‘We tell stories in order to live,’ or so said Joan Didion.

Even if the stories are as difficult to write as they are to read, they hold the power to change your worldview. They give you strength, and evoke thoughts that you never knew existed. Stories inherently have the power to make you feel less isolated; a voice of a true friend that reverberates your feelings in this void of loneliness called the world.

With a theme like sexual assault, this story can be triggering and is not an easy read. But we’ve put together this giveaway to keep you company and comfort you as you take your time reading this book.

“Literature has such power to evoke feelings, responses, passions. It gives others the opportunity to see something from another perspective and to realize that this is important. It’s important not to shame. It’s important to know when to listen. It’s important to know when to speak up.” – Deanna Cameron


What You Can Win

Lavazza Classico Ground Coffee to keep you up all night reading

Wearable Blanket to keep you warm and fuzzy

True Crime Coffee Mug for your coffee

About the Book

Golden boy Griffin Tomlin is found dead, floating in his pool, the morning after his family’s Labor Day party, and neighbor Emily Porterfield is arrested for his murder. No one knows why she killed him, except for her younger sister, Clara. The secrets behind What Happened That Night unravel in dual timelines:

In the present, Clara struggles with the aftermath of the murder—questions and distrust from her friends, denial from her parents, and visits to her sister in jail. And amidst all of that, another body is discovered that could be connected.

In flashback, the events that brought Clara, Griffin, and Emily together and that led to his death are revealed—events that involve a crush, an obsession, and a shocking twist.

A female American spy in Nazi-occupied France finds purpose behind enemy lines in a novel of unparalleled danger, love, and daring by the Amazon Charts bestselling author of The Beantown Girls.

Anna Cavanaugh is a restless young widow and brilliant French teacher at an all-girls school in Washington, DC. Everything changes when she’s recruited into the Office of Strategic Services by family friend and legendary WWI hero Major General William Donovan.

Donovan has faith in her—and in all his “glorious amateurs” who are becoming Anna’s fast friends: Maggie, Anna’s down-to-earth mentor; Irene, who’s struggling to find support from her husband for her clandestine life; and Julia, a cheerful OSS liaison. But the more Anna learns about the organization’s secret missions, the more she longs to be stationed abroad. Then comes the opportunity: go undercover as a spy in the French Resistance to help steal critical intelligence that could ultimately turn the tide of the war.

Dispatched behind enemy lines and in constant danger, Anna is filled with adrenaline, passion, and fear. She’s driven to make a difference—for her country and for herself. Whatever the risk, she’s willing to take it to help liberate France from the shadows of occupation and to free herself from the shadows of her former life.



Jane Healey shares a home north of Boston with her husband, two daughters, and two cats. When she’s not writing historical fiction, she enjoys running, reading, cooking, and going to the beach.
