book blurb

The light in her wide brown eyes dimmed as she drew her last breath. She might have been beautiful lying there on the floor, if it wasn’t for the purple marks on her neck and the angry red line on her finger where her wedding band used to be…

When Jeanine Hammond is found dead in a hotel in the picture-perfect town of Oakhust, newly-promoted Detective Jo Fournier is thrown into a disturbing case. Who would murder this shy, loving wife and leave her body posed like a ballerina?

Jo wants to know why Jeanine’s husband is so controlling about money, and where Jeanine’s wedding ring is, but before she and her team can get close to the truth, another woman is found strangled in a hotel, arms placed gracefully above her head like a dancer.

While digging through old case files, Jo makes a terrifying link to a series of cold cases: each victim bears the same strangulation marks. But the FBI won’t take Jo seriously, and if she disobeys direct orders by investigating the killings outside of her jurisdiction, it will mean the end of the career she’s already sacrificed so much for, even her relationship.

Just as Jo is beginning to lose hope, she finds messages on the victims’ computers that make her question whether these small-town women were hiding big lies. Jo thinks this is the missing link between the victims, but she knows the killer is moments away from selecting his next victim. Will it lead her to the most twisted killer of her career in time, or will another innocent life be lost? 

An absolutely unputdownable and brilliant new crime thriller series that fans of Robert Dugoni, Lisa Regan and Melinda Leigh will devour in one sitting.

M.M. Chouinard’s first fiction story was published in her local paper when she was eight, and she fell in love with Agatha Christie novels not long after. While pursuing a Ph.D in psychology and helping to found the first U.S. research university of the new millenium, the stories kept rattling around inside her skull, demanding to come out. For sanity’s sake, she released them. She’s currently at work on her seventh novel.

What a debut book!

I loved everything about this book, from the characters, the plot, the setting, the pace and even the killer!

M.M. Chouinard drew me in like a moth to a flame, once those pages started turning I just couldn’t stop. I liked how we ‘got to know’ the killer, back story is everything and these parts didn’t disappoint.

I highly recommend The Dancing Girls and can’t wait to see where this series takes us!!

review by nicola
I will never look at my sister the same after reading this book!
I feel like I know everything about her but do I?! Is she who she says she is? Does she work where she says she does? I’d like to hope so 😕
The book starts bit a bang, and, well, the life of Jessica unravels in front of us. Poor Simon, Jessica’s brother, has to deal with the aftermath of the accident but things don’t add up!
How he keeps it together is beyond me, I wanted to scream at parts (and not just at the answering machine!) Jessica isn’t there to help explain the things that Simon discovers and that’s got to be frustrating for him….. so many questions!
Even though this is classed as a novella it felt like a lengthy book, enough to keep me guessing and turning those pages. I enjoyed every page, every question, every niggling feeling.
Highly recommend it.

Dyed Souls Cover.jpg

Dyed Souls by Gary Santorella 

book blurb

Described by John Lloyd of The Bookbag as “Catcher in the Cuckoo’s Nest,” Dyed Souls is a gritty coming-of-age literary novel, set in a residential treatment center in 1980’s California.
Charlie Lyle loves science, natural history, and the world of the mind, and it is his refuge and salvation as he copes with his drug-addicted mother and a world of circumstances well-beyond his grasp. More a work of philosophy than psychology, “For the teen it has a galling coming-of-age, redemption quest. For the adult it has that, as well as a literary look at a singular fictional life.”

review by nicola

What a book!

Poor Charlie! Pulled from his loving grandparents, living in a home for troubled teens and a Mother…. well, I have a few choice names for her 😡😠 !!

This story has me happy, sad, smiling, sad, a couple of tears and at moments curing a character or two.

It just goes to show that not everyone’s life is perfect, in fact some have the very crappy end of the stick and that things can be put on for show….. you never really know what goes on behind closed doors.

I highly recommend Dyed Souls, in fact my teen has just downloaded it onto her kindle!

book blurb

The sky is cornflower blue, the air is scented with the smell of fresh apple blossom and Lizzie Lovell can’t wait to start her new life in the mill on Magnolia Lane. But is she just about to fall in love with someone she shouldn’t? 

When Lizzie loses her larger-than-life Dad she doesn’t know how to move forward. Encouraged by a childhood dream she shared with her beloved father, she is determined to continue his legacy and moves to the old Mill on Magnolia lane, a place he had always longed to own.

