Giveaway!! A book a day in the month of May!!! Day 26!!

The end of the month is nigh, and I still have so many books to share, I may have to do this again! Today's book is an ARC of The Last Bridge by Teri Coyne. You can read my review of this book HERE.The book is on sale on July 28, and it's sort of fun to walk into the bookstore, see a newly published book and say to yourself, "oh I read that ages ago!" (Yes, I am THAT shallow! What can I say, it just tickles me pink!)
From Amazon

After a ten-year absence, Alex “Cat” Rucker returns to her Ohio hometown because of a letter left on her mother’s kitchen table—a suicide note, carefully preserved in a Ziploc® bag, that reads:

“He isn’t who you think he is. Love, Mom”

Thus opens this stunning debut novel from author Teri Coyne, who, with wry humor and sharp wit, follows Alex’s journey through the traumatic experiences of her youth and the haze of her adult life.

While Alex tries to repress the memories of her brutal childhood—an abusive father, her estranged (and possibly illegitimate) brother, and the first love who would do anything to save her—she must face just how shattered she still is. At each step Alex confronts her biggest fears, realizes the impact of her choices, and inches closer to redemption. Can she embrace her vulnerabilities, talents, and desire for love, or will the revelations of her mother’s cryptic note prove too overwhelming for her to bear?

The Last Bridge is a perfect blend of suspense, despair, and romance—and at its heart lies the question: are we a product of our experiences or our choices?

Each day's giveaway will run for one week, but I'll only send books out once a week, I don't think I have the patience required to hit the post office on a daily basis!

To enter this giveaway, please leave me a comment on this post and include an email address so I can get hold of you when you win, sorry...no email addy and I'll have to draw a different name.

For an extra entry, blog or tweet about the contest and let me know.

And for yet ANOTHER entry, follow my blog! And if you already follow...bless your pea-pickin' lil' heart, just say so in your comment and you get the extra entry! (Yes, I am, in fact shameless!)

How easy is that three chances to win!! Worldwide entries are welcome!

This giveaway ends on June 2nd, when I'll draw the lucky winner. Since I'm sending this one out myself, its open to anyone who wants to enter! And don't forget to scroll down and check out the other giveaways! Or you can find a list of all of them by clicking HERE!
