Literary Blog Hop Giveaway!!!

Literary Blog Hop February 

So this giveaway is to break away from the Paranormal, Romance and/or Young adult books that so easily populate many book blogs (including this one!).  

I know time is of value so here is what I have for grabs:
The Pavement Gardener 
Summary:  "Against the backdrop of the global economic downturn, the need for work brings Mara from Latvia to South East London. Working for Spencer in the Hungry Londoner Café is not easy—he’s a sleazy, woman-hating, low-life with no moral compass and a bad gambling habit and, when he goes a step too far, Mara tries to think of a way to get even.

One evening, Mara discovers mysterious drawings of wild flowers on the pavement of the Pendean Council Housing Estate and can’t stop thinking about who has created them and why…

Callum is a young Irish gardener, working in London. A handsome, enigmatic figure, his solitary efforts to bring beauty into people’s consciousness captivates Mara. Fate and unstoppable chemistry throw Mara and Callum together and start a chain of events that they quickly lose control of.

When Mara discovers Spencer is organising ‘back-room’ fighting, the pair plan an elaborate sting to part Spencer from his ill-gotten profits. The scam takes them ever deeper into the murky and dangerous world of urban fight gambling and challenges Callum’s understanding of who he is and what he wants from life.

The gripping conclusion reveals the unpredictability of human nature and how revenge can become a double edged sword. A story of outsiders, human frailty and self-realization."

No cheating.  I verify all entries so please be honest.

Winner will be contacted within 48 hours of the giveaway ending so I ask that they respond back within 48 hours of being contacted or they will forfeit their winnings to someone else.

I am also participating in 'Romance is in the Air' Giveaway hop right now too.  Entries are mostly the same and you can do the same thing and enter both drawing (example comment on 1 review but enter both giveaways).  Check it out!
