Summer Giveaway #10: The Actor and the Housewife by Shannon Hale (US only)

I picked up The Actor and the Housewife last year because it's by one of my favorite authors, Shannon Hale, and even though it's not her usual fare of groundbreaking YA fantasy, this adult fiction romantic comedy quickly rocketed up to its current position as one of my favorite books of all time. It's the book I go back to whenever I'm feeling lonely or...schlumpy (? is that a word? oh well, I'm making it one now). I have an extra copy of this book and so I'm totally sharing the love with you guys!


Mormon housewife Becky Jack is seven months pregnant with her fourth child when she meets celebrity heartthrob Felix Callahan. Twelve hours, one elevator ride, and one alcohol-free dinner later, something has happened…though nothing has happened. It isn’t sexual. It isn’t even quite love. But a month later Felix shows up in Salt Lake City to visit and before they know what’s hit them, Felix and Becky are best friends. Really. Becky’s husband is pretty cool about it. Her children roll their eyes. Her neighbors gossip endlessly. But Felix and Becky have something special…something unusual, something completely impossible to sustain. Or is it? A magical story, The Actor and the Housewife explores what could happen when your not-so-secret celebrity crush walks right into real life and changes everything.

You can see my review of this book here.
