GIVEAWAY! – 3 copies of THE WICKED GAME by Michelle Lawson, set in Kathmandu

13th January 2020

We are delighted to give you the opportunity to win one of 3 copies of THE WICKED GAME by Michelle Lawson, set in Kathmandu.

THE WICKED GAME by Michelle Lawson, set in Kathmandu

On a mission to change her predictable life, recently divorced Kate sets up a small business buying items from Nepal to sell back home. In colourful Kathmandu she meets Chandra, a charismatic young trekking guide. They embark on a relationship where Kate becomes transformed by her adventurous affair, but is nevertheless realistic about the short-term nature of the liaison.

Once Kate is back in England, Chandra pursues her with ideas for making a life together. Gripped by the thought that someone like Chandra could find her desirable, Kate becomes preoccupied by his vision of their future as a couple. She makes several trips back to Nepal, where Kate finds it increasingly difficult to understand her place in his world and yet she continues to invest hope in the relationship.

HOW TO ENTER:

  1. Join up. It’s easy to do (and there are lots of perks). Scroll down on THIS LINK

    I love reading about the Nepal region and would love to travel there through the book. Unfortunately asthma prevents me from climbing such altitudes.
    About 15 years ago we had a wonderful touring holiday in India and Nepal was supposed to be one of the destinations. Unfortunately due to the political climate at the time, it was deleted from the itinerary and we went to Lucknow instead. Always wished we had been able to visit. Fingers crossed to win this!

      That’s such a shame your trip to Nepal was cancelled – I went to Lucknow a few years ago and I imagine it’s very different to Nepal 🙂 I really hope you get there one day (and if not, then through this book!) Good luck!

    I would never in a million years be able to climb Mount Everest (not even before my broken ankle!) so if I found myself back in Nepal, I would sit in Durbar Square, watching the world go by!
    Then I would go off & do a stint teaching little children some English!

    I couldn’t handle the climbing or the altitude of Everest – if I ever got the opportunity to visit Nepal I would spend my time visiting some of our old, now retired, friends from the days when my husband served in the Brigade of Gurkhas. I never got to visit Nepal during his army days and I’ve heard so much about it from my Nepalese friends.
