Would you like to win a copy of “The Girl Who Stopped Swimming” by Joshilyn Jackson?  Here is some info about the book:

Lauren Gray Hawthorne needs to make things pretty, whether she’s helping her mother keep family skeletons in the closet or sewing her acclaimed art quilts. Her estranged sister, Thalia, is her opposite, an impoverished actress who prides herself on exposing the lurid truths lurking behind middle class niceties.

While Laurel‘s life seems neatly on track– a passionate marriage, a treasured daughter, a lovely suburban home– everything she holds dear is threatened the night she is visited by the ghost of her 13-year-old neighbor Molly. The ghost leads Laurel to the real Molly, floating lifelessly in the Hawthorne’s backyard pool. Molly’s death is an unseemly mystery that no one in her whitewashed neighborhood is up to solving. Laurel enlists Thalia’s help, even though she knows it comes with a high price tag.

Together, they set out on a life-altering journey that triggers startling revelations about their family’s haunted past, the true state of Laurel’s marriage, and the girl who stopped swimming.

I will be giving away 5 copies of this book. Unfortunately winners are limited to the US and Canada…sorry about that. I will be drawing the winners on May 3 so make sure to leave a comment. Please remember to have a valid email address so I know where to contact you and thanks!

    This sounds fantastic! Although, lol, my boyfriend & his mother believe that me & him are being visited by a ghost at night. There’s a lot of unexplained choking & poking going on. Anyways, this book may make me more creeped out.. but that isn’t a bad thing.

  49. Thank you!
