Lemon Grove giveaway

Lemon GroveEach summer, Jenn and her husband Greg return to Deia, on Mallorca's dramatic west coast.  This year the arrival of Emma, Jenn's stepdaughter, and her new boyfriend Nathan threatens to upset their equilibrium.  Beautiful and reckless, Nathan stirs something unexpected in Jenn.  

As she is increasingly seduced by Nathan's youth and the promise of passion, the line between desire and obsession begins to blur. What follows is a highly-charged liaison that puts lives and relationships in jeopardy.  For Jenn, after this summer, nothing can ever be the same.

Reviews for The Lemon Grove

‘Extraordinarily, electrifyingly good, you will read it and then instantly give it to your best friend to read.’ Lisa Jewell

‘Walsh magnificently racks the tension up, notch by excruciating notch as the emotions in the villa reach fever pitch’. Independent

‘The Lemon Grove is fraught, highly-charged and very sexy, as well as being an intelligent take on raising other people’s children, and it should be at the top of your summer reading list.’ Stylist

‘It’s a very rare occurrence that I read a book whose prose is quite so poetic, whose plot is quite so compelling, that the second I finish it I want to re-read it all over again. This happened with The Lemon Grove.’ The Unlikely Bookworm
