    Re: Is this correct?

    I think I would say, "I will be sending you a book or I will be sending a book to you." But not ...sending to you a book or .....sending to a book you. I think it has to do something with the verb " send" and the direct object (book) and indirect object (you). Sorry, I can't help more than this.
    Good luck

    Tiddy's right- if you put the direct object imediately after the verb, don't use 'to'.
