A chat about Indiscreet, plus a Giveaway

January 31, 2010 at 11:00 pm 32 comments

Last year, Lea (Closetwriter) thought I would enjoy Carolyn Jewel’s Scandal and sent me her copy. Not only did I enjoy it, but it also became one of my Top 5 reads of 2009. (My review is here). I raved about Scandal to Carolyn (The Thrillionth Page) and told her I would forward the same copy of Scandal to her. (I later bought my own copy for my keeper shelf.) Lea then asked that Carolyn send it on to Christine (The Happily Ever After). It was so much fun to share a book and compare notes with each of them.

So, when Indiscreet, Carolyn Jewel’s latest historical, was released, Lea contacted us and asked if we wanted to pass it around again. Since we all were so eagerly anticipating the book, none of us wanted to wait for it to make its way to us. Instead, we decided to read it, and have a discussion about our thoughts on it.

Head on over to Lea’s Closetwriter to see what we thought about Indiscreet. Lea and I are both giving away 1 copy each of Indiscreet. Please comment to this post if you would like to be entered for my giveaway. You have until midnight (pacific time) on Friday, February 5, 2010 to enter here. I will ship to anywhere through thebookdepository.com or send an ebook through Fictionwise.

Also, head on over to Christine’s The Happily Ever After, where in honor of our Indiscreet party, she is whipping up a batch of pomegranate sherbet (like Foye and Sabine enjoy in the book) and sharing her recipe. I can’t wait to try this recipe out!

And, Carolyn has some Indiscreet-themed antics going on over at The Thrillionth Page, that I know you don’t want to miss. (I can’t wait to check it out, myself!)

Let the games begin!

      Oops! *blushes* I thought you mentioned something about your pointer post. Sorry! Love the dance, though. (I have a story about interpretive dance that I must tell you some time.)

    Renee, I have to say I enjoyed your discussion over at Lea’s. I have INDISCREET in my wish list and SCANDAL in my TBR pile. After all the discussion and reviews attached with SCANDAL now I really need to catch up.

    Thanks for sharing and for your awesome giveaway!!

    Ooo I’ve been meaning to read this book! It’s been on my list forever but I’ve been swamped. I love the premise and the bits and pieces I’ve read from it though 🙂

    Thanks for having the giveaway!

    Off to read the review now. Please don’t include me in the giveaway. I liked Scandal but yet it didn’t blow me out of the water (no, no idea why) although the more I think about it the more I remember enjoying it. I think I need to read it again at some point and then look at the author’s more recent release 🙂
