Nothing compliments the sunshine and beaches and BBQ's quite like a brand-new, never-been-opened summer book. I have to say that there is just something that can't be duplicated about a brand new book, and it's a high that gets me through some particularly frustrating days! I'd like to do my part to set you up with a great summer read, so I'm thrilled to be hosting two giveaways in July, both courtesy of the Hachette Book Group. The first giveaway is for a copy of "Off Season" by Anne Rivers Siddons.
From the publisher's website:
Acclaimed novelist Anne Rivers Siddons's new novel is a stunning tale of love and loss.
For as long as she can remember, they were Cam and Lilly- happily married, totally in love with each other, parents of a beautiful family, and partners in life. Then, after decades of marriage, it ended as every great love story does...in loss. After Cam's death, Lilly takes a lone road trip to her and Cam's favourite spot on the remote coast of Maine, the place where they fell in love over and over again, where their ghosts still dance. There, she looks hard to their past- to a first love that ended in tragedy; to falling in love with Cam; to a marriage filled with exuberance, sheer life, and safety- to try to figure out her future.
It is a journey begun with tender memories and culminating in a revelation that will make Lilly re-evaluate everything she thought was true about her husband and her marriage.
(And don't you just love the cover? It makes me want to curl up in THAT chair with THIS book!)
