Win an indulgent break for two

To celebrate the publication of The Secrets Sisters Keep by Sinead Moriarty

The Secrets Sisters Keep, the delightful new novel from bestselling author Sinead Moriarty has published, so we’re offering one winner a relaxing minibreak to treat their sister (or friend) in a country house hotel with Hand Picked Hotels and a signed paperback of the new book.

The prize includes an indulgent break for two at one of the 21 heritage hotels, with dinner and full breakfast the next morning. Each hotel is set in a rural location and offers the grandeur and opulence of a country house with exquisite fine dining options.

Sinead Moriarty’s writing mixes the worldly wit of Jane Green with the down-to-earth warmth and insight of Marian Keyes and will remind people just how important sisters (and sibling-like friends) are.

The Devlin sisters rely on each other – but some things are just too painful to share, even when your sisters are your best friends . . .
Mum-of-four Julie thought that if her family had more money, life would be easier. But now they have inherited a fortune, her problems are only starting. Lawyer Louise is used to having life go exactly as she wants it to. So accepting that she cannot control everything in her world is beyond her. And former model Sophie can just about cope with getting older, until her ex-husband finds a younger model.

All three women think that some battles are best fought alone. Maybe they need to think again…
