{Book Review} Love on the Line by Deeanne Gist

"It's a Battle of Wills ... and Love Is on the Line" is the tagline of Deeanne Gist's latest novel, Love on the Line. The intriguing tale follows Georgie Gail, a switchboard operator in rural Texas. Georgie has made her way in the world of men and has proved herself capable... until a man is put in place by the telephone company to watch over her. Luke Palmer is a striking man, but this telephone salesman/repairman has a secret of his own. He is an undercover Texas Ranger trying to penetrate a train robbing gang. Unfortunately for Luke, Georgie gets put in peril due to the job and Luke realizes that more than just his job is "on the line."

Deeanne has done it again. This book - Love on the Line - is an exciting and fun read. I was fascinated by mulitple aspects of this book - the Texas Rangers, train robbers and old-time telephones. It was so much fun to follow the storyline of the main couple - Luke and Georgie - wondering if they would end up together (I won't be providing spoilers though - so no worries). This has been one of my favorite books by Deeanne Gist in recent times (my other favorites include A Bride Most Begrudging and The Measure of a Lady). Deeanne Gist has earned three RITA nominations, two consecutive Christy Awards and many rave reviews. She has a very quickly growing (and very loyal) fan base - yes, that includes me!

Check out Love on the Line - my prediction is that you will thoroughly enjoy it!

Deeanne is thrilled to introduce Georgie and Luke to the word in her latest novel, Love on the Line. To celebrate Deeanne's publisher, Bethany House, is hosting the Love on the Line iPad2 giveaway an Author Chat on Facebook!

Deeanne will be wrapping up the Love on the Line celebration by chatting with friends new and old!

evening of November 8th for a rip roaring book chat, a little trivia and lots of giveaways (books, and Amazon, iTunes & Starbucks gift certificates)!

Thank you to Bethany House and LitFuse for providing my review sample!  I received no other compensation and all views expressed are my own.

Zaycon Foods: Chicken Sale Event in Kansas City 11/5 - Register Now

If you've been reading My Kansas City Mommy for awhile, you might remember the review and giveaway (now closed) that I shared for Zaycon Foods!  Zaycon is a company that wants to help its customers "Buy Big and Save Big." They sell a variety of items including meats and fresh fruits.  All of their products are farm-fresh and sold by the case (great for families who want to split the cost and get a great deal on great natural food).

 Zaycon is unique in that they don't have stores to purchase from, but rather they have Event Locations. Basically, once you have done the FREE (and easy) registration on the website, you will see the times, dates and locations in your area and what will be on sale. Then you just place your order online and pick it up at the designated time and place. Its that easy!

Zaycon Foods will be having events in Missouri and Kansas November 5-7.

Cities included are:
Liberty, MO
Leavenworth, KS
Grain Valley, MO
Lawrence, KS
Olathe, KS

More information is available on Zaycon's website now.  Orders for this sale event MUST be placed by Friday, October 28. 

Zaycon Foods will be selling their "fresh, never frozen" chicken in 40 lb. cases.  The price for a case right now is $1.49/pound.  This price fluctuates somewhat throughout the year, based on the market.  When you register with Zaycon Foods, you will receive all of the info about your local events by email.

I'm still using my first 40 pound case of chicken, but I absolutely plan to buy another the next time a sale event is in town.  I will never go back to buying chicken at the grocery store!
