Free extract: AMY SNOW by Tracy Rees

Okay, okay, so it’s only November. But this gorgeous Christmas edition of AMY SNOW by Tracy Rees has got us feeling all festive over at Bookends HQ!

Earlier this year, Tracy won the Richard and Judy search for a Bestseller competition and Quercus Books published Amy Snow in April. The book received some fantastic reviews thanks to Tracy’s fresh, original and authentic writing and her wonderfully feisty heroine, and has now been re-released with a sparkling Christmas jacket and additional Christmassy content.

Amy Snow is as compulsive as it is heart-warning, and is the perfect bookish-gift to treat yourselves to this Christmas. And because we’re a generous bunch over at Bookends, we thought we’d give you a free extract to sink your teeth into, just don’t blame us when you’re left wanting more…

Abandoned on a bank of snow as a baby, Amy is taken in at nearby Hatville Court.

But the masters and servants of the grand estate prove cold and unwelcoming.

Amy’s only friend and ally is the sparkling young heiress Aurelia Vennaway.

So when Aurelia tragically dies young, Amy is devastated. But Aurelia leaves Amy one last gift.

A bundle of letters with a coded key.

A treasure hunt that only Amy can follow.

A life-changing discovery awaits . . . if only she can unlock the secret.
