St Patrick's Day Giveaway: Win a copy of The Liar's Girl by Catherine Ryan Howard

Regulars of the blog will no doubt have spotted that I am a huge supporter of Irish Fiction which is partly due to my heritage, was born in Northern Ireland and still have relatives over there but have lived in the UK most of my life, but also because there are so many great Irish writers out there.

In past years I have organised Irish Fiction feature weeks or months to coincide with St. Patrick's Day but this year with a hectic work schedule I simply haven't had the time... but I couldn't let the day pass without doing something.  So I have decided to go a giveaway for a trade paperback copy of The Liar's Girl by Catherine Ryan Howard as I received a review copy from the publisher but I had also pre-ordered the eBook which I will read for review, hopefully later this month.

Her first love confessed to five murders. But the truth was so much worse.

Dublin's notorious Canal Killer, Will Hurley, is ten years into his life sentence when the body of a young woman is fished out of the Grand Canal. Though detectives suspect they are dealing with a copycat, they turn to Will for help. He claims he has the information the police need, but will only give it to one person - the girl he was dating when he committed his horrific crimes.

Alison Smith has spent the last decade abroad, putting her shattered life in Ireland far behind her. But when she gets a request from Dublin imploring her to help prevent another senseless murder, she is pulled back to face the past - and the man - she's worked so hard to forget.

As with all giveaways on the blog, this one is open to existing followers of the blog as a thank you for your support.  The winner will be selected at random when the giveaway ends and contacted for their postal address to enable me to post the book to them. NB. Please do not add details of this giveaway to other sites without my permission.
