giveaway: the life o'reilly by brian cohen

Written by Darlyn At Friday, October 29, 2010

Hi everybody! Exciting news! Author Brian Cohen is gracious enough to offer a giveaway of a signed copy of The Life O'Reilly to a lucky reader of Darlyn & Books! Here's the excerpt of my review of the book;

The Life O’Reilly is a love story filled with drama and emotions. It is very well-written, compelling, beautifully told and left such a warm feeling at the end of the story which I really like. It gives me more than I what need rather than a light read because it serves everything for you to think about love, sadness, sharing, giving and most important of how to enjoy life that we have now. It some kind of a motivation for me. I was amazed reading the book, and still am. I think I have found another great author as good as Nicholas Sparks!
