The Last Good Day of the Year blog tour & giveaway!

Welcome to the official blog tour for Jessica Warman's The Last Good Day of the Year! I'm very excited for this book—I love thriller/mystery-esque stuff, and this book looks right up my alley. And, if you stick it out, there's a giveaway just for you at the end!

Ten years ago, in the early hours of New Year’s Day, seven-year-old Samantha and her next door neighbor, Remy, watched as a man broke into Sam’s home and took her younger sister, Turtle, from her sleeping bag. Remy and Sam, too afraid to intervene at the time, later identified the man as Sam’s sister Gretchen’s much older ex-boyfriend, Steven, who was sent to prison for Turtle’s murder.

Now, Sam’s shattered family is returning to her childhood home in an effort to heal. As long-buried memories begin to surface, Sam wonders if she and Remy accurately registered everything they saw. The more they re-examine the events of that fateful night, the more questions they discover about what really happened to Turtle.


For my part of the tour, I've been given a seriously difficult question to answer: If I could construct a perfect day of the year, what would it look like? 

There are a few things I really love more than anything in the world (including books—GASP!) and it includes outdoors and my family. I can't imagine a more perfect day than spending an entire day on the water in the summertime with my family, kayaking or swimming or just relaxing. I love the calming feel of waves, whether it's on the lake or ocean, and I love spending time with my parents and brother. It seems boring and simple to some, but I love boring and simple, and to me, that seems like the most excellent way I could spend a day.


And now for the giveaway! The contest is US only and you must be 13 years or older to enter. Good luck!
