Friday Freebie: The Sweetheart Deal by Polly Dugan

Congratulations to Andrew Beck, winner of last week's Friday Freebie, Orient by Christopher Bollen.

This week's book giveaway is The Sweetheart Deal by Polly Dugan. Read on for more information about the book Elin Hilderbrand, author of Beautiful Day, called “the most romantic story I've read in years.”

Leo has long joked that, in the event of his death, he wants his best friend Garrett, a lifelong bachelor, to marry his wife, Audrey. One drunken night, he goes so far as to make Garrett promise to do so. Then, twelve years later, Leo, a veteran firefighter, dies in a skiing accident. As Audrey navigates her new role as widow and single parent, Garrett quits his job in Boston and buys a one-way ticket out west. Before long, Audrey's feelings for Garrett become more than platonic, and Garrett finds himself falling for Audrey, her boys, and their life together in Portland. When Audrey finds out about the drunken pact from years ago, though, the harmless promise that brought Garrett into her world becomes the obstacle to his remaining in it.

You can also read more about The Sweetheart Deal in last month’s edition of Front Porch Books here at The Quivering Pen.
