The Book Giveaway Carnival is back and I’m super excited to participate in it! Yay, free books! For more contests and BGC participants, check out Book Room Reviews. I know I’ll be entering in a few; what about you?
For this carnival I’m giving away one hardback copy of Boca Knights by Steven M. Forman, released just last month. Comes with the jacket and everything, oooo.
Summary from Amazon:
In a debut novel sure to both excite passions and elicit laughter, a different kind of hero emerges in that most unlikely criminal hotbed: Boca Raton.
Eddie Perlmutter is capable of fighting with fearless frenzy, but only does so to defend the defenseless. Eddie’s career as a much-honored Boston cop has come to an end. At sixty, he’s still energetic and virile, but decades of harsh New England winters and collaring the pug-uglies of Boston’s underworld have taken their toll—especially on his knees. So what does a lonely, retired cop with arthritic knees do? Head to sunny Florida, of course.
Country-club politics and early-bird specials are a far cry from the street toughs, scuffles, and arrests of his former life. But some things never change. Instead of enjoying a relaxed, laid-back retirement, Eddie quickly discovers the darker side of Boca Raton’s endless sun and palm trees, where hate crimes, counterfeiting, and worse lurk beneath the deceptively calm surface of cushy retirement communities.
With his no-nonsense crime-fighting skills and roll-with-the punches attitude, Eddie hits Boca Raton like of a Nor’easter from Hell, fast, fresh, and unstoppable.

Okay! To be entered to win simply comment on this post. Since it’s a hardback I’m only going to send it to residents of the US/Canada. I’ll use random.org to determine the winner. The contest ends Saturday, March 7 at midnight (EST). The winner will be announced on Sunday, March 8. Be sure to leave me your email address. If I can’t contact you I’ll have to disqualify your entry! And that’s sad for everyone, believe me.
