To celebrate the publication of Breanne Mc Ivor’s vibrant new novel, The God of Good Looks, on 22 June, The Publishing Post is giving away one copy each to two lucky winners. Sparkling, big-hearted and life-affirming, The God of Good Looks is a story about prejudice and pride, the masks we wear, and what we can become if we dare to take them off.
Set in the modern-day beauty industry in Trinidad, The God of Good Looks charts Bianca Bridge’s journey after a fling with a married government minister sends her writing career off the rails. Her new boss, Obadiah Cortland, is a local legend who has perfected his facade as "The God of Good Looks" and knows as well as Bianca that in the high-end beauty world, one smudge can ruin your image. This clashing combination of personalities couldn’t be more different, but when Bianca’s ex threatens both their futures, the two fiery personalities must work together to protect everything they care about.
One of the STYLIST books of the Summer, fans of The God of Good Looks include Coco Mellors (author of Cleopatra and Frankenstein), who described the book as “a dazzling delight of a debut.” Likewise, Lizzie Damilola Blackburn (author of Yinka, Where is Your Husband?) said “Phenomenal! A book worthy of a standing ovation. I will never forget how this novel made me feel. It's effortlessly beautiful.”
An award-winning writer from Trinidad, Breanne Mc Ivor holds degrees in English from Cambridge and Edinburgh, as well as a certificate in Advanced Professional Makeup Artistry.
