Spring Fever Giveaway

Meet Mary Kay

Meet Mary Kay’s new book- Spring Fever

I’m on chapter 7, but I was hooked by page 2!

Without giving too much away, it’s about a woman named Annajane Hudgens and it’s set in a small, sleepy, Southern town called Passcoe, North Carolina- a place “where old flames and deep secrets reside, and the past is never really gone.” Annajane truly believes she’s over her ex-husband, but while attending his wedding to his too-perfect, new fiancee, Celia, fate intervenes, and she starts to think maybe she’s been given a second chance…and maybe, just maybe, she wants Mason back.

Can I get a collective, “ooooooooh!“?

Spring Fever comes out June 5th (how sweet of Mary Kay to plan the release date for my birthday? *hee hee*), but we’re going to select one lucky Lettered Cottage reader to win a free copy, courtesy of MKA herself!

In addition to the book, the winner will receive some Spring Fever promotional goodies, too. How cute is the packet of zinnia seeds?

To enter for a chance to win, just leave one comment on this post, and we’ll randomly select a winner on Monday (May 21st) and 8:00am (CST).

I also wanted to mention that you can find Mary Kay’s book tour dates HERE. Her signings are such a treat, and I’m looking forward to attending this one:

Tuesday, June 19th | 5:00 PM
Talk, Reading, Q&A, Signing
2626 19th Place South
Homewood, Alabama

Good luck and hope to see some fellow Alabamians in Homewood next month!

Pssst! Wanna check out Mary Kay’s beach house, Breeze Inn? We posted pics of it HERE!

    Thanks Layla!

  47. booklover says

    About three weeks ago, I discovered Mary Kay Andrews. After reading so many dark contemporary novels, her books were like a breath of fresh air. Thus began the reading marathon: I took two weeks and read every one of her novels, except one which I listened to on audiobook (while reading another at home). It felt like a vacation without leaving home! I’m thrilled to see that she’s released a new novel!

  48. Amy Conley says

    I LOVE MKA! I’ve read all her books but one so far and laugh til I cry ot cry til I laugh during all of them! Isn’t she the greatest? She is in my opinion. Also, as far as Southern Women’s humor goes, she IS the very best!!


  49. TLGITW says

    I love Mary Kay Andrews books (as well as reading about her junk finds on her blog) so winning this would make me VERY happy!

  50. Lisa says

    Hi Layla! I wish you could come to DC and makeover my bathroom door. You are a genius! xo

  51. Ann Crawford says

    I have read all of Mary Kay Andrews books, given her books as gifts, let others borrow mine (and, of course, make sure they are returned), and told lots of people about her books. I’m looking so forward to June 5 when Spring Fever is released. Thank you Mary Kay for giving me many hours of reading enjoyment!!

  52. Hanna says

    I’d love to win! Sounds like a great read. Always looking for something new. Thanks!

  53. Elizabeth Jeude Simpson says

    This San Francisco Bay Area, California Girl loves all things Southern! Especially Mary Kay Andrews. I would love to have a copy here in California to bring on the nostalgia for the Southern life that I miss!

  54. Sarah O. says

    I LOVE Mary Kay Andrews books and I can’t wait to read this newest one. I just got back from my honeymoon and I read two of her books while I was away. It was heaven!

  65. Rebecca says

    I am so excited about this giveaway. I found your website a couple of months ago and am totally hooked. I just love all the renovations you have done/are doing to your home. You supply some wonderful inspiration. Because of one of your earlier posts about Mary Kay, I decided to give one of her books a try. I read “The Fixer-Upper” about a month ago and absolutely loved it. It was can’t-put-in-down exciting!! I can’t wait to read some more of her books, but I have to get through some others that I have bought first. I am still a “real” book reader; I haven’t transitioned to an e-reader…yet. So, to justify buying any new books, like some more by Mary Kay, I have to get through my exsisting stack. Thank you for the chance to get into your giveaway. Can’t wait to see more of your up-coming posts. (I also absolutely love your posts concerning your pets. You and Kevin take some a-mazing photos of them.)

  66. Penny @ The Comforts of Home & Flea Market Makeovers says

    I am so excited to know that Mary Kay has a new book coming out. The first book I read by MKA was Itty Bitty Lies and I was hooked. I purchased each one of her books after that and have loved each one. I have to say that Itty Bitty Lies and Deep Dish are two of my favorites. I can remember both of them without having to open the book! I have to say that I was first attracted to MKA’s books because of the cover on Itty Bitty Lies! The brightly colored, animated cover caught my eye and I’ve been a fan ever since. Well, I guess I will end by saying, I”m thrilled to know that Spring Fever will be out soon.
