Ad – review. I was sent a copy of this book for review purposes and all thoughts are my own.

Today I am involved in the book tour for The Winter's Sleep by Monica Caffeeky. Monica Cafferky worked as a journalist for national newspapers and magazines for over 20 years before turning her hand to fiction with the supernatural thriller The Winter’s Sleep. The inspiration for her debut novel, set in Yorkshire and the North East coast, came from growing up in a haunted house in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. Previously, Monica co-authored three self-help books (published by Little Brown), which have been translated into several languages including: Japanese, Norwegian and Czech. Monica is a Fellow of the Thomson Reuters Foundation and for five years was a visiting lecturer in journalism. Monica lives in Yorkshire.  

About the book 
A fast-paced thriller with a supernatural twist, The Winter’s Sleep takes the reader on a breathtaking ride from Leeds to the Yorkshire coast in a tale of ghosts, betrayal and fraud.

A handsome husband. A beautiful home. A job she loves.
Yet Brigid Raven is drowning in debts and there’s only one way out.
Fake her death and walk away from everything she’s struggled so hard to build.
Can she pull off her new identity? How will she survive on the run?
But Brigid has another secret. She can see the dead and now they won’t leave her alone.

The Winter's Sleep is a thriller/drama that features supernatural elements. It's a very gripping and fast paced read that is easy to follow. I loved the characters especially Brigid who is both likeable and relatable. I would've liked more supernatural elements but even so its a brilliant read which is why I've given it 5 stars. I look forward to hopefully reading more from Monica Caffeeky in the future as this is a definite must read and only a debut too.
