Giveaway - The Castaways - Elin Hildebrand - audio book


Summer isn't over yet and thanks to the generosity of The Hachette Book Group, here's your chance to win one of three audio book copies of one of the summer's hottest reads - Elin Hildebrand's The Castaways. You can read my review here.

From the publisher:

"Greg and Tess MacAvoy are one of four prominent Nantucket couples who count each other as best friends. As pillars of their close-knit community, the MacAvoys, Kapenashes, Drakes, and Wheelers are important to their friends and neighbors, and especially to each other. But just before the beginning of another idyllic summer, Greg and Tess are killed when their boat capsizes during an anniversary sail. As the warm weather approaches and the island mourns their loss, nothing can prepare the MacAvoy's closest friends for what will be revealed."

Listen to an excerpt. or Read an excerpt. And then leave a comment to be entered. Three copies to be won. Open to US and Canada, no po boxes please. Ends Saturday Sept 5th , 6 pm EST. Good luck and check the sidebar for ongoing giveaways.

I just finished this book last week and have now started on Nantucket Nights by Elin Hildebrand. I have read almost all of her books and have truly enjoyed them and highly recommend them. The Castaways was a little difficult at first to get into but then I couldn't put it down..
