Sizzling Books of Summer Giveaway Hop

Gasp! We are late posting this!! We are very happy to be participating in the Sizzling Books of Summer Giveaway Hop hosted by My Secret Romance Book Reviews.  We decided to share the love for a perfect summery beach read: RAINSHADOW ROAD by our Author of the Month Lisa Kleypas.

The Book...
Lucy Marinn is a glass artist living in mystical, beautiful, Friday Harbor, Washington. She is stunned and blindsided by the most bitter kind of betrayal: her fiance Kevin has left her. His new lover is Lucy's own sister. Lucy's bitterness over being dumped is multiplied by the fact that she has constantly made the wrong choices in her romantic life. Facing the severe disapproval of Lucy's parents, Kevin asks his friend Sam Nolan, a local vineyard owner on San Juan Island, to "romance" Lucy and hopefully loosen her up and get her over her anger. Complications ensue when Sam and Lucy begin to fall in love, Kevin has second thoughts, and Lucy discovers that the new relationship in her life began under false pretenses. Questions about love, loyalty, old patterns, mistakes, and new beginnings are explored as Lucy learns that some things in life--even after being broken--can be made into something new and beautiful.

Rainshadow Road
Friday Harbor # 2
by Lisa Kleypas

The Drink...
You definitely have to enjoy this book with your favorite glass of wine.  I know it's not a special fruity drink recommendation but it's just what would go with the theme of this book.

The Series...
There's something really special about the Friday Harbor series, you just have to read them.  And did you hear that the first book, Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor is being made into a Hallmark movie?  It is supposed to be on TV by December!
Book 3: Dream Lake

The Giveaway...
We have three print copies of RAINSHADOW ROAD up for grabs for this giveaway.  This one is US/Canada.
a Rafflecopter giveaway

Keep Hopping!
