      Late Autumn Supporter Giveaway   11/27/2020

      I know that winter is well on the way, but I'm sneaking the autumn giveaway in here, right at the end of the season...     I thought this giveaway seemed particularly appropriate for this year: Dear Reader: The Comfort and Joy of Books by Cathy Rentzenbrink.  I'm sure some of you will have heard of this book. It came out in September and has had brilliant reviews. It's been described as a love letter to reading and I think all of us have truly appreciated 'the comfort and joy of books' this year.  It is also a really beautiful hardback. Please excuse my picture-taking skills, it's really hard to get a good picture of something that's shiny!   As always, patreon supporters will be automatically entered into the draw. If you're not a supporter but you'd like to join our patreon you can do so here:  bookclubforum.co.uk is creating a book community | Patreon

  1. I recently read this novel I found on Amazon by first time author Robert Taylor and was extremely impressed with both the gripping plot and how well it was written. It is about a grief stricken ex-Army Colonel who lost his young son on a plane destroyed by a terrorist bomb 4-years earlier. His anguish and frustration with his government's failure to pursue the responsible terrorists cost him his marriage and ended his military career. A parallel storyline involves a weak US President whose poor decision had allowed the terrorists to remain free and now finds himself under criticism by his own Vice President who is preparing to run against him in the next election. The two storylines merge and an exciting hunt begins to find the terrorist group taking you on a fast paced roller coaster ride. Without revealing too much more of the story and two rather surprising outcomes at the end of the novel, I'd just say this book is definitely worth reading if you enjoy well written action thrillers. It is detailed and realistic. The author either did a great deal of research or had a great deal of personal experience in intelligence and military matters.
