Giveaway TO DIE FOR by Sandra Byrd

To Die for by Sandra Byrd
"What would you sacrifice for your best friend? Would you die for her?

Meg Wyatt has been Anne Boleyn's closest friend ever since they grew up together on neighboring manors in Kent. So when twenty-five-year-old Anne's star begins to ascend, of course she takes Meg along for the ride.

Life in the court of Henry VIII is first. Meg is made mistress of Anne's wardrobe, and she enjoys the spoils of this privileged orbit and uses her influence for good. She is young and beautiful and in favor; everyone at court assumes that being close to her is being close to Anne.

But favor is fickle and envy is often laced with venom. As Anne falls, so does Meg, and it becomes nearly impossible for her to discern ally from enemy. Suddenly life's unwelcome surprises rub against court's sheen to reveal the tarnished brass of false affections and the bona fide gold of those are true. Both Anne and Meg may lose everything. When your best friend is married to fearsome Henry VIII, you may soon find yourself not only friendless but headless as well.

A rich alchemy of fact and fiction, To Die For chronicles the glittering court life, the sweeping romance, and the heartbreaking fall from grace of a forsaken queen and Meg, her closest companion, who was forgotten by the ages but who is destined to live on in our hearts forever"

To Die For: A Novel of Anne Boleyn
Piece de Resistance: A Novel


  1. An interesting angle on Anne's story. Looking forward to reading this one - thanks for the giveaway!

  2. Gwendolyn, it sounds like a unique perspective on Anne and let me tell you I will not even go near Anne anymore unless it is a unique perspective. Good luck on the draw!

  3. The book sounds intriguing but the cover art is so wrong in the bodices that it turns me away from considering reading it. No busts were accommodated in the fabric lines. There would be a bone or wooden busk down the front flattening everything. And the dress's shoulders and sleeves on the right are of an older style, something a Court lady wouldn't be caught dead wearing due to it being unfashionable. The English style was square necklines.

  4. Funny Bakayaro because I am the extreme opposite. I think it is to die for beautiful lol. Both of the dresses are of a very high quality for a book cover and trust me I have seen way worse. Not all of us book lovers are sticklers for complete accuracy including the dresses on the cover. Thank you for the lesson in in Tudor dresses but I think I will stick with what I like and this is what I like.
