**Cover Reveal** The Lion Tamer Who Lost by Louise Beech @OrendaBooks @LouiseWriter

Today I am absolutely over the moon to be bringing you an exclusive reveal for Orenda. Yes, today is the day we get to see the book cover for the hotly anticipated new book by Louise Beech! When I got the email asking me to take part I got quite emotional which seems to be a regular occurrence for me when it comes to this wonderful writer! When I went to the Orenda Roadshow recently in Liverpool, Louise read from her book Maria in the Moon which I read and reviewed last year HERE. It’s a stunning book, just so beautifully written and when Louise read from it, she brought out some very unexpected emotions in me!! I have to admit to being unable to stop the tears from flowing as she brought the pain that radiated from Catherine-Maria to life, lifting her off the page as though she were there in the room with us.

So before I show you the cover let me tell you a little more about The Lion Tamer Who Lost.

About this book…

Long ago Andrew made a childhood wish. One he has always kept in a silver box with a too-big lid that falls off. When it finally comes true, he wishes it hadn’t…

Long ago Ben dreamt of going to Africa to volunteer at a lion reserve. When he finally goes there, it isn’t for the reasons he imagined…

Ben and Andrew keep meeting where they least expect. Some collisions are by design, but are they for a reason? Ben’s father would disown him for his relationship with Andrew, so they must hide it. Andrew is determined to make things work, but secrets from his past threaten to ruin everything…

Ben escapes to Zimbabwe to fulfil his lifelong ambition. But will he ever return to England? To Andrew?

To the truth?

A dark and poignant drama, The Lion Tamer Who Lost  is also a mesmerisingly beautiful love story, with a tragic heart…

Doesn’t that sound amazing? And now I’m going to keep you hanging a little longer while I tell you more about Louise Beech!

Meet the author…

Louise Beech is an exceptional literary talent, whose debut novel How To Be Brave was a Guardian Readers’ Choice for 2015. Her next book, The Mountain in My Shoe  was shortlisted for Not the Booker Prize. Maria in the Moon was compared to Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, and widely reviewed. All three books have been number one on Kindle, Audible and Kobo in USA/UK/AU. She regularly writes travel pieces for the Hull Daily Mail, where she was a columnist for ten years. Her short fiction has won the Glass Woman Prize, the Eric Hoffer Award for Prose, and the Aesthetica Creative Works competition, as well as shortlisting for the Bridport Prize twice and being published in a variety of UK magazines. Louise lives with her husband and children on the outskirts of Hull – the UK’s 2017 City of Culture – and loves her job as a Front of House Usher at Hull Truck Theatre, where her first play was performed in 2012.

Ok so I think you’ve been patient enough. Here’s what you’ve all been waiting for!!!

And now for the cover…

Isn’t that just perfect?! The winning team of Karen Sullivan of Orenda Books and author Louise Beech is a match made in literary heaven so I can’t wait to read and review The Lion Tamer Who Lost and then share it with you all once again.

If you want to buy the paperback version so that you have this gorgeous cover on your bookshelf, it will be available to buy from 28th September 2018.

But if you can’t wait till then, the ebook will be out in July!

I am a Norfolk girl living in leafy Cheshire with my grumpy Scotsman. A mum and nana who lives for my family but who is also addicted to reading (and Marmite!) I will read almost anything but my preferred genres to review are psychological thrillers, crime procedural novels or women's fiction. My kindle is my life but I also have a substantial bookshelf in my cosy reading room where I can go to escape the stresses of family life with plenty of tea and chocolate. I am a member of netgalley and bookbridg. I review on Amazon, where I'm a Top 500 reviewer, and Goodreads. You can always find me over on Twitter @jocatrobertson for any review requests.
