Welcome to the Jumping Genres in June Giveaway Hop hosted by StuckInBooks.
I don't feature a lot of Chick Lit here at Life With Two Boys so in sticking to the jumping genres theme, one lucky reader is going to win a hardcover copy of New York Times bestselling author Patti Callahan Henry's new book, The Idea of Love, which releases later this month.
The Idea of Love is a duplicitous and compelling story of love lost and found in unexpected places...
A Nicholas Sparks-esque screenwriter lacking inspiration in the wake of his divorce, Blake is desperately in search of a love story beautiful enough to translate into big screen success. Disguising himself as a travel writer, he treks down the east coast to sleepy southern Watersend in search of a love story he can borrow. When he speaks with the young and beautiful Ella Flynn, he's convinced he has his screenplay: Ella's beloved husband died saving her life. It's the perfect love story for his audiences...and it's also a lie.
Reeling from the shock of her very much alive husband's affair, Ella is lost. When she speaks to Blake and dismisses him as a stranger she'll never see again, she creates the life she wants and paints herself as a successful wedding dress designer recovering from her saintly husband's sacrificial death.
Drawn to each other's lies and grappling with their flawed understandings of love, Ella and Blake's chance meeting gradually leads to more encounters and a larger web of deceit. As Blake and Ella bind themselves tighter with the lies they tell, the inevitable unraveling of their stories will end as neither imagined.
This giveaway is open to residents of US and Canada, ages 18+.
