Bloggy Giveaway Carnival - Off Season by Anne Rivers Siddons

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival
Button
This Giveaway is part of the huge Bloggy Giveaways Carnival that's happening this week. If you see that posting's a bit down till the weekend, that's the reason for it. Find more details over at Bloggy Giveaways.

Thanks to Hachette Book Group USA, I have 2 much-anticipated books to give away.

The first one is  Off Season by Anne Rivers Siddons (releasing August 13th)
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 favorite 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 her 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.
The giveaway is open only to US & Canada and will end midnight CST of August 1st.
