GIVEAWAY: 3 copies of Foul Play at the Seaview Hotel – SCARBOROUGH

29th November 2023

We are delighted to offer 3 copies of Foul Play at the Seaview Hotel by Glenda Young, crime mystery set in SCARBOROUGH.


3 copies of Foul Play at the Seaview Hotel

In the charming Yorkshire seaside town of Scarborough, a killer game is being played . . .

Helen Dexter is enjoying the new four-star status of the Seaview Hotel. But she begins to wonder if this accolade is cursed when a series of disasters strike.

It starts when a crazy golf team arrive to play in a Scarborough tournament. Their odd behaviour heightens when the rival team captain turns up. Yet, there’s worse to come for Helen when one of the guests is murdered playing crazy golf.

Then the Seaview’s prize-winning cook Jean quits, leaving Helen devastated. And so, as Helen’s fiftieth birthday approaches, the last thing she’s in the mood for is a celebration. However, mysterious invitations arrive to a party that Helen doesn’t want.

Can Helen unmask the crazy golf killer, save the reputation of the Seaview, win Jean back and solve the mystery of the party invitations? With her rescue greyhound Suki by her side, Helen Dexter is on the case.

    Long walks along a beach where people are few and far between, paddling and listen to the noise of the sea. My favourite being Cefyn Sidan at Pembrey, South Wales.

    Here on the Pembrokeshire coast we have so many lovely beaches, all offering something different. My favourite is Barafundle and on a beautiful Summer day you would think you were in the Caribbean

    The best thing about a British beach holiday is watching people having fun on the beach. Also, hunting for shells and interesting things that have been washed ashore. Oh and feeling a sense of achievement every time you manage to avoid stepping on a jellyfish while walking on the beach!

    The sea in the Hebrides is so white and clean and the sea is such a beautiful turquoise, it’s amazing. You don’t need to travel abroad for stunning beaches

    The best thing is eating a big, messy ice-cream on the promenade.

    Walking along the beach followed by eating fish and chips overlooking the sea. Then a walk along the front then finding a cench to sit and eat donuts.

    The best things about the British holidays are fish and chips out of paper, and the ability to get to the coast relatively easily no matter where you reside.

    British beach holidays can be a bit hit and miss with the weather, but if you have nice sunny weather it is certainly a holiday to treasure.

    I love to see the children playing in the chilly water while enjoying the scenery.

    A British holiday is special because (when the sun shines) we have lovely beaches and everything is familiar to us.


  47. User: Tess P

    Posted on: 01/12/2023 at 10:20 pm

    The surprise gems you stumble across. And the trashy bingo and arcades!

    Posted on: 01/12/2023 at 7:46 pm

    The good ol unpredictable weather,british traditions such as fish n chips on the harbour wall whilst dodging seagulls and the quaint little seaside shops that you can discover whilst exploring.


  49. User: Janet Haste

    Posted on: 01/12/2023 at 6:33 pm

    It is lovely to be eating fish and chips or an ice-cream walking on the beach, in the sun and watching people enjoying themselves.

    Always went to Scarborough as a child and now live close by. British beach holidays are great, smell of the sea, freezing water to swim in and some pristine beaches to lap up the sun sorry rain. Seriously I love it

    I love passing the traditions down to my daughter that I did with my mum and dad. Fish & Chips, ice cream, paddling in the waves and having a little flutter in the amusements


  57. User: lapsapchung

    Posted on: 01/12/2023 at 2:05 pm

    Our weather is so changeable that the sea view is constantly changing, stormy and dramatic one day, still and peaceful the next. I can spend hours watching the sea. In most other countries it’s too predictable


  58. User: Jacobsmum

    Posted on: 01/12/2023 at 2:04 pm

    Grew up living near the beach – although shingle I enjoyed walks along the promenade, ice creams, sandy sandwiches, buckets and spades, dipping toes in freezing water. Special memories.

    Posted on: 29/11/2023 at 5:07 pm

    I love all the memories that are evoked from the smells of waffles, the sound of our native seabirds and the cold, oh so cold seawater on my toes! Scarborough is a favourite resort that we’ve visited since I was a baby!

    British fish and chips from a takeaway, eaten in a secluded spot to avoid the seagulls bothering me – preferably on a rocky outcrop where I can watch and listen to the waves crashing onto the shoreline! 🙂
