Win a Copy of “Girls in Trucks” by Katie Crouch

girls-in-trucks

 

Would you like to win a copy of “Girls in Trucks” by Katie Crouch?  Here is some info about the book:

Sarah Walters, the narrator of GIRLS IN TRUCKS, is a reluctant Camellia Society debutante. She has always felt ill-fitted to the rococo ways of Southern womanhood and family, and is anxious to shake the bonds of her youth. Still, she follows the traditional path laid out for her. This is Charleston, and in this beautiful, dark, segregated town, established rules and manners mean everything.

But as Sarah grows older, she finds that her Camellia lessons fail her, particularly as she goes to college, moves North, and navigates love and life in New York. There, Sarah and her group of displaced deb sisters try to define themselves within the realities of modern life. Heartbreak, addiction, disappointing jobs and death fail to live up to the hazy, happy future promised to them by their Camellia mothers and sisters.

When some unexpected bumps in the road–an unplanned birth, a family death–lead Sarah back home, she’s forced to take another long look at the fading empire of her youth. It takes a strange turn of events to finally ground Sarah enough to make some serious choices. And only then does she realize that as much as she tried to deny it, where she comes from will always affect where she ends up. The motto of her girlhood cotillion society, “Once a Camellia, always a Camellia,” may turn out to have more wisdom and pull to it than she ever could have guessed.

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 April 30 so make sure to leave a comment. Please remember to have a valid email address so I know where to contact you and thanks!

On a hot summer afternoon in 1972, three teenagers drove into an unfamiliar neighborhood and six lives were altered forever.

Thirty five years later, one survivor of that day reaches out to another, opening a door that could lead to salvation. But another survivor is now out of prison, looking for reparation in any form he can find it.

A novel of fathers and sons, wives and husbands, loss, victory and violent redemption,

THE TURNAROUND is another compelling, highly charged novel from George Pelecanos, “the best crime novelist in America.” -Oregonian

COMING HOME IS MURDER…

Revenge. Edie Swann has hungered for it since she fled her hometown as a little girl. Now she’s returned, ready for payback.

What happens next turns her own blood cold: one by one, the men she’s targeted start dying.

As the body count rises and all evidence points to Edie, Holt is torn between the town he’s sworn to protect and the woman he’s come to desire. But nothing is what it seems. Long buried secrets begin to surface, and a killer won’t be satisfied until the sins of the past are paid in full–this time with Edie’s blood.

Win a Copy of “The Girl Who Stopped Swimming” by Joshilyn Jackson

the-girl-who-stopped-swimming

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.

Win A Copy Of Age Of The Unthinkable By Joshua Cooper Ramo on Audio

age-of-the-unthinkable 

Would you like to win a copy of Age of the Unthinkable by Joshua Cooper Ramo on audio?  Here is some info about the book:

For decades, American foreign policy has been based on the seductive belief that there exists a logical relationship between power of states and the physics of change. And yet today policies designed to make us safer instead make the world more perilous. History’s grandest war against terrorism creates more terrorists. Global capitalism, intended to boost the quality of life of people around the world, increases the gap between rich and poor. Decisions taken to stem a financial crisis guarantee its arrival. Environmental techniques engineered to protect species lead to their extinction. Middle East peace plans produce less peace. Our world is not becoming more stable or flatter or easier to comprehend. And what we face isn’t one single shift, like the end of World War Two or the collapse of the Soviet Union, so much as a revolutionary avalanche of ceaseless change.

Now, drawing upon history, economics, complexity theory, human immunology, psychology and his own extraordinary experiences, Joshua Ramo puts forth a radical new model for looking at the world, one that embraces its inherent unpredictability–and offers our best hope for dealing with problems and disasters as they emerge.

I  will be giving away 3 copies of this audiobook. Unfortunately winners are limited to the US and Canada…sorry about that. I will be drawing the winners on April 12 so make sure to leave a comment. Please remember to have a valid email address so I know where to contact you and thanks!
