Enter for Your Chance to Win an Autographed Copy of Bittersweet

Think Gone Girl meets The Great Gatsby. One of the hottest thrillers of 2014. A twisty plot set in the glamorous world of the super-wealthy with dark characters and an ending that’ll keep you reading into the wee hours.

In anticipation of the paperback release of Bittersweet (coming in April 2015), we’re giving away autographed hardcovers! RIFers were among the first to read Miranda Beverly-Whittemore’s novel when we gave away Advance Reader’s Copies back in April.

RIFer Jen sums it up so well: “Intriguing, mystifying, heart-wrenching . . . Just as the characters draw you into their lives, Beverly-Whittemore throws a twist that keeps you turning pages and staying up reading way too late. I couldn’t put this one down! Bittersweet speaks to a woman’s heart. It is brimming over with love, laughter, and life lessons. A gutsy tale of mystery and discovery, with a little murder thrown in for good measure. This one is a must read!”

Here’s the story: on scholarship at a prestigious East Coast college, ordinary Mabel Dagmar is surprised to befriend her roommate, the beautiful, wild, blue-blooded Genevra Winslow. Ev invites Mabel to spend the summer at Bittersweet, her cottage on the Vermont estate where her family has been holding court for more than a century; it’s the kind of place where children twirl sparklers across the lawn during cocktail hour.

Mabel falls in love with midnight skinny-dipping, the wet dog smell that lingers near the yachts, and the moneyed laughter that carries across the still lake while fireworks burst overhead. Before she knows it, she has everything she’s ever wanted: friendship, a boyfriend, access to wealth, and, most of all, for the first time in her life, the sense that she belongs.

But as Mabel becomes an insider, a terrible discovery leads to shocking violence and reveals what the Winslows may have done to keep their power intact – and what they might do to anyone who threatens them. Mabel must choose: either expose the ugliness surrounding her and face expulsion from paradise, or keep the family’s dark secrets and make Ev’s world her own.
