Whilst technology can be great, it’s also important to have time away from it and make time for ourselves. The two places we think provide the best opportunity for just that are between the pages of a book and in a spa. Fortunately, the two go perfectly together, making a spa break the perfect time to tune out and reignite the senses by picking up a good book. That’s why Spabreaks.com launched the Relax and Read Book Club, bringing new meaning to the term R&R.
The Relax and Read Book Club will give you the chance to discover new books, learn about the authors, share your opinions and really escape into an inspiring world of literature. This month, we start by interviewing Denise Mina, multiple award-winning author of Conviction, published by Penguin Random House.
It’s just a normal morning when Anna’s husband announces that he’s leaving her for her best friend and taking their two daughters with him.
With her safe, comfortable world shattered, Anna distracts herself with someone else’s story: a true-crime podcast. That is until she recognises the name of one of the victims and becomes convinced that only she knows what really happened.
With nothing left to lose, she throws herself into investigating the case. But little does she know, her past and present lives are about to collide, sending everything she has worked so hard to achieve into freefall.
“A twisting, darkly comic, thrill-a-minute ride across Europe. If you loved Killing Eve, you’ll devour Conviction”– Erin Kelly

I’d like to think I’d be a sculptor but I’d probably be a bad lawyer
I don’t read them because I only remember the negative criticism so it’s not that useful. I don’t often read them but I don’t mind what anyone says as long as its honest and not mean.
To Kill a Mockingbird. I didn’t read until I was about nine and it was the first book that really moved me.
Energise! I’m an introvert and find being lost in my own head incredibly comfortable.
