Loving Rizzoli & Isles so much you want to read the books like, say – NOW? We can help you out with that. Follow us. (Just pretend! Flex those imagination muscles.)

We’ve been talking about Rizzoli & Isles for a while now here on the good ol’ Small Screen Scoop TV source (If we pat at the blog it wouldn’t have any rusted parts fall off! Success!) The series premiere has finally happened, so to celebrate we have a giveaway. In true R&I style, it’s a book by the author of the creator of these characters. We bet both Jane and Maura love to read a good book. You know… when they’re not busy solving murders.

Keep up on all of our Rizzoli & Isles News (including advance episode reviews, spoilers, cast interviews etc.)

GIVEAWAY PRIZE: One (1) winner(s) will receive their very own copy of the critically acclaimed (and it’s some serious critical acclaim, people!) novel THE APPRENTICE by Tess Gerritsen.  This is a RIZZOLI & ISLES novel. Check out the books’ review on Amazon – people LOVE it. Prizing courtesy of Turner Network Entertainment (TNT.) Giveaway ends on August 1, 2010.
