Busy day today! I am very excited to share an extract of The New Girl by Ingrid Alexandra. The book sounds BRILLIANT!
Thank you to Avon UK for inviting me to be part of this tour!
You’ve only just met.
But she already knows you so well.
When Rachel moves into the spare room in Mary’s flat, everyone is quick to jump to the conclusion that there’s something strange about her. Everyone apart from Mary.
And when Rachel starts sleepwalking, everyone’s fears grow. But there’s something about the new girl that Mary can’t help but trust, and having recently escaped a toxic relationship, she needs the support.
Rachel becomes a friend and an ally, and Mary soon discovers that they have more in common than she ever could have imagined.
In fact, Rachel seems to know more about Mary than she knows about herself…

Give me one name. One person. And I will make them disappear . . .
When Sarah rescues a young girl in trouble, she expects nothing in return. But her act of bravery puts a powerful and dangerous man in her debt. He lives by his own brutal code, and all debts must be repaid – in the only way he knows how.
He offers Sarah a way to solve a desperate situation with her intolerable boss. A once-in-a-lifetime deal that will make all her problems disappear.
No consequences. No comeback. No chance of being found out.
All it takes is a 29 second phone call.
Because everyone has a name to give. Don’t they?

It feels like I’ve just arrived and I’ve been there forever at the same time. Weird thing!
So … What happened to me this week? (This is the moment I thank the Calendar app on my Mac because my brain can’t register everything!)

I am breaking my own rule. I am reviewing an Orenda Books novel. Why? Because I loved it to pieces. Also, it feels so good to review without a deadline! I just read, wrote, and now I am posting. And it feels right to start the summer holiday on a beach in Finland!
Thank you Orenda Books for feeding me with the most extraordinary novels and for being responsible for my lack of sleep.
This review is my unbiased thank you to the publisher and the author.

Publisher: Orenda Books
Format: uncorrected proof
Number of pages: 300
Sex, lies and ill-fitting swimwear … Sun Protection Factor 100
Jan Nyman, the ace detective of the covert operations unit of the National Central Police, is sent to a sleepy seaside town to investigate a mysterious death. Nyman arrives in the town dominated by a bizarre holiday village – the ‘hottest beach in Finland’. The suspect: Olivia Koski, who has only recently returned to her old hometown. The mission: find out what happened, by any means necessary.
With a nod to Fargo, and dark noir, Palm Beach, Finland is both a page-turning thriller and a black comedy about lust for money, fleeing dreams and people struggling at turning points in their lives – chasing their fantasies regardless of reason.

I know! I’m cheating! But the thing is there are not enough hours in the day! (We all hate this universal fact, don’t we?) To avoid posting the longest Wrap-Up post later, here are what I have been doing these past two weeks!

Sometimes I write. I don’t pretend to be good at it, I just want to put words on emotions to let them go. I feel tired today, and thinking of my friends presenting their thesis is part of the reason this Tuesday is a little harder than every other one. So for the first time, I am sharing something I wrote. This is not a review. Neither a post about anxiety and how I deal with it. I don’t even know what it is. But it is how I feel today.
I am not looking for sympathy or whatever, I just have a feeling sharing, putting it out of my mind and my laptop folder will help me move forward. Everything passes.
So here it is.
