The New Home

Author – Chris Merritt.

Chris Merritt is a British author whose crime thrillers combine psychology, suspense, and characters you care about.

All his novels are set in London, where he lives. He began writing fiction in 2014, after previous careers as a diplomat, based in Iraq and Jerusalem, and later as a psychologist working with victims and perpetrators of crime. He specialised in treating Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), which sparked his interest in telling stories about how people cope when faced with extreme adversity.

Now, he spends most of his time writing novels and drinking coffee while *thinking* about writing novels. When he’s not writing, he loves climbing and playing basketball.

The Blurb –

You never know what’s happening behind closed doors…

Freya loves her new home on a quiet suburban street. And her beautiful neighbour Emily is everything she’s ever wanted in a best friend. Finally, she has somebody to share her secrets with over a glass of wine. But as Freya watches her new friend setting the table for dinner one evening, she sees something shocking that makes her think that Emily’s life might not be as perfect as it seems. Days later, Emily and her daughter vanish…

When you meet Emily’s husband, you will think you know what he’s hiding.

You will ask yourself whether Emily and Freya really did meet by chance.

You will think you know what happened to Emily and her little girl the night they went missing.

But when you discover the truth, it will shake you to your core and you will lie awake at night wondering if you can ever really trust the people in the house next door…

Fans of Claire McGowan, Shalini Boland and Lisa Jewell will love the gripping tension and unexpected twists of The New Home. Once you start reading, you’ll be hooked!

Today is my stop on The New Home blog tour. Many thanks to Bookouture for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – What a fantastic read this is! Such a gripping thriller.

The author is really clever with this book as I didn’t guess where this was going at all.

Freya is in awe of her new neighbour, Emily when they first meet. She is everything she aspires to be. They become good friends before Emily suddenly disappears.

What Freya believed about her and Emily’s life is called in question, as everyone seems to have secrets. Or is Freya overreacting.

Brilliantly written and plotted, I read it in one sitting. Some many issues are dealt with whilst the tension gets ramped up throughout.

Highly recommended.

The Blurb –

Meet Belinda Penshurst. Castle owner, dog lover… crime solver?

Belinda Penshurst loves her home village Little Challham, with its shady lanes, two pubs and weekly market, and she’s determined to keep it peaceful. She may live in Challham Castle but she knows almost everything that goes on under her nose. So when irritable pub landlord Tipper is found dead in his cellar, she’s perfectly placed to investigate.

Retired detective Harry Powell moved to Little Challham for a quiet life. He didn’t expect to be dragged into a murder investigation. But the police don’t seem half as enthusiastic as Belinda about the case, and there are strange things happening in the village. Particularly the number of dogs that have disappeared lately…

Is there a dognapper snaffling schnauzers and luring away Labradors? Is Belinda barking mad to be worried that her brother Marcus was arguing with Tipper on the day he died? Belinda and Harry track down the suspects: the rival landlord, the outraged barmaid, the mysterious man in the black car following dogwalkers around. But are the dogged detectives running out of time to sniff out the killer, before he starts hounding them?

A charming cozy mystery full of laughs and eccentric characters. Fans of M.C. Beaton, H.Y. Hanna and Emily Organ will love the first novel in the Belinda Penshurst series!

Today is my stop on the Murder in the Village blog tour. Many thanks to Bookouture for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – I absolutely love cosy crime and especially finding a new series to read.

So I was really pleased to start this Belinda Penshurst mystery. Also if you are a dog lover, you’d be barking mad not to read it!

Strange things are happening in Belinda’s village so decides to sort things out herself.

This is a great read and the author had cemented herself firmly into cosy crime series. I can’t wait to read the next one.

Cullrothes, in the Scottish Highlands, where Innes hides a terrible secret from his girlfriend Alice, a gorgeous, cheating, lying schoolteacher. In the same village, Donald is the aggressive distillery owner, who floods the country with narcotics alongside his single malt; when his son goes missing, he becomes haunted by an anonymous American investor intent on purchasing the Cullrothes Distillery by any means necessary. Schoolgirl Jessie is trying to get the grades to escape to the mainland, while Grandpa counts the days left in his life.

This is a place where mountains are immense and the loch freezes in winter. A place with only one road in and out. With long storms and furious midges and a terrible phone signal. The police are compromised the journalists are scum, and the innocent folk of Cullrothes tangle themselves in a fermenting barrel of suspicion, malice and lies…

Today is my stop on The Mash House blog tour. Many thanks to Anne Cater for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – I was really impressed by this book and was surprised it was a debut novel. The author has created a really dark and gripping world set in Scotland.

