Casting Off...Giveaway

Thanks to Kaitlyn from Berkley/NAL, Penguin Group USA, I can offer two copies of this terrific book as a giveaway. To enter, just leave me a comment with an email address.

I don't like making people jump through hoops to enter a giveaway. It's always nice if your comment was something other than "please enter me" and it would make my day (and could garner an additional entry) to have you as a follower.

However, it's fall and the weather has cooled off, so I'm feeling a bit...generous, and as long as I have your email address, it will suffice!

Giveaway ends Saturday 10/24. I will announce the winner then.

Giveaway Closed.


  1. Enjoyed your review! I love Ireland as a setting, wish I could visit someday. Thanks for hosting the giveaway !

  2. I really, really want to read this! After reading your review and seeing the adorable cover of the book, I grabbed my yarn and needles and started working on a scarf!

    I'm also a follower!


  3. I've just read your review and this sounds like a lovely book. I'd like to enter if you're willing to post overseas (I'm in New Zealand). I totally understand that mailing books can be very expensive, so no problem if you don't want to enter me.

    I enjoy following your blog and love the title - I only have one kid and I'm tired. I don't know that I could cope with two.

  4. Oops. Forgot the email address.


  5. No need to enter me! It's someone else's turn to win something from you. :) I just wanted to say, I kind of hate the hoop-jumping entries, too. Sometimes I do that, though, at my blog. It just depends on my mood. Hope you're having a fabulous weekend, Holly!
