Blog Tour Review – Thirteen by Steve Cavanagh

This was my first introduction to legal eagle Eddie Flynn, as I hadn't read the books that came before this one (this works well as a standalone). I'll gladly hunt down those books though! So ... Eddie Flynn ... rather an unconventional and unexpected hero to be honest! From the outset I wasn't quite sure... Continue Reading →

*** NEW *** NEW *** NEW *** From now on, in every book review, I will include the one single idea that stood out the most for me in that book. Every book has one. I’d love it if you shared yours with me from the same book. I loved this while I was reading... Continue Reading →

BOOK REVIEW – Mother By S.E. Lynes

Christopher Harris has always been somewhat of a misfit. He’s just never really felt part of anything, especially not his family – and that was even long before his 2 siblings arrived.

BOOK REVIEW – The Damselfly by S.J.I. Holliday

This is the third of Holliday’s ‘Banktoun’ trilogy, this works well as a standalone too. I’ve only read the first book – Blackwood - and missed the second – Willow Walk. Katie is a bright teenager who, despite her challenging background, is planning her future in London. Together with her boyfriend Neil, and her teachers... Continue Reading →
