Giveaway - Margarita Wednesdays - Deborah Rodriguez

You might recognize Deborah Rodriquez's name from her previous books - Kabul Beauty School and The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul.

Her latest book Margarita Wednesdays: Making a New Life by the Mexican Sea is newly released. And I have two copies to giveaway!

From the publisher, Simon and Schuster:

"In answer to the question of what happened following her New York Times bestseller Kabul Beauty School, Deborah Rodriquez is back with a new memoir.

Irreverent, insightful, and blatantly honest, Deborah takes us along on her inspiring journey of self-discovery and renewal after she is forced to flee Afghanistan in 2007. She first lands in California, where she feels like a misfit teetering on the brink of sanity. Where was that fearless redhead who stared danger in the face back in Kabul?

After being advised to commune with glowworms and sit in contemplation for one year, Rodriguez finally packs her life and her cat into her Mini Cooper and moves to a seaside town in Mexico. Despite having no plan, no friends, and no Spanish, a determined Rodriguez soon finds herself swept up in a world where the music never stops and a new life can begin. Her adventures and misadventures among the expats and locals help lead the way to new love, new family, and a new sense of herself.

In the magic of Mexico, she finds the hairdresser within, and builds the life she never knew was possible—a life on her own terms."

"In addition to writing, Deborah is a hairdresser and motivational speaker. She also owned the Kabul Coffee House which inspired her to write her first novel, The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul, which went on to become an international bestseller. She is the founder of Oasis Rescue, a nonprofit organization that provides help to women in troubled, post conflict, and economically depressed areas, providing supplies and skills to women who aspire to become more financially independent through hairdressing. She currently lives in Mazatlan, Mexico, where she owns the Tippy Toes Salon. "
