Giveaway - This One is Mine - Maria Semple


Doesn't that cover just make you want to dig into This One is Mine by Maria Semple? This would be a light hearted selection for a book club - you can find the reading guide here.

From the publisher:

"Violet Parry is living the quintessential life of luxury in the Hollywood Hills with David, her rock-and-roll manager husband, and her darling toddler, Dot. She has the perfect life--except that she's deeply unhappy. David expects the world of Violet but gives little of himself in return. When she meets Teddy, a roguish small-time bass player, Violet comes alive, and soon she's risking everything for the chance to find herself again. Also in the picture are David's hilariously high-strung sister, Sally, on the prowl for a successful husband, and Jeremy, the ESPN sportscaster savant who falls into her trap."

Get a head start - read an excerpt of This One is Mine. Or check out the Facebook page.

Listen to a blog talk radio interview with Maria.

Thanks to the generosity of The Hachette Book Group, I have 3 copies to giveaway. Open to the US and Canada, no po boxes please. Simply comment to be entered. Ends Saturday March 20th at 6 pm EST.
