Halfway House – Helen Fitzgerald | Blog Tour | #BookGiveaway | @OrendaBooks @fitzhelen @RandomTTours

My thanks to Anne of Random Things Tours for the tour invitation. Halfway House is published by Orenda Books in ebook, audio and paperback formats (18 January 2024). For my turn today I am delighted to offer a giveaway of a paperback copy to one UK entrant.

They`re the housemates from Hell…

When her disastrous Australian love affair ends, Lou O´Dowd heads to Edinburgh for a fresh start, moving in with her cousin, and preparing for the only job she can find … working at a halfway house for very high-risk offenders.

Two killers, a celebrity paedophile and a paranoid coke dealer – all out on parole and all sharing their outwardly elegant Edinburgh townhouse with rookie night-worker Lou…

And instead of finding some meaning and purpose to her life, she finds herself trapped in a terrifying game of cat and mouse where she stands to lose everything – including her life.

Slick, darkly funny and nerve-janglingly tense, Halfway House is both a breathtaking thriller and an unapologetic reminder never to corner a desperate woman…

Sorry but this is open to UK entrants only.


As part of the blog tour I’m delighted to offer a paperback copy of Halfway House to one winner. The winner will be selected at random via Rafflecopter from all valid entries and will be notified by email and/or X. If no response is received within 7 days then I reserve the right to select an alternative winner.

Open to entrants aged 18 or over in the UK.

Any personal data given as part of the competition entry is used for this purpose only and will not be shared with third parties with the exception of the winner’s details. This will passed to the tour organiser and publisher for fulfilment of the prize, after which time I will delete the data I hold.

My Reading Corner is not responsible for dispatch or delivery of the prize.

Good luck to everyone entering the giveaway! 😄
