BLOG TOUR REVIEW – Our Life in a Day by Jamie Fewery

In the early 90's there was this really popular American sitcom starring Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser, that I really loved, called Mad About You. For some reason, Our Life in a Day reminded me of that! Tom and Esme are your average "noughties" couple. They meet at a party, get to know each other,... Continue Reading →

BLOG TOUR REVIEW – Swallowtail Summer by Erica James

It's Day 2 of the Blog Tour for Swallowtail Summer, the new book by Erica James, and I must admit that when I saw she had a new book out, it did bring back memories of good times spent in book clubs over the years, as typically, hers are the type of books favoured by... Continue Reading →

BLOG TOUR REVIEW – A Clean Canvas by Elizabeth Mundy

This was quite a different sort of crime read. Lena (pronounced Lay-na, not Lea-ner to rhyme with cleaner, although she thinks she should have reconsidered naming her business 'Lena's Cleaners) is a bit of an amateur sleuth, by all accounts.

BLOG BLITZ REVIEW – The Feud by Amanda James

I loved that gothic touch that was added in here, and I absolutely adored... Continue Reading →

Based on actual events that happened in the early 80's when the Virgin Mary appeared to six children in the town of Medjugorje in war-torn Yugoslavia, Pilgrim is one of those books that after its beautiful cover has grabbed your eye, immediately aims itself directly at the centre of your heart! When Charlie Carthy storms... Continue Reading →

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 Pelican by M. Naidoo

Blurb: "Because life is about living..." Julia has never been one to surrender without a fight, but when she receives a devastating diagnosis, she has a decision to make. Even after thirty years, she can still see her mother slowly fading away with every dose of chemo, every round of radiation, and every lost shred... Continue Reading →
