Giveaway: Saving CeeCee Honeycutt (audio version)

August 3, 2011

Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, by Beth Hoffman, was one of my favorite reads of 2009.  It’s CeeCee’s coming of age story and it’s both heartbreaking and heartwarming.  I hated for it to end because I didn’t want to leave the wonderful characters behind.  (You can read my review here.)  Thanks to the author, I have an audio version of the book to give away to one lucky reader.  It’s read by Jenna Lamia and the sample I listened to was wonderful.  This should be quite a treat to listen to!

Here’s the publisher’s description:

Twelve-year-old CeeCee Honeycutt is in trouble. For years, she has been the caretaker of her psychotic mother, Camille-the tiara-toting, lipstick-smeared laughingstock of an entire town-a woman trapped in her long-ago moment of glory as the 1951 Vidalia Onion Queen. But when Camille is hit by a truck and killed, CeeCee is left to fend for herself. To the rescue comes her previously unknown great-aunt, Tootie Caldwell.

In her vintage Packard convertible, Tootie whisks CeeCee away to Savannah’s perfumed world of prosperity and Southern eccentricity, a world that seems to be run entirely by women. From the exotic Miz Thelma Rae Goodpepper, who bathes in her backyard bathtub and uses garden slugs as her secret weapons, to Tootie’s all- knowing housekeeper, Oletta Jones, to Violene Hobbs, who entertains a local police officer in her canary-yellow peignoir, the women of Gaston Street keep CeeCee entertained and enthralled for an entire summer.

Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman’s sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, “packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart.” It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

To enter to win an audio copy of SAVING CEECEE HONEYCUTT, by Beth Hoffman, simply fill out the entry form.  Contest is open worldwide.  I will use random.org to determine the winner.  Contest ends at midnight EST Saturday, August 13, 2011.   Winners will be announced on Sunday, August 14, 2011.  Comments are welcome (and appreciated) but will not get you an entry in the contest.

    You know, I have yet to read this book. I know I could knock it out quickly, but things keep getting in my way. The audio alternative is PERFECT! If I don’t win, you can bet I’ll be buzzing around in my library’s hair convincing them to get it.

    I didn’t enter the giveaway because I just finished ‘Saving CeeCee Honeycutt’ on audiobook – and it was wonderful!! It adds a lot to actually hear a ‘performance’ of a story that has such a pronounced locale and accent in the characters.

    Thank you for offering one of the few audiobook giveaways I’ve seen. I make extensive use of them because of my long commute, and I really appreciate your thoughtfulness.

    ooo! This would be wonderful! I haven’t been listening to as many audio books this summer – the air conditioning in my car is broken so I have to drive with the windows open and I just can’t hear. But it will soon be fixed and I would love to have a good Southern story to listen to. Thanks for the chance, Kathy!
