Another Audio Book Giveaway- The Island by Elin Hilderbrand

Another Great Giveaway for summer reading!
The Island
3 audio copies available 
by Elin Hilderbrand

Earlier, we had a contest for  Elin Hilderbrand's Castaways. After the excitement of that one, I'm thrilled to be able to giveaway (and review) another by this author set in New England off the coast of Nantucket, and just in time for the end of a glorious summer. This time, courtesy of Ana at Hachette Audio, we have three copies of THE ISLAND, read by Denise Hicks. Here's what the Hachette Book Group page says about this one:
From New York Times bestseller Elin Hilderbrand, a new novel set on Tuckernuck, a tiny island off the coast of Nantucket.  Four women-a mother, her sister, two grown daughters-head to Tuckernuck for a retreat, hoping to escape their troubles. Instead, they find only drama, secrets, and life-changing revelations.
"This story of one woman's midlife crisis is an emotional and heartfelt journey. It's a captivating tale of heartache, happiness, confusion and love."-Romantic Times BOOK club magazine.
"A gem of a summer read with a glamorous location, elite lifestyle, and Hilderbrand's appealing take on the constant stress that fills the lives of women everywhere."-Booklist
"Claire's walk on the dark side is pure voyeuristic fun...A perfect summer cocktail of sex, sun and scandal."-Kirkus Reviews
"Characters are as complex and fragile as glassblowing artist Claire's creations in Hilderbrand's latest Nantucket tale....this mom-lit novel stand(s) out from the pack."-Library Journal
 I enjoyed The Castaways so much I can't wait to 'ear-read' this one.  I really love audio books and this one promises to be really fun.
 
So here are the rules for the giveaway: 
  1. For one entry, leave a comment telling me something that interests you about this one. Include your email address (no email no win).
  2. For an extra entry, leave a separate comment telling me you're a follower (or become one and let me know).
  3. For another entry, make a separate entry telling me you blogged about the giveaway, (sidebars are fine) and LEAVE ME THE LINK to the posting.
  4. Since I don't twitter, tweet, or FB, you can get extra entries by visiting my blog every day, and leaving a comment about the current post.  Just leave your comment on the contest post and tell me something about that day's post. Say "daily entry and the date and blah blah blah about the daily post" YOU CAN DO THIS UP TO 10 times.
  5. US and Canadian addresses only, no PO Boxes
  6. Deadline is August 9th-noon EDT.
