Giveaway - Backseat Saints - Joshilyn Jackson

Thanks to the generous folks at The Hachette Book Group I have three audio book copies of Joshilyn Jackson's new book Backseat Saints to giveaway.

What's it about?

"Rose Mae Lolley is a fierce and dirty girl, long-suppressed under flowery skirts and bow-trimmed ballet flats. As "Mrs. Ro Grandee" she's trapped in a marriage that's thick with love and sick with abuse. Her true self has been bound in the chains of marital bliss in rural Texas, letting "Ro" make eggs, iron shirts, and take her punches. She seems doomed to spend the rest of her life battered outside by her husband and inside by her former self, until fate throws her in the path of an airport gypsy---one who shares her past and knows her future. The tarot cards foretell that Rose's beautiful, abusive husband is going to kill her. Unless she kills him first.

Hot-blooded Rose Mae escapes from under Ro's perky compliance and emerges with a gun and a plan to beat the hand she's been dealt. Following messages that her long-missing mother has left hidden for her in graffiti and behind paintings, Rose and her dog Gretel set out from Amarillo, TX back to her hometown of Fruiton, AL, and then on to California, unearthing a host of family secrets as she goes. Running for her life, she realizes that she must face her past in order to overcome her fate---death by marriage---and become a girl who is strong enough to save herself from the one who loves her best."

Listen to an excerpt of Backseat Saints. Or read an excerpt. You can find Joshilyn on Facebook and Twitter as well.

Simply comment to be entered. Open to US and Canada, no po boxes please. Ends Saturday Sept 4th at 6 pm EST. Good luck and check the sidebar for ongoing giveaways.

Just finished 'gods in Alabama' and loved it, so I'm pumped at the thought of another book with some of the same characters!
I was a little concerned about the violence angle, but was told it is well-handled and not horribly graphic.

Thanks for the contest!
