ROBYN HARDING is celebrating the Holidays with us ** GIVEAWAY **





We’re celebrating the Holidays with author, ROBYN HARDING.

She’s written eight novels including the international bestseller, THE PARTY, published by Scout Press/Simon & Schuster and HER PRETTY FACE.



Frances Metcalfe is struggling to stay afloat.

A stay-at-home mom whose troubled son is her full-time job, she thought that the day he got accepted into the elite Forrester Academy would be the day she started living her life. Overweight, insecure, and lonely, she is desperate to fit into Forrester’s world. But after a disturbing incident at the school leads the other children and their families to ostracize the Metcalfes, she feels more alone than ever before.

Until she meets Kate Randolph.

Kate is everything Frances is not: beautiful, wealthy, powerful, and confident. And for some reason, she’s not interested in being friends with any of the other Forrester moms—only Frances. As the two bond over their disdain of the Forrester snobs and the fierce love they have for their sons, a startling secret threatens to tear them apart.

Because one of these women is not who she seems. She’s a murderer.

HER PRETTY FACE is a tale of lies, deceit, and betrayal, asking the question: Can people ever change? And even if they can, is it possible to forgive the past?



Robyn took time to share some Holiday cheer with us.

  1. What is your favorite Holiday? My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. I’m Canadian, so we celebrate it early in October, when the sun is still shining, and the leaves are starting to change color. I like it because it’s not a commercial holiday – it’s about being together in gratitude.

      2. What do you love about the Holidays?  I love being with family. I love having a                break from the work-routine and focusing on what really matters: the people we               care about. And eating!


  1. What is your fondest Holiday memory?  I have a distinct memory of Christmas when I was nine years old. “Santa” brought me a blue suitcase and an ABBA record. I was so happy! My dad passed away, suddenly, a few weeks later. I think that Christmas is etched into my memory because it was the last time we were all together.


  1. What are your wishes for 2019?  I want to be productive, positive, and kind. (We are hoping to buy a house, too!)


Robyn’s novels have been translated into seven languages. She’s also the screenwriter and executive producer of the independent film, The Steps which premiered at TIFF and was the closing gala film at the Miami International Film Festival. She lives in Vancouver, BC with her husband, two kids, and a seven-pound dog with no teeth.

She’s currently working on a new novel, and we can’t wait until its published!

Robyn has offered a copy of HER PRETTY FACE for our give away. Just tell us what elements you feel, as a reader, go into a good thriller. We’ll announce a winner soon. Good luck.

GIVEAWAY: USA only please.

  1. When the twist comes and you hit yourself in the head because you should have seen that coming……there were slight clues, but you breezed right by them.

  2. A good thriller makes me want to stay up late reading! It gives just enough hints to make me question EVERYTHING and EVERYONE, but not so much that I figure out the ending by chapter 3.

  3. I love good characters and dialogue who are keeping secrets the other characters don’t know until later in then story. Then all information comes together. Good tale with mystery and surprises “who done it”.

  4. In order for a book to be a good thriller, I need for the protagonist to be at least a little likable. Otherwise, I won’t care what happens to them.

  5. Unreliable narrators generally lead to the best suspense/thriller. Books that make you think everyone is the culprit and you can’t trust anyone. And of course a huge plot twist
