Win a Mother/Daughter pamper day with The Parent Problem

11 July 2016

By Pan Macmillan

To celebrate the release of Anna Wilson's new book The Parent Problem, we're offering you the chance to win the ultimate Mother/Daughter Pamper Day.

Skye Green's mum is driving her insane! When she's not posting EMBARRASSING pictures of Skye online or experimenting with BIZARRE clothing, she's forever taking up new hobbies - and her latest obsession is ballroom dancing! It's only a matter of time until she waltzes down the street in spandex and sequins - and to make matters worse, Skye's younger brother is wildly (and irritatingly) enthusiastic about Mum's new hobby, and about wearing Mum's sparkly new outfits!

As if this wasn't HORRIFIC enough, Skye's mum has also enlisted the new neighbour's son to come and 'babysit' when she's at dance class, and he's only a year older than Skye! Talk about MORTIFYING in the EXTREME! At least Skye's best friend, Aubrey is there to help Skye cope with her family's madness. They've been friends since before they can remember, and nothing will ever, EVER change that . . . right?
 

While mums can be mortifying, they deserve a treat too. So we’ve teamed up with Coco Nail Bar to offer an unforgettable day out for mum and daughter! You could win…

The prize consists of the following:
• Two treatments at Coco Nail Bar (Signature Coco Manicure and Pedicure and Little Hands and Feet treatment)
• Two tickets for STOMP London
• One night’s stay in The Strand Palace Hotel, subject to availability
• Travel costs to London up to £100


For a chance to win, please answer the question below. All entries must be received by 23:59 on Sunday 17 July 2016. Please read the full terms and conditions below.

What is Skye’s last name?

By Pan Macmillan

To celebrate the release of The Lake House we have partnered with the luxurious Merchants Manor in Falmouth, Cornwall to offer you and a friend the opportunity to win a luxury mini break.
 
Set on the Cornish coast Merchants Manor offers a tranquil escape from the bustling city.  Dating back to 1910 the four star hotel combines the timeless elegance of a traditional English manor house whilst providing a cosy feel, making its guests feel as if they are in a home away from home.
 
The hotel also features a stunning new spa and relaxation complex, Linen Rooms – a place of sensuality, calm and relaxation.  With unique and personalised treatments, Linen Rooms is a haven to relax your body and clear your head. Our winner will receive two complimentary treatments at Linen Rooms using Cornish artisan organic skincare brand Inlight.


 
In addition you will also be able to enjoy breakfast in the hotel’s restaurant – Rastella. Providing a choice of homemade mueslis and even a Smugglers’ Breakfast you’ll be set up for a day of exploration as you visit the picturesque harbour in Falmouth and town of St. Mawes.
 
After a day of discovery you and your guest can indulge in a delicious dinner in Rastella. Offering a selection of mouth-watering seasonal dishes using the finest, freshest ingredients sourced from local, organic farms and suppliers in the area.


About the book
 
From the author of The House at Riverton and The Secret Keeper, The Lake House has everything that readers have come to love about Kate Morton novels.
 
An abandoned house… After a particularly troubling case, Sadie Sparrow is sent on an enforced break from her job with the Metropolitan Police and retreats to her beloved grandfather’s cottage in Cornwall.  There she finds herself at a loose end, until one day she stumbles upon an abandoned house surrounded by overgrown gardens and dense woods, and learns the story of a baby boy who disappeared without a trace.
 
A missing child… June 1933, and the Edevane family’s country house, Loeanneth, is polished and gleaming, ready for the much-anticipated Midsummer Eve party.  For Eleanor, the annual party has always been one of her treasured traditions but her middle daughter, Alice, Sixteen years old and with literary ambitions, is especially excited.  Not only has Alice worked out the prefect twist for her novel, she’s also fallen helplessly in love with someone she shouldn’t.  But by the time midnight strikes and fireworks light up the night sky, the Edevane family will have suffered a loss so great they leave Loeanneth and never return.
 
An unsolved mystery… Seventy years later, in the attic writing room of her elegant Hampstead home, the formidable Alice Edevane leads a life as neatly plotted as the bestselling detective novels she writes.  Until a young police detective starts asking questions about her family’s past and seeking to resurrect the complete tangle of secrets Alice has spent her life trying to escape.

Summer's Shadow Competition

06 July 2016

By Pan Macmillan

When Summer’s mum dies, Summer’s life is turned upside down.

Her mother's will states that Summer's legal guardian is her uncle Tristan: a man Summer has never even heard of before. Forced to leave her life in London, Summer moves to Tristan's creepy, ancient house in Cornwall. There she is met with indifference from him, open hostility from her cousin, and an aunt who has chosen to leave rather than to tolerate her presence.

Soon Summer comes to believe that the house may be haunted. But is it haunted by ghosts, or by the shadows of her family's past?

Scared and lonely, Summer begins to spend more and more time in the beautiful sheltered cove she discovers nearby. But she's not alone. A local boy frequents it too. Can Summer find first love and the answers to the mysteries of her new home with this good-looking boy who appears to be too perfect to be true?

To win a copy of Summer's Shadow by Anna Wilson, answer the question below:

To celebrate the publication of Karen Swan's new summer blockbuster The Paris Secret, we are giving one lucky competition winner the chance to win a trip for two to Paris. The prize includes travel to Paris plus two nights accommodation.  
 
Not every door should be opened...

With stunning locations and page-turning tension, The Paris Secret is an intense and gripping tale from bestselling author Karen Swan.

Somewhere along the cobbled streets of Paris, an apartment lies thick with dust and secrets: full of priceless artworks hidden away for decades.

High-flying fine art agent Flora from London, more comfortable with the tension of a million-pound auction than a cosy candlelit dinner for two, is called in to assess these suddenly discovered treasures. As an expert in her field, she must trace the history of each painting and discover who has concealed them for so long.

Thrown in amongst the glamorous Vermeil family as they move between Paris and Antibes, Flora begins to discover that things aren't all that they seem, while back at home her own family is recoiling from a seismic shock. The terse and brooding Xavier Vermeil seems intent on forcing Flora out of his family's affairs – but just what is he hiding?

The prize consists of the following:
Two return flights to Paris or two tickets on the Eurostar (depending on the location of the winner) and two nights accommodation in Paris

For a chance to win, please answer the question below. All entries must be received by 23:59 on Thursday 22 September 2016. Please read the full terms and conditions below.
