I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

    Oh wow Olga. This sounds absolutely like a book I must read. I love your reviews. And quite honestly, parts of your review, and Andulucia (my bad on the spelling) reminds me of Paul Coelho’s The Alchemist! Thanks for sharing this book. (Oh, and I believe you put the wrong book image up) <3

    1. Olga Nunez Miret says:

      You’re right about the image! I’ll sort it out when I can get to the internet with my computer! It’s a lovely book, but publishers sometimes release them in different countries and formats at different times. Thanks for the warning!

      1. dgkaye says:

        Glad to help. And have put that book on ’email me when it’s available’ on Amazon. 🙂

        1. Olga Nunez Miret says:

          I look forward to reading what you think of it! <3

          1. dgkaye says:

            For sure! <3

    Lol, I’m back, it’s not for sale til March 2020?

      1. Yes, no, Pete, the cover thing was my mistake but I’ve managed to change it since. I think big publishing companies time their launches. Thanks for the comment and the clarification. I hope you get to read it. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. It’s a joy, Have a lovely week!

        Thanks Pete. I’m Canadian. And went to Amazon dot com and it says not available til March, how weird that is. 🙁

        1. Sorry about the US/Canada faux pas, Debby.
          I have slapped my own legs! 🙂 🙂

          1. dgkaye says:

            Arg, don’t get me started Pete, Amazon treats Canadian authors like we’re a 3rd world country. 🙁

          2. I remember Canadian tourists with Maple Leaf flags on their backpacks in London. Otherwise, we assumed they were American.
            The same deal applies with Australia and New Zealand. 🙂

          3. dgkaye says:

            Lol so funny. Growing up and when traveling to Europe, we were always told to put Canadian flags on our luggage and wear a pin with our flag on our clothes to not be mistaken for Americans. So funny you say that.

          4. It’s true! 🙂
            I just bought a Kindle copy from Amazon UK for £2.99, and have read page one. 🙂

            Arg! Maddening! Well. I just spoke to my bff in UK and asked her to buy me a copy she can bring with her when she visits in September 🙂

        After some investigation, it appears to me it’s only out in Hardcover in the UK and paperback and Kindle not available til next March. I went to my own bookseller page here in Canada and it doesn’t even come up. 🙁 I don’t care for hardcovers as they’re too heavy to read in bed, lol. I’m on the waitlist.

          I get ARC copies for NetGalley books sometimes right before they are published and sometimes plenty in advance. I tend to check and try to publish the review around the time of publication, and this time I think the publicist might have sent me a reminder, and with the great reviews I decided to read it. The other clue tends to be Amazon. If the book hasn’t been published yet, it does not allow you to post the review, and I had no problems with this one, but I only post in UK, Spain and .com, although many of the big books are published in hardback first. More time to catch up on reading! 🙂

          1. dgkaye says:

            So true Olga. But interesting that the book is for sale in UK, but on in North America. I’ve resolved the issue. My bff in the UK is going to buy the book and bring it to me in September when she visits. 🙂

  3. This does sound rather wonderful, I have to admit. I love the examples of the writing you featured.
    This will be going on my Wish List with Amazon.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. This sounds like a truly wonderful read, I’ll keep my eye out for release day!

    1. Olga Nunez Miret says:

      Thanks, Jacquie. Following the author is a good way to get notified of new releases, as you know, but from personal experience I know we can get many such notifications if we follow a lot of people.
      Happy reading and writing!

  5. This is an extraordinary review, Olga. Any book that impresses you so much has to be good. Wow. Of course it is mindful as always. Thanks for sharing your insights. Hugs!

    1. Olga Nunez Miret says:

      Thanks, Teagan. I hope you get a chance to read it at some point. I wish you an inspiring rest of the week! <3

    Love your review, Olga. This is my kind of book. Thank you for all the additions to my reading list 🙂

    1. Olga Nunez Miret says:

      Thanks, Inese. It’s such a beautiful book! I hope it brings you plenty of joy. <3

      1. inese says:

        Not selling me the Kindle version yet, but I saved the link and will wait.

        1. Olga Nunez Miret says:

          Thanks, Inese. It seems the release date is different in different Kindle stores, although if you follow the author they will notify you of the release. Have a great Friday!

          1. inese says:

            That’s a good advice! Have a great day you too!

Don't be shy! Tell me something!
