As promised, I have an Advanced Reading Copy (ARC) to giveaway here on the blog this week. The book is A SUMMER IN EUROPE by Marilyn Brant, a women’s fiction title due out at the end of November.

On her thirtieth birthday, Gwendolyn Reese receives an unexpected present from her widowed Aunt Bea: a grand tour of Europe in the company of Bea’s Sudoku and Mah-jongg Club. The prospect isn’t entirely appealing. But when the gift she is expecting – an engagement ring from her boyfriend – doesn’t materialize, Gwen decides to go. At first, Gwen approaches the trip as if it’s the math homework she assigns her students, diligently checking monuments off her must-see list. But amid the bougainvillea and stunning vistas of southern Italy, something changes. Gwen begins to live in the moment – skipping down stone staircases in Capri, running her fingers over a glacier in view of the Matterhorn, racing through the Louvre, and taste-testing pastries at a Marseilles cafe. Revelling in every new experience – especially her attraction to a charismatic British physics professor – Gwen discovers that the ancient wonders around her are nothing compared to the renaissance unfolding within…

For a chance to win, simply leave a comment here on this thread between now and Friday, November 4th, at 5pm Pacific Time. I’ll post the winner at some point after that time, both here and in a new post. Good luck!

ETA: And the winner is Melinda! Congratulations! Keep an eye on your e-mail for information on how to claim your ARC. Thanks so much to everyone for playing along. More giveaways to come in the near future, so stay tuned!

  1. I’m looking forward to read this book. I can relate to the book as I spent a summer in Europe as well.

  2. This book sounds great. I’m already jealous of Gwendolyn – I would so love to spend a summer in Europe! Sigh…

    Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy!
