Jenn-J-McLeod_bridge_web_f_improf_196x297Shadow-cover-screenshot-194x300Jenn J McLeod is releasing a new book just in time for Mother’s Day – and thanks to the lovely people at Simon & Schuster I have one copy to give away. Here’s the enticing blurb for Season of Shadow and Light:


When it seems everything Paige trusts is beginning to betray her, she leaves her husband at home and sets off on a road trip with six year old Matilda, and Nana Alice in tow.
But stranded amid rising floodwaters, on a detour to the tiny town of Coolabah Tree Gully, Paige discovers the greatest betrayal of all happened there twenty years earlier.
Someone knows that truth can wash away the darkest shadows, but…
Are some secrets best kept for the sake of others?

To win a copy of Jenn’s latest release, just leave a comment telling us which book you would recommend to us at the moment. The competition will close at midday WA time on Tuesday 5 May. Good luck!

    I have just finished reading Sara Gruen’s ‘At The Water’s Edge’ and recommend it very warmly. It was a great read, a really interesting story and I particularly liked the way she developed the characters. Thank you for the opportunity . Cheers Delores

    I haven’t finished any novels yet this year as I read more than one at a time but I did love Burial Rites last year and highly recommend it.

    Delores, thanks for entering the giveaway. I am so glad you mentioned this as I love Sara Gruen and didn’t realise this book was out. I will look for it, thank you!

    Ramona, I have read bits of Burial Rites but I need to find the time to sit down and savour it. Thank you for reminding me! Best of luck in the giveaway.

    My favourite book of the year, so far, has been The Strays by Emily Bitto & I was delighted when it deservedly won the Stella prize. When the book first appeared on my radar I thought it wasn’t my sort of book as I’m not particularly interested in art or the 1930s. I was then lucky enough to hear Emily talk on a panel at the Perth Writers Festival. I’d actually gone to see Inga Simpson as I’ve loved both her books, Mr Wigg & Nest (another two sneaky recommendations!). About a week later I found The Strays in my hand at the library & knew I had to read it! I found myself limiting how much I read each day as I wanted to savour each page. I now have to buy the book as it’s a keeper!

    Bad Behaviour: A memoir of bullying and boarding school by Rebecca Starford. Reality- high school is a nightmare for a lot of girls, but being at a secluded boarding school makes it a whole new world.

    Wow, Liz, that’ high praise indeed – I didn’t know much about The Strays before the Stella Prize, but it’s now firmly on my radar! Thanks for entering the draw and good luck.

    Thanks Wendy, sounds like a disturbing insight into what can go on at boarding schools. I’ll look out for this one.

    ELIZABETH IS MISSING by Emma Healey was a fantastic read. Most intriguing & an unusual read.

    Hi Sara I would definitely recommend Susan Lewis – Behind Closed Doors. I couldn’t put it down it was fantastic, well written and I just LOVE a book you cannot put down. Being a busy working mother my time is night time before bed and I often found myself reading until well into the morning. Very tired I must say the next day but well worth the time. I look forward to your next book. Kind regards

    Thanks Adele – this Susan Lewis book sounds right up my alley! I am in a similar position to you, often foregoing precious sleep for a great read! Thanks for your comment and good luck in the draw.
