    Looks like it’s a battle between the Melissas so far, Sarah. I can’t wait to read your novel! Happy Mother’s Day. Saw your photo/interview with iVillage. Wonderful (and don’t know how you do it with three small boys)!

    I loved Violets of March so much! And I just gave my copy to my mom, so now I need another so I can read it again. Happy Mother’s Day to you, Sarah.

    It’s so exciting to find a new author! Thank you GoodReads! Yes, the cover of the book really grabbed me, but after reading the reviews on Amazon, I know I can’t wait to step inside the covers and wrap them around me! Hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day, Sarah!

    Would love a copy. The Costco (near Tampa FL) I happened to visit yesterday did not have your book, and I was so disappointed! I looked and looked to make sure I wasn’t missing it, but it definitely was not there. I hope to win, but I’ll also keep looking.

    Sarah! I’m too excited for you. If that was me and my book was next to the Pulitzer winner, I’d be framing the photo for my dining room. Or possibly to shop around as a billboard. Congratulations! Can’t wait to read.

    I loved it and I gifted one to my sister and she is in the middle of reading it.

    Loved it so much that I want a sequel and a movie! πŸ™‚ That’s how amazing this book is and the written style was outstanding. The characters you fall in love with and the twists and turns. The mystery and suspense. Love story! Beautifully written!

    I’ve recommended it to all of my friends.

    Best of luck with this one and can’t wait for The Bungalow and #3. You have a fan forever!

    My fiance and I usually end up reading the same books together, although we are far apart. It is just another way that we keep each other close, and our way of trying to bridge the distance and feel closer. So far we’ve read “The Forty Rules of Love” by Elif Shafak, “The Pact” by Jodi Picoult and now I plan on reading “The Violets of March” with him. If I win, I’m going to make sure to pick up the other copy and send it to him. I’m SO looking forward to reading this book! πŸ˜€
