Drum roll please! The signed book in this box will be... THE LONG CALL BY ANN CLEEVES

I am beyond excited to reveal the theme for our very first MONTHLY book box is...

'there's a new Detective in Devon'

now, usually I plan to leave it at that and let you use your own detective skills to work out the book from the theme or just enjoy the surprise. BUT since this is the very first box (and I am bursting with excitement) I have revealed the book too.


The Long Call by Ann Cleeves

Ann Cleeves is one of the nation's favourite authors and I am so pleased to have The Long Call as the book to start our monthly service. Ann is delighted to be our inaugural monthly author and is signing our copies and giving us an exclusive interview.

Even if you haven't read her books, you will no doubt be familiar with her characters from current TV adaptations. BBC's Shetland series and ITV's Vera were created by Ann Cleeves and are based on her novels.

The Long Call is the first in a new series set in North Devon where Ann grew up. It introduces my new favourite copper, DI Matthew Venn as he investigates the death of a volunteer at a multi-use community centre. This novel is as much about the characters as the investigation and Venn struggles with conflicting emotions as it brings him back in contact with the community of his estranged family.

Exclusive goodies too...

If that isn't exciting enough for you, I am also working with fantastic artisans on exclusive goodies inspired by the book that will make this book box even more special.

Whether you are already a fan or new to her work, I just know you are going to love this book and won't want to miss out on this box.
