International Giveaway! The House of Velvet and Glass by Katherine Howe

It seems that lately I've been seeing The House of Velvet and Glass by Katherine Howe everywhere I go, so I thought I'd spread the sightings and giveaway a brand new copy to one winner chosen at random. This giveaway will be apart of the Leap Into Books Giveaway Hop hosted by Kathy @ I am a Reader Not a Writer. To enter, just fill out the form below. Good luck!!!

Synopsis (From the Publisher):
"Katherine Howe, author of the phenomenal New York Times bestseller The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane, returns with an entrancing historical novel set in Boston in 1915, where a young woman stands on the cusp of a new century, torn between loss and love, driven to seek answers in the depths of a crystal ball. 
Still reeling from the deaths of her mother and sister on the Titanic, Sibyl Allston is living a life of quiet desperation with her taciturn father and scandal-plagued brother in an elegant town house in Boston’s Back Bay. Trapped in a world over which she has no control, Sibyl flees for solace to the parlor of a table-turning medium. 
But when her brother is suddenly kicked out of Harvard under mysterious circumstances and falls under the sway of a strange young woman, Sibyl turns for help to psychology professor Benton Derby, despite the unspoken tensions of their shared past. As Benton and Sibyl work together to solve a harrowing mystery, their long-simmering spark flares to life, and they realize that there may be something even more magical between them than a medium’s scrying glass.
From the opium dens of Boston’s Chinatown to the opulent salons of high society, from the back alleys of colonial Shanghai to the decks of the Titanic, The House of Velvet and Glass weaves together meticulous period detail, intoxicating romance, and a final shocking twist that will leave readers breathless."

What a great idea for lovers of the historical fiction genre. I also loved her previous book, since I live in New England (Cape Cod). Merci beaucoup!

Thanks for the giveaway!! I would love to leap into any book I win. Currently, I'm reading "He Kills Me, He Kills Me Not" by Lena Diaz and I love it! I also enjoy YA, NA, Paranormal fiction, thrillers and any romances with my favorite book of all-time being "Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon. Jamie Fraser is a stud!
