Book Mail

I love getting books in the post, I’m getting a surprise title once a month at the moment thanks to my New Books Magazine subscription and I was lucky enough recently to receive an advance reader copy of Ann Cleeves new book as well.

This months New Books choice was a YA novel. I wasn’t aware of this one before receiving it but it sounds good. The cover is beautiful as well all gold and sparkly.

I can feel it swimming through my veins like glitter … it’s liquid gold.

When socialite Lexi Volkov almost overdoses, she thinks she’s hit rock bottom. She’s wrong. Rock bottom is when she’s forced into an exclusive rehab facility.

From there, the only way is up for Lexi and her fellow inmates, including the mysterious Brady. As she faces her demons, Lexi realises love is the most powerful drug of all … 

It’s a dirty business getting clean …

With my library hat on I also received a copy of The Long Call by Ann Cleeves. This is the start of a brand new series and I’m excited to give it a read.

In North Devon, where two rivers converge and run into the sea, Detective Matthew Venn stands outside the church as his father’s funeral takes place. Once loved and cherished, the day Matthew left the strict evangelical community he grew up in, he lost his family too.

Now, as he turns and walks away again, he receives a call from one of his team. A body has been found on the beach nearby: a man with a tattoo of an albatross on his neck, stabbed to death.

The case calls Matthew back into the community he thought he had left behind, as deadly secrets hidden at its heart are revealed, and his past and present collide.
