Win a break for two in the Cotswolds

Plus two signed copies of Kate Riordan’s new novel, The Girl in the Photograph and a digital edition

To celebrate the publication of Kate Riordan’s new novel, The Girl in the Photograph, we’re offering one winner a break for two on the Owlpen Manor estate in the Cotswold countryside, plus two signed copies of the book and an eBook edition from iBooks. 10 runners up will receive the eBook also.

The Girl in the Photograph is a haunting novel about two women separated by decades and entwined by fate. When Alice Eveleigh arrives at Fiercombe Manor in 1933, she finds a house steeped in mystery. Tragedy haunts the empty rooms and traces of the previous occupant, Elizabeth Stanton, are everywhere. As Alice begins to unearth the truth, she must stop her own life becoming an eerie echo of Elizabeth’s. Find out more about The Girl in the Photograph here.

Take in the setting which inspired the novel as you relax in a charming private cottage on the Owlpen Manor estate, situated in a stunning valley that is yours to roam throughout your stay. Enjoy a welcome hamper on your arrival, in addition to two signed copies of the book to read while you’re there.

Thanks for entering our competition - we wish you the best of luck!
