A Rather Charming Invitation Book Review and Giveaway

I'm a total bookworm.

Hand me a book and I'll devour it.


So, of course, I love an excuse to sit down and read.

I was sent a copy of A Rather Charming Invitation by C.A. Belmond to review and one to giveaway.


I'm going to quote part of the press release that I was sent because I'm lazy like that it states it better than I could:

"With her trademark wit, wisdom, empathy and humor, Belmond delivers another tale in which her throughly likeable characters experience la grande vie while exploring a fascinating secret history and family intrigue. Their remarkable journeys trigger Penny's appealing first-person narrative. She offers insights into the fascinating locales she visits and the intriguing people she encounters, providing readers with the perfect armchair voyage of of travel, food, wine, love, and life's little pleasures."

Charming really does describe this book.


You can win it!

First entry: Be a follower of my blog. Yes, I play favorites like that. Leave one comment telling me that you follow.

Bonus entry(please leave an additional comment): Enter the Uprinting giveaway that I have going on this week. Click HERE to enter.
