Cover Reveal: Lies and Other Acts of Love by Kristy Woodson Harvey (with a Giveaway!!!)

I am so excited to be part of the big cover reveal today of Kristy Woodsen Harvey's second book, Lies and Other Acts of Love, due out April 4, 2016. I absolutely loved her debut novel, Dear Carolina, and am looking forward to reading this new book.

Here's what's already being said about this book:

“We loved everything about LIES AND OTHER ACTS OF LOVE. From the strong plot about the many facets of love told from the alternating points of view of Annabelle and her grandmother, Lovey, to the equally strong cast of richly drawn southern characters, Kristy Woodson Harvey crafted a story so perfectly detailed that we could imagine ourselves on a wrap around porch in the south with a tall glass of sweet tea. LIES AND OTHER ACTS OF LOVE will grab you by the heart strings and pull hard. A perfect story about the lies we tell and the secrets we keep-- all in the name of love.” – Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, authors of The Status of All Things and Your Perfect Life 

“LIES AND OTHER ACTS OF LOVE by Kristy Woodson Harvey is a richly detailed, intergenerational tale of love, loss and loyalty. Harvey pulls the reader into the hearts and souls of her characters.” -- Heather Gudenkauf ~ New York Times bestselling author of The Weight of Silence

So, are you ready to see the cover? 

And here's the synopsis of the book:

Dear Carolina was praised as “Southern fiction at its best.”* Now author Kristy Woodson Harvey presents a new novel about what it really means to tell the truth . . .
After sixty years of marriage and five daughters, Lynn “Lovey” White knows that all of us, from time to time, need to use our little white lies.

Her granddaughter, Annabelle, on the other hand, is as truthful as they come. She always does the right thing—that is, until she dumps her hedge fund manager fiancĂ© and marries a musician she has known for three days. After all, her grandparents, who fell in love at first sight, have shared a lifetime of happiness, even through her grandfather’s declining health.

But when Annabelle’s world starts to collapse around her, she discovers that nothing about her picture-perfect family is as it seems. And Lovey has to decide whether one more lie will make or break the ones she loves . . .
