Giveaway: A Pinch of Love

Summary: Rose-Ellen "Zell" Carmichael Roy doesn't cook, but she wears her late husband Nick's camouflage apron every day. That's her widow style. It's been more than a year since Nick's tragic death during a post- Katrina relief mission in New Orleans, but Zell can't bring herself to move on. Then, a postman's error spurs her to enter a baking contest in the hopes of donating the grand prize to the hurricane survivors in Nick's memory. After Zell's first attempt at baking goes embarrassingly awry, she meets Ingrid Knox-her motherless nine-year-old neighbor-and the two forge an unlikely friendship that will alter both their lives forever. -- Plume

Last year, I reviewed a delightful book called SIMPLY FROM SCRATCH by Alicia Bessette -- you can read my review here. Well, the publisher has just released the paperback under a new title. It's called A PINCH OF LOVE. Isn't that just a cute title and a cute cover?

A PINCH OF LOVE tells the story of Zell, a young widow who is trying to cope with the loss of her husband. When she enters a baking contest in the hopes that she can donate the grand prize to the victims of Katrina, she finds some new friends and she also discovers some important things about herself. It is a sweet story that will touch your heart, and I love how it explored grief. It will also make a terrific book club pick!

Thanks to the publisher, I have a copy of A PINCH OF LOVE to share with one lucky reader. To enter, just fill out the form below before November 9th at 11:59 p.m. ET. I will randomly select and notify the winner the following day. This contest is open to those of you with U.S. addresses only.

I thought this sounded familiar! What a sweet premise. I think my heart might be able to use something like this.

I went back and read your review. What a lovely book to read on a snow-bound day here in MN!
