THE BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS Cover Reveal & Giveaway

Hey, friends.

So excited that my second post on Pub Hub gets to be the cover reveal for my upcoming release! THE BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS will hit shelves on April 28, 2015, and although ARCs aren't ready yet, I have to do something to mark the occasion. So, I'm going to send a signed copy of SLEEPING IN EDEN (my last release) and some book swag to one Pub Hub reader (US and Canada entries only, please). All you have to do is leave a comment below. Thanks so much for celebrating with me!

Hugs,
Nicole

About the Book:

From the author of Sleeping in Eden, described as “intense and absorbing from the very first page” (Heather Gudenkauf, author of The Weight of Silence), comes a gripping new novel about two former best friends and the secrets they can’t escape.

Adrienne Vogt and Harper Penny were closer than sisters, until the day a tragedy blew their seemingly idyllic world apart. Afraid that they got away with murder and unable to accept who they had lost—and what they had done—Harper and Adri exiled themselves from small-town Blackhawk, Iowa, and from each other. Adri ran thousands of miles away to Africa while Harper ventured down a more destructive path closer to home.

Now, five years later, both are convinced that nothing could ever coax them out of the worlds in which they’ve been living. But unexpected news from home soon pulls Adri and Harper back together, and the two cannot avoid facing their memories and guilt head-on. As they are drawn into the tangle of their fractured relationships and the mystery of Piperhall, the sprawling estate where their lives first began to unravel, secrets and lies behind the tragic accident are laid bare. The former best friends are forced to come to terms with their shared past and search for the beauty in each other while mending the brokenness in themselves.

Nicole Baart’s lush and lyrical writing has been called “sparkling” (Publishers Weekly), “taut and engrossing” (Booklist), and “evocative and beautiful” (Romantic Times). The Beautiful Daughters is another exquisitely rendered, haunting story that will stay with readers long after the last page.

  13. They say Good things come to those who believe, better things come to those who wait, and the best things come to those who don't give up! So, THE BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS is a good thing, a better one and the best of all at the same time because I believe in God's generosity related to your talent, I know to wait and I never give up! The cover is very inspired and suggestive. The fact that we can't see the two girls' faces give us the chance of finding them among our acquaintances, among our neighbors or even among some people on the street...It's a kind of game who helps us to make sure that such people - girls, boys, women and men - who populate the pages of your books are as real as possible! Congratulations! (Iordana Ferent, Romania)
