THE FIRST HUSBAND by Laura Dave

Winner announced HERE!






Laura Dave  is one of my most favorite authors. Her books sit on my special shelf. Yes, I have a special shelf! She’s also been extremely generous on MaNiC, having given away a boatload of her books here. She’s one of those authors that goes out of her way to make sure her readers know how much they are appreciated, and she’s been especially helpful to me in my quest for publication! I’m always thrilled to host her on MaNiC (which you also may note the change in name: BooKiNG with MaNiC!)

The First Husband came out in paperback today and it got a fun makeover in the cover department. It looks like candy, doesn’t it? Don’t you want to lick it? Yummy! And guess what? It is EVEN BETTER INSIDE!

What I love about Laura’s male characters is she makes them so endearing, you don’t know who is going to be the main catch! Laura’s the type of author who makes you fall in love with all of her characters. They’re so real and likeable, even the ones you’re not quite sure you’re supposed to like.

Back-of-the-book:

Annie Adams thinks she has it all. Her longtime boyfriend, Nick, is on the verge of becoming a successful film director, her travel column is nationally syndicated, and they've got a great dog. Her life finally feels like it is falling into place. Until, out of nowhere, Nick announces that he's reconnected with a woman from his past and he's moving out.

Reeling from Nick's exit, Annie stumbles into her neighborhood bar and finds Griffin, a down to earth chef who seems to be everything she didn’t know she wanted. Three months later, they’re married. And Annie finds herself in a small Massachusetts town -- completely unmoored and wondering if she’s picked a life on the rebound. When Nick returns, wanting a second chance, Annie's stuck: truly torn between her husband and the man she may have been meant to marry.

 
I’ve asked this question before but I’d like you to tell me who in the CELEBRITY world would be YOUR PERFECT FIRST HUSBAND – can be an actor, singer, or other random famous person. Tell me who that one ideal famous person is, and you will be entered to win THE FIRST HUSBAND!

Also, if you have NOT checked out Laura’s other books, GET TO IT! London is the Best City in America and The Divorce Party are absolutely positively AMAZING books!

Do NOT forget to go back and check in on all the other terrific books I’ve got up on the blog! There are about six still up for grabs! And you’ll have till through the weekend, then I’ll probably start drawing some names for winners! Get going! Lots of great books to win! There are fab books from these authors available NOW:  


Don’t miss ‘em! I just gave you ALL OF THE LINKS! Click on them here and it’ll take you right to the posts so you can enter with ease! (That’s what she said!)

As always, thanks to the awesome authors and publicists for sharing their books. US / Canada participants only. I never receive money for these posts, but man, if I did, I’d be rich by now, huh? It would be awesome if you could share this blog with your reader friends too - it's the best way for your friends to find out about these great authors!

Josh Radnor is my top choice, as long as he's like his character Ted Mosby on How I Met Your Mother -- romantic and "geeky-cool" with all the facts he knows about architecture, literature and grammar.

buttah said...

I would go with Paul Rudd...he's my funny adorable pick!!

Kristen DeDeyn Kirk said...

Oops...I was signed in as my daughter when I left the comment about Josh Radnor. She'd prefer one of the guys from One Direction!
