5 copy giveaway of Jane Harper’s new crime novel “Force of Nature”

28th January 2018

Jane Harper's new crime novel "Force of Nature"It is only a year since Jane Harper’s first crime novel The Dry was published in the UK to instant acclaim…. a bestseller, winning the CWA Gold Dagger in addition to the awards Harper had already won in Australia. For her second novel, Force of Nature, she has returned to the severe, unforgiving territory of the bush – and it is even more impressive than The Dry” says Joan Smith, of The Sunday Times.

Force of Nature, Jane’s second novel, is set in a fictional nature reserve outside Melbourne. A corporate bonding experience goes horribly wrong and at the end of the trek, Alice Russell is missing…

    Not heard of this author before so will have to get The Dry after reading the great reviews. Would be great to have Force of Nature to read straight after.

    The Dry was a boomerang book – I just had to keep going back to it! Can’t wait to be whipped back to the Australian outback with Force of Nature.

    I loved “The Dry” one of the best novels I read last year. I talked to the guy in the bookshop asking if he’d read it last summer and haven’t stopped mentioning it since. Never was a novel better named – I want to visit Australia now and here we have the latest novel from Jane Harper – I’m excited!

    I’m having a bit of a crime fiction binge at the moment – recently all the books I’ve read seem to have been set in British cities so I’m ready for a change of scenery, to somewhere I’m completely unfamiliar with.

    Read The Dry in Australia last year. Going back in September so would like to read in UK in case a number 3 is out in Australia.

      I’ve just finished The Dry and loved the Australian setting – I backpacked there twenty-odd years ago on a climbing holiday and it brought back so many memories. Love the premise of her new book

    I would love to win a copy as I’ve never read this author before, but this one sounds like it has a fabulous setting, and I do like a good location!

    I used to watch all the Ozzie soaps and recently discovered Deep Waters which was a mini series based on true events and very gory.
    The only book I remember reading was A Town Like Alice that years later reminded me of the soap The Sullivans which also was set in that period.
    I must look out for The Dry but hope to win your prize as it sounds good.

    This comp has made reading The Dry shoot right up my TBR pile. It would be fantastic to follow it with Force of Nature too!

    Will be in Melbourne mid March – would be great to read about the places to avoid….. just joking of course. Yes we will be in Melbourne then but I’m sure we won’t be involved in any criminality.

    I’m squeaking into this with six minutes to spare! The Dry was one of my favourite books of last year – this writer is truly A Force of Nature!

    I loved The Dry and am looking forward to seeing what happens to Falk next.

    Despite being set in a climate of blistering heat, The Dry chilled me to the bone. Can’t wait to hear more from the complex character that is Aaron Falk. Jane Harper’s writing is exceptional.

    The Dry – despite being set in blistering heat – was one of the most chilling things I’ve read. Looking forward to hearing more the complex character that is Aaron Falk.

    I loved The Dry, my favourite book of 2017.
    Force of Nature looks equally gripping.

    I have a blogger friend who recently posted a very good review of this book. Although I don’t usually read crime fiction, I should be willing to step outside my comfort zone from time to time!


  36. User: Sue Dawson

    Love books set in the Australian outback but have never read a crime novel set there so would love a copy.

    Posted on: 28/01/2018 at 8:06 pm

    I read books on my kindle, which I love but sometimes just the feel of a book brings you closer to the story. It is just more personal and intimate. The cover of this book looks intriguing. The richness of the crop that has taken a season to grow and yet it can be taken away, with the force of nature that is loaming in the threating sky, in the blink of an eye. The Force of Nature, a perfect title. I wonder if the perfection continues inside……..


  38. User: Ellie Lane

    Posted on: 28/01/2018 at 7:45 pm

    I’ve read crime fiction from all round the world, but I don’t think I’ve read one set in Australia yet.

    I loved The Dry and have to read Force of Nature. I need more Aaron Falk in my life

    I found The Dry a compelling read. You could almost feel the heat of the Australian Summer coming off the pages. Would love to read Force of Nature.

    The Dry was an amazing accomplishment, and impressively so considering it is a debut novel. Fabulous story, told well. Force of Nature sounds like it’s going to be another amazing read. Yes please!


  44. User: Melanie Daniels

    Posted on: 28/01/2018 at 6:25 pm

    I’d love to read this as I enjoy crime novels and I heard good things about her other novel, The Dry.

    We recently met up with a distant cousin who lives in Australia. Subsequently two of my nephews have found work there and are to be married to Australians. My sister and my niece will be visiting this although I can’t be away for long so won’t be going myself. However I would love to read a good Australian novel!
