To celebrate the release of Lucy Foley’s captivating new novel The Invitation

To celebrate the release of Lucy Foley’s captivating new novel The Invitation, we’re inviting one lucky reader on a wonderful weekend break to the sun-kissed shores of Côte d’Azur.

You could be spending two unforgettable nights at a beautiful four-star hotel in the heart of the stylish city of Cannes, with breakfast included. We’ll also throw in a copy of The Invitation for you to read while you’re relaxing in the sunshine.

The prize includes £100 to put towards your flights. Five runners up will also win a copy of the book.

About the book:

Rome, the 1950s. One fateful night, Hal Jacobs meets Stella, a beautiful society darling from New York. To Hal, flailing in the post-war darkness, she’s a point of light. They’re from different worlds, but both trying and failing to carve out a new life.

Stella vanishes all too quickly, until a curious invitation from an Italian Contessa reels her back into Hal’s world. They join the Contessa’s collection of luminaries on a yacht headed for Cannes Film Festival.

The scene on board is a fiction – scars from the war can be hidden yet not healed. Everyone is hiding a dark history, but Stella’s secrets run the deepest. Compelled by her fragile beauty, Hal is determined to bring back the girl she once was, the girl who’s been confined to history.

The Invitation is an epic love story that will transport you from the glamour of the Italian Riviera, to the darkness of war-torn Spain, and to a golden – if rather haunted – time.
