Crazy-for-books Book Hop

Good morning, fellow book addicts.  It's that time of the week where I check out the hops next week I'll be
at the Literary Book Hop here    The question this week is "If you could physically put yourself in a book
or series what would it be?" I was going to say James Patterson but someone already put that so to be
unique I am going to say "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet"  I guess I love the idea of living in California in the 80's.   Don't forget to check out the giveaway below this post.

Grace the equivalent of getting a Get Out of Jail free card.  Anyone who has played  Monolopy (Yes folks it's
a board game bear with me I am going somewhere with this) knows that besides accumulating  a lot of property,
,collecting $200 when you pass go, the best thing you can get is that "Get Out Of Jail Free Card" simply because
if you landed on the square that says Go To Jail and you had that card you didn't have to go.   Well God's Grace isn't quite like that . If you have already received God's Grace…
