Giveaway: The Smart One and the Pretty One by Claire LaZebnik

Many thanks to Miriam with the Hatchette Book Group for providing me with 5 copies of The Smart One and the Pretty One to give to lucky readers. 

I have not read this book yet myself but the descriptions make the book sound like a fun chick lit read. 

This is what Hatchette's website has to say about the book:

"This sparkling novel about two sisters is both witty and stylish. Even if you don't have a sister of your own, you won't be able to resist LaZebnik's charming take on modern relationships. Read it!"


- Holly Peterson, bestselling author of The Manny

When Ava Nickerson was a child, her mother jokingly betrothed her to a friend's son, and the contract the parents made has stayed safely buried for years. Now that still-single Ava is closing in on thirty, no one even remembers she was once "engaged" to the Markowitz boy. But when their mother is diagnosed with cancer, Ava's prodigal little sister Lauren comes home to Los Angeles where she stumbles across the decades-old document.

Frustrated and embarrassed by Ava's constant lectures about financial responsibility (all because she's in a little debt. Okay, a lot of debt), Lauren decides to do some sisterly interfering of her own and tracks down her sister's childhood fiancé. When she finds him, the highly inappropriate, twice-divorced, but incredibly charming Russell Markowitz is all too happy to re-enter the Nickerson sisters' lives, and always-accountable Ava is forced to consider just how binding a contract really is . . .



Sounds great! 

If you'd like to win a copy, here's all you need to do:

* Leave me a comment with an email address to contact you

For 5 extra entries: 

* Become a follower of my blog, or let me know if you already are and/or add me to your blogroll and/or mention my giveaway on your blog (and leave a link) or Twitter it

This giveaway is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.  No P.O. boxes.  I will draw the winners on Monday, September 21 and email the winners.

Good luck!

I followed you here from FreeKatie. Sign me up for the book give-away.

BTW I read on your bio page that you love true crime books. If you haven't read Black Dahlia Avenger, run, don't walk, to the keyboard and order the book from Amazon. It is one of the most fascinating books I have ever read and bonechillingly true. Written by Steve Hodel, he exposes the true killer of The Black Dahlia. It's an unbelievable story. If you enjoy it this topic will be one more to add to your obsessions list. Let me know if you like it.
