For many years, she worked with young people in Yorkshire who were growing up in the aftermath of sudden industrial decline. She uses this background in her books to explore some of the issues that confront modern, urban society: poverty, alienation and social breakdown, using the contexts of the modern crime novel.

The Blurb –

When everyone hides the truth, who do you turn to?

Becca’s had a hard time of it, but she has finally got her life together. She has a nice little flat, a steady job pulling pints, and she’s even seeing someone new: Andy, who keeps his private life to himself but is always good for a laugh. And then Andy vanishes. When his body turns up on isolated Sunk Island, Becca learns Andy wasn’t just another punter. He was a police officer, deep undercover, investigating a drugs ring that he believed operated out of Becca’s pub.

Staggered by the betrayal, Becca turns to the only person she thinks she can trust: her foster mum, Kay. But Kay has problems of her own. She’s just moved into a short-term let in the hopes of finding some peace and quiet. But peace and quiet are hard to come by on Sunk Island . . .

Before long, both women are drawn into a terrifying world of drugs, money and death.

Today is my stop on the Someone Who Isn’t Me blog tour. Many thanks to Zoe’s Book Tours for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – This is the second book I have read by this author, the first being Life Ruins. This book again sees Becca coping with her troubled life.

However as always nothing is plain sailing for her when she gets dragged in to another mystery. Again the author has written a gripping thriller that concentrates on on how hard life can be for people, that have no choices or no perceived choices.

People in tight situations often make poor choices and this is what the author excels in highlighting.

I really recommend this.

Newly single Camille Robins luck is about to change as she embarks on a new chapter of her life, moving to the city near her best friend, Lizzie.

A chance meeting at Lou’s B&B, Camille meets George, a handsome man who sweeps her off her feet.

Can Lizzie forgive Camille for stealing her previous boyfriend, or will she seek revenge?

Camille can’t believe her luck! George can’t believe how perfect she is….

Was it a fate romance, or part of an evil plan?

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

My thoughts – This really is a gripping psychological thriller that messes with your head.

When Camille really believes she has her life sorted out she has no idea that other parties are not so enthusiastic. She is going to work for her best friend and she has a new love interest too. While she is busy enjoying this new phase in her life, something far more sinister in is play.

I really enjoyed this book and felt so much for Camille. There were lots of twists to keep me guessing how this was going to end.

Highly recommended.

The Blurb –

In a small northern town, girls are disappearing.

You won’t see it in the papers and the police aren’t taking any notice, but the clues are there if you know where to look.

Becca sees that something is wrong, but she’s been labelled ‘difficult’ thanks to her troubled past. So when a girl is so savagely beaten she can’t be identified, and Becca claims she knows who she is, no one will believe her.

With the police refusing to listen, Becca digs for evidence that will prove what she is saying. But her search for justice will put herself and those closest to her in danger – and once she finds the truth, will anyone even listen?

Today is my stop on the Life Ruins blog tour. Many thanks to Zooloo’s Book Tours for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – This is a gripping and gritty read.

The story revolves around three main characters, each with their own complicated lives. Based in Bridlington the author shows the darker side of life and how anyone can get drawn into it.

When the body of a woman is found, each character believes they know who is it. Even though she is too badly injured to be formally identified. The police are reluctant to believe that these people know the identify the body, so they are forced into trying to find the evidence for themselves.

A great read.

From poems to longer stories, you really get a glimpse into the style of the author and his love of horror and things that go bump in the night.

As you all know I am a huge fan of short stories as I find these glimpses into different worlds and scenarios so compelling. What I found interesting was how the stories stayed me after reading them, and to me that is a sign of great writing. When an author makes you think and question the story that has bee written.

Highly recommended.

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.

Librarian Jemima Jago is enjoying a peaceful summer in the Isles of Scilly – until a puzzling crime comes in with the tide…

Between her work in Cornwall’s oldest library and catching up with old friends over tea and chocolate biscuits, Jemima Jago is spending the season the only way she knows how: sunbathing, swimming and sailing. But her postcard-perfect summer is turned upside down when the body of well-to-do businessman Hermie Castleberry is found on the sweeping white sands at the foot of Candlewick Castle.

Jem doesn’t mean to get involved, but when her old flame Rhys Tremayne is arrested for murder, she springs into action to prove his innocence. With her gift for uncovering hard-to-find information, Jem discovers Hermie had been keeping secrets and ruffling a few feathers in the ordinarily tranquil islands. Did the quiet wife, the belittled business partner or the slimy salesman want Hermie out of the way?

The discovery of a pair of silver gloves by little dog Buck could be just the clue Jem needs to crack the case. But can she catch the real culprit, and keep her heart in check, before the killer sends her down to Davy Jones’ locker too?

A totally charming cozy mystery from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Emma Jameson. Fans of M.C. Beaton, Faith Martin and Agatha Christie will adore A Death at Candlewick Castle.

Today is my stop on the blog tour for A Death at Castlewick Castle. Many thanks to Bookouture for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – This is the second book in the Jemima Jago series, the first being A Death at Seascape House.

What I love about this series is the sense of place, the author gives you such a rich and descriptive idea of scenery, that picturing the story in your head is easy.

When a body is found on the day Jemima goes to a local pirate festival, she finds herself thrown into another mystery. Especially when a friend of hers is accused of their murder.

I am really enjoying this series, the author has created a great world for her protagonist and in this second installment the character and her friends are really beginning to gel.

You can read this as a standalone but I recommend that you start with the first book just so you can enjoy that one too.

