Giveaway: Win an ecopy of Containment by Vanda Symon

Today I was supposed to be reviewing Containment, the latest book in the Sam Shepherd series by Vanda Symon, for the the blog tour but sadly my reading mojo and concentration levels seem to have disappeared which has meant that I've only managed to read 3 chapters all week. Reading has always been my coping mechanism and escaping into the world of books usually helps me forget about everything that's going on around me so it's sad that reading and books are not helping me at a time when I need them the most 😟

To honour my blog tour commitment I have decided to host a giveaway using the gift an eBook option on Amazon UK (sadly you can only gift eBooks to someone living in the same country as you which means it will need to be restricted to residents in the UK only) for one follower to win a copy to read for themselves. I'll then review Containment at a later date once my reading mojo has returned.

Chaos reigns in the sleepy village of Aramoana on the New Zealand coast, when a series of shipping containers wash up on the beach and looting begins.

Detective Constable Sam Shephard experiences the desperation of the scavengers first-hand, and ends up in an ambulance, nursing her wounds and puzzling over an assault that left her assailant for dead.

What appears to be a clear-cut case of a cargo ship running aground soon takes a more sinister turn when a skull is found in the sand, and the body of a diver is pulled from the sea … a diver who didn’t die of drowning…

As first officer at the scene, Sam is handed the case, much to the displeasure of her superiors, and she must put together an increasingly confusing series of clues to get to the bottom of a mystery that may still have more victims…

  1. I've lost my reading mojo too. I normally race through books but lately I've been struggling to read more than a page or two each day. I just can't seem to concentrate at the moment. There's too much going on in the world. I hope things improve soon.

  2. Thanks for supporting the blog tour Sharon - take care xx
