Just last week we celebrated the publication day of Emily Critchley‘s debut adult novel, One Puzzling Afternoon, which follows pensioner Edie as she tries to recall and unravel a mystery from her youth before her memory disappears for good.

This week, we are delighted to announce that the novel has been chosen as the Independent’s Fiction Book of the Month for June. As part of the exciting news, Emily will be taking part in an Instagram takeover with @booksaremybag, touring Indie bookshops around the UK and celebrating by offering signed copies of the book to readers.

Huge congratulations Emily on this wonderful news!
