Spotlight and Giveaway: All We Ever Wanted

We're excited to feature Emily Giffin's latest novel, All We Ever Wanted, which publishes today. Thanks to Random House, we have THREE copies to give away!

Check out Melissa A's review.

Nina Browning is living the good life after marrying into Nashville’s elite. More recently, her husband made a fortune selling his tech business, and their adored son has been accepted to Princeton.

Yet sometimes the middle-class small-town girl in Nina wonders if she’s strayed from the person she once was.

Tom Volpe is a single dad working multiple jobs while struggling to raise his headstrong daughter, Lyla. His road has been lonely, long, and hard, but he finally starts to relax after Lyla earns a scholarship to Windsor Academy, Nashville’s most prestigious private school.

Amid so much wealth and privilege, Lyla doesn’t always fit in—and her overprotective father doesn’t help—but in most ways, she’s a typical teenage girl, happy and thriving.

Then, one photograph, snapped in a drunken moment at a party, changes everything. As the image spreads like wildfire, the Windsor community is instantly polarized, buzzing with controversy and assigning blame.

At the heart of the lies and scandal, Tom, Nina, and Lyla are forced together—all questioning their closest relationships, asking themselves who they really are, and searching for the courage to live a life of true meaning. (Synopsis courtesy of Amazon.)

I have never been to Nashville. I honestly don't know what I would do first if I did get the chance to go. The only thing I know about the city is it's known for country music. I guess the first thing I would do would have something to do with music.

Looks like another winner from Emily Giffin! I love Nashville! It's a hidden "secret." One of the best cities in America!

I have never visited Nashville. I would love to visit many of the music venues.

I have been a few times. Beautiful skyline, vibrant city.

I’ve never been to Nashville specifically, but I do love the Tennessee mountains. If I had the opportunity to visit Nashville I guess I’d have to check out The Country Music Hall of Fame or the Grand Ole Opry.

I have been once, four years ago, for my first Yelp Spring Break :) very fun city. I am going again in Sept. too but only for one night - my boyfriend's cousin lives in Knoxville, so we are driving there (~ 8 hours) to spend 3 days and then will drive to Nashville for 1 day.

Dianne Casey said...

I love Nashville. I've been there quite a few times. I love the feel of the city and all the country western bars and the music scene.

John Smith said...

I have not been to Nashville. I went to college with a guy from Nashville who went to some fancy school there, and he was annoyed that people look at it as this country-music Mecca. I like some country music, more modern stuff that could just as well be played together with the "alt rock" that I like. But if I were to visit I'd probably look for what I'd look for anywhere--nice restaurants and art museums!

Linda Kish said...

I have never been to Nashville before. If I had the chance to go there, I would want to enjoy the great BBQ food and country music.

Mary Preston said...

I'm not sure what I'd visit first in Nashville.

Lesley McIntosh said...

I have never been to Nashville but I know people from New Zealand do go especially for the country music so I guess I would visit the The Country Music Hall of Fame or the Grand Ole Opry.

I have never been to Nashville, but I have always wanted to go! I would try and time my trip so I could go to a Nashville Predators game against the Colorado Avalanche (my two favorite hockey teams!). I would also want to go to the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame!

I've been to Nashville twice... its one of my favorite spots to visit time after time.
All the honky tonks up and down Broadway. The food is outstanding and the people are great!
