Flash fiction contest winners get prizes, usually a book from my shelves that I've read and liked a lot.  

For this week's contest one of the winners mentioned she'd liked Bruce Borgos' The Bitter Past.


I heard about The Peacock and The Sparrow by way of Bruce's newsletter. His comments made me want to read it so off I swam to the bookstore and got a copy.

And Bruce was oh-so-right!

This book is amazing.

Very much NOT the usual kind of spy novel (which I love!) and so beautifully written that some of the sentences just made me stop reading to catch my breath.

So it seemed a perfect circle to send the book to one of Bruce's new fans, and one of our contest winners. 

Now, off to the post office to get this in the mail.

I was just reading the back blurb on this book the other day, but The Hub was in a hurry so I left it in the shop. I might need to go back solo!

Loved The Bitter Past. Fantastic book. I’m definitely putting this on my TBR list.
