Free Book: Major Pettigrew's Last Stand

Here's a good book to enjoy with a cup of tea: Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson. I've already started the story and I'm hooked. My review will be posted soon. In the meantime I'm offering a free copy to a lucky reader. Maybe it will be you?

Read this excerpt from the inside book jacket and let me know if it sounds interesting to you:
"Sometimes love does conquer all. You are about to travel to Edgecombe St. Mary, a small village in the English countryside filled with rolling hills, thatched cottages, and a cast of characters both hilariously original and as familiar as the members of your own family."
If this is your cup of tea I invite you to enter my giveaway for a brand new hardcover of Major Pettigrew's Last Stand.

Entering is easy. Everyone gets one chance at the book. If you live outside the USA or Canada, you can enter too if you have your own book blog. Winner will be announced on July 12 and selected randomly.

To enter, leave a comment and include your email address.
