Chicken Soup for the Soul: True Love Giveaway

 

As a child of divorce (which is not a bad thing for me), I was excited to read this book about love stories.  I know that when I do get married, it will be forever!  I love hearing / reading about people who are truly in love.

Everyone loves a good love story. And we all love stories about how the love started and blossomed. This fun new book about dating, romance, love, and marriage, will make readers laugh and cry, and is guaranteed to inspire a renewed search for that special someone or open the heart a little more to the love already found. Stories of how couples met, when “they knew,” good and bad dates, proposals, maintaining the relationship, second chances, and all the other ups and downs of love, romance, and marriage will entertain, encourage, and warm the hearts of all readers. A great Valentine’s, wedding, or romantic gift!

The book is divided into 10 sections, including Adventures in Dating, Keeping the Love Alive, Love Everlasting and more.  Loathing at First Sight is a hilarious story that shows that first impressions aren't always lasting.  We can probably all relate to Adventures in Online Dating in one way or another.  Married to a Metrosexual was a fantastic tale about a woman married to a very metro husband.  I was surprisingly touched by Best Friends, a sweet story about a married couple.

I am pleased to offer a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: True Love - 101 Heartwarming and Humorous Stories about Dating, Romance, Love, and Marriage to 3 winners.
