I actually love well done time travel a lot, would love to win this one :)
Author: Ruth (CO)
I am not a fan of time travel so interested in finding out what made this one different.
Considering how miserable The Time Traveler’s Wife made me, I would love to know how this book meets the romance reader expectations of a HEA
Usually mainstream novels try to stay as far away from the genre label as they can get. The publicist’s encouraging romance readers to try this is delightful. I’d love to read a copy of this book.

I have a sister who loves time travel books. I don’t mind them myself, so if I won, so would she. Thank you for the chance to read it. :-)
Sounds like a fun book! Thanks for organizing a giveaway!
I noted on the earlier thread that this sounded interesting. Good to see the giveaway offering a chance to read it.

I love a great book and a contest combined….I liked The Time Traveler’s Wife, but it did get a bit confusing at times. And I did not consider it a romance.
A few months ago, Lydia H, a Putnam publicist/marketing individual, emailed me about a book called “Overseas”. Putnam is a hardcover imprint for Penguin and I confess that I was a little apprehensive about a mainstream book being billed as romantic. Romance can mean many things to non romance readers. Plus there was time travel and while I’ve read a few time travel and enjoyed them, I’ve also read many time travels that dealt with the concept poorly and left me despondent (Hello, Knight in Shining Armor). But Miss Lydia was persistent and I promised myself that I would only read the first chapter. As I said in my review, by the end of the first chapter, I was hooked.
I’ve been encouraging others to read this book and Elyssa Papa arranged for us to have a Twitter chat for the book on May 31. All the chatter and excitement prompted Lydia H to email me and offer up 5 books to giveaway. Dear Author will sponsor 3 digital books as well for a total of 8.
In summary, we are going to giveaway 8 copies to US/Canada residents. To enter, just drop a comment below. (The reason that this is a US/Canada giveaway only is because the book is only available in digital to those regions so I wouldn’t be able to buy it and gift it to someone outside of US/Canada). You can also enter a giveaway at Goodreads.
