Shoot the Moon Giveaway!!!!

Thanks to all who entered! See who won here.

Valerie at Hachette Books has an amazing offer for my readers!!!

She has offered to send Billie Letts' book, Shoot the Moon, to up to five readers! I read this book a few years ago and loved it.

Here's a summary:
In 1972, windswept DeClare, Oklahoma, was consumed by the murder of a young mother, Gaylene Harjo, and the disappearance of her baby, Nicky Jack. When the child's pajama bottoms were discovered on the banks of Willow Creek, everyone feared that he, too, had been killed, although his body was never found.

Nearly thirty years later, Nicky Jack mysteriously returns to DeClare, shocking the town and stirring up long-buried memories. But what he discovers about the night he vanished is more astonishing than he or anyone could have imagine. Piece by piece, what emerges is a story of dashed hopes, desperate love, and a secret that still cries out for justice...and redemption.


I remember really enjoying this book and know you would too. I recently read her latest book, Made in the U.S.A. and reviewed it here.

To be entered for the drawing, please comment on this post. Be sure to leave either your email address or your blog address so I can contact you if you win. If you blog about this giveaway you will get five bonus entries. If you do blog about it, be sure to leave a comment with the link to the specific post about the giveaway on your blog so I can count it.

This giveaway is only for readers in the United States and Canada (and no PO Boxes, sorry). Last day to respond is Tuesday, September 16th.

A big thank you to Valerie and Hachette Book Group for providing this giveaway!

I have this book but never read it. Probably I should.

Hey, I wanted to mention to you that Hachette is spelled without that first t.. I made the same mistake on my first Hachette giveaway and someone pointed it out to me.. I'm just paying it forward!!! LOL

Ang said...

Sounds like a great book! I'll enter!

I saw you reviewed James Patterson's Sail a few posts back. I have that sitting in my "to read" pile. I better get on that one!

I think you have my email.. ;)

Michele said...

Thanks for the heads up on the spelling Lisa! I fixed it.
