Conclusion of The Paris Connection Blog Tour!

How a vacation can fly by when you're having fun! Hard to believe The Paris Connection blog tour has already reached its end... I hope you had a great time taking a virtual trip to Paris with Cerella, all the participating bloggers, and I. I had a wonderful time organizing the tour with Cerella - she's such a sweet person who writes such sweet books! If you haven't yet had the chance to read The Paris Connection or her previous two releases (Gentle Persuasion and Love Finds You in Hershey, Pennsylvania - both of which I recommend!), you can find purchasing info/links on Cerella's website HERE.

And just because this tour is over doesn't mean you have to say goodbye to Cerella! Visit Cerella's website to find all the ways you can connect with her online - and be sure to subscribe to her newsletter to stay in the know regarding any upcoming releases!


And we have our winners!

For the "Bon App├ętit" prize pack (which included a signed copy of Cerella's book, lots of sweet Parisian treats, and a dishtowel with a Paris scene made in France), the winner is...

Laurie I.!

For the "Bon Voyage" prize pack (which included a signed copy of Cerella's book, Paris-themed travel items, and a journal), the winner is...

Stephanie K.!

Both winners have been contacted and have responded - congratulations, Laurie and Stephanie! Enjoy your new "journey" to Paris through those fun prizes! :)

Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaways!


A blog tour is obviously nothing without bloggers willing to participate! Cerella and I are very grateful for the time, effort, and enthusiasm of the following bloggers:

March 3rd Bloggers:

March 4th Bloggers:

March 5th Bloggers:

March 6th Bloggers:

March 7th Bloggers:

March 8th Blogger:

If you missed any of these fun reviews/spotlights/interviews/features, be sure to click the links, as they'll take you directly to their tour posts!

I'd also like to thank Cerella for the opportunity to work with her and promote her latest book. It's been an absolute pleasure - not only getting to learn about the Harlequin Heartwarming line, but getting the chance to reconnect with Cerella, chat with her about writing and life, and share this latest leg of her publishing journey. As one blogger also said, I can't wait for the chance to host Cerella on the blog again! Her stories are sweet treats romance-lovers won't want to miss, and her kindness is true and exemplary.

Thank you all for joining us for a virtual week in Paris! Have a lovely weekend!
