Review and Giveaway: The Traitor's Wife by Kathleen Kent

If you've read The Wolves of Andover by Kathleen Kent, this is the same book.  It has been retitled.  I've seen some negative comments elsewhere because people have bought the book thinking it was a new book only to find out they've already read it.

I dearly love this story and it's been featured TWICE on this blog.  Once as a stand alone.  Then I said:

I LOVED this book. I listened to the audiobook, but still, I loved it. The pace and the progress the the story was perfect. The author slowly revealed tiny little bits of the story so that you constantly wanted to know more.

This was one of those really interesting books that made you feel like you were learning something while you were reading. It was a fantastic historical novel as well as a lovely romance. The afterword as a lot of information regarding the history included in the book that was very interesting and made me want to read Kathleen Kent's other book, The Heretic's Daughter.

As I said, I listened to the audiobook and I'd highly recommend it. The reader, Ellen Archer, did a superb job. Thanks to the Hachette group for providing the audiobook!
We also featured it during our Salem Witches Week when we had a day specifically for Kathleen Kent.  Both of her books were featured.

I was absolutely thrilled to meet Kathleen Kent in New Orleans this August.  She signed a copy of The Traitor's Wife for me and it'll definitely have a special spot on my bookshelf.

Now, you can win a copy of The Traitor's Wife.  Thanks to the great people at Hachette I have 3 copies of The Traitor's Wife and 1 copy of The Heretic's Daughter to give away.  The contest is open to residents of the US and Canada only, no P.O. Boxes, only one winner per household.

Please leave a comment with a valid email address.  Winners will be picked on Sept. 30th.
