Pandora’s Bottle by Joanne Sydney Lessner
On sale for $2.99 on Kindle and Nook from now until August 22. Save $5. Read the Awesome Indies review here.
Named one of the top five books of 2010 by Paperback Dolls, Pandora’s Bottle is based on the true story of the world’s most expensive bottle of wine.
Lonely, middle-aged financier Sy Hampton is obsessed with a legendary bottle of 1787 Château Lafite once owned by Thomas Jefferson, which, through a quirk of preservation, may yet be drinkable. After spending half a million dollars on it at auction, he disappoints the wine community by choosing to uncork it privately with a female companion, rather than at a special public event. But this decision has drastic consequences—not only for Sy and his date, but also for a determined waiter on the verge of his long-awaited Broadway debut and an ambitious restaurateur who can’t resist an opportunity for much-needed publicity. Their competing agendas are not the only things to collide on that fateful night.
Lessner has served up a bubbly, big-haired and big-hearted opus magnum, redolent of the vanities of New York, with a whiff of Wodehouse and a dash of Dickens, full of raucous overtones but with a gentle finish. Drinkable immediately!
–Jonathan Levi, Author of A Guide for the Perplexed and Co-Founder of Granta
Joanne Sydney Lessner has carefully crafted a well-wrought, fun, and fast-paced book detailing the highs and lows of the wine world. A great read.

A Hole in the Pavement by Tahlia Newland
FREE from the 16th to the 20th on Kindle
Every morning, Norris watches his goddess walk to the bus stop in front of him, the gap between them far wider than the physical distance. This morning, she stumbles. He wants to help her, but finds himself stuck in a hole that appeared along with his self doubt. Can he find his heroic self before she walks away?
“A Hole in the Pavement” is so sweetly romantic with a magical realism that readers can actually identify with, for no matter how “superhuman” the characters’ experiences might be, it’s really a tale of the very human vulnerabilities within–and interactions between–us all. Definitely one of my favorite stories in Newland’s A Matter of Perception anthology. – Fallen Monkey, editor and book blogger.
