French Book Giveaway -- The Sisters of Versaille

As my husband and I start preparing for our move to France, in one year and 117 days, I'm giving away some of my books set in France. This week, it's a historical novel called The Sisters of Versailles by Sally Christie. I reviewed this one for FranceBookTours and you can find the review here.
The novel, based on a true story, is about a family of five sisters, four of whom became mistresses to the king, Louis XV during the 18th century.
The book gives a true feel for the sumptuous, wasteful lifestyles of many of the royalty during this period of French history, but also delves into the emotions of the characters. I enjoyed this one and I think you will too.
I have a paperback copy that I will mail to you if you're the winner.
There are several ways to enter, beginning with leaving a comment on my blog.
Good luck, and I'll notify you next Sunday if you won so I can send you the novel.

I should have started a list at the start of all the Paris and France books I have read - and I have run into several other people that are as obsessed.

Isn’t it strange that I think about missing you when you go to France!! It must be something about the distance making even the prospect of meeting you less limey. Very odd:)

That was supposed to say less likely"

Sim, That is funny. And no doubt we'll see each other just as often. Wait! Maybe more often.

Haha, yes!

I want to read this book because I love historical fiction and am mad about anything French. Best of luck on your move.

How fun to be planning your move to France. I am reading a series of books by a woman who did just that. I think the novel sounds interesting.
