It’s day four of our Twelve Days of Christmas Giveaway and today Felicity Blunt has chosen her perfect Christmas book to give away. Visit our @CBBookGroup Twitter page for your chance to win.
DYING FOR CHRISTMAS by Tammy Cohen, chosen by Felicity Blunt, Literary Agent at Curtis Brown.
“What do you do at Christmas when you’re stuffed full of chocolate, overdosed on sickly sweet films and trying to avoid yet another family outing? Well, I would suggest that you get stuck into a grizzly psychological thriller. And there’s none better for this time of year than Tammy Cohen’s gripping Dying For Christmas.
Jessica Gold is having a break from Christmas shopping in the cafe of a department store when someone asks to join her table. It’s busy, he’s attractive- why would she refuse? As they begin to chat, she’s even more pleased with her out of character decision to say yes. His name is Dominic, and he’s a dimpled charmer who finds her fascinating. A far cry from her boyfriend, Travis. So when Dominic invites her back to his for a Christmas nightcap, Jessica, in a calculated moment of weakness, says yes, and goes back with him to his flat- where she is kept prisoner by a Dominic who turns out to be not kind and suave, but manipulative and sadistic.
Concurrently with Jessica’s deadly story, we get the story of the woman heading up the police search for her, Kim. A welcome respite from the events taking place inside Dominic’s flat, Kim’s story is equally compelling and is beautifully spun. The two stories combine to make for a book that you will zip through in record time, from the opening line (‘Chances are, by the time you finish reading this, I’ll be dead.’) to the twists you won’t see coming. Guaranteed to give you shivers no matter what the weather.’
