Emily Ever After and Giveaway

***My next giveaway is Emily Ever After by Anne Dayton and May Vanderbilt. To enter leave a comment on this post with a way to contact you if you win. Deadline is Saturday April 12 at midnight. ***



Emily Hinton longs to leave her hometown of Jenks, California, for the big city, specifically Manhattan. With the help of her uncle Matthew, she lands a job at Morrow & Sons as an editorial assistant. Although enchanted by the glamorous city, Emily is determined to hang on to her Christian values. She attends church and volunteers at her uncle's soup kitchen, but she also tries to fit in with the girls at work, who are decidedly wilder than Emily. She thinks she's found the perfect guy in Bennett, who also works at Morrow--he's clean-cut, handsome, attentive, and a Christian, but his motives for pursuing her might not be as pure as they first seem. As much as she loves life in New York, leaving Jenks behind isn't as easy as Emily thought; she misses her family, and Jacob, an old friend, is looking more attractive than any of the sleek New York guys around her. Dayton and Vanderbilt's charming offering will appeal to readers looking for a wholesome heroine navigating big-city life. Kristine Huntley

This book reminds me a little of the show "Caroline in the City" with Lea Thompson! I am probably dating
myself, but as I read your synopsis of the book, the show is what I thought of. The book sounds like a wholesome, fun read. Please enter me in your drawing. Many thanks,Cindi
