Laura McHugh’s ARROWOOD is featured in this week’s giveaway

This week CrimeSpree Magazine, in conjunction with Friday Reads Facebook page, is offering you a chance to win a copy of ARROWOOD by Laura McHugh




A dark, gripping novel of literary suspense about a mysterious kidnapping and the ways in which our lives are shaped by memory and the stories we create about our past.

Arrowood is the most ornate and beautiful of the grand historical houses that line the Mississippi river in southern Iowa where the days are long and humid and communities are small and closed. It has its own secrets and ghostly presence: it’s where two small twin girls were abducted twenty years previously – never to be seen again. Now, Arden has inherited Arrowood, and she returns to her childhood home determined to establish what really happened to her sisters that traumatic summer. But the house and the surrounding town hold their secrets close – and the truth, when Arden finds it, is more devastating than she ever could have imagined. Family lies, buried secrets, and a terrifying truth lie at the heart of this brilliant and haunting crime novel.
