Jane Green’s Tempting Fate {+ Giveaways}

JaneGreen_TF_GiveawayI’m delighted today to share with you that author Jane Green’s TEMPTING FATE, a New York Times bestseller in hardcover this spring, was recently released in paperback. 

To celebrate this event, thanks to the author and Meg at Tandem Literary, I have a copy of the book and two sets of custom TEMPTING FATE wine charms. The winner will receive a book plus eight charms (four charms per set). Each set includes a purse, a shoe, sunglasses, and a goblet. Please see the end of the post for more details.

Here’s a brief synopsis of TEMPTING FATE:

        When Gabby first met Elliott she knew he was the man for her. In twenty years of marriage she has never doubted her love for him—even when he refused to give her the one thing she still wants most of all. But now their two daughters are growing up Gabby feels that time and her youth are slipping away. For the first time in her life she is restless. And then she meets Matt…
 Tempting Fate by Jane Green - Thoughts in Progress       Intoxicated by the way this young, handsome and successful man makes her feel, Gabby is momentarily blind to what she stands to lose on this dangerous path. And in one reckless moment she destroys all that she holds dear.
        Consumed by regret, Gabby does everything she can to repair the home she has broken. But are some betrayals too great to forgive?

Here’s what others are saying about the book:
