Giveaway: The Castaways

The Castaways: A Novel
About the Book:
Greg and Tess MacAvoy are one of four prominent Nantucket couples who count each other as best friends. As pillars of their close-knit community, the MacAvoys, Kapenashes, Drakes, and Wheelers are important to their friends and neighbors, and especially to each other. But just before the beginning of another idyllic summer, Greg and Tess are killed when their boat capsizes during an anniversary sail. As the warm weather approaches and the island mourns their loss, nothing can prepare the MacAvoy's closest friends for what will be revealed.

Once again, Hilderbrand masterfully weaves an intense tale of love and loyalty set against the backdrop of endless summer island life.

Thanks to the nice folks at Hachette Books, I have three copies of The Castaways
to give away.  Here is how to enter:
1.  Leave a comment with your name, your email address and the name of one book featured on Hachette's website.  The book must be one no other published commenter has named (since I moderate comments, if two unpublished comments name the same book, I'll let that go, but once the comment has been published, no one else can name that book.
2.  Leave a comment saying that you follow me--and if you aren't now, start.  I will check.
3.  Spread the word about this giveaway--blog, tweet, facebook, message board, or email ten or more friends with a bcc to me at ruthjoec at gmail dot com.  Leave a comment for each thing you do; each action is worth an entry.
4.  Find another Hachette giveaway for some book besides this one (hint: you can find some on their website). Leave a comment here with the name of the book and a link to the contest.

US and Canada only; no PO Boxes.  Contest ends July 4.
