MVL Book Club #7: The Diviners

It's been a long time since I suggested a book here on Mod Vintage Life.
I just don't have time to read these days....

But I was contacted by the promoters of this book asking if I'd like to read a preview copy
and offer up a copy for one of my readers to win also.

Here's a trailer for the book...

and a little about the book.

Do you believe there are ghosts and demons and Diviners among us?

Evie O'Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City--and she is pos-i-tute-ly ecstatic. It's 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.

Evie worries he'll discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.

As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfurled in the city that never sleeps. A young man named Memphis is caught between two worlds. A chorus girl named Theta is running from her past. A student named Jericho hides a shocking secret. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened....

Libba Bray’s New York Times bestselling Diviners is now in paperback.  And we hear there’s going to be a second book next August so stay tuned!


My plan was to have read the book by the time I posted this...but 

I just have not had the time. 

I did start reading it and it was enjoyable immediately. 

I'm looking forward to a quiet snowy day on the sofa to fully enjoy it.

Wouldn't you like to spend a snow day reading this book?

I was hooked when I read that it was about a flapper in the 1920's in New York City
solving a super natural crime!

I love period pieces set in the 1920s, so I think I'd probably love this book! Thank you for the giveaway.
