Love at Millicent's Tea Shop: Two-Novel Set Giveaway!

Pull up a comfy chair, settle in with your favorite cup of tea, and enjoy this romantic-comedy two-novel set.

Before featuring the giveaway of my newly released two-novel-set, I want to announce that the winner of the free copy of Field of Redemption, by Lori Bates Wright, is:


and the winner of the free copy of Trapped, by Lillian Duncan, is:


Congratulations! We'll get your books right out to you. I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to learn about new releases! U.S. subscribers are entered in the drawings a second time when they comment.

And now I want to announce that my two Millicent Tea Shop novels have been released in an e-book set called Love at Millicet's Tea Shop. You might be familiar with the titles of the two novels, The Perfect Blend and Tea for Two. Here's the cover copy for the set:

British expat, Millicent Ashford Jewell, welcomes friends and strangers to Milly’s Tea Shop in charming Middleburg, Virginia, where more than one romance has found its spark. Two such stories are featured in Love at Millicent's Tea Shop. If you enjoy the novels of Debbie Macomber, you’ll love these romances set in a small town with a big heart.


Steph Vandergrift is in need of a job. She left everything behind to elope with Middleburg attorney Rick Manfred, never imagining he would stand her up at the altar. Now, hoping just to get by until she can decide what to do next, Steph thinks she’s found the perfect position at the local tea shop.

Kendall James, one of the kindest and most eligible bachelors in the area, meets Steph and proceeds to pursue her. But by the time Steph feels able to consider dating again, her runaway fiancé returns and tries to win her back. Steph is wary, but she and Rick always seemed to blend so well. Are they truly meant to be together, or does God have something else in mind?


Counselor Tina Milano has been visiting Milly's Tea Shop regularly for the past several months. She has many friends but no steady man in her life. Zack Cooper is a local farmer who provides Milly with fresh fruit and vegetables. As a single parent, Zack is doing his best to raise his teenage son and daughter on his own.

When the kids get in minor scrapes with the law, Milly gently encourages Zack and Tina to work together to draw the teens back before their rebellious natures land them in even hotter water. At first Tina sees the relationship in only a professional capacity, but soon her friends notice the luscious scent of romance in the air and decide to help things along.

Tea for Two is a faith-filled novel that explores the delight of second chances, warm friendship, and unexpected romantic encounters.

The two-novel set is available for online purchase at the following button:

Let me ask you a question. I've written for a few series in the past, and I like that e-book formats make it easier to purchase entire sets at once like this. Each of these novels is also still available in individual format as well. Considering that quite a bit of time usually goes by between individual book releases, are you more likely to purchase a full series like this or individual books, one at a time? 

I'm going to give away an e-copy of the set to a subscriber or someone who answers my question, above. The drawing is done by email, so leave your answer and your email (like so: trish[at]trishperry[dot]com) in the comments section below. "Please enter me" won't get you entered. Remember that U.S. subscribers are entered an additional time in each drawing.

Only United States residents are eligible for the drawing, but anyone can subscribe to the blog posts via the GDPA-compliant Feedblitz box above my list of books, at right.

Also readers, I'd love it if you'd connect with me on Facebook. Just click on my name at the right of today's post title.

Annoying legal disclaimer: drawings void where prohibited; open only to U.S. residents; the odds of winning depend upon the number of participants. See full disclaimer, GDPA notice, and my Disclosure of Material Connection HERE

I perfer to purchase full set at one time especially in print. Though I still usually buy each ebook as they come out. It all depends. Thank you for this fabulous chance!

I tend to buy the whole sets in digital format. I still like paper books, but I lean toward digital. Thanks for a chance to win the set.

Vie said...

I love these two books! And I have both of them in paperback, so don't enter me in the drawing--I just wanted to chime in on how delightful these two books are.

Paula Shreckhise said...

I like to read all the books in a set one after the other.

Mimi B said...

I'm impatient so I like to read books as they come out. lol

One at a time. cheetahthecat1986@gmail.com

These sound like wonderful books. When buying for my tablet, I like buying the series at once, that way I can go straight from one book to the next.

Caryl Kane said...

I love to binge read a series. I would purchase the completed series.


Trish Perry said...

Like most of you, if the entire series is out and I haven't yet purchased any books in a series, I like to get them all at once. But if I've been waiting for a particular series to begin, I'm likely to buy them one at a time and wait for the next installments like a good girl. I think the binge nature of our television viewing these days has altered the way we want our fiction as well!

I binge read Karen Kingsbury’s Baxter series. Our church library had them all and my daughter got me started.

arletta said...

I think I prefer them one at a time. I'm not sure why I'm often not drawn towards the box sets. Maybe because I can't see the covers of them well? I have to think on this.

Critchmom said...

I buy a single book if it looks interesting and I want to read it, along with a good price. If it’s a series and I want to purchase the entire set, I’d do that. Sometimes I can get a series as cheap as an individual book, so if I’ve enjoyed the books, I’ll buy the series in ebook format and sell my print copies. It all depends if I rally like them and want to keep a series.

Barbara said...

I don't get out and about very much these days so e-books are good for me. Since the story comes in more than one book I like to have them to read right away.
