Giveaway: The Secrets of Newberry by Victor McGlothin...

June 4, 2010
Today, I have for you... three copies of Victor McGlothin's The Secrets of Newberry... Thank you, Hachette Book Group!

About the book:
For Ivory Bones Arcineaux and Julian Bynote, life in 1950s New Orleans couldn't be sweeter. Friends since they met in an illegal gambling house in Newberry, Louisiana, they have their pick of all the fine women, good food, and hot nights they can handle. They seem to have it made--especially Julian who begins to make a new life for himself after meeting the beautiful, classy Magnolia Garbo at a social. But both men are about to find out that letting the good times roll can be deadly when a simple robbery goes wrong and Julian witnesses Bones murdering a man in cold blood. The victim was a white city councilman with all the right connections-and if the two are discovered, it will mean the end to everything they've built together. With the New Orleans police hot on their trail, Julian must decide whether rolling in the fast lane is worth losing his freedom and his life.

I've never been to New Orleans but to me it'll always be associated with Interview With The Vampire.

I've never been to New Orleans either, but I always think of the spooky, above ground tombs in their cemetaries when NO comes to mind. Thanks for the chance to win.

When I think of New Orleans I think of the hurricane that destroyed so much. I have never been there but would like to visit sometime.

New Orleans was the spot that my husband and I snuck away to when our daughter was younger. It's not that far from Texas and it is great fun. The food (truly the best and I'm not kidding), a great aquarium, Jackson Square, many, many fun times. Really, really romantic.

We drove through New Orleans on our way to an International Lions Club Convention in Miami when I was in junior high school. My oldest brother got selected to be an extra in a movie that was being filmed that day. So we got to spend some more time sightseeing while he was being filmed. It is a wonderful place to visit, and I hope to go back some day.

The total miles of canals (above and below ground) in New Orleans exceed that of Venice in Italy.

I went to Mardi Gras in 1976 and had an amazing time: New Orleans is great music, amazing beignets and chicory coffee, fantastic people, and a resilient spirit!
