BLOG TOUR REVIEW – What You Did by Claire McGowan

As with my previous review where I suggested that going on holiday with your closest friends and their families might possibly not be the best idea, similarly here, a reunion weekend with your besties from college, with all your family et al in tow - over 20 years on - is probably not going to … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – What You Did by Claire McGowan

BOOKS ON TOUR – The Violin Maker’s Daughter by Sharon Maas

With so many stories being set in the traumatic WWII era, all based on fact - whether the author chooses to rely heavily or loosely on these facts depending on each individual book - The Violin Maker's Daughter has many unique qualities.

BLOG BLITZ REVIEW – The Woman at Number 19 by J.A. Baker

An absolutely brilliant, unputdownable, cracker of a read! I hate comparing books, but for me, this was slightly reminiscent of The Woman in the Window. It had the same sense of a woman being trapped both within herself and her home, by her life and circumstances and unable to move forward. Esther has suffered a … Continue reading BLOG BLITZ REVIEW – The Woman at Number 19 by J.A. Baker

She has worked there for … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – The Last Stage by Louise Voss

BLOG TOUR REVIEW – The Nanny at Number 43 by Nicola Cassidy

This nanny is no Mary Poppins - she's pure evil behind a facade of calm control! Based in the late 1800's this is a slow-burner of a crime thriller with a dark edge and a feeling of unease throughout. It opens with the gruesome discovery of a suitcase containing the bodies of twin babies, buried … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – The Nanny at Number 43 by Nicola Cassidy

Life doesn't always end up the way we planned it, or the way we expected it to. That's what happens to Sylvia Penton. She always thought her life would be pretty much like everyone else's: she'd meet 'Mr Right'; get married; have children and live mediocrely ever after. But that's not exactly the way it … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – Needlemouse by Jane O’Connor

BLOG TOUR REVIEW – Stone Cold Heart (Cat Kinsella #2) by Caz Frear

Although this is is the second in a series featuring DC Cat Kinsella, and it's recommended that the first book, Sweet Little Lies, be read first, Stone Cold Heart can easily be read as a standalone as the reader is provided with enough background information. The book starts off with Joseph Madden, Cat's barista seemingly … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – Stone Cold Heart (Cat Kinsella #2) by Caz Frear
