The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry GIVEAWAY

Thanks to Harper Collins Publishers and Brunonia Barry I have a SIGNED, yes I said signed hard cover edition of this wonderful book to giveaway to one lucky winner!

Please see my glowing review of this book HERE.

Here’s the published description from the front flap:

Every gift has a price . . .

Every piece of lace has a secret . . .

My name is Towner Whitney. No, that’s not exactly true. My real first name is Sophya. Never believe me. I lie all the time. . . .

Towner Whitney, the self-confessed unreliable narrator of The Lace Reader, hails from a family of Salem women who can read the future in the patterns in lace, and who have guarded a history of secrets going back generations, but the disappearance of two women brings Towner home to Salem and the truth about the death of her twin sister to light.

The Lace Reader is a mesmerizing tale that spirals into a world of secrets, confused identities, lies, and half-truths in which the reader quickly finds it’s nearly impossible to separate fact from fiction, but as Towner Whitney points out early on in the novel, “There are no accidents.”

Chilling Mystery
Caroline is just like any other older sister. She doesn’t think that she should always have to look after her little sister Belle. Couldn’t she just disappear?

The year is 1956 and Caroline is given $3.00 to take Belle to the Calgary Summer Carnival. She must go on rides the Belle wants to go on and pick the pink cotton candy from her hair. Everything is about Belle.
At the end of the street, the girls saw ‘Grandpa’s Tymeless Fotos.’ This is where life changed Caroline’s life forever. As in Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, Caroline finds out what pictures can really do.
I enjoyed this short story immensely. Cheryl Kaye Tardif has the knack of making a suspenseful story sound believable.
Highly recommended!
5/5

I am hosting my first Giveaway ever, thanks to Hachette Book Group!

5 lucky readers will win a copy of Lost and Found by Carolyn Parkhurst and 5 lucky winners will win a copy of Gods Behaving Badly By Marie Phillips!

About the Book:
A suburban mom, her troubled daughter, divorced brothers, former child stars, born-again Christians, and some young millionaires have all been selected to compete on LOST AND FOUND, a daring new reality show. In pairs of two, they will race across the world to compete for a million-dollar prize. The only question is not only who will capture the big jackpot, but at what price.

Carolyn Parkhurst is also the author of the bestseller The Dogs of Babel.

About the Book:

Being a Greek god is not all it once was. Yes, the twelve gods of Olympus are alive and well in the twenty-first century, but they are crammed together in a London townhouse-and none too happy about it. And they’ve had to get day jobs: Artemis as a dog-walker, Apollo as a TV psychic, Aphrodite as a phone sex operator, Dionysus as a DJ. Even more disturbingly, their powers are waning, and even turning mortals into trees-a favorite pastime of Apollo’s-is sapping their vital reserves of strength.

Soon, what begins as a minor squabble between Aphrodite and Apollo escalates into an epic battle of wills. Two perplexed humans, Alice and Neil, who are caught in the crossfire, must fear not only for their own lives, but for the survival of humankind. Nothing less than a true act of heroism is needed-but can these two decidedly ordinary people replicate the feats of the mythical heroes and save the world?
