The Smart One and the Pretty One- Book Giveaway (5 copies!)

The description of the novel straight from Hachette's site:

When Ava Nickerson was a child, her mother jokingly betrothed her to a friend's son, and the contract the parents made has stayed safely buried for years. Now that still-single Ava is closing in on thirty, no one even remembers she was once "engaged" to the Markowitz boy. But when their mother is diagnosed with cancer, Ava's prodigal little sister Lauren comes home to Los Angeles where she stumbles across the decades-old document.
Frustrated and embarrassed by Ava's constant lectures about financial responsibility (all because she's in a little debt. Okay, a lot of debt), Lauren decides to do some sisterly interfering of her own and tracks down her sister's childhood fiancé. When she finds him, the highly inappropriate, twice-divorced, but incredibly charming Russell Markowitz is all too happy to re-enter the Nickerson sisters' lives, and always-accountable Ava is forced to consider just how binding a contract really is . . .

I shall be receiving my review copy shortly, but I wanted to get the contest up for my readers straightaway! Until my review is up dear readers, you can look over the Reading Group Guide, the Author's website, or peruse the book in the widget below.


Hachette has graciously offered, to my readers, 5 copies of The Smart One and the Pretty One by Claire LaZebnik!

I love the sound of this book. As a school librarian, the title of this giveaway reminds me of a children's book, The Pain and The Great One by Judy Blume. I love books about siblings that have very different personalities, but invested in each other's eventual happiness. Thank you for considering me!
