3rd July 2022

We are delighted to be able to offer 3 copies of Storm by Stephanie Merritt, set in a chateau in FRANCE.

UK ONLY3 copies of STORM by Stephanie Merritt

“The most delicious book. Full of twists, turns and moving, realistic reveals” – Bestselling author Marian Keyes

A beautiful French chateau
Jo Lawless is still grieving her husband when his oldest friends invite her to a weekend house party in France. She’s always felt like an outsider in the group but she decides to go, hoping their shared loss will bring them closer together.

A party full of secrets
But the weekend is disrupted by the arrival of an unexpected guest, whose presence brings old tensions to the surface. Long-buried secrets begin to emerge, and it’s clear that at least one person is bent on revenge…

A night that will end in murder
The cold light of morning reveals a horrifying discovery. And the killer isn’t finished. A storm is coming, and no one at this party is safe…

    We are lucky enough to have visited and lived close by, to many castles over the years, across many parts of the UK.

    I would however love to return to Hampton Court Palace, which I visited when I was a very small child, so can’t really remember all that well.

    If I had a dream place to visit though, it would probably be the Palace of Versailles, we just didn’t get time when we were last in France. I love formal gardens, so alongside the grandeur of the Palace, that would make my trip. 🙂