The woman is kneeling at a gravestone, her hair blowing in the breeze, a bunch of wilting yellow daffodils on the grass beside her. Her eyes are fixed on the ground and her mouth is parted in a silent prayer. But the wax dripping from her cold blue lips means it’s already too late to save her…

On her first day back with the Denton PD after a major trauma, Detective Josie Quinn is on the hunt for a missing woman, Krystal Duncan, the mother of one of five children killed in a devastating school bus crash. Hours later, Josie finds Krystal’s body beside her daughter’s grave, her lips sealed together forever with wax.

Forensics match the wax to one of the candles lit in memory of the sweet little souls who died, giving Josie her first lead to a support group made up of the parents who lost children in the crash. Painstakingly dissecting the lives of these grieving couples, it’s clear to Josie that each of them is hiding something about the day of the accident—but whose secret is worth killing for?

The case takes an agonizing turn when the body of another young mother is found near the site of the bus crash. Someone connected to the accident is out for revenge. As the members of the support group are picked off one by one, every second counts for Josie to save the lives of these loving parents who have already suffered the loss of those they treasured most…

An absolutely gripping and totally unputdownable crime thriller from an Amazon, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author. Be warned, this book will keep you up all night! Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine.

Today is my stop on Her Deadly Touch blog tour. Many thanks to Bookouture for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – After the fall out of the last book, Josie is still coping with her loss. However when she hears of the death of a local bereaved mother, she is eager to look into the case.

This is brilliantly written and I flew through the book. The story is fascinating and sad as it deals with loss but it is intiguing.

Even if you haven’t read any of the series before, you can jump straight into this as the author fills you as and where necessary on any previous plot points.

I highly recommend this series to everyone.

A new book by two of the biggest powerhouses in positive psychology and personal development – Dr Andy Cope and Professor Paul McGee

Happiness. We chase it, we crave it…it’s so in demand… yet so scarce and fleeting.

But here’s the good news. In The Happiness Revolution: A Manifesto For Living Your Best Life, bestselling authors Dr Andy Cope and Professor Paul McGee deliver a page-turning self-help book of the times, for the times.  As the world wakes up to a new kind of normal, The Happiness Revolution challenges readers to sign up to an uprising of wellbeing and to making the most of the privilege of being on this planet.

The book outlines a 10-point Happiness Manifesto. Grounded in the science of human flourishing and the reality of life, the principles are simple, do-able and above all make a difference not only to yourself but to others too. Let the fight back to mental wealth start right here.

Welcome to global domination of the happiness kind!

Discover:

  • How to regain your sanity, clarity, and wellbeing, even when your smartphone, kids, spouse, job, and possessions seem to be conspiring to keep you from doing just that.
  • Why it can be so hard to maintain a happy outlook when the outside world has never been so fast, complex, and unpredictable.
  • How to be at your best in a world that is doing its worst.

Happiness is the #1 thing you want for yourself and your family. The Happiness Revolution is an indispensable guide for everyone trying to live their best life and to spread some happiness whilst doing so.

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

My thoughts – For someone who struggles with life in general, this book is a real tonic. It is a reminder to just stop sometimes.

The book addresses not only your mental health but your physical health and explains the link between the two. Combining this with 10 core pledges, this encourages you to think a little differently.

I found the pledges really helpful and the way the authors write helped me think about my own situation and how I can utilise their thinking for my situation. I am not saying this book will solve your problems but it will give you interesting information to think about. Which you can use if you choose to.

A brilliant book that I have no doubt, I will be reading again and again.

This is a brilliant story of revenge and retribution.

Always Never Rarely Sometimes

Author – Alexander Raphael.

Half-Welsh, half-Mexican and growing up in London, Alex Raphael was surrounded by different influences and interests. But it was always books that spoke to him most and had the greatest impact.

He started writing when at college, where his love of reading evolved into a desire to write, in particular focusing on poetry and short stories. Studying English and American Literature at university meant he took a break from writing, as well as giving him the chance to see more of Mexico on his travels. He concentrated on his journalistic career while working on different writing projects, but his favourite genre of literature has always been short stories as they are what first inspired him to write.

That’s why his first book was The Summer of Madness, a romantic short story that tells of a guy who goes out to try to win his ex-girlfriend back. Will you be rooting for Kurt and his big public gesture or is it more complicated than that and you don’t want her to date him again? Either way you’ll get to know a memorable set of characters along for the ride.

His second book Illusions, Delusions reflects Raphael’s love of alternative short stories from the writers of his childhood and challenges the idea of the narrative. Will your favourite be the story in the form of a questionnaire, a poem or a set of jokes, among the seven very different styles?

Alexander Raphael’s latest offering is Always Never, Rarely Sometimes, featuring original premises and distinctive characters with his trademark imagination, humour and memorable dialogue. Among others, meet a sinister magician with an array of pranks, a long-suffering husband finally becoming more decisive and a group of young guys intrigued by a pretty woman on another table.

An aspiring magician who gets a sinister pleasure playing all kinds of tricks on those around him. Two strangers running into each after 20 years and wondering what they’ve missed. A long-suffering husband who decides it’s time he started making big decisions. An unhappy child at Christmas struggling to deal with his new surroundings before a wonderfully surprising encounter.

All this and more within the seven stories of Always Never, Rarely Sometimes, where a wide range of characters are forced to challenge long-held beliefs and powerful memories, accompanied by a sprinkling of magic.

Always Never, Rarely Sometimes is the third book from Alexander Raphael, following on from his short story The Summer of Madness and his set of conceptual short stories Illusions, Delusions. Cover design by Hope Nguyen.

Today is my stop on the Always Never, Rarely Sometime blog tour. Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – As you know I am a huge fan of short story collections, and this is a brilliant addition to my library.

Not only do you come across numerous different characters within the various stories but the author shows his range but writing many varied genres. The books moves effortlessly between stories of hope to murder mysteries.

I thoroughly enjoyed all the stories and how the author kept me engaged throughout. This book is a perfect read and I highly recommend it to everyone.
