Giveaway: Win a copy of The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues by Edward Kelsey Moore

You might have noticed that it's been a bit quiet on the blog lately as sadly things have taken their toll on me recently and I've hit a bit of a reading/reviewing slump...  I've not read more than a page or two over the last ten days or so which is pretty unusual for me as I'm normally glued to a book or my Kindle 😢

Today I had hoped to have found the motivation to write a review to share with you all but the words are failing me as well so instead I've decided to do a Friday giveaway as a treat to say thank you to the loyal supporters of my blog.  So the book I've decided to promote and giveaway is another one of the books I received unexpectedly recently which realistically I'm not in a position to read for review The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues by Edward Kelsey Moore which was published yesterday.

When a late life love affair blooms between Mr. Forrest Payne, the owner of the Pink Slipper Gentleman's Club, and Miss Beatrice Jordan, famous for yelling warnings of eternal damnation at the Club's departing patrons, their wedding summons a legend to town. Mr El Walker, the great guitar bluesman, comes home to give a command performance in Plainview, Indiana, a place he'd sworn never to set foot in again.

Among those in this tightly knit community who show up every Sunday after church for lunch at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat are the lifelong friends known locally as The Supremes: Clarice, facing down her chance at and fear of a great career; Barbara Jean, grappling with the loss of a mother whose life humiliated both of them, and Odette, reaching toward her husband through an anger of his that she does not understand.

If The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues sounds like something you'd like to read then enter via the Rafflecopter form below.  As with all giveaways on the blog, the giveaway is open to existing followers.  The winner will be selected at random next week and contacted for their post address to enable me to post the book to you. NB. Please do not add details of this giveaway to other sites without my permission.
