Bonus Giveaway: No One You Know by Michelle Richmond

WINNER: Valerie in California

To celebrate the May 19th release of No One You Know author Michelle Richmond has offered my visitors a chance to win a copy. Thank you Michelle!



Michelle's Website


All her life Ellie Enderlin had been known as Lila’s sister—until the day Lila, a top math student at Stanford, was murdered, and the shape of their family changed forever. Twenty years later, Ellie is a professional coffee buyer who has never put down roots. When, in a chance meeting, she comes into possession of the notebook that Lila carried everywhere, Ellie returns home to finally discover the truth about her sister’s death—a search that will lead her to Lila’s secret lover, to the motives and fate of a man who profited from their family’s grief, and ultimately to the deepest secrets even sisters keep from each other.

From the bestselling author of The Year of Fog (“Highly recommended [for fans of] authors like Jodi Picoult and Jacquelyn Mitchard.”—Library Journal [starred review]), this is a riveting family drama about loss, love, and the way hope redefines our lives—a novel at once heartbreaking, provocative, and impossible to put down.

I learned that Michelle is from Mobile, Alabama. I also learned that she is the recipient of the 2009 Hillsdale Award for Fiction from the Fellowship of Southern Writers, the Mississippi Review Fiction Prize, and the Associated Writing Programs Award.
I love writers that live or have lived in the South, as many of them write in a way that reminds me of my own Southern roots.