There are lots of different characters to get to know and I loved the diversity and all the varying relationships between them. I devoured the book in just a couple of sittings as I was hooked! The story is engaging and contains a lot of subject matter, it isn’t a light book by any means.

Scotland has always produced good authors and I think Alan Gillespie is a name that will be added to these. I look forward to reading more of his work.

A drowned child. Estranged sisters. A once-perfect home.

Silence echoes louder than truth.

When seventeen-year-old Rachel’s baby brother drowns and her older sister, Imogen, escapes to live abroad with Simon, her musician boyfriend, Rachel must face the family’s grief and disintegration alone.

Twenty years later, Rachel is a successful businesswoman, with a daughter of her own, supporting her parents and their elegant Georgian home, The Old Rectory, that shackles them to the past. 

Simon’s sudden death in Ibiza brings Imogen back, impoverished and resentful. Her family owes her, and she will stop at nothing to reclaim what she believes is rightly hers.

The rift between the sisters seems permanent. While Imogen has lived a nomadic life, filled with intrigue, in Spain and Tunisia, Rachel’s has appeared stable and successful but, behind the veneer, cracks are appearing. Now, she is vulnerable.

As the wall of silence and secrecy crumbles, danger stalks Rachel’s family. She must re-examine her baby brother’s death, find out what happened in Tunisia, and fight to hold onto everything she’s achieved –or risk losing it all.

Façade is a gripping tale of loss, guilt and danger.

Today is my stop on the Facade blog tour. Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – This is an excellent read that concentrates on what happened on a day in 1999.

The two main characters are Rachel and Imogen and they are sisters, however it is fair to say their relationship is fractured. As the story goes on we find out what happened in 1999 and how this one event has affected the two sisters.

There is a great mystery to the book and just when you think you have it all sussed out, it completely changes. It is this twist that will have you guessing right until the last page.

Highly recommended.

The Missing Activist

The Amazon purchase links contained within my blog are Amazon Affiliate Links.

Author – Louise Burfitt-Dons

Louise Burfitt-Dons was first introduced to the idea of writing conspiracy fiction on meeting Ian Fleming when he visited her birth country of Kuwait in 1960 and befriended her father. Fast forward forty years to her founding the children’s charity Act Against Bullying in 2000. This had her advising police on the manipulation and cover up tactics of young people, girl gangs and junior cyber stalkers. She believes these are the same devices used by political parties, spies and crooks. They form the background to her thriller stories. 

Her first novel (June 5th 2018) The Missing Activist (New Century) was the first in a series starring off the wall P I Karen Andersen.  The plot was inspired by her experiences as a Parliamentary candidate in the UK General Election of 2015. Sequel The Killing of the Cherrywood MP was published on March 18th 2020.  She is currently working on book three in the Karen Andersen series.

Louise is also a screenwriter who has worked with producers in the UK and the US.  Recent films screened on TV include Mother of All Secrets (2018), The Ex Next Door (2019, LifeTime) and Fame at a Deadly Cost (LifeTime 2020).  Not all her work has a dark tone. She loves British comedy and wrote the rom-com Christmas in the Highlands (2019) for Triventure Productions which has also made it on to the international television circuits.

She now lives in Chiswick, West London with her ex-pilot husband Donald. She has two grown up daughters and a seven-month year old granddaughter Dempsie Lee Williams.

“Intense and teasing”Vine Voice
“Authentic and gripping political thriller”The Conservative Woman

Post-Referendum Britain and a country on high alert for terrorist attacks.
When a young political activist disappears in London, an off-the-wall PI Karen Andersen is put on the case. She uncovers secrets of a party system which prizes loyalty above truth, a serial killer and a female Jihadi plotting deadly revenge on the British Government.

“A behind-the-scenes twisty political thriller and bullying story of poignancy and compassion. The author has had experience of both having been a national candidate during the 2015 General Election as well as the founder of an anti-bullying charity during the scandal which rocked the Tories after the tragic death of a young activist later that year.” LBC

If you were a fan of Lisbeth Salander, you will love her British counterpart Karen Andersen.

Today is my stop on The Missing Activist blog tour. Many thanks to Sarah Hardy BOTBS for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – What a great read!

