#BookGiveaway: The Beach House by Beverley Jones

Details of a giveaway for The Beach House by Beverley Jones set in Wales and Oregan

I’m running a giveaway as part of the book tour marking the publication of The Beach House by Beverley Jones. Entry details can be found further down the page.

About The Beach House

When Grace Jensen returns to her home one day, she finds a body in a pool of blood and a menacing gift left for her.

The community of Lookout Beach is shocked by such a brutal intrusion in their close-knit neighbourhood – particularly to a family as successful and well-liked as the Jensens – and a police investigation to find the trespasser begins.

But Grace knows who’s after her. She might have changed her name and moved across the world, deciding to hide on the Oregon coast, but she’s been waiting seventeen years for what happened in the small Welsh town where she grew up to catch-up with her.

Grace might seem like the model neighbour and mother, but nobody in Lookout Beach – not even her devoted husband Elias – knows the real her. Or how much blood is on her hands.

The Beach House  is published by Constable, part of the Little, Brown book group. It is available as an ebook and in paperback
