Book Giveaway: The One That I Want & Time of My Life

TNBBC is excited to present the following giveaway!

To celebrate the paperback release of Allison Winn Scotch's novel The One That I Want,
TNBBC is going to give away three sets of prizes:

Here is the book description as posted on Allison's website:

What if you woke up one day to all your dreams coming true...but those dreams were more like nightmares?

Tilly Farmer is thirty-two years old and has the perfect life she always dreamed of: married to her high school sweetheart, working as a school guidance counselor, trying for a baby. Perfect.

But one sweltering afternoon at the local fair, everything changes. Tilly wanders into a fortune teller's tent and meets an old childhood friend, who offers her more than just a reading. "I'm giving you the gift of clarity," her friend says. "It's what I always thought you needed." And soon enough, Tilly starts seeing things: her alcoholic father relapsing, staggering out of a bar with his car keys in hand; her husband uprooting their happy, stable life, a packed U-Haul in their driveway. And even more disturbing, these visions start coming true. Suddenly Tilly's perfect life, so meticulously mapped out, seems to be crumbling around her. And as she furiously races to keep up with - and hopefully change - her destiny, she faces the question: Which life does she want? The one she's carefully nursed for decades, or the one she never considered possible?

What if you could see into the future? Would you want to know what fate has in store?

Signed copies of The One That I Want & her previous novel The Time of My Life.

a signed copy of The One That I Want.

  13. I want to win a million dollars Lol
    Love & Hugs,

  14. I wouldn't...I like that the future is something we have to anticipate when everything else is pretty much out there. Bleh. You can read a blog for someone else's wisdom, but the future's something you have to figure out for yourself. Still, Tilly Farmer in Allison's new book resembles the many ppl I know who pay astrologers and fortune tellers. But even for Tilly, who's able to see the future, she's still ultimately responsible for deciding her destiny, even given the foresight. I think this would be the case for real life.
