Our first contest!  I recently had the pleasure of attending a fun book signing event with Kimberly Derting, debut author of the suspenseful romantic thriller The Body Finder!  If you have not read this book yet, I would recommend adding it to your "Must Read" list immediately.

The Body Finder summary:

Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend since childhood, she is more disturbed by her "power" to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world . . . and the imprints that attach to their killers.
Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find dead birds her cat left for her. But now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.
Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved by her hope that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she's falling intensely in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer . . . and becoming his prey herself.
You can read my full review of The Body Finder HERE and check out my event report HERE.  I purchased an extra copy of The Body Finder before the signing so that I would have a signed copy to give away here on The Eager Readers, and Kimberly was sweet enough to share some extra goodies - like beautiful signed bookmarks, lovely stickers, a signed poster, and a few bracelets.  That means three winners will end up with some fabulous signed goodies!  This is our first contest here on The Eager Readers, so I am very excited about it!  Eventually I hope to make some of our contests international, but I am afraid this first giveaway is going to be limited to US residents only.  So sorry to my international friends!

Contest Details:

There will be three winners:
First prize = a signed, hardback copy of The Body Finder + a signed bookmark + a sticker + a bracelet
Second prize = a signed The Body Finder poster + a signed bookmark + a sticker + a bracelet
Third prize = a signed bookmark + a sticker
