Lizzy & Jane Book Giveaway


Morning, reader friends. Today is all about Katherine Reay's upcoming novel, Lizzy & Jane, which you've probably already seen me rave about in some form or another. Normally I wouldn't be posting a review this much in advance of an October 28th book release, but since I am hosting this giveaway, it seemed like the right time to share a review and start stirring some excitement for the delightful Dear Mr. Knightley follow up that is Lizzy & Jane.

The giveaway will run for a longer period of time because the book doesn't release until the 28th and depending on which format you chose (Kindle or paperback), you'll either have the book in your inbox the day it releases or it will follow in your mailbox shortly afterwards.

The rules, synopsis and details are below.

This giveaway(s) is open to U.S. readers (or anyone outside the U.S will receive a Kindle copy). Also, please I will just ask that anyone who leaves a comment under "anonymous," please leave the same name you enter into the widget in your comment - it's not nearly as easy to try and match comments when there is no name and in fairness to everyone else, I want to be able to be sure everyone who used the Rafflecopter correctly has a fair chance at winning against those who abuse it - believe it or not, there have been a couple people that I could not verify. So please, I don't mean to overwhelm, but just keep this in mind when entering future giveaways. Also, make sure that your email address is the right one to reach you at as that is how I will contact you - if I don't hear from you within 48 hours, a new winner will be chosen.

Lizzy & Jane, by Katherine Reay

Synopsis: Lizzy and Jane never saw eye to eye. But when illness brings them together, they discover they may be more like Austen’s famous sisters after all.

Lizzy was only a teenager when her mother died of cancer. Shortly after, Lizzy fled from her home, her family, and her cherished nickname. After working tirelessly to hone her gift of creating magic in the kitchen, Elizabeth has climbed the culinary ladder to become the head chef of her own New York restaurant, Feast. But as her magic begins to elude her, Paul, Feast’s financial backer, brings in someone to share her responsibilities and her kitchen. So Elizabeth flees again.

In a desperate attempt to reconnect with her gift, Elizabeth returns home. But her plans are derailed when she learns that her estranged sister, Jane, is battling cancer. Elizabeth surprises everyone—including herself—when she decides to stay in Seattle and work to prepare healthy, sustaining meals for Jane as she undergoes chemotherapy. She also meets Nick and his winsome son, Matt, who, like Elizabeth, are trying to heal from the wounds of the past.

As she tends to Jane's needs, Elizabeth's powers begin to return to her, along with the family she left behind so long ago. Then Paul tries to entice her back to New York, and she is faced with a hard decision: stay and become Lizzy to her sister’s Jane, or return to New York and the life she worked so hard to create? - Goodreads

    1. Well, you'll have to read DMK soon, Raquel. Not because it is related to L&J, just because it's awesome. :)

  7. I'm currently in a bit of a reading slump, mainly because I have been more focused on catching up on TV shows while crocheting for our bazaar. That being said I am trying to finish a book for my goodreads Book Scattagories game, I'm also in the middle of Deceived by Irene Hannon and Les Mis!

  10. I loved Dear Mr. Knightley. I think the cover is totally deceptive- I thought it would be fluffy chick-lit. Instead it was this deep novel that made me cry! :) Can't wait to read her newest book!

    1. I get that thought, Heidi - I was delighted with the cover because it was whimsical and so different from the norm, though I can see how its viewed as the cover for a more lighthearted read. :)
