Giveaway: Win a signed copy of Lying in Wait by Liz Nugent

Today I'm delighted to be re-sharing with you Emma's review as part of the Lying in Wait paperback blog tour, as this book proved to be one of Emma's top picks from 2016, as well as offering one of you the chance to win a copy of this fabulous book to read for yourself.

A quick introduction to Liz Nugent

Before becoming a full-time writer Liz Nugent worked in Irish film, theatre and television. In 2014 her first novel, Unravelling Oliver, was a No.1 bestseller and won the Crime Fiction prize in the 2014 Irish Book Awards.

Her second novel, Lying in Wait, went straight to No 1 in the Irish bestseller charts, remained there for nearly two months and won her a second IBA.

She lives in Dublin with her husband.

'My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it.'

Lydia Fitzsimons lives in the perfect house with her adoring husband and beloved son. There is just one thing Lydia yearns for to make her perfect life complete, though the last thing she expects is that pursuing it will lead to murder. However, needs must - because nothing can stop this mother from getting what she wants ...

Below are a few quotes from Emma's review, you can read the full review here
Lying in Wait, the second book from Liz Nugent, is just amazing I still can't get it out of my head.
The quote on the cover from Sophie Hannah says 'a stunningly talented writer' and Liz certainly is and has confirmed it with a read that will get deep inside your head and leave you breathless as you race through the pages peeling back the many layers to this story. 
I would love to see it being selected for the Richard and Judy Book Club which would catapult Liz onto an even bigger stage or even to to be picked up by a production company.
I think after re-reading this last quote that I need to get Emma to pick my lottery numbers for me as the first part of her prediction has certainly come true for Liz as Lying in Wait has been selected as one of the books for the Spring 2017 Richard and Judy Book Club, massive congratulations to you Liz.  Now we just need the BBC to call about making a TV drama...

Thanks to Sara at Penguin, I have a signed copy of Lying in Wait to give away to a follower of the blog.  Enter via the Rafflecopter form below, the winner will be selected at random next week and contacted for their address to pass onto Sara to send the book to them.
