Following the success of previous book groups with bestselling authors Milly Johnson, Mike Craven, Brian Bilston, Ellie Wood and many more, Bookends and The Tipsy Filly are bringing together books and cocktails once more for a reading group with actress and writer Tracy Whitwell to discuss The Accidental Medium, the first novel in a hilarious new series.
Tanz is a wine-loving, straight-talking, once-successful TV actress from Gateshead, whose career has shrivelled like an antique walnut. She is still grieving for her friend Frank, who died in a car crash three years ago, and she has to find a normal job in London to fund her cocktail habit.
When she starts work in a ‘new age’ shop, Tanz suddenly discovers that the voices she’s hearing in her head are real, not the first signs of madness, and that she can give people ‘messages’ from beyond the grave. Alarmed, she confronts her little mam and discovers she is from a long line of psychic mediums. Despite an exciting new avenue of life opening up to Tanz, darkness isn’t far away and all too soon there’s murder in the air.
