BREAKING THE BANK by Yona Zeldis McDonough GIVEAWAY!!!

Posted 3 October, 2009 by Molly(Cover To Cover Cafe) in Book Reviews / 25 Comments

Thanks to Sarah at Simon and Schuster/Pocket Books I have TWO copies of BREAKING THE BANK to giveaway to TWO lucky winners!!!!!

                                                    ABOUT THE BOOK: 
Mia Saul is down on her luck. Dumped by her husband, jettisoned from her job, and estranged from her adored older brother, she and her young daughter, Eden, have had to make a downscale move to a crummy apartment, where their neighbors include a tough young drug dealer and a widower who lets his dogs use the hallways as their own personal litter box. Juggling a series of temporary jobs, wrangling with her ex-husband over child support, and trying to keep pace with Eden’s increasingly erratic behavior have left Mia weary and worn out.

So when a seemingly functional ATM starts handing Mia thousands and thousands of dollars — and not deducting the money from her account, because it sure isn’t in there — she isn’t about to give it back. Her newfound cash stash opens up a world of opportunity, and a whole lot of trouble. Worried friends, family, and in-laws start questioning her judgment about everything, and the cops really, really want to know where all that cash is coming from. And then there’s Patrick, a man Mia most definitely would never have met if things hadn’t spun out of control. Mia is beginning to think that maybe somebody, somewhere, is trying to teach her a lesson about what matters in life, and what doesn’t….

    This book sounds really good! Although I’d love to have an unlimited supply of money, if you don’t have friends and family, you would still be unhappy!

    I can relate about not having money especially now that I am separated from my ex so I would love to read this book! I wish I would have an endless supply too!

    This looks like such a fun premise–who doesn’t sometimes wonder if more money is going to come flying out of the ATM! I know there’s going to be a lesson in there somewhere!

    I’m interested in how Mia would end up with those misfortunes and her unexpected big fortune. Please enter me for this giveaway contest. 😀

    I’d really like to read this to see how it all ends. I had an ATM give me extra money one time, but I took it into the bank and gave it back. Of course, it didn’t have a message with it. milou2ster(at)

    if an ATM gave me extra money… I’d buy a pair of pointe shoes, a ton of books, and put the rest in the bank. i’d probably end up spending most of it on books, though 😀

    If the ATM gave me extra money, I would probably go into the bank and give it back. I would be too scared they’d catch me and make me pay it back, if I spent the money.

    I forgot to comment (sorry)…If the ATM gave me more money, I would probably go to the bank and let them know…what a great premise for a book…

    I bet “Breaking The Bank” is so much fun. I would love to read and review it. If the ATM gave out a bunch of money, I would scream, scream, cry, and roll my body in the money.

    it back to them, they say honesty is the best
