Coming Unglued by Rebeca Seitz & Giveaway Galore

Coming Unglued is the second novel in Rebeca Seitz's series of scrap booking sisters, Tandy, Kendra, Meg and Joy. Adopted by loving parents, the diverse women are now searching for their place in the world. This is Kendra' story.

Kendra Sinclair is a successful artist whose ebullient personality hides a woman tormented by her childhood, the memories of her birth mother and the men she brought home.

Wooed by Darrin, a musician who hopes to create a new life with her, Kendra finds herself pursuing an emotional entanglement with another man - a man she has no right to be with. Driven by her desperate need for love and acceptance but feeling unworthy of such love from a "good" man, Kendra follows a path certain to crush her spirit, lose the respect of her sisters and destroy a man already scarred by his wife's betrayal.

Don't let the cute cover deceive you! Hidden in the pages and intertwined with humour, fun characters and sisterly love, is the very timely issue of a woman looking for love in all the wrong places for all the wrong reasons.
Rebeca Seitz tackles the dangers of an emotional affair and the very ugly fallout with authenticity and painful clarity. Rebeca brings a uniqueness to her story with a woman as the betrayer rather than the betrayed and her characters' responses, ranging from anger and bitterness to forgiveness, have a genuineness that is refreshing. Kendra's vacillation between the two men despite being aware of her wrong behaviour is excruciatingly real as are the terrible emotional scars she bears from her childhood. I did get impatient halfway through the book waiting for the other shoe to drop for Kendra and for Tandy to stop being Bridezilla, but Rebeca's writing talent and stellar ending were worth the wait. Readers of Tandy's story in Sisters, Ink will be delighted with her ongoing tale and the hints at the stories of Joy and Meg still to come.

Oh pick me, pick me LOL. I've just finished 'Sisters, Ink' and I can't wait to read the next installment!!

My favourite craft activity is more fabric oriented. I love quilting ~ both the construction and the actual quilting the layers together. But for something that satisfies my desire for quick results, small garden embroideries are frequent projects.

For the last several years I haven't really done much crafting. I enjoy scrapbooking and need to get back to it. I used to cross-stitch constantly. Also love quilts and have made a couple but I'm very, very slow at it.

I've tried several things through the years, but am just not a "crafty" person. But if granted an ability choice, it would be quilting. I have always treasured my grandmother's quilts, and also the friendship community that quilting circles offer.

Thanks for this great giveaway! I'd love to win.

I love a lot of different crafts but most of all I love scrapbooking. My husband thinks we will end up having a library of scrapbooks of our (seven and a half week 'old', cute)grandson alone.

I really liked the first book and would love to win the second one. I love scrap booking, crocheting, knitting, sewing, card making, toy making and.and.and. LOL

I'm not so crafty anymore as my hands are a bit arthritic, but I used to sew, knit, and make tissue covers with that plastic stuff and yarn. Now, I scrapbook, but not the "modern" way; I take pictures and mementos of trips and put them into an album.
