Today I am SUPER EXCITED to share with you my Christmas Q&A with Lisa Dickenson, author extraordinaire.

So here we go!

What drink says Christmas for you?

Lisa:  Baileeeyyyyyyys – it’s the best best best and I would like some now, please.
 
Trish:  I'm a Baileys girl! But traditionally, it's always been eggnog (non - alcoholic).
 
Q: What's your most treasures Christmas gift you ever received?
 
Lisa:  That’s a hard one… Does the engagement ring I got a week before Christmas in 2010 count? Yes, yes it does!
 
Trish:  The flowered blanket my Mum crocheted and gave me the last Xmas before she passed. It's gorgeous and I love it!
 
Q: What's your fave festive song?
 
Lisa:  So many!  I love Last Christmas by Wham for it’s wonderful cheese-factor.
 
Trish: O Holy Night sung by Reba McEntire. Just beautiful and gives me goosebumps.
 
Q: What’s your fave movie to watch on Christmas Eve?
 
Lisa: It's A Wonderful Life - just a perfect film to curl up with the night before Christmas...
 
Trish: A Charlie Brown Christmas. Have watched it every year since I was tiny and it isn't Christmas without it!
 
Q:  What Christmas book do you wish you’d written?
 
Lisa:  A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens – to me, this is the ultimate Christmas story.
 
Trish: The Twelve Dates of Christmas! Seriously, it's so funny and festive and cute! I adore it!!
 
Q:  How do you like your Christmas jumpers?
 
Lisa:  As tacky and 3D and garishly-coloured as possible, preferably with advent calendar windows sewn in and bells dangling off the arms.
 
Trish: On someone else... I love when other people where them but it's not something I'll ever wear! I'll wear Christmas socks and even my Muppets Merry Kissmas undies, but not ever a Christmas jumper! Bah Humbug!!
 

That was so much fun! Thanks so much, Lisa! The Twelve Dates of Christmas is out in PAPERBACK on 22nd October from Little Brown and I urge you to buy it! It's brilliant!!

What They Say:
The boy studied the bruise turning yellow at the base of his neck. With quick fingers his mother tightened his tie, and pulled his collar high above it. Her eyes alone said, We will not speak of this...

Years later, a man is found shot dead in a local park. On his phone is a draft text: I can’t keep this secret any longer. The recipient is unnamed.

Detective Robyn Carter knows this secret is the key to the case, but his friends and family don’t offer any clues, and all her team have to go on is a size-ten footprint. 

Then a nurse is found in a pool of blood at the bottom of her staircase, and a seemingly insignificant detail in her friend’s statement makes Robyn wonder: are the two bodies connected, and has the killer only just begun?

When another body confirms Robyn’s worst fears, she realises she’s in a race against time to stop the killer before they strike again. But just as she thinks she’s closing in, …

Welcome to my stop on the Blog blitz for the fabulous third Instalment in the DI Robyn Carter series!


What They Say:

One girl found dead. Another girl gone... Long shadows danced on the tin walls. Inside the trunk lay Carrie Miller, wrapped in plastic, arms folded across her ribcage, lips sealed tight forever... When a girl’s body is found at a Midlands storage unit, it is too decomposed for Detective Robyn Carter to read the signs left by the killer. No one knows the woman in blue who rented the unit; her hire van can’t be traced. But as the leads run dry another body is uncovered.

Can she find the sickest individual she has ever faced, before it’…
