What’s in a book cover when it features a swimming pool?
GIVEAWAY – 3 copies of Curtain Call at the Seaview Hotel – SCARBOROUGH
31st July 2022
We are delighted to join forces with author Glenda Young and offer you 3 copies of Curtain Call at the Seaview Hotel, set in Scarborough.
Curtain Call at the Seaview Hotel is a fun, cosy crime / murder mystery set in Scarborough and published by Headline. It stars an acting troupe who arrive at Helen Dexter’s Seaview Hotel to rehearse a play they hope will save a much-loved local theatre. There’s a lot riding on this play. However, the leading lady is a diva, the playwright is highly strung and tension in the troupe is high. When one of the actors is found dead on the beach, landlady Helen Dexter and her rescue greyhound Suki set out to solve the crime. But just when Helen thinks things can’t get any worse after one of her guests is murdered, the hotel inspector arrives!

Pennan in Scotland, beautiful
I have a soft spot for Swanage in Dorset.
Stonehaven, near Aberdeen
Has to be Hastings for me. Love their castle, the caves, their little streets and their crazy golf.
Lots of idyllic places in Cornwall – Falmouth, St Ives, Marazion to name a few but also lots of lovely resorts on the North East Coast, Filey, Scarborough, Bridlington & Whitby
Whitstable is great!
Cleverleys near Blackpool. Had some good times there.

Love staying in Scarborough! Best seaside fish and chips in the country!
Whitby with its Abbey overlooking it.
Skegness. It was my childhood seaside go to place
As a child it was always Skegness but now as an OAP I prefer the peace, quiet and the amazing miles of sands around Burry Port in South Wales. 600 miles round journey there as opposed to 40 for Skeggy but so worth it.
Tynemouth. It’s near to home and has a beautiful beach, historic priory and the occasional surfer!
Three cliffs bay, mumbles South Wales spectacular beach
We absolutely love Beadnell! We’re lucky enough to live not far from Northumberland’s stunning coastline and have had many family cottage holidays there. The kids when younger loved it (rockpooling, jumping off the pier at the harbour, using a line to catch crabs off the harbour too!) kids in their teens now but we all still love going
Scarborough – used to holiday there every year as a child. Very exciting that the book is set there.
cleethorpes. i live right near it
For me it is Falmouth, love the arty feel to this town. Very fond memories with the boys when they were young.
Has to be Scarborough the first and best seaside resort in the UK
I love Wells Next The Sea in North Norfolk
As I live in Scarborough where this mystery is set it has to be my home town!
Arbroath – lived there a few years back and wish I’d never left
I live not too far from Scarborough and I really enjoyed Murder at the Seaview Hotel. My favourite seaside location is Whitby. It was my grandparents’ favourite place and I always get nostalgic going there.
Tenby-even in winter not bleak but pretty with fabulous beaches around the Georgian town
We love Whitby 🙂
It’s not glamorous, famous or trendy but my favourite is Worthing Why because I live here and enjoy what it has to offer ever day of the year
Blackpool, So much to do.
I visited Hastings last year and was really impressed.
St Ives, beautiful
Scarborough always holds a special place in my heart,
Burnham on sea
I live by the sea and I’m a huge fan of the British coast so I’m not sure I can pick a favourite but Poole in Dorset brings back many lovely childhood memories.
Brighton. It brings back lovely memories of my Grandad, as he used to live there.
Eastbourne – They say home is where the heart is
I love Whitby! Such a historic place! Also love to visit places that are associated with Bram Stoker.

North Berwick ,East Lothian,happy times spent there throughout my childhood
Mablethorpe because it is still rather quaint and traditional

Blackpool because it has miles of golden, sandy beaches. Scarborough is another of my favourites because I love to visit Peasholm Park.

It’s cheap,cheerful and full of things to do with both children and adults
I love Folkestone. It’s got a pretty harbour and the harbour railway station which is no longer in use has been restored with lots of lovely restaurants, bars and food stalls. There is also a stunning park called The Leas which runs parallel to the seafront.
I like Selsey, we always used to go there as kids.
I’m from the Fylde coast and have to give love to the pleasures of Blackpool. It is what it is!
Lyme Regis. The beach is right in town so close to shops and amenities. The water is clean and, although tidal, fairly shallow so perfect for children. Love it!
It has to be Hunstanton in Norfolk. It has the most beautiful beach.
Torquay. Many very happy childhood memories
Love Bournemouth. Holds lovely memories for me.
I actually live at the seaside. Weston super Mare. Been here 47 years and loving it.
Definitely Swanage. Sandy beach, lovely fish and chip shops and a beach hut hire with super friendly people running it.
My favourite seaside destination is Whitby, great for fish and chips
My favorite seaside destination is Happisburgh Norfolk. It’s beautiful & rugged with miles of golden sand, interesting old rocks, a view of a working lighthouse in the distance & the coastline is disappearing into the stormy sea.
IT HAS TO BE BLACKPOOL, MANY HAPPY HOLIDAYS WHEN I WAS A CHILD
I love Overstrand in North Norfolk. Near the facilities of Cromer (walking distance) but far enough away to be quiet
Whitby. My husband and I have spent some lovely days there
Bournemouth, where I met my husband!
Somewhere on the Cornish coast. I am not a fan of seaside towns per se, but I do love the coast. Somewhere were there are plenty of rocky coves, where I can sit and listen to and watch, the waves hitting the rocks.

Tenby in Pembrokeshire is the absolute best seaside town

Love Whitby especially around Halloween x
we love Porthcawl in South Wales, our local beach
I love visiting beautiful Swanage.
Thurso in Caithness. I lived there for a year in my teens and loved the small seaside town atmosphere and the great sense of community. I suppose it’s more touristy now since the advent of the North Coast 500 though.
Love St Ives in Cornwall
Thanks yor the chance to win.
I keep returning to Minehead, so that must be “the place”
My favourite seaside town is Scarborough. I love it for its sandy beaches, it’s wonderful seafront, and the boat trips that take you to see spectacular places along the coast line. Bridlington too, has great charm and is easy to get to from Scarborough so you are spoilt for choice.
Seahouses – with easy access to The Farne Islands and Holy Island
Southampton is really lovely
As a Yorkshire girl, there’s one seaside resort close to my heart…Scarborough!
Mudeford in Dorset. Sand is so soft you just sink into you.

I love Mudeford in Dorset. Would go each year for a fortnight when I was a child. Went back recently and it had hardly changed
Filey or Whitby!
