BBAW Giveaway #2

I am celebrating BBAW with 5 giveaways this week, one each day, 4 books by Australian authors, and one related to Agatha Christie.

Today's giveaway is FRANTIC by Katherine Howell

Publisher's Blurb

In one terrible moment, paramedic Sophie Phillips life is torn apart - her police officer husband, Chris, is shot on their doorstep and their ten-month-old son, Lachlan, is stolen from his bed. The police suspect Chris is involved with a number of armed hold-ups and that the attack is revenge for his desire to distance himself from the robberies, but Sophie believes the attack is much more personal - and the perpetrator far more dangerous... While Chris is in hospital and the police, led by Detective Ella Marconi, are moving heaven and earth to find their colleague's child, Sophie's desperation to make amends compels her to search for Lachlan herself. She enlists her husband's partner, Angus Arendson, in her hunt for her son, but will the history they share prove harmful to Sophie's ability to complete her mission? And could one dangerous decision cause Sophie to ultimately lose everything important in her life? .

To go into the draw for this book, you need to leave a comment and tell me something important about Katherine Howell. Your information should not repeat anything from this blog post, or from comments left prior to yours.

The competition is open world-wide, the only proviso being that if the winner comes from outside Australia postage cost will determine whether the book is delivered by surface mail or air mail.
