Sunnyside Blues + Giveaway

Guest Review:
Sunnyside Blues
by Mary Carter
326 pages

A while back I received a book for review and my book club pal Nancy asked to read it. She is not a blogger so I can't tell you to go visit her site, but I can show you a picture of my book club with Nancy in it:

Nancy is back row, center, in purple - I'm in front in red

I hope you enjoy Nancy's review:
I am a member of the Storie delle Sorelle book club, a wife, mother of two young adult children, crafter, cook, gardener, and friend. I had the pleasure of reading Mary Carter's novel SUNNYSIDE BLUES. One will not be disappointed. The author focuses on Andes, a snake handler from West Virginia who is running from her past, and Chase, the 10-year-old son of Jay, the drunken owner of a houseboat in Seattle. There are many twists and turns that begin when Andes wants to rent Jay's houseboat. Andes soon finds herself responsible for Chase. They embark on a journey through which they find a sense of family, love, and discover their true selves.
Nancy really enjoyed this book, as she told me in several different emails. And thanks to author Mary Carter, you can enjoy it too!

This book has been on my wish list for a while. I'd like to read it because I'm interested in the bonding relationships that lead to the creation of a non-blood-related family. I also like the various locales that are mentioned in the description.

Thanks for the chance to win a copy!

No need to enter me. I read this one as an ARC and I enjoyed the main character. I thought the kid was not true to his age but I got over it.

Oh, oh, oh, pick me, pick me. :-D

I first saw this book on Ti's blog and I fell in love with the cover (I know, I'm shallow). I've been wanting to read it ever since.

I want to read Sunnyside Blues because it sounds like a good story. I like books where the characters may start out with a hard life, but eventually find the "family" they deserve.
