The Violets of March Give-away - Midsummer's Eve Blog Hop Give-away

It's the Summer Solstice! Besides being the longest day of the year, it is also Neal's birthday. I can hardly believe he is turning ten. To celebrate, I am participating in the Midsummer's Eve Blog Hop hosted by Inspired Kathy at I Am A Reader Not a Writer.

Do you remember how much I enjoyed The Violets of March by Sarah Jio? I reviewed it : here. I liked it so much that I gave a copy to my former college roommate who grew up on Bainbridge Island, the setting for the book. And now, the publisher has generously donated a copy of the book so that I can give one away to one of my lucky and faithful readers.

It's super easy to enter:

1. Become a follower of Utah Mom's Life Blog if you're not already and then leave a comment on this post.

For additional entries:

1. Use Twitter, Facebook or your own blog to spread the word about this give-away. Leave a comment on this post for each thing you do.

The contest will be open for entries until Friday, June 24th at 11:59 MST. The winner will be announced on Saturday, June 25th. This give-away is open to residents of the US and Canada.

Once you've entered to win a copy of The Violets of March, check out the rest of the blogs giving away books this week. Lots and lots of opportunities to win books!

I would love this book after reading how much you enjoyed it and I love Bainbridge Island except the little stores and shops close up so early. Don't blame them, really. That whole Puget Sound is glorious!

I am a follower with my fingers crossed. Tomorrow I'll get little Miss Megan to cross her toes for me - that should bring me enchanted luck!

I'm trying to become a new follower, but I keep getting the message that that link does not work. :-( Thanks for offering this great giveaway anyway.

My mom's been sick and I never got around to signing up for the Midsummer Hop, but I'm giving away a beautiful copy of Anna and the French Kiss on my blog Readerbuzz in June. I'd love to have you stop by and throw your name in the hat!
