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.

UK only

3 copies of Curtain Call at the Seaview Hotel

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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Sorry, forgot to log in on last entry so didn’t know if it would count

    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

    Woolacombe and Ilfracombe bring back happy memories of my childhood. Beautiful beaches too!
