The TripFiction Book Club reading Red Snow by Will Dean, set in Sweden

30th November 2018

For those TripFiction fans who don’t already know, we have a TripFiction Book Club that we kicked off back in March 2017 with a romantic journey to beautiful Sardinia, along with author Rosanna Ley and her vivid characters.

Head over to the separate #TFBookClub page or find us on social media to hear about the latest book we’re reading. This is the place where we all meet to read and exchange views on location-based novels of interest. Every two months we select a book, give out a number of paperback copies (UK only) and digital copies for those who prefer that format, and for those who are outside the UK , and start the dialogue. It’s a great way to read a good book in the company of others, and to join in the discussions.

Our first eleven outings for the #TFBookClub have seen us travel the world, seeing different locations through the eyes of authors:

  • We have so far been #OnLiteraryLocation in SARDINIA with Rosanna Ley’s The Little Theatre By The Sea 
  • We have explored the sense of history in PRAGUE, reading Prague Nights by Benjamin Black
  • We have been on a real adventure to CENTRAL AMERICA with Maile Meloy’s Do Not Become Alarmed 
  • We have been immersed in an intense relationship between two female writers in Exquisite by Sarah Stovell, set in NORTHUMBERLAND and the LAKE DISTRICT,
  • We have met Harriet Steel’s Inspector de Silva in 1930s CEYLON (now SRI LANKA), experiencing Trouble in Nuala
  • We have time-travelled to exotic GRANADA in historic ANDALUCIA SPAIN with Jane Johnson’s Court of Lions
  • We have dived into the beautiful CYCLADES in GREECE with Hannah Fielding’s Aphrodite’s Tears
  • We have returned to CEYLON (now SRI LANKA) with The Sapphire Widow by Dinah Jefferies
  • We have gone west to CORNWALL with One Cornish Summer by Liz Fenwick
  • We travelled to NORWAYSCOTLAND and FRANCE with The Sixteen Trees of the Somme by Lars Mytting 
  • And most recently we were in wintry WALES with dark crime thriller Halfway by B. E. Jones

And in January and February, join us in SWEDEN for an ice-cold crime thriller by Will Dean. For more information click on the #TFBookClub link (apply here by 10th December for a copy).

    I was so pleased to receive a copy of Red Snow and anticipation was high-however it wasn’t always plain sailing with this one. The atmosphere and description of the unimaginable cold was second to none-a superb capture too of the claustrophobic small town feeling. However having not read the previous book in this series it took some time for me to fathom who was who and what Tuva’s role in the book was. I found the first third of Red Snow less than all engaging but I never give up on a book (unless it’s poor writing-and this certainly wasn’t that) so persevered with it. I warmed to the characters eventually and my interest became piqued for the outcome. It’s an ambitious book with a lot to recommend it but not for me a five star review-three/four maybe. Thanks to Trip Fiction for the stunning looking advanced copy.

      Loved it! I could really feel the cold while I was reading it – the descriptions of the weather and the small town are excellent.
      I like the fact that the end of one chapter runs straight in to the next and a chapter always seems to have an exciting ending: you have to urgently carry on reading.
      I hadn’t read the previous book and it also took me a while to work out exactly what Tuva was like. She is a very likeable character.

    I seem to have missed the last 3 book club reads, somehow!
    Would love the chance to read this one, Sweden is somewhere I’d like to visit (but it’s very expensive apparently, so will have to visit vicariously!)
    If I’m lucky enough to get a copy, I’d like a paper copy if possible, please!
