t contact me, she is a Real Life in the flesh I know her kinda friend. In fact I use to work with her. She is an amazing woman and if you are ever in a bad mood just spend sometime with BonSue. She is full of life and her bubbly spirit is contagious. I commend her for her decision to leave the normal 9-5 job in exchange for living a life of doing what she loves.
About the Author
BonSue Brandvik lives with her loving husband near the Belleview Biltmore Resort — the inspiration and setting for her novels. She’s a hopeless romantic and an optimist. She believes we could learn a lot from our elders (even the long-dead ones) if only we would listen. She also believes historic buildings embody irreplaceable echoes of the past. She hopes readers will join the campaign to save this grand hotel from demolition so that one day, the Belleview Biltmore can reopen and, once again, welcome guests from around the world to “step back in time” and experience this phenomenal historic destination resort for themselves. BonSue is busy working on the second installment in the Spirits Of Belleview Biltmore series: “Ripples.”
BonSue has written her first novel Pearls – Spirits of the Belleview Biltmore and I’m excited to give you the chance to win a copy here at Shibley Smiles. What is interesting about this novel is the back story to it’s creation. BonSue is currently quite involved and working to save the Belleview Biltmore and is hoping her book will bring attention to her plight to help save a historical and beautiful piece of Florida history.
Software developer Honor Macklin believes she’s equal business partners with her philandering ex-husband, but when family responsibilities take her to Florida, she discovers her ex may have cheated her in more ways than one. Spirits at the Belleview Biltmore hotel try to help Honor by invading her dreams to share memories from the life of Darcy Loughman, a young Victorian woman with big problems of her own. When the two worlds collide, Honor and her new lover, Josh, along with his clairvoyant four-year-old son, try to figure out how Honor can use lessons from the past to change her destiny. The setting for this novel is the famous and currently endangered historic Belleview Biltmore Resort in Belleair, FL. The hotel was built in 1896 by one of Florida’s founding fathers, Henry B. Plant. The author is working with preservationists, hoping to find investors willing to save the wonderful, 820,000 sq. ft. hotel from demolition.
