Update: Georgia's Kitchen

 Winner Announced:

Congratulations to Kristin of Let's Take A Road Trip! You have won a copy of Georgia's Kitchen! Send me your address and I'll send you a copy!




Hey you guys! So, part of my new job is that I get info on awesome debut books and today Jenny Nelson's new book came out! ... BOOK GIVEAWAY!

Georgia's Kitchen!

Here's a quick blurb:

Talented chef Georgia Gray, 33, has everything a woman could want—the top job at one of Manhattan’s best restaurants, a posse of smart and savvy gal pals who never let her down, and a platinum-set, cushion-cut diamond engagement ring courtesy of Glenn, the handsome entertainment lawyer who Georgia’s overbearing mother can’t wait for her to marry. The table is set for the ambitious bride-to-be until a scathing restaurant review destroys her reputation. To add salt to her wounds, Glenn suddenly calls off the wedding.

Brokenhearted, Georgia escapes to the Italian countryside, where she sharpens her skills at a trattoria run by a world-class chef who seems to have it all—a devoted lover, a magnificent villa, and most importantly, a kitchen of her own. Georgia quells her longings with Italy’s delectable offerings: fine wine, luscious cheeses, cerulean blue skies, and irresistible Gianni, an expert in the vineyard and the bedroom. So when Gianni tempts Georgia to stay in Italy with an offer no sane top chef could refuse, why can’t she say yes?

An appetite for something more looms large in Georgia’s heart – the desire to run her own restaurant in the city she loves. But having left New York with her career in flames, she’ll need to stir up more than just courage if she’s to realize her dreams and find her way home.


And to celebrate, Jenny's hosting an awesome kick-butt giveaway. Here are the details:

Okay...my 1st time entering in one of your contests :) I wish my self luck!!!! I love books, we have so many my husband keeps telling me I have to downsize (he doesnt read).I keep telling him that he has to be kidding, does he know how many memories are w/ these books?? I remember the 1st time I read them..during pregnancies, having those babies in the hospital, middle of the night feedings where either the baby didn't want to go back to sleep or I didn't, when they were sick and I couldn't sleep, times my husband and I fought and I couldn't sleep. You get the picture...they are a part of me, of my family. I will NEVER let them go, I will just keep accumulating!! I love love love a good book that I NEVER want the ending to come. Thanks for the blog and the oppurtunity to win some good reads!!! GoOd DaY to you!!

I love your blog. I love adding your book recomendations to my list of books to borrow from the library. I have to borrow from the library or I'll go broke from buying books! I'm disappointed though. The Carol Stream library doesn't have A Maze of Grace. I'll have to see if surrounding area libraries have some sort of sharing policy...

Sorry to hear about all your snakes. While I like snakes (I have a pet ball python) I would not want to find wild ones in my yard... That's a little weird to say, isn't it?!
