Giveaway: She's Gone Country by Jane Porter - it comes out tomorrow!

Last year I found a new-to-me author, I was new to blogging and reviewing and was offered a book by Jane Porter.  It sounded interesting so I jumped at the chance.  Well it turns out I loved the book, so when Brianne Beers offered me a chance to review She's Gone Country, Jane Porter's new release, I jumped again.

The good news for you is I get to offer 5 copies for review as well.  My review will be coming later this week, but enter to win or go out and buy a copy tomorrow when it releases.  It's sure to be another hit and I can't wait to read it.

Here's more information about the book and the giveaway is below.

She's Gone Country 

She's Gone Country by Jane Porter
Publisher: 5 Spot
Release: August 23, 2010
Paperback, 400 pages

Shey Darcy, a 39-year-old former top model for Vogue and Sports Illustrated led a charmed life in New York City with a handsome photographer husband until the day he announced he'd fallen in love with someone else. Left to pick up the pieces of her once happy world, Shey decides to move back home to Texas with her three teenage sons. Life on the family ranch, however, brings with it a whole new host of dramas starting with differences of opinion with her staunch Southern Baptist mother, her rugged but overprotective brothers, and daily battles with her three sons who are also struggling to find themselves. Add to the mix Shey's ex-crush, Dane Kelly, a national bullriding champ and she's got her hands full. It doesn't take long before Shey realizes that in order to reinvent herself, she must let go of an uncertain future and a broken past, to find happiness--and maybe love--in the present.

Summary -

Wow what a week - it really wasn't that busy, but I just took a blogging break.  Hopefully I will be back and refreshed now.

I dropped the oldest off for his first day of 4th grade this morning.  It was hard getting up early again, but it feels great to get back in the groove.  The youngest has his first day of Kindergarten tomorrow so that should be exciting.

Hope to get more reading done this week and lots of reviewing, I need to get caught up!
