Dorothy Garlock's newest book, The Nearness of You releases on July 11/17 - and I have a copy to giveaway to a lucky reader! (Don't you love that cover!)
What's it about? From Grand Central Publishing:
"Hooper's Crossing, New York, 1952. The post-war boom seems a million miles away . . . especially for a sheltered librarian who longs for the adventure and excitement of the big city.
New York City. The hustle and bustle. The people and the excitement. It's all Lily Denton dreams about. But ever since her mother died, her overprotective father won't ease up on her. So she spends her days working at the library and her nights hoping life doesn't pass her by . . . until the Fall Festival. As tourists fill the streets, the crisp autumn air sneaks in-as does the thrill of a far more dangerous kind.
Some men have a gift for avoiding trouble. Professional photographer Boone Tatum isn't one of them. In fact, that penchant for trouble is exactly what landed Boone in this small town in the middle of nowhere in the first place. Yet the moment he meets beautiful Lily Denton and snaps her photograph, everything changes. Suddenly leaving is the furthest thing from Boone's mind-or his heart.
But danger has slipped silently into this sleepy town, marking Lily as its own. And Lily and Boone's dream of a life together is thrown into peril-unless Lily finds the courage to stand up for herself and a man she only just met . . . and can't live without." Read an excerpt of The Nearness of You.
I love that setting and time so this sounds really good to me.
I too like the background setting of this story.
I just saw this book online, like, yesterday!
I was a teenager in the 50s and love stories set then.
The cover is beautiful, thanks for the chance to win!
This is a wonderful giveaway by a great author. Love the era.

Just finished a book set in 1946.. love that whole time period.
I've never read anything by Garlock and this sounds like a good one to start.
I've never read a book by Dorothy Garlock and this being historical fiction sounds like one I would love.
This a book I would enjoy reading.
