Leap Into Books Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Leap Into Books Giveaway Hop hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A WriterJinky is Reading.

I am giving away a copy of Diary Of A Beverly Hills Matchmaker by Marla Martenson. I just started reading this book but have enjoyed the first couple of chapters. I will have a full review of it when I’m done reading it :)

Here’s some information about the book, taken from Amazon.com: “In Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker, Marla takes her readers for a hilarious romp through her days as an L.A. matchmaker and her daily struggles to keep her self-esteem from imploding in a town where looks are everything and money talks. From juggling the demands her out-of-touch clients to trying her best to meet the capricious demands of an insensitive boss to the ups and downs of her own marriage to a Latin husband who doesn’t think that she is ‘domestic’ enough, Marla writes with charm and self-effacement about the universal struggles that all women face in their lives. Readers will laugh, cringe, and cry as they journey with her through outrageous stories about the indignities of dating in Los Angeles, dealing with overblown egos, vicariously hobnobbing with celebrities, and navigating the wannabe-land of Beverly Hills. In a city where perfection is almost a prerequisite, even Marla can’t help but run for the Botox every once in a while.”
