The Golden Apple

Meet Poppy Parker, a recent widow who knows she must move forward but has no idea which direction to take. To start fresh, Poppy moves from her idyllic home in Georgia to the grimy glamour of New York City to open up her own boutique and find a way to live and love without her husband.

Austin Bandy has been in love with Poppy since the moment he laid eyes on her years ago, right before her wedding. Now she is back, grieving and broken hearted by her nearly-perfect husband’s death—not Austin’s ideal romantic situation. He needs to wait for her to recover but not so long that someone else has the chance to move in and sweep his dream girl off her feet and keep him as a “good friend” forever.

Poignant, hopeful and fresh, Faerl Marie’s enchanting debut novel will have you hooked and ready to pursue your own hopes and dreams the moment you turn the final page. The Golden Apple is a charming and fashionable novel about loss, love and moving on without betraying your self, your past or those you love.

  5. Books and book related things! Bookmarks, pens, calendars notebooks and such :D

  6. I absolutely LOVE the sound of this book! If I was opening up a boutique in New York I would sell one of two things - either it would be a quaint little book store with a warm and cozy cafe incorporated or I would sell beautiful clothes - preferably the quirky kind!

  7. I'd open up a dress boutique. Preferably, prom or ball gowns. I never got to go to the prom in high school, but I love helping my step daughter shop for her dresses.

  8. I would definitely open something to do with Health. And maybe books. And maybe just having a gym set up for reading while eating cupcakes. YUMMMM!

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

  9. I would want to open a dog boutique selling cute things i.e. collars, leash, coats, etc. for your precious pet. I would have dog bakery too. Also an area to sit and enjoy a coffee and scone while your pet is enjoying their dog bakery. Of course the tables would be adorable with a dog motif .
    Thanks for the giveaway

  10. I would like to to open a craft sore and see all sorts of things. I can sell supplies for making fancy bookmarks.

  11. I would open a store with books and flowers :) Two of my greatest loves!

  12. It would have to be a craft store. I love to knit & crochet etc. What fun that would be.


  13. it would be a cafe bookstore where we could enjoy reading our book while eating or even hang out with our friends

  14. I would love to open a clothing store featuring local designers and showcasing their work.

  15. I think I would try to combine 2 of my favorite things: books and microbrews! I'd love to have a small craft brewery with a library theme.

  16. I would love to sell scarfs and shawls! You know, the ones that come from the Middle East. Art lovers will definitely enjoy them!


  17. This sounds like a great novel. I would sell subs and sandwiches! It has always been my dream. I used to work at Subway and I loved interacting with the customers. I made great subs, but I would rather use fresh, local produce and meats if I had my own shop. ;)
