Book Giveaway: No One You Know, by Michelle Richmond


Contest open May 19 – 26, 2009

Thanks to Michelle Richmond and Random House for providing a brand new, signed trade paperback of No One You Know (on sale today in bookstores) for giveaway on my blog! Last year I read Michelle’s novel The Year of Fog and loved it (read my review), so I am excited to offer my reader’s a chance to win her latest book.

About No One You Know (from the Publisher’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.
