GIVEAWAY: The Bookman's Tale by Charlie Lovett

Guess what comes out in paperback on May 27th, 2014?  Charlie Lovett's fantastic novel, The Bookman's Tale.   A story about books, forgeries, and love with a dollop of mystery thrown in, this is one unputdownable read. 

Here's a brief summary of the book:
"In a dusty bookshop in Hay-on-Wye, Wales, Peter Byerly, a widowed American antiquarian bookseller, stumbles across a miniature portrait of his dead wife—but his wife died in 1994 and the portrait is clearly Victorian. When he tries to learn more about the watercolor, Peter is swept up in a web of mystery and intrigue and uncovers what could be the most important (and valuable) artifact in the history of English literature—a book that appears to have marginalia written by William Shakespeare positively proving the identity of the great playwright. But Peter is not the only person interested in the watercolor and the book. Framed for murder and with the killers on his trail, he is desperate to find out if the book is genuine or a forgery. Along the way, the reader is transported back to London in the late sixteenth century and the English countryside in the 1870s, finally discovering not only the truth about the lost book, but also about Peter’s own past and that of his beloved Amanda who died so young."

Sounds amazing, doesn't it!  If you want to read my thoughts on it, then check out my review here
