  • Look what the post man brought. Must not get distracted from work....... @readinginheelsuk
  • “A mysterious page-turner. Some parts felt predictable (as a result of the blurb on the back of the book!) but some definitely were not. I really enjoyed the suspense, wondering what L would do next.”
  • “Was excited to receive my first box, and interested to see what my first book would be. I'd not heard of 'Based On A True Story' before, but started it the day after receiving it, and finished it within four days. I enjoyed it, though there were elements that I found frustrating. For instance, referring to the 'nemesis' as 'L' throughout - why not give her full name? And was she the Lea referred to towards the end, in the audience? It was slightly predictable, as many other books have been written with this premise, but I enjoyed it overall. Probably not the type of book I would usually read, so it was good to read something different. Loved the rest of the box too!!”
  • “Hi, how is everyone finding the book? I'm about two thirds through. I want to keep reading to find out what happens but am finding L's manipulative behaviour predictable, so far!”
  • “Interesting premise, although not entirely groundbreaking, and a reasonable execution of it. I found the characters a little frustrating and worked out quite early on what was going on, however it kept me happily turning pages till the very end. ”
  • “Finished the book in less than 4 days! A beautifully written, gripping and compelling book! I loved the 'slow burning' build up of the plot; the clever confusion; my mind was filled with questions! I couldn't put this book down, after the last page - I literally lost my marbles!!! I have so many questions!!!!! All in all, this book is a work of art. I am absolutely mesmerized! Definitely going to purchase Delphine's other books! ”

  • So excited! Post! What’s more a mystery, gift wrapped box as my first ‘online book club’ subscription’s arrived. Luckily I just finished my last book, Atwood’s poignant The Handmaid’s Tale, so I can get cracking immediately with Based On A True Story. Not sure the sample chocolate, tea or other goodies will make it to bedtime though... Wish I’d thought of this! @readinginheelsuk
  • Excited to tuck into this fab box by @readinginheelsuk 😀
  • “One of the best books I’ve ever read! Finished it in one city, literally could not put it down!”
