Books and Chocolates Giveaway

Here is my latest books and chocolates giveaway. I love to run little competitions to give something back to you, and books and chocolates are two of my favourite things.
This month there are three books in the giveaway and a small box of milk tray chocolates.
Books and Chocolates Giveaway
The first book in the giveaway is called 44 Scotland Street by Alexander McCall Smith. This book is about a fictitious building in a real street in Edinburgh. It’s based on characters who have some sort of relationship with 44 Scotland Street. You can follow them through different journeys in their lives.  This is book number 1 in the series so a good place to start.
Book Description
The story revolves around the comings and goings at No. 44 Scotland Street, a fictitious building in a real street in Edinburgh. Immediately recognisable are the Edinburgh chartered surveyor, stalwart of the Conservative Association, who dreams of membership of Scotland’s most exclusive golf club. We have the pushy Stockbridge mother, and her prodigiously talented five-year-old son, who is making good progress with the saxophone and with his Italian. Then there is Domenica Macdonald who is that type of Edinburgh lady who sees herself as a citizen of a broader intellectual world. In McCall Smith’s hands such characters retain charm and novelty, simultaneously arousing both mirth and empathy. 44 Scotland Street is vintage McCall Smith, tackling issues of trust and honesty, snobbery and hypocrisy, love and loss, but all with great lightness of touch. Clever, elegant and funny, this is a novel that provides huge entertainment but which is underpinned by the moral dilemmas of everyday life and the characters’ struggles to resolve them.

The second book in the giveaway is called Material Girl by Louise Kean. Material Girl is a chick lit book with great characters. It’s about growing old and taking risks.
Book Description
Can real life have a happy -ever-after? A controversial, debate-provoking novel about growing older, taking risks and living for the moment, from the author of the highly acclaimed The Perfect 10.
Take some lessons in love – from a movie star…
Dolly Russell was a star of the big screen at a time when women were beautiful and men were strong.
Scarlet White is a make-up artist at a time when women are desperate to be beautiful and men are pretty rubbish…
Dolly, having been coaxed out of a decade’s exile in the Hollywood Hills after a glittering career and a headline-grabbing love life, is the latest star to grace the West End. A notorious diva, she’s used to getting her own way. Scarlet is a woman on the edge – going nowhere fast with her boyfriend of three years, getting herself into compromising situations, lusting over the leading man and wondering where the promise of yesterday went.
When the two are thrown together on the eve of the opening night, the last make-up artist having fled with a bad case of nerves, fireworks seems inevitable. But instead an unlikely friendship blossoms as Dolly gives Scarlet some valuable lessons in life and love, opening up as Scarlet gets closer, her still-beautiful mask finally slipping.
In a world where sex and love are often mistaken, possessions are more important than emotions and where ‘must do’ is swapped for ‘make do’, Scarlet’s passion for life is reawakened. As she ventures to live life like a movie star, she wonders if maybe a fairytale ending – complete with leading man and glorious sunset – is possible after all…
Material Girl by Louise Kean
The last book I’m giving away is my favourite, A Family Daughter by Maile Meloy. Perfect for a lazy Summer afternoon read.
Book Description
Brilliantly entertaining, A Family Daughter might also be the most insightful novel about families and love that you will read this year.
It’s 1979, and seven-year-old Abby, the youngest member of the close-knit Santerre family, is trapped indoors with the chicken pox during a heat wave. The events set in motion that summer will span decades and continents and change the Santerres forever.
A rich, full novel about passion and desire, fear and betrayal, A Family Daughter illuminates both the joys and complications of contemporary life, and the relationship between truth and fiction.

So to enter the giveaway please fill in the Rafflecopter below. Please note that due to postage costs this will be a UK only competition.

  67. 27th May 2016 / 3:44 pm

    Anywhere and everywhere! I can't go on a plane or a train without a book to read, and if I an ever confined to bed I need a huge pile of books. But my favourite reading spot is my armchair, ideally with either a cup of tea or a glass of wine by my side (according to the time of day).
