Giveaway: The Second Date Love Italian-American Style

Are you in the mood for a light hearted, fun book to read? Then you have come to the right spot. I have one copy of the book, The Second Date Love Italian-American Style, to giveaway to one lucky reader, courtesy of the author herself, Mary Lydon Simonsen.


Sonia Amundsen looks like a Nordic goddess on the outside, but her heart, soul, and stomach are all Italian. She is also a successful professional who is about to celebrate her 30th birthday. Although friends have been setting her up on blind dates for two years, she never goes out on a second date with any of them because she is still looking for that perfect guy. The problem is that she has very specific criteria as to who Mr. Right is. Sonia is beginning to think that such a man is not out there until....

Set in the late 1980s, Sonia is surrounded by an extended Italian family, a caring, but over-bearing mother, warring aunts who use family funerals to stage full-blow tragedies, and a close friend, whose main goals in life are to get pregnant and to help Sonia find true love. The Second Date explores friendship and love in the heart of the Italian-American community where food is second importance only to love.

You can find my review here.


The rules are as follows:

* This is an international giveaway. Hooray!
* Please leave your email address so I can contact you.
* +1 entry for posting on your blog or sidebar. Leave me a link please.
* Deadline for entries is midnight, EST, January 31, 2010.

Good luck everyone :)
