Field of Blackbirds by E.S. Hoover; - A review and a giveaway!

I just finished reading Field of Blackbirds and I don't want it to be over.  Fortunately E.S. Hoover's next book in the Sebastian Bishop series, Mare Nostrom will be coming out soon! 

First, a little about Mr. Hoover.  He is a 15 year law enforcement veteran.  He has served as an International Police Office and worked with the United Nations Special Operations Division in Kosovo for two years. He knows his ops, his history, and how to keep you turning the pages anxiously.

If you are a lover of adventure, travel, history, weaponry, the military, or sexy special ops guys (for you men out there, read "sexy" as "highly trained and skilled") you are going to thoroughly enjoy Field of Blackbirds. Mr. Hoover blends all of them together in a beautifully smooth manner, keeping you turning pages and wanting more.

I found Field of Blackbirds to not only be exciting and captivating, but also intrinsically motivational and inspiring.  There is a conversation between Felix (a guard) and Sebastian Bishop, where Sebastion is at one of the darkest moments of his young life. Felix comes to visit Sebastian after he has been sent to solitary confinement for his own safety and says,
"...You need to look at your situation through different eyes and gain a perspecitve of hope.  Now I don't know how you do that. I have no recipe for success for your're situation.  But if men can spend years as prisoners of war enduring conditions far worse than your wildest nightmares, and come out to be leaders, men of integrity and inspiration, then I think you can make it through three years in Trenton."

I agree Felix, thank you - I needed to hear that!

If you or someone you know enjoys the works of Tom Clancy or Michael Crichton, this book should be on their holiday list.  You can buy Field of Blackbirds on Amazon for $13.99.

You can also test your history knowledge for a chance to win a signed copy of Field of Blackbirds. Mr. Hoover has put together a few tough history questions for you and answering them correctly earns you an entry to this giveaway.

B1G1 free Coffee at Publix (and a coupon to save even more on your cup of Joe!)

Yesterday I did a post with a bunch of coffee coupons While I was out running around yesterday I stopped in to Publix for a deli sandwich and on my way to the counter I found a bin full of Eight O'Clock coffee B1G1 free!  yay!

K, so I know I said I go everywhere with my Couponizer, but ahm, I am pretty sure robbers broke into my car and took it.  Nothing else - JUST the Couponizer.  So until the guilt crushes them and they feel compelled to return it - ooooor I find it from the move I just did - whichever -I won't be carrying around a lot of coupons. I mention this because there are two great coupons for Eight O'Clock coffee right now and had I had my couponizer I could have saved even more on my coffee. {tiny tantrum}  I wasn't expecting to buy coffee when I went into the store, just a sandwich, but I couldn't pass up a B1G1 free pound of coffee - not the way we go through coffee!

The coffee ended up costing under $2.50 a pound and with the $2.00/2 off coupon here, you can grab a couple pounds for under $3 bucks.

$0.75/1 Eight O'Clock Coffee, exp. 10-31-10 ( Sept '10)
$2.00/2 Eight O'Clock Coffee printable

For true blue Eight o'Clock fans, check out their Match Game on Facebook.  Play for a chance to win a year's worth of free coffee.