This is such a well written book with lots of characters who at first seem unconnected but come together as the story goes on. The author has obviously used her own experiences to pen this gripping thriller.

Karen Andersen is a private investigator who is pulled into the disappearance of a Tory activist, not long before his disappearance he put a complaint into the Tory party. He is a loyal party member but was forced into submitting his complaint after witnessing bullying. He believes his party will look after its members but what becomes apparent is that the party look after their own at any cost.

Karen is vocal about online bullying and the effect it has on people, months earlier a prominent activist committed suicide after receiving death threats and being the victim of trolling online.

What I love about Karen’s character is how the author reveals her inner securities, how she feels about herself and how she thinks people view her. Her strong exterior hides her anxious interior.

This is a great book with lots of threads that the author successfully weaves together.

The Curious History of Sex

Dr Kate Lister is a lecturer at Leeds Trinity University, where she researches the history of sexuality and curates the online research project Whores of Yore.

The Blurb –

This is not a comprehensive study of every sexual quirk, kink and ritual across all
cultures throughout time, as that would entail writing an encyclopaedia.
Rather, this is a drop in the ocean, a paddle in the shallow end of sex
history, but I hope you will get pleasantly wet nonetheless.

The act of sex has not changed since people first worked out what went where, but the
ways in which society dictates how sex is culturally understood and performed
have varied significantly through the ages. Humans are the only creatures that
stigmatise particular sexual practices, and sex remains a deeply divisive issue
around the world. Attitudes will change and grow – hopefully for the better –
but sex will never be free of stigma or shame unless we acknowledge where it
has come from.

Drawing upon extensive research from Dr Kate Lister’s Whores
of Yore website and written with her distinctive humour and wit, A Curious
History of Sex
 covers topics ranging from twentieth-century testicle thefts
to Victorian doctors massaging the pelvises of their female patients, from smutty
bread innuendos dating back to AD 79, to the new and controversial sex doll
brothels. It is peppered with surprising and informative historical slang and
illustrated by eye-opening, toe-curling and hilarious images.

In this fascinating book, Lister deftly debunks myths and stereotypes and gives unusual
sexual practices an historical framework, as she provides valuable context for
issues facing people today, including gender, sexual shame, beauty and
language.

My thoughts – This is an incredible book that everyone should read. Dr Kate Lister has compiled a fascinating wealth of information on the subject of sex. Even in this day and age so much mystery and embarrassment surrounds sex. It is still a taboo subject that can cause so much confusion.

Everyone will learn a new thing or two whilst reading this, as Dr Kate Lister guides you through sex through the ages. Learn the history of sexual acts or the historical names of your sexual parts.

I found it such an enlightening book, the author’s humour and footnotes are also a highlight. The misgivings of societies through time are interesting too, as we learn what they believed in regards to sexual practices.

A Chilling historical tale of lust, sorcery and devastating revenge

No female dares spurn the lecherous advances of Sir Henry Cruttendon, 17th Century England’s most reviled nobleman. To do so risks a retribution that would terrify the Devil himself.

But Elizabeth Fiennes is no ordinary woman, blessed with stunning beauty,  intelligence and guile. Coming from an influential family, she believes she is safe.

What she doesn’t understand is that the Earl is determined to satisfy his lust and plans to use the wave of witch trials, fear and superstition  sweeping the countryside to force her into his clutches.

And as he springs his malicious trap it triggers a chain of unholy events plunging hunter and prey into a maelstrom of deceit, terror and depravity – leaving them both staring into the face of true evil…

Today is my stop on the To Snare A Witch. Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – I was really looking forward to this book as I was really impressed by Game of Crones also written by Jay Raven.

I wasn’t disappointed at all, this is a brilliantly written book. The book starts with a witch trial, the two men representing the Witch Finder General convince the villagers that a witch lives amongst them. What isn’t apparent is that the two men who are actors have struck upon a great way of making money, going from village to village apparently finding witches.

However someone has cottoned on to their scheme and is intent on using the two actors for his own means. Imagine being a Sir who is used to getting everything you want, but a young girl turns you down. Sir Henry Cruttendon will go to any lengths to satisfy his desires.

A brilliant short read, highly recommended.

Heathcliff

Author – Sue Barnard.

Sue Barnard is a British novelist, editor and award-winning poet whose family background is far stranger than any work of fiction. She would write a book about it if she thought anybody would believe her.

