Friday giveaway winners revealed!

friday giveAn enormous thank you to everyone who entered our Friday Giveaway competition! 

We had a fantastic line up and your entries were brilliant, making it incredibly hard to pick the winners, but we eventually narrowed it down to…

A Foreign Country goes to Jake Eliot, who said:

I’d love to get my hands on a copy of Charles Cumming’s latest, A Foreign Country. I enjoyed watching Skyfall at the cinema, but it’s high time Bond’s flashy suits and big explosions cleared the way for proper suspense, taut dialogue and authentic spycraft. And by the sound of it, I reckon following Tom Kell tracing the disappearance of the first female head of MI6 across Europe and Africa will help me put the stresses of my working week into perspective.

Cold Killing goes to Ali Thorpe, who said:

I would like to win Cold Killing by Luke Delaney because …

I love to read a good murder;
Curled up in my comfy old chair.
And Cold Killing sounds like a good’un
To read all alone …if I dare!

The Lost Boy goes to Dionne Cunningham, who said:

Please, please, please, I am desperate to find out if it was Erica and her sister in the car! Brilliant cliffhanger.

Close to the Bone goes to Kenny Baird, who said:

I’m after Stuart McBride’s latest, please. Basically because I’m sat bored in my taxi all day and need a good read and Logan’s adventures pass the time, although Ms Steel and her never ending fight with her undergarments is right up there in the comedy stakes!

The Cutting Room goes to Louise Lumsden, who said:

The Cutting Room by Jilliane Hoffman, please. I’ve read a small sample of it and I’m dying to know what happens next. It really is my kind of read, darkly twisted & dangerous, the kind of book that scares the heck out of you & makes you think, ‘yikes glad it’s not happening to me’, but you just have to keep on turning those pages and find out what comes next.

The Scent of Death goes to Claira Lloyd:

I would love The Scent of Death as I do love a gooooood crime read, AND of course, I’ll review it on my blog….it’s a secret who I blog as but I’ll tell ya when I’ve reviewed on twitter of course 🙂
