BLOG BLITZ – His Secret Family by Ali Mercer

Essentially, for me, this was a story that showed the dark fickleness of men (apologies - I know that not ALL men should be tarred with the same brush!), and the ease with which many women (again, not ALL) are willing to fall back into what is familiar. Told from the point of view of … Continue reading BLOG BLITZ – His Secret Family by Ali Mercer

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

BLOG BLITZ REVIEW – Rosie & Ruby by Patricia Dixon

Women who aren't fit to be mothers; men who aren't fit to be husbands; girls who can't wait to be free of their roots to make lives of their own and create new futures. Unfortunately, it's not always fiction. Rosie and Ruby are cousins with equally appalling mothers. Rosie's mom care's more about appearances than … Continue reading BLOG BLITZ REVIEW – Rosie & Ruby by Patricia Dixon

BLOG BLITZ REVIEW – The Feud by Amanda James

Another book set in a village (we all know how much I love those)! This time, the village of St. Agnes in Cornwall and there's a 200-year-old feud thrown into the mix, together with the expected undercurrent of menace and unease. I loved that gothic touch that was added in here, and I absolutely adored … Continue reading BLOG BLITZ REVIEW – The Feud by Amanda James

BLOG BLITZ REVIEW – The Cleansing by J.A. Baker

Ooooooh ... don't you love stories set in small villages? Quirky people, suspicion lurking around every corner, dark undertones that abound in almost every interaction. J.A. Baker dishes it all up in spades, from the minute Ray, the newcomer to Whitchurch, walks into the local bar, and silence suddenly and noticeably descends on the place! … Continue reading BLOG BLITZ REVIEW – The Cleansing by J.A. Baker

BLOG BLITZ REVIEW – Death’s Dark Veil by Patricia Dixon

I love these books where the house itself is so dark and chilling that it's actually a fully-fledged character itself. Here, the house seems to brood and shift at will, taking on the moods of its inhabitants. It's very creepy and adds to the undercurrent of dread that runs through the entire book. Headstrong, independent … Continue reading BLOG BLITZ REVIEW – Death’s Dark Veil by Patricia Dixon
