THE CURIOUS CASE OF MAGGIE MACBETH by STACEY MURRAY

 

the curious case

 

BLURB:

Sometimes you have to take the law into your own hands…

After losing her high-powered job in Hong Kong, forty-something widow and lawyer, Maggie Macbeth, turns up on the doorstep of her old sidekick, Cath, in the sleepy Peak District village of Archdale. A fish out of water, Maggie comes into conflict with everyone and everything – especially Cath’s awful friend, Tiggy – and rock bottom is just around the corner. But it turns out Maggie isn’t the only one in trouble. When a crisis hits the local community, Maggie has a choice: to give up on life, or go back to her legal roots and fight for justice. But can she save the day as well as herself?

This laugh-out loud debut novel shows that no battle is too big when you’ve got friends on your side.

 

A quick read. Lost a little bit of it’s flow in the middle but sweet enough. Full review coming up on March 3rd.  3 out of 5

Released in paperback March 5th by RedDoor

 

WE ARE ANIMALS BY TIM EWINS

we are animals

BLURB:

A cow looks out to sea, dreaming of a life that involves grass.

Jan is also looking out to sea. He’s in Goa, dreaming of the passport-thief who stole his heart (and his passport) forty-six years ago. Back then, fate kept bringing them together, but lately it seems to have given up.

Jan has not. In his long search he has accidentally held a whole town at imaginary gunpoint in Soviet Russia, stalked the proprietors of an international illegal lamp-trafficking scam and done his very best to avoid any kind of work involving the packing of fish. Now he thinks if he just waits, if he just does nothing at all, maybe fate will find it easier to reunite them.

His story spans fifty-four years, ten countries, two imperfect criminals (and one rather perfect one), twenty-two different animals and an annoying teenager who just…

His story spans fifty-four years, ten countries, two imperfect criminals (and one rather perfect one), twenty-two different animals and an annoying teenager who just…

Will…

Not…

Leave.

But maybe an annoying teenager is exactly what Jan needs to help him find the missing thief?

Featuring a menagerie of creatures, each with its own story to tell, We Are Animals is a quirky, heart-warming tale of lost love, unlikely friendships and the certainty of fate (or lack thereof).

I’ve just finished this.  What a quirky read!  Not too long, at 250 pages, and it had me chuckling out loud at some parts.  It reminded me a little bit of A Man Called Ove.  Full review coming up on March 6th as part of the blog tour.

I’ve recently set up a book club, and our first meet up is this Sunday.  The first book we are going to read is this one, The Radium Girls, so have just started it in time for our first discussion as a group.

What will I be reading next?

 

TO KEEP YOU SAFE BY KATE BRADLEY

to keep you safe

I picked up a proof copy of this at Harrogate, last year, and am hopefully going to read this next.  Available as an EBook already, it’s out in paperback March 5th.

 

That’s my round up! Would love to hear what you’ve been reading.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
