Pickup Games Book Giveaway...

When Mick Webber gets a new job hosting a college basketball show, he is less than thrilled to learn he will be co-hosting with Cara Jones, a pretty brunette trying to get over her failed engagement. From the start it is clear the two will not be playing nice, and work soon turns into a battlefield. But as the season progresses and the two are forced to work together more closely, they begin to see that first impressions can often be deceiving. In this riveting story about the game of love, you'll find yourself holding your breath to see what the scoreboard says when the clock runs out.

About the Author: Marcia Argueta Mickelson was born in Guatemala but grew up mostly in New Jersey. She is a graduate of Brigham Young University and lives in Texas with her husband and three sons Omar, Diego, and Ruben. When she s not writing, Marcia enjoys playing at the beach, reading, blogging, watching movies, and making train layouts for her boys. She is the author of Star Shining Brightly and Reasonable Doubt.

Thanks to Marica I get to give away two copies of this book.

This is her third book! They are good books. I'm looking forward to this book since it's a sort of sequel to her second book. Although I am sure she probably wrote it in a way that you won't need to read the 2nd book in order to understand the 3rd book. However, I say buy the 2nd book anyway, it was really good!

I really want to win a copy of this book, not just because Marcia is a good friend, and she is that, but especially because it seems this book was written just for me!

Not only is my name Liz Derry, exactly the same number of syllables as Cara Jones' name (no way that can be a coincidence), but I also know nothing about basketball, perfect to read a book written to teach me a little about basketball. Then add to that, that my husband is exactly what my first impression was of him. This book sounds just like my life.

Well, maybe not just, but it sure sounds like it would be a ton of fun to escape in to for a little while. I hope I win! Thanks for doing this!
