I am thrilled, honoured, excited and rather smug to be EXCLUSIVELY revealing the new cover for John’s book THE VACATION which is being published by Pan Macmillan on 24th June 2021.
Now before you all go off and pre-order this book I have to advise the die-hard, obsessive groupies that this is not a NEW book. The Vacation is actually John’s second self-published book originally titled “Welcome to Wherever You Are” and as this was my first cameo role, it’s a pretty significant book for me and John, especially as those who follow my blog or are a member of THE Book Club on Facebook will know that I am John’s official online Wife and his muse and without me, he would be NOTHING.
Back to the book: The lovely people at Pan Macmillan have given the book a lick of paint, a minor edit, a cracking new title and a stunning new cover, so if like me you collect the John Marrs entire back catalogue, you can add this book to your bookcase.
About the book:
How far would you run to escape your past?
Venice Beach, Los Angeles. A paradise on earth.
Tourists flock to the golden coast and the promise of Hollywood.
But for eight strangers at a beach front hostel, there is far more on their mind than an extended vacation.
All of them are running from something. And they all have secrets they’d kill to keep…
I have asked some Marrs Groupies at THE Book Club to give me some quotes for his books and I was inundated with volunteers, so here is a selection of those quotes.
Lynne Kelly – “Impossible to put down with compelling characters and twists that keep you guessing to the end”
Sherry Rebock – “I adore John Marrs and don’t think I’ve ever given him less than 5/5 on a book”
Pam Rogers – “John Marrs’ books NEVER disappoint”
Joni Mielke – “Brilliantly written, [his] books are as compelling as they are complex, slowly revealing the truth behind every action – like so many puzzle pieces falling into place.”
Mandy Wray – “Taking dark and twisty to a whole new level, John Marrs has a way of creating a deadly character that you can’t help but like, not sure what that says about me!”
Natasha Cooper – “Every single John Marrs books have had me gripped from the beginning to end. Alongside many sleepless nights because I couldn’t put the books down! – honestly, I’m unable to say that about any other author!”
Carolyn Schoeman – “Marrs creates the perfect escape from reality, then brings you back down to earth with a bump!”
Elaine Binder – “You can’t go wrong with a John Marrs book. They are all fantastic.”
Becca Katherine – “I discovered John Marrs a couple of years ago when I read The One which was amazing. Since then I have read all his other books and find them totally gripping. He’s my absolute favourite author and I don’t even need to read the blurb on his books anymore before I buy as I know I will love them!!”
Michele Young – “John Marrs is the master of a new genre – the sickological thriller. With so many seemingly unrelated characters at the start of his books, whose stories all come together to form a thrilling conclusion, his books are unputdownable and not to be missed”
Jodi Lancaster – “John Marrs is a fantastic author. Each story is a stand alone yet each one grabs you and drags you in until your exhausted as it’s been another one sitting read! I’m so excited that Welcome to Wherever You Are is being republished as this one had to be my favourite of them all. If you haven’t yet been introduced to John Marrs this is a fantastic place to start.”
Caroline Cuddy – “One of very few authors I can blame for keeping me up until 3 or 4am. I love that John Marrs doesn’t just stick to one genre, his subject matter and characters are eclectic and most importantly he keeps you wanting to turn that next page”
Deirdre O Grady – “Home is, a John Marrs book, a glass of bubbly and a do not disturb sign”
