THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATS CARY AND JESSICA ON YOUR WINS!!
I literally squealed with delight when I was offered an advance copy of A Spear of Summer Grass by DeAnna Raybourn!! The book was delightfully easy to read and a definite for your summer beach bags. Set in vibrant and dangerous 1920’s Africa (which was fascinating in and of itself), the colorful cast of characters and unlikely romance kept me turning the pages late into the night. More so than the whodunit thread, I found myself desperately wanting to see the dazzling and notorious Delilah open her steely heart to the deliciously mysterious Ryder White. I only wish this was first in a series!
The official synopsis:
New York Times bestselling author of the Lady Julie Grey series enters a new era with A Spear of Summer Grass.
The daughter of a scandalous mother, Delilah Drummond is already notorious, even amongst Paris society. But her latest scandal is big enough to make even her oft-married mother blanch. Delilah is exiled to Kenya and her favorite stepfather’s savannah manor house, until gossip subsides.
Amidst the wonders—and dangers—of Africa, Delilah awakes to a land out of all proportion: extremes of heat, darkness, beauty and joy that cut to her very heart. Only when this sacred place is profaned by bloodshed does Delilah discover what is truly worth fighting for—and what she can no longer live without.
If you blend glamour from The Great Gatsby and romance from “Out of Africa,” you are beginning to grasp the stunning new novel that is A Spear of Summer Grass.
