ENTER TO WIN a copy of The Peach Keeper

This week, I’m thrilled to offer 3 free copies of The Peach Keeper, the latest book by Sarah Addison Allen.  I’m halfway though this book and loving the magical realism, slight fairy tale sensibility of the novel.  I first discovered Sarah at a writing conference before Garden Spells was released.  I snagged an advanced reader copy, entranced by the covers.  Sarah’s books have the best covers!

I was hooked on her.  She creates magical imagery with her words and her view of the world.  Similar themes thread through each of her books (Garden Spells, The Sugar Queen, The Girl Who Chased the Moon, and The Peach Keeper): friendship, family, fairy tales, and magic stand out among them.  I’m thrilled to be offering 3 copies of The Peach Keeper to 3 lucky winners this week.

On top of that, when I talked with Sarah and asked if she’d be interested in donating a book to Brenda Novak’s Online Auction to Benefit Diabetes Research, she jumped at the chance.  And not just The Peach Keeper…Sarah is donating a signed set of all her books to .  Go, Sarah!!!  The auction runs through the month of May so look for Sarah’s books there, too!


About The Peach Keeper

The New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Who Chased the Moon welcomes you to her newest locale: Walls of Water, North Carolina, where the secrets are thicker than the fog from the town’s famous waterfalls, and the stuff of superstition is just as real as you want it to be.

It’s the dubious distinction of thirty-year-old Willa Jackson to hail from a fine old Southern family of means that met with financial ruin generations ago. The Blue Ridge Madam—built by Willa’s great-great-grandfather during Walls of Water’s heyday, and once the town’s grandest home—has stood for years as a lonely monument to misfortune and scandal. And Willa herself has long strived to build a life beyond the brooding Jackson family shadow. No easy task in a town shaped by years of tradition and the well-marked boundaries of the haves and have-nots.

But Willa has lately learned that an old classmate—socialite do-gooder Paxton Osgood—of the very prominent Osgood family, has restored the Blue Ridge Madam to her former glory, with plans to open a top-flight inn. Maybe, at last, the troubled past can be laid to rest while something new and wonderful rises from its ashes. But what rises instead is a skeleton, found buried beneath the property’s lone peach tree, and certain to drag up dire consequences along with it.

For the bones—those of charismatic traveling salesman Tucker Devlin, who worked his dark charms on Walls of Water seventy-five years ago—are not all that lay hidden out of sight and mind. Long-kept secrets surrounding the troubling remains have also come to light, seemingly heralded by a spate of sudden strange occurrences throughout the town.

Now, thrust together in an unlikely friendship, united by a full-blooded mystery, Willa and Paxton must confront the dangerous passions and tragic betrayals that once bound their families—and uncover truths of the long-dead that have transcended time and defied the grave to touch the hearts and souls of the living.

Resonant with insight into the deep and lasting power of friendship, love, and tradition, The Peach Keeper is a portrait of the unshakable bonds that—in good times and bad, from one generation to the next—endure forever.
