Take Your Mum to West Cork with Sam Blake for Mother’s Day

Share this:

We can’t travel this Mother’s Day, but you can give your Mum something that will transport her to a mysterious country house hotel in West Cork called Hare’s Landing…

And this Mother’s Day, Sam will write your mum a special note that you can enclose with your gift – just contact her at with your proof of purchase and she’ll pop a (free) signed, author exclusive card (see the image below) into the post with your message to your Mum.

What people are saying about The Dark Room:

Blake… has a wonderful gift for description, ensuring the reader can picture every scene in exquisite detail. Her atmospheric depiction of West Cork triumphs in this novel, along with the wonderful portrayal of Rachel’s dog – a German Shepherd called Jasper who is pivotal to helping them with their investigations.

Sunday Independent

From creepy portraits whose eyes follow you around to hidden love letters, long-buried bodies and illicit affairs, The Dark Room is an infectious blend of Agatha Christie-esque murder mystery (a fact the characters playfully allude to) and Gothic whodunnit with a hint of supernatural chiller. It’s also deliciously good fun.
