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.

BLOG TOUR REVIEW – Murder on the Rocks by J.S.Strange

For some reason I've always tended to avoid anything under the genre of 'cosy'. I don't know what it is, but the idea of a 'cosy' book, just doesn't sit well with me.

I loved the Agatha Christie-esque … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – Murder on the Rocks by J.S.Strange
