#BlogTour #BookReview & #Giveaway - Maria In The Moon by Louise Beech

A stunning, beautifully written psychological thriller by the critically acclaimed author of How To Be Brave and The Mountain in My Shoe.
Thirty-two-year-old Catherine Hope has a great memory. But she can't remember everything. She can't remember her ninth year. She can't remember when her insomnia started. And she can't remember why everyone stopped calling her Catherine-Maria.

With a promiscuous past, and licking her wounds after a painful breakup, Catherine wonders why she resists anything approaching real love. But when she loses her home to the devastating deluge of 2007 and volunteers at Flood Crisis, a devastating memory emerges... and changes everything.
Dark, poignant and deeply moving, Maria in the Moon is an examination of the nature of memory and truth, and the defences we build to protect ourselves, when we can no longer hide...

Review Policy

Thank you for taking the time to read my review policy, I am very happy to review books on request and will accept submissions from publishers and authors. I prefer print books where possible but will also gladly read ebooks. I love crime fiction and SFF but also enjoy YA, historical fiction and some non-fiction, particularly memoirs. I'm also willing to read outside my preferred genres should the blurb entice me! I enjoy sharing books with my youngest daughter so I can also review books aimed at the 9-13 year old market, she prefers exciting adventure and/or fantasy stories with strong protagonists. I occasionally read romance but no erotica please.
I usually have several books lined up so if you would like a book reviewed by a certain date I will require at least a month's notice. Blogging about books is a hobby I am passionate about but I also have a job and a family so I may not be able to accept all requests.
I love taking part in blog tours and can usually provide a review but am also happy to feature guest posts or to host a Q&A with the author.
My reviews are always honest but I prefer not to post negative reviews so if your book is not for me I will contact you to explain this. I believe all books have their audience and sometimes I'm just not it! I will never ask for any payment for my reviews and I am not part of any affiliate program.
I can be contacted through the form in the sidebar on the home page of this blog, via email at hairpastafrecklebookreviews@gmail.com or via @karlou on Twitter.
