Giveaway: OFF SEASON by Anne Rivers Siddons

Rules for entering this giveaway are at the bottom of this post.

Hachette Book Group is doing its best to keep us all reading this summer.

They have authorized me to give away five (5) copies of this "stunning tale of love and loss."

OFF SEASON
by
Anne Rivers Siddon

Description (from the publisher):
For as long as she can remember, they were Cam and Lilly--happily married, totally in love with each other, parents of a beautiful family, and partners in life. Then, after decades of marriage, it ended as every great love story does...in loss. After Cam's death, Lilly takes a lone road trip to her and Cam's favorite spot on the remote coast of Maine, the place where they fell in love over and over again, where their ghosts still dance. There, she looks hard to her past--to a first love that ended in tragedy; to falling in love with Cam; to a marriage filled with exuberance, sheer life, and safety-- to try to figure out her future.

It is a journey begun with tender memories and culminating in a revelation that will make Lilly re-evaluate everything she thought was true about her husband and her marriage.

I would love a chance to win a copy of this book. My favorite Siddons' book has always been Colony, but The House Next Door is very close behind. It is so different from all her others. Very scary!! I review it here.
