Here it is, the very last daily contest! Tomorrow I’ll announce the winner of this one and then the Grand Prize and two First Prize winners!
So today’s book is: Susan Elizabeth Phillips’ Ain’t She Sweet. I have a great deal of respect and admiration for SEP. I love her books. She has that special something that really appeals to me. Her characters are never perfect but you love them anyway and in Ain’t She Sweet, SEP gives us that girl in high school you loved to hate. The perfect, snotty girl who was pretty and popular and made people’s lives miserable. Only she’s an adult and things are never what they seem. Sugar Beth was my first SEP heroine and when she pulled it off so well, I knew I’d be a fan forever.
Blurb: Fifteen years ago, Sugar Beth Carey reigned supreme over the small Mississippi town of Parrish, but now she’s returning home a little bit shabby around the edges to claim a valuable painting left to her by her disapproving aunt. Fifteen years ago, Colin Byrne arrived in Parrish from England as a new teacher only to have his career destroyed by a spiteful young Sugar Beth. Fifteen years ago, Sugar Beth had everything Winnie Davis ever wanted, but because Winnie had the one thing Sugar Beth could never have, she turned Winnie’s life into a perpetual hell. So now Colin, a best-selling author, and Winnie, Parrish’s richest citizen, are determined to exact revenge for Sugar Beth’s past sins, but much to their surprise, neither one finds revenge to taste quite as sweet as they expected once they get to know the new Sugar Beth. A hero who wouldn’t be out of place in the pages of a Regency romance, a heroine who is equal parts grit and class, and a basset hound with a personality disorder are just a few of the memorable characters in Phillips’ sassy, sexy contemporary romance.
This one will ship directly from Amazon so the winner needs to live within the amazon delivery area (I can do Canada, UK and United States).
Today’s question: We’ve all got that book – the one that made us a fan of a certain author. What was yours? I know we’ve all got many of them so you need only list one (or you can put multiple ones down too, it’s all good with me!) Ain’t She Sweet was my Susan Elizabeth Phillips book – I’ve devoured everything she’s written ever since.
I’ll draw the winner at noon pacific tomorrow (May 4) Winners have seven days to claim their prize, after that time, I’ll redraw for a new winner. Good luck!!
