With my balloon day on the horizon AND as a celebration of reaching 2,000 (eek!) followers over on Twitter, I am hosting another GIVEAWAY!!
My HUGE thanks go to author Jennifer Renshaw for allowing me to offer a copy of her debut novel The Parlour Game, along withand a Gothically-themed ‘Haunted House’ wax melt!
Details of how to enter can be found at the bottom of this post but, before you do that, let me tell you a little bit about the book in question!
About the Book
Ivy Granger, an amateur botanist, is plagued by disturbing dreams and faceless whispers. Misunderstood by her father, she fears for her sanity – threatened with the asylum or worse, the hands of the man she loathes.
But a stranger at her mother’s funeral reveals Ivy’s world has been a lie, and she could have a different life, for she is capable of so much more…
Miss Earnshaw, London’s most renowned spiritualist, is Ivy’s only hope of revealing what secrets her mother took to the grave and discovering her true purpose.
Ivy’s journey for knowledge takes her to Blackham House, a building haunted by a terrible past – full of macabre artefacts and ancient studies of the supernatural. But behind closed doors, the Blackhams collect more than relics alone, and Ivy will soon find herself at the centre of a conspiracy spanning generations, and a hidden evil waiting to be unleashed.
Can Ivy survive in a world where women must play their part or risk being silenced?
