It's Day One of the Blog Tour for The Four of Us, and thanks to the wonderful invention that is 'Load Shedding' in Johannesburg, I wasn't able to post this earlier! But yay ... finally, we have electricity, so here we go ... As much as I say I don’t like girly books (see, I … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – The Four of Us by Áine Toner

BLOG TOUR REVIEW – Perfect Bones by AJ Waines (Dr. Samantha Willerby #3)

Ok, so ... this is the third in a series of which I hadn't read the previous two books. It's easily read as a standalone but I need to say off the bat that although this is the case, and the author does a good job of filling the reader in on the backstory, this … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – Perfect Bones by AJ Waines (Dr. Samantha Willerby #3)

BLOG TOUR REVIEW – Someone Like Me by M.R. Carey

The first thing I need to say is that I absolutely love the fact that the author, a MAN - the 'M' is for 'Mike' - has the incredible ability to create such strong, resilient female protagonists. He must have had some pretty amazing role-models in his life! I've had 'The Girl With All the … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – Someone Like Me by M.R. Carey

Not many authors have the ability to get that right, but Redmond manages to do it perfectly. The story starts off with Meg as a child, discovering that she … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – The Night Visitor by Patrick Redmond

BLOG TOUR REVIEW – The Water and the Wine by Tamar Hodes

After reading this I did wonder if the whole idea of artist colonies and the like are really so great after all. All that ego and hedonism in one place! Is there really anywhere large enough to handle it?! Tamar Hodes has based this partly autobiographical novel on Hydra in the 60's. It's a time … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – The Water and the Wine by Tamar Hodes

BLOG TOUR REVIEW – The Dream Wife by Louisa de Lange

Far fetched? Possibly. But sadly, as they say, the truth is stranger than fiction. This truth, however, happens more often than we would like to think: men who appear loving and 'perfect' on the surface but who hide something much darker behind that charming facade. That's the case with David who manages to con Annie … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – The Dream Wife by Louisa de Lange
