Giveaway: The Imposter's Daughter

July Giveaway

Just in time for Summer
3 copies available


Wow...here's a great one from Hachette.  The Impostor's Daughter will be coming out in paperback on July 12th, and they've given us 3 free copies to giveaway.  I haven't gotten my review copy yet, but here's what they tell me it's all about:

  • Laurie Sandell grew up in awe (and sometimes in terror) of her larger-than-life father, who told jaw-dropping tales of a privileged childhood in Buenos Aires, academic triumphs, heroism during Vietnam, friendships with Kissinger and the Pope. As a young woman, Laurie unconsciously mirrors her dad, trying on several outsized personalities (Tokyo stripper, lesbian seductress, Ambien addict). Later, she lucks into the perfect job--interviewing celebrities for a top women's magazine. Growing up with her extraordinary father has given Laurie a knack for relating to the stars. But while researching an article on her dad's life, she makes an astonishing discovery: he's not the man he says he is--not even close. Now, Laurie begins to puzzle together three decades of lies and the splintered person that resulted from them--herself.
I love books where good characters are involved in mysterious plots, and the story of Laurie trying to find not only her father but herself intrigues me to no end.  I can't wait to get this one.


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.   Altogether you could have up to 13 entries.
  5. US and Canadian addresses only, no PO Boxes
  6. Deadline is July 21st -noon EDT.
Thanks again to Valerie at Hachette for making this one available.

  2. I like the fact that she finds out her dad is like a lot of people and makes himself seem like someone else.

  4. Tina...I would love a chance to win. I like stories where one of the characters are not who they claim to be, and this sounds like one of them.
