Giveaway: The First Husband

April 20, 2012

To celebrate the paperback release of The First Husband, by Laura Dave, Penguin is offering a copy to three lucky readers!

About the book:

Annie Adams is days away from her thirty-second birthday and thinks she has finally found some happiness. She visits the world’s most interesting places for her syndicated travel column and she’s happily cohabiting with her movie director boyfriend Nick in Los Angeles. But when Nick comes home from a meeting with his therapist (aka “futures counselor”) and announces that he’s taking a break from their relationship so he can pursue a woman from his past, the place Annie had come to call home is shattered. Reeling, Annie stumbles into her neighborhood bar and finds Griffin-a grounded, charming chef who seems to be everything Annie didn’t know she was looking for. Within three months, Griffin is Annie’s husband and Annie finds herself trying to restart her life in rural Massachusetts.

About the author:

Laura Dave is the author of The Divorce Party and London Is the Best City in America. She has contributed to The New York Times, The Huffington Post, Redbook, Glamour, Ladies’ Home Journal and Self.  A New York native, she now lives with her husband in Los Angeles.

I haven’t had a chance to read the book yet, but people I trust have and here’s what they had to say:

Leah of Amused by Books said “this book had all of the things I love in a novel and just enough of a twist for me to think it was different from anything else I had read.”

DW of Toothy Books “read this book in between classes during my breaks, I read it during lunch, I even put off sleep just to finish this book because I had to know what happened. I can’t even remember the last time I was so entertained by a book.”

Mary of Bookfan said “there’s a lot of emotion packed into this story as it twists and turns its way to a satisfying conclusion.”

Julie of Booking Mama “was extremely impressed with Ms. Dave’s writing style and thought her insights into love and relationships were spot-on.”

To enter to win one of three copies of THE FIRST HUSBAND, by Laura Dave, simply fill out the entry form.  Contest is open to those with a US address only – one entry per person, please.  I will use to determine the winner. Contest ends at midnight EST Thursday, April 26, 2012.   Winner will be announced on Friday, April 27, 2012.  Comments are welcome (and appreciated) but will not get you an entry in the contest.
