Hachette Book - Giveaway - Elin Hilderbrand's



A Circle of Books Summer Reading Giveaway!
Thank you Valerie From Hachette Book Group.

The book: The Summer Affair by Elin Hilderbrand

You just have to check out the video HERE
***See the end of this post for Readding Group Guide information.

Book Information

Claire Danner Crispin, mother of four young children and nationally renowned glassblower, bites off more than she can chew when she agrees to co-chair the Nantucket's Children Summer Gala.

Claire is asked to chair the benefit, in part, because she is the former high school sweetheart of rock star Max West. Max agrees to play the gala and it looks like smooth sailing for Claire-until she promises a "museum-quality" piece of glass for the auction, offers her best friend the catering job, goes nose-to-nose with her Manhattan socialite co-chair, and begins a "good-hearted" affair with the charity's Executive Director, Lockhart Dixon.

Hearts break and emotions are pushed to the limit in this riveting story of one woman's attempt to deal with loves past and present, family, business, and high-powered social pressures. Elin Hilderbrand's unique understanding of the joys and longings that animate women's lives will make this her newest summer bestseller.

hmmmm. Favorite beach? I'm not sure. I'll say Bradenton Beach, where we have our family reunion every year. It's a little more "rustic", with trees to sit under.

I used to live in Savannah GA, and even though it is not the prettiest beach, it was close and not too populated so I loved it.

Thanks

Annie said...

My most favourite beach is Rathtrevor Beach in Parksville, British Columbia!!

Its very shallow and the kids can go out for ages with no fear of deep water!

The best time to go swimming is after the sand has been warmed up by the sun when the tide is out and then when the tide comes back in, the sand heats up the water; omgosh I love it!

Sand dollars are everywhere, crab, clams etc.


Thanks

Ok...I LOVE beaches! My favorite so far that I have been to would have to be in Cancun Mexico. The sand is so fine there and after walking a few days barefoot you no longer need a pedicure! lol

Yours being one of them, of course. LOL

This is fun. I'm just getting my head round all these great posts that cross reference each other...when I do, I'll join in.

This looks like a great beach read for the summer although I must confess my favorite beach is slightly out of the ordinary.

It completely lacks sand and is made completely of stone and granite up in the Canadian shield on Georgian Bay.

Thanks for the contest,
Cheers,

My favorite beach is at our cabin in Michigan. The beach is on a rather shallow, sand-bottom lake. Perfect for cooling down in the summer!

My favorite beach is the beach on Boracay Island, Philippines. It has fine white sand, dozens of small restaurants and shops, and local masseuses and fruit shakes all readily available. Live music at night and candles and lights everywhere, but somehow it doesn't feel crowded. Everyone seems so fit and young.

squiresj said...

My favorite beach is in Jamaica. I went there on a Mission trip the year before I met and married my husband. This year we will be married 30 years so it was a long time ago.
I also like the beach at Gulf in Texas. My husband, I and youngest daughter would go there every 4 days. My husband worked 4 days on and 4 days off. We'd surf fish. I still have my rods but nowhere to use them. We loved catching sand shark and lived on them - sure was cheap food as we had a casting net and caught our own shrimp to fish with. Memories

The only 'real' beach I've been to was near Galveston, TX, but the most fun I had on a beach was a tiny one near Juneau, AK. It was too cold to swim, of course, and I spent the time picking up shells.

This book sounds wonderful. The author's video clip was great. I really think my book club would enjoy it also. I just finished another women's fiction book by Linda Overman called Letters Between Us which I really enjoyed.

Here's to reading a great book on my favorite beach...Long Beach, Washington!
