Author Jane Green’s Saving Grace {+ Giveaway}

Saving Grace by Jane Green - Thoughts in ProgressWith the Christmas holidays underway I hope you and your families are having a wonderful time. Christmas is also a great time to get new books so I want to tell you about a book that releases this month I think you’ll like.

Author Jane Green’s 16th novel, SAVING GRACE, will be released by St. Martin’s on Dec. 30th. To celebrate this release (thanks to the lovely Meg at Tandem Literary), I have a copy of this intriguing book to giveaway. In addition, the author has a special pre-order promotion. But first, here’s a brief description of the book.

Hardcover: 352 pages
Publisher: St. Martin's Press (December 30, 2014)
ISBN-13: 978-1250047335

        Grace and Ted Chapman are widely regarded as the perfect literary power couple. Ted is a successful novelist and Grace, his wife of twenty years, is beautiful, stylish, carefree, and a wonderful homemaker. But what no one sees, what is churning under the surface, is Ted’s rages. His mood swings. And the precarious house of cards that their lifestyle is built upon.
        When Ted’s longtime assistant and mainstay leaves, the house of cards begins to crumble and Grace, with dark secrets in her past, is most vulnerable. She finds herself in need of help but with no one to turn to…until the perfect new assistant shows up out of the blue. 
        To the rescue comes Beth, a competent young woman who can handle Ted and has the calm efficiency to weather the storms that threaten to engulf the Chapman household. Soon, though, it’s clear to Grace that Beth might be too good to be true. This new interloper might be the biggest threat of all, one that could cost Grace her marriage, her reputation, and even her sanity. With everything at stake and no one to confide in, Grace must find a way to save herself before it is too late.

Powerful and riveting, Jane's SAVING GRACE will have you on the edge of your seat as you follow Grace on her harrowing journey to rock bottom and back.
