Giveaway - The Castaways - Elin Hilderbrand


I read and reviewed The Castaways by Elin Hilderbrand last year and really enjoyed it. Here's your chance to win a copy, courtesy of The Hachette Book Group.

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.

Once again, Hilderbrand masterfully weaves an intense tale of love and loyalty set against the backdrop of endless summer island life."

Read an excerpt of The Castaways.

Open to both US and Canada, no po boxes please. To be entered - what's on your summer fun list? Ends Saturday July 24th at 6 pm EST. Good luck and check the sidebar for ongoing giveaways!

Quite a bit of my summer is being taken up with doctor visits, so reading what I can (Just finished The Steamy Side by Louisa Edwards - very good). Going to start Dear John (my daughter told me it is very different from the movie). While I can't get away too much, at least with the books, I can go away in my mind :)
