Book Description

Caz Tallis restores rocking horses in her London workshop. When shabby but charismatic Joe and his dog turn up on her roof terrace, she is reluctantly drawn into investigating a rock star's murder from three years before - an unsolved case the police have closed. Which, as her best friend James says, is rather like poking a furnace with a short stick... 

Now available as an Audible audio book.

Oracle, AMAZON VINE VOICE REVIEWER, wrote: "This is a highly addictive novel, a good old-fashioned murder mystery with a dash of 21st century celebrity glamour. I struggled to put it down. Lexi Revellian is great at crafting a plot that moves at speed but her biggest talent is in creating characters that the reader can really care about, characters that seem like old friends as the novel draws to a close."

Full length novel, by the author of REPLICA, ICE DIARIES and WOLF BY THE EARS.
Formatted for Kindle Format 8 - fonts/font sizes can be changed on newer Kindles such as the Paperwhite.


Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Remix, my third novel, is set in London, and was initially called Catch a Falling Star, a title I had to abandon when a reality TV star used it. I was trying to write something as unputdownable as an early Dick Francis. There are horses in the book - the rocking horses my heroine restores.

The story starts when Caz finds a stranger asleep on her roof terrace and he turns out to be - well, why not buy a copy and find out?

Overall, Remix is great fun, extremely entertaining and - dare I say it - would make an excellent transition to the small or big screen."

5.0 out of 5 stars Original and Compelling Mystery August 14, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm not normally a big fan of the "accidental detective" school of mystery, but the writer makes this one work. The initially implausible situation -- a young woman meets a man and his dog whom she finds camped out on her rooftop terrace and invites them in for breakfast -- is somehow made quite believable. The author accomplishes this magical feat by giving us a narrator/protagonist who is real, likable, interesting and layered. The pacing works and the writing never gets in its own way. While there's certainly a chick-lit quality to this -- Caz is single, young, attractive and has more than one character interested in pursuing a romance with her, this lacks the whinging quality of a lot of that genre and should appeal to anyone (male or female) who likes a good mystery. If Caz continues to find herself involved with investigations, I'll be happy to follow her adventures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging Characters December 16, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Remix was a great read from start to finish. After Caz finds a "dead" rock star sleeping on her property, she gets involved in helping him prove he's innocent of murder. At first she's reluctant, but she truly believes in Ric's innocence. I'll stop here, so as not to add spoilers.

Caz and Ric have flaws, but are likable and believable, and secondary characters are also well-drawn. Twists and turns kept me guessing and there was plenty of suspense to keep me reading. Descriptions of Caz's work as a restorer of rocking horses were a fun and fascinating element of the story. Author Lexi Revellian seems to really know her subject.

The book is fast-paced, well-written, and reaches a satisfying conclusion. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great escape August 19, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Are you looking for a fun read? This one did not let me down. A murder mystery with plot twists that moves at a nice pace. It was hard for me not to like the characters (or hate them) as I got sucked into this one. If you are looking to be entertained, this one is better than TV. I love Cas and want to join the Voice's fan club!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun little book October 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book. I suspect it is directed to a younger audience (I haven't dreamed of finding a rock star on my patio in many years!), but the characters were well developed, and amusing. The plot was a little predictable, and I found the British vocabulary and slang a little confusing, but the book held my attention from beginning to end. There is no depth or life lessons in this book, no great mystery to solve, but if you just want to relax with an entertaining book, then this one is worth your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read June 8, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I haven't written reviews before but felt compelled to do so in the case of Remix by Lexi Revellian. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has a great story, is well written and is a joy to read. The characters are extremely well constructed and completely believable and I was able to feel fully `involved' as they dodged their way through the plot. It normally takes me about three months to read a book; this one took me three weeks! So what did I think overall? Well I bought her next book on the strength of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars well, I read it all February 14, 2012
By Ann
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The situation is interesting and I liked the characters. However, I had trouble with the Joe/Ric charcter who was almost two different people. There was the wild, impulsive side and the determined, sensitive side. It just didn't ring very true. And the ending was just unsatisfying.
So, its a mystery/romance of middling quality.

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost a 4 February 20, 2012
By Rhubarb
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good story; believable and engaging characters; settings nicely delineated. Ending quite satisfactory, what?

And of course the dog, whose name is Dog.

I had a problem with the Ric character. Either he was schizoid, or manipulative. Or both. It was hard to see how he could be one person with such extremes of personality.

And I was put off by British slang that my dictionary didn't recognize: "tosser" and "saddo" were two. I finally figured out the first by context and I just guessed on the second that it was obviously a pejorative term. Who wants to stop reading to look up a word in an online slang dictionary?

Ric has been hit on the head, unconscious, has a bleeding cut. He runs his fingers through his hair shortly thereafter with not so much as a wince. Sure.

A few errors in grammar and spelling ("disorientating") but I'm beginning to accept that writing English correctly is a lost art.

The author has written an enjoyable story, and I'm going to read the sequel.

Selected this book by chance and I'm really glad I did. A relaxing read but gripping at the same time. Characters really well written and it moves at a good pace. Looking forward to Lexi Revellian's next book!

More About the Author

For years, I resisted writing because I knew I'd never be as good as Jane Austen. Finally I realized no one is as good as Jane Austen - I started writing and couldn't stop. I've sold over 69,000 ebooks.

My first two novels are fantasy. The third, REMIX, is contemporary fiction with elements of crime, investigation and romance, and tells what happens when Caz Tallis finds a strange man asleep on her roof terrace. He turns out to be - no, I'm not telling you, you'll have to read it to find out... My fourth, REPLICA, is a thriller. Beth Chandler is unknowingly replicated in a flawed experiment, and falls for the man who is hunting her double. ICE DIARIES is a post-apocalyptic story with romance and humour. My latest is WOLF BY THE EARS, a thriller set in London.

My day job is designing and making jewellery and silver under my real name, Lexi Dick. I've made pieces for Margaret Thatcher, 10 Downing Street and Her Majesty the Queen.
