Freedom Hop Giveaway, 1st-7th July

My book, Alison Wonderland, will be published on 16th August. I had such a fantastic response to the last giveaway that I'm doing another: I have a signed advance copy of the book to give away in the Freedom Hop giveaway, 1st-7th July:
After her husband leaves her for another woman, twentysomething Londoner Alison Temple impulsively applies for a job at the very P.I. firm she hired to trap her philandering ex. She hopes it will be the change of scene she so desperately needs to move on with her shattered life. At the all-female Fitzgerald’s Bureau of Investigation, she spends her days tracking lost objects and her nights shadowing unfaithful husbands. But no matter what the case, none of her clients can compare to the fascinating characters in her personal life. There’s her boss, the estimable and tidy Mrs. Fitzgerald; Taron, Alison’s eccentric best friend, who claims her mother is a witch; Jeff, her love-struck, poetry-writing neighbour; and—last but not least—her psychic postman. Her relationships with them all become entangled when she joins Taron for a road trip to the seaside and stumbles into a misadventure of epic proportions! Clever, quirky, and infused with just a hint of magic, this humorous literary novel introduces a memorable heroine struggling with the everyday complexities of modern life.

"Only occasionally does a piece of fiction leap out and demand immediate cult status. Alison Wonderland is one... Smith is at the very least a minor phenomenon." The Times

Thanks for your generosity, and for participating in this amazing blog hop.

What a delightful coincidence, Helen. I just finished reading your book "Three Sisters" and absolutely adored it. I would LOVE for a chance to read/win "Alison Wonderland" now.
