Tired of only getting flyers and bills in the post? Are you a confirmed book addict who is always on the look out for another good read? Do you love a good classic crime novel?
Then look no further than this: a one off or monthly book box subscription! Ideal as a gift or as a much needed treat for yourself.
In each box you will receive:
• A newsletter which highlights upcoming releases, personal favourite reads, puzzles and more!
• Two personally selected surprise vintage mystery novels (although vintage in origin, with some signs of previous use, they will all be in good condition ).
• A sachet of luxury coffee (Great for indulging in whilst reading your latest books). However hot chocolate and tea alternatives are possible so do drop me a message if this would be preferable.
• Book/Mystery related goodies, such as notebooks, tote bags, coasters and more! (These will change from month to month, so subscribers won’t receive the same gifts twice and examples of these gifts can be seen in the pictures).
Are you sending this as a gift to someone new to classic crime? Or are you a long-time fan of the genre and looking for authors more off the beaten track? Thrillers, do you love them or hate? Please send me a message with any questions or requests. If you would like this sent as a gift, direct to recipient, send me your personal message to them.
Here are five reviews of my boxes:
Subscriptions come in 1 month, 3 month, 6 month and 12 month packages. The longer the subscription the less you pay per box. 12 Month subscribers get one of their boxes for free! The prices for the 3 month, 6 months and 12 month packages also include the additional P&P for sending the boxes after the first month. If you are buying 1 month subscriptions for more than one person, such as for 3 people, feel free to select the 3 month package (with the savings) and then message me that they are one month boxes for separate individuals.
My aim is that all my customers will be happy with the box they receive, but if you have any difficulties or problems please do contact me, to give me the opportunity to rectify anything I can before leaving feedback.
About the Seller
I have been a lover of vintage crime fiction for a number of years. There is something irresistible about the quirky, genteel and amateur sleuth, as well as the body in the library of course. This passion has led to me writing my own blog: www.crossexaminingcrime.com, where I frequently review older mystery novels and I also produce articles for magazines such as Mystery Scene and CADs. It is my enthusiasm for this genre that has inspired me to set up this venture and I hope it will appeal to both readers who are new to or diehard fans of a good vintage mystery.

Lovely communication from seller due to some error with delivery. The books were packaged beautifully with lovely attention to detail. However the contents were a little disappointing, the two books were OK however it came with a single sachet of instant coffee, a plastic mirror, postcard and coaster and bent cardboard bookmark didn't feel like I got value for money if I'm honest. The photo of the product shows a much higher quality coffee packet, a postcard, art print and bookmark, a coaster and a beautiful looking pencil case. It just looks a lot better. The info sheet was poorly printed.
I love the different books, I've not heard of either of the wrapped ones, and the bonus book as part of the extras has been very interesting. It's great to have the option for hot chocolate in the place of coffee. I love the finishing touches like the stamps of the detective on the paper, the wrapping for each book with an evidence tag with information on the book and the little extras, the chocolate didn't last long. I'm definitely tempted to go for a longer subscription to build up my classic crime books.
I bought this as a birthday present for my mum and she loved it! The customer service is amazing - great communication, and I asked for a kind of bespoke arrangement (by suggesting what my mum likes and letting the vendor put something suitable together - I had no idea exactly what would be included in the box and it was spot on!) A fantastic gift, superb service, what more can I say?!
Love it. My first box took about 3 weeks to get to Australia, much less time than anticipated and the contents are delightful. Both the books are new to me and the additional items are all great. I especially love the Poirot-quoting tote bag. Recommend for mystery lovers. Seller is very easy to communicate with if you need to negotiate variations to the standard offering.
