Giveaway Day 1

For my first giveaway, I have the fantastic book, The Will of Wisteria by Denise Hildreth.

From the back:

Charleston blue blood Clayton Wilcott "got religion" late in life; so late, it turns out his kids never took to it. So he's left a provisional will delivered in a highly unorthodox way.

Now they're going to have to honor Daddy's commandments from beyond the grave--for a full year--or be cut off from their substantial inheritances.

The scent of wisteria lingers in the air as the four spoiled Wilcotts battle for their birthright.

Here's the link to my review of The Will of Wisteria

I love Denise Hildreth's Savannah series, so i'm really looking forward to checking this one out!

The best book I've read recently... that's tough! I'm going to go with Perpetua by Amy Rachel Peterson. It's the kind of book you want to buy a million copies of, and give to everyone you know. :)

I love your geraniums. My grandmother kept them every summer.
I'd love a chance to win "The Will of Wisteria". I wonder if the title is connected to the "personality" of the plant?
The best book? So many good ones. The latest one I've read was "Bygones" by Kim Vogel Sawyer. Mostly about forgiveness and regrets. Happy tears in the end! ;-)

I have been wanting to read this book! I love the Savannah books by Denise Hildreth, and your review made this book sound really fascinating.

So I have to pick ONE book that was the best? :D lol I read so many it's hard to choose one that's the best. I guess out of the books I've read this week, the best one was probably "The Election" by Jerome Teel.

Thank you for the opportunity to win "The Will of Wisteria", and for the great review.

Sounds like a good book! The best book I have read recently was The Kite Runner which I just finished last night! It was such an intriguing look into the day to day life in Afghanistan and Afghani immigrants!

I just love the title of this book. I've always been a fan of Wisteria. :) This plot reminds me of the film The Ultimate Gift. Sounds good. The best book that I have read lately would be... we'll I'm stuck between two. "Sweet Caroline" by Rachel Hauck and "Beyond the Reflection's Edge" by Bryan Davis. Sweet Caroline had me from the first page and I felt that I was right there with the characters learning about what would happen next and yelling at the stupid boy. It took a few more pages to get into Bryan's speculative fiction novel, but once I was in I was hooked! It was really great, and both books had a great message and good "growing up" time.

The best book that I read recently was "His brother's castoff" by Lena Nelson Dooley. It made me cry and laugh and squeal with excitement. I had to burn the midnight oil to finish reading it. I would not put it down.
