Miss Fox is Eliza’s new piano teacher. Eliza is Martha and Clive’s daughter. Clive and Miss Fox have a history which Clive is determined his family must not know about. Flashback to when they were all teenagers and we, the reader, are told the secret. When it all breaks into their present lives the repercussions are devastating. It is a simple tale but the jumping back and forth between the present tense and the past demands your concentration.

If you like Olivia Glazebrook you might also like to read books by Maggie O’Farrell, Leane Moriarty and Araminta Hall.

Synopsis

Never Mind Miss Fox by Olivia Glazebrook

Clive and Martha have been together since they met at university; they have a young daughter, Eliza. Their marriage appears serene and content but when Eliza's adored new piano teacher turns out to be a woman from Clive and Martha's past, the enigmatic Eliot Fox, Clive becomes desperate to keep Eliot - and what she knows - away from his family.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

It has opened my eyes to different authors and genres. Just log on and try, you will be surprised and not want for reading material again.

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.