Sue was born in North Wales but has spent most of her life in and around Manchester. She speaks French like a Belgian, German like a schoolgirl, and Italian and Portuguese like an Englishwoman abroad.

Her mind is so warped that she has appeared on BBC TV’s Only Connect quiz show, and she has also compiled questions for BBC Radio 4’s fiendishly difficult Round Britain Quiz. This once caused one of her sons to describe her as “professionally weird.” The label has stuck.

Sue’s first novel, The Ghostly Father (a new take on the traditional story of Romeo & Juliet), was officially released on St Valentine’s Day 2014.  Since then she has produced five more novels: Nice Girls Don’t (2014), The Unkindest Cut of All (2015), Never on Saturday (2017), Heathcliff (2018), and Finding Nina (2019).

Sue now lives in Cheshire, UK, with her extremely patient husband and a large collection of unfinished scribblings.

It would degrade me to marry Heathcliff now…”

Cathy’s immortal words from Wuthering Heights change Heathcliff’s life.  At just seventeen years of age, heartbroken and penniless, he runs away to face an unknown future.

Three years later, he returns – much improved in manners, appearance and prosperity.

But what happened during those years? How could he have made his fortune, from nothing? Who might his parents have been? And what fate turned him into literature’s most famous anti-hero?

For almost two centuries, these questions have remained unanswered.

Until now…

Today is my stop on the Heathcliff blog tour.  Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – I was really happy to review this book after reading the author’s previous book The Ghostly Father which concentrated on the story of Romeo and Juliet, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

This book concentrates on Wuthering Heights published by Emily Bronte in 1847, the main characters being Cathy and Heathcliff.  I always think it is brave to tackle such a well known book and put your spin on it, but Sue Barnard does this extremely well.  It is not a rewriting of the book, none of the elements change.  This book looks at Heathcliff in the three year break in Wuthering Heights.

The book is written from various points of view which I found really good as you get everyone’s perspective which, for me, adds something.

Even if you haven’t read Wuthering Heights, this is well worth a read, you get the gist of the story .  This is a re imagining of a classic that changes nothing of the original but adds elements to it.

Chloe – Never Forget

Author – Dan Laughey.

Dan Laughey is a lecturer at Leeds Beckett University where he teaches a course called ‘Youth, Crime and Culture’ among other things. He has written several books on the subject including Music and Youth Culture, based on his PhD in Sociology at Salford University. He also holds a BA in English from Manchester Metropolitan University and an MA in Communications Studies from the University of Leeds.

Dan was born in Otley and bred in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, a hop and a skip away from the Leeds setting of his Chloe novels.

His crime writing was purely academic to begin with. He’s written about media violence and tackled the age-old concern about television and video games influencing patterns of antisocial behaviour in society. After years of research and theoretical scrutiny, he still hasn’t cracked that particular nut.

He’s also written about the role of CCTV and surveillance in today’s Big Brother world, the sometimes fraught relationship between rap and juvenile crime, football hooliganism, and the sociocultural legacy of Britain’s most notorious serial killer – the Yorkshire Ripper.

All in all, Dan’s work has been translated into four languages: French, Hebrew, Korean and Turkish. He has presented guest lectures at international conferences and appeared on BBC Radio and ITV News in addition to providing expert commentary for The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph.

An off-duty detective gunned down. A dead woman. A student missing, feared dead. And now, a former policeman in search of his past. All these people, dead or alive, have one thing in common. D.I. Carl Sant must discover what it is.

A series of cold-case enquiries leads D.I. Sant and his colleagues to investigate a botched assassination plot dating back to the 1980s. The deeper they dig into the case, the more secrets are revealed, including shocking connections to the infamous National Front.

Meanwhile, the memory of former P.C. Tanner, survivor of the assassination horror, is beginning to recover. Sant must find Tanner, and find out who is behind it all – before his superiors lose their rag and more lives are lost.

My thoughts – This is the follow up to Chloe – Lost Girl, and I really recommend that you read that book first, so you get up to speed with all that has happened in the story so far.  This book starts to connect all the loose ends we were left with, as D.I Carl Sant and the team start to figure out the connections between the dead policeman, a missing girl and a dead woman.

This book delves further into the past as Sant finds clues that not everyone wants investigating.  A great follow up to the first book, with lots of twists and turns.  Highly recommended.
