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…

    Well I was supposed to be visiting Dracula’s castle in Romania, but alas my friend booked flights to Bratislava rather than Bucharest (“they both begin with a B” was the excuse) – so now I am looking forward to visiting Bratislava Castle…

    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. 🙂
