As postage prices rise it's getting harder to offer giveaways so I'm doing a massive end of year giveaway. I am hoping to source new giveaways from publishers in 2023 so I won't need to foot the postage bill.
I have some fabulous books on this list. Some are brand new and some lightly read. All would be great holiday reads.
Enter for as many books as you like... and Good Luck.
The 6:20 Man by David Baldacci
Every day without fail,
Travis Devine puts on a cheap suit, grabs his faux-leather briefcase,
and boards the 6:20 commuter train to Manhattan, where he works as an
entry-level analyst at the city’s most prestigious investment firm. In
the mornings, he gazes out the train window at the lavish homes of the
uberwealthy, dreaming about joining their ranks. In the evenings, he
listens to the fiscal news on his phone, already preparing for the next
grueling day in the cutthroat realm of finance.
Then one morning Devine’s tedious routine is shattered by an anonymous email: She is dead.
Ewes, Devine’s coworker and former girlfriend, has been found hanging
in a storage room of his office building—presumably a suicide, prompting
the NYPD to come calling on him. If that wasn’t enough, Devine receives
another ominous visit, a confrontation that threatens to dredge up grim
secrets from his past in the Army unless he participates in a
clandestine investigation into his firm.
This treacherous role
will take Travis from the impossibly glittering lives he once saw only
through a train window, to the darkest corners of the country’s economic
halls of power…where something rotten lurks. And apart from this
high-stakes conspiracy, there’s a killer out there with their own
agenda, and Devine is the bullseye

Keeping Up Appearances by Tricia Stringer
As tensions simmer in a
small country town, three women are going to need more than CWA sausage
rolls and can-do community spirit to put things right. From a
bestselling Australian author comes a delightful novel full of practical
wisdom and dry humour that examines female friendship, buried secrets
and why honesty is (usually) the best policy.
Privacy is hard to
maintain in Badara, the kind of small Australian country town where
everyone knows everyone else's business. So discovers single mum Paige
when she and her three children arrive from the city seeking refuge.
Paige's only respite from child care and loneliness is the Tuesday gym
club, where she had feared the judgement of the town matriarchs, but she
is met only with generosity and a plethora of baked goods. Besides,
both the brusque Marion and her polished sister-in-law Briony are too
busy dealing with their own dramas to examine hers.
farmer's wife and proud mother Briony is in full denial of her family's
troubles. Even with her eldest daughter's marriage in ruins and her son
Blake's recent bombshell. Suddenly Briony and husband Vince have a full
house again - and the piles of laundry aren't the only dirty linen
that's about to be aired.
For Marion, the unearthing of a time
capsule - its contents to be read at the Celebrate Badara weekend - is a
disaster. She was only a teenager when she wrote down those poisonous
words, but that doesn't mean she won't lose friends and family if they
hear what she really thinks of them - especially as the letter reveals
their darkest secrets to the world.
When the truth comes out for Badara, keeping up appearances may no longer be an option for anyone ...
