Giveaway: Romance Novel Hardcover - Once in a Blue Moon by Eileen Goudge

UPDATE: The winners are Delora and Andie!

I read a romance novel about once in a blue moon. So when the offer to review Once in a Blue Moon by Eileen Goudge was sent around by the One2One network to review and I thought, sure, I'll check it out.

I couldn't get into it. I read the first chapter, saw the potential for love and heartache and family drama and a movie deal...and then I moved on. It's very Danielle Steele-y, which I understand in the publishing world is very high praise.

I think you have to love the genre, and since my soul is basically covered in pink polka dots, you'd think I'd be all about the bodice-rippers. But by some genetic fluke, when I sit on an airplane or beach I tend to grab something with star fleets or guns on the cover.

So dear Eileen Goudge, it's not you, it's me. You're a bestselling author of Woman in Red and have been praised by Luanne Rice and other masters in the romance world. I am no good judge of good lovin'.

Readers who like a good romance, or have a family member who does, leave a comment below. I have two brand-spanking new hardcover copies of Once in a Blue Moon for you, one will be mailed by the publisher and one of you guys will get my barely-cracked copy. I'll randomly draw the winners in one week.
