To celebrate the fact that last year at this very same time, I was saying goodbye to the Orenda Month I hosted on Chocolate’n’Waffles, I decided to share my love!
Thanks a lot to Karen Sullivan for allowing me to host a giveaway and let a reader get a proof of one of her stories. You rock, Orenda Mama!
I can’t believe it was a year ago that I had so much fun drawing the Orenda Books Tree! And today, we are partying with a new branch of said tree…
Today you can win the proof copy of We Were the Salt of the Sea from Roxanne Bouchard!
Happy Paperback Publication Day, Roxanne!
As Montrealer Catherine Day sets foot in a remote fishing village and starts asking around about her birth mother, the body of a woman dredges up in a fisherman’s nets. Not just any woman, though: Marie Garant, an elusive, nomadic sailor and unbridled beauty who once tied many a man’s heart in knots. Detective Sergeant Joaquin Morales, newly drafted to the area from the suburbs of Montreal, barely has time to unpack his suitcase before he’s thrown into the deep end of the investigation.
On Quebec’s outlying Gaspé Peninsula, the truth can be slippery, especially down on the fishermen’s wharves. Interviews drift into idle chit-chat, evidence floats off with the tide and the truth lingers in murky waters. It’s enough to make DS Morales reach straight for a large whisky… Both a dark and consuming crime thriller and a lyrical, poetic ode to the sea, We Were the Salt of the Sea is a stunning, page-turning novel, from one of the most exciting new names in crime fiction.
