#Giveaway - Losing Clementine by Ashley Ream


ABOUT THE BOOK:

In thirty days Clementine Pritchard will be finished with her last painting and her life.

World-renowned artist and sharp-tongued wit Clementine Pritchard has decided that she's done. After flushing away a medicine cabinet full of prescriptions, she gives herself thirty days to tie up loose ends—finish one last painting, make nice with her ex-husband, and find a home for her cat. Clementine plans to spend the month she has left in a swirl of art-world parties, manic work sessions, and outrageous acts—but what she doesn't expect is to uncover secrets surrounding the tragedy that befell her mother and sister. In an ending no one sees coming, will we lose Clementine or will we find her?

A bold debut from an exciting new voice, Losing Clementine is a wonderfully entertaining and poignant novel about unanticipated self-discovery that features one of the most irresistible, if deeply flawed, characters to grace contemporary fiction in years.

  14. I learned that Ms. Ream sets her stories in a factionalized version of L.A. As a former SoCal gal, that appeals to me.

    By the way, I am a newsletter subscriber of Readaholic, but Rafflecopter refused to take note of that entry; there must be a glitch in the system.

  25. Not trying to win a book. I just wanted to say the novel sounds interesting. Heroines can be deeply flawed and still fascinating!

    Thanks for the review,