Restoring the old windmill is a much bigger job than Lizzie bargained for, especially when she is distracted by her new next door neighbour Jude, who has temptingly twinkly eyes and a body to die for. But when Jude’s ex- girlfriend Harriet arrives back on the scene, Lizzie begins to wonder if life wasn’t far simpler before she moved to the mill. Especially when it emerges that Harriet knows something about Jude’s past, something that could shatter her new start and her heart into smithereens …

If your heart is warmed by Jenny Colgan, Lucy Diamond and Josie Silver’s One Day in December, you’ll fall in love with this beautiful feel-good story about finding love when you least expect it.

Tilly Tennant was born in Dorset, the oldest of four children, but now lives in Staffordshire with a family of her own. After years of dismal and disastrous jobs, including paper plate stacking, shop girl, newspaper promotions and waitressing (she never could carry a bowl of soup without spilling a bit), she decided to indulge her passion for the written word by embarking on a degree in English and creative writing. She wrote a novel in 2007 during her first summer break at university and has not stopped writing since. She also works as a freelance fiction editor, and considers herself very lucky that this enables her to read many wonderful books before the rest of the world gets them.

Hopelessly Devoted to Holden Finn was her debut novel; published in 2014 it was an Amazon bestseller in both the UK and Australia. In 2016 she signed to the hugely successful Bookouture and is currently working on her next Tilly Tennant novel. She also writes as Sharon Sant, where she explores the darker side of life, and Poppy Galbraith, where things get a little crazier.

michelle review

I loved this book and found it hard to put down. The first chapter pulls you in and entices you to read more.

The story tells of Lizzie who buys a old Mill to renovate following the loss of her father and who had always loved the mill himself.

Although she moves to the Mill as a single lady, soon romance is in the air……….

There are many twists and turns and I love how it all ties together. The characters are very likeable and believable and the author has a great way of making you feel like you can relate to the characters.

A lovely summer read with a feel good story. Another fab read from the author Tilly Tennant.

falling for him…

A sweet romantic read that felt like it was set in a past time 😍

I LOVED how this book was set out, I’m not usually a mushy book reader but Sarah Bennett awakens the girly girl in me with her books and this one didn’t disappoint!

A fun loving book (with a sprinkle of naughtiness) that can be picked up and put down or devoured in one go.

Book 1 of a series of 3, you know it’s going to be a book for each Ludworth, I can’t wait to see what Sarah has planned for Tristan and Iggy.

#BlogTour #Excerpt #WaysOfTheDoomed by Moira McPartlin | @moiramcpartlin  @FledglingPress   #LoveBooksGroupTours

Ways-of-the-Doomed-Front-Cover.jpg

Book 1 of The Sun Song Trilogy.

book blurb

It’s the year 2089 and everything is altered. The revolutions of the early 21st century have created a world divided – between the Privileged few and the Native (Celtic) underclass. Sorlie is enjoying a typical carefree Privileged teenage life until it is smashed apart by the cruel death of his parents and he is spirited away to live with his ice-cold grandfather at a mysterious island penal colony. Sorlie’s discovery that the captives are being genetically altered to remove all trace of their Native origins triggers a chain of shocking events that reveal his grandfather’s terrible secrets and, ultimately, the truth about himself.

Buy Link

https://amzn.to/2Tforhz

excerpt

The native smelled of vinegar; always.  Even on the days when she dressed in her best green overalls and walked from the Base to the market in the nearest Urban.

Her name was Ishbel.  I knew this because I overheard Ma call her name once when I was small and playing my favourite game of spying under the table.

‘Ishbel, can you try and find some fresh dairy products for Somhairle? It’s difficult I know but you can do it.’ There was a little laugh in her voice of a shared joke, as if the native was her friend.  Then later that same afternoon Ma found me in my spying den and went radge at the native for no good reason.

Although Ishbel’s uniform was drab it suited her copper hair and her eyes which always reminded me of pieces of amber. Each time I looked in their shiny brightness I saw something ‘far away’ trapped there.  Sounds lame I know but it’s true.

In all the time she lived with us she spoke few words to my parents. When I was small she told me old tales of men and women who lived long ago on those islands now inhabited by prisoners.  She sang me stories in her ancient language and promised to teach me the words of her long dead ancestor’s songs, but that day never came. Her greatest trick was to imitate the birds that lived in the Designated Park areas.  Her other good game was to draw pictures of extinct birds and animals that inhabited these shores up until only a decade ago then get me to choose the picture that matched the weird sounds she made. Sometimes the sounds were so bizarre I giggled till I almost wet my pants.

When she laughed, which was rarely, normally at something daft I did, her whole face moved. She’d throw back her head so far her throat stretched like a swan and I could see right past her white shell-like teeth to the pink of her gullet.

I asked her once if she was happy.  She just smiled and brushed the hair from my eyes before returning to her many tasks.

book blurb

Josie works until her arms ache, until the paramedics arrive and pull her gently away from the woman’s cold, fragile body. Noah’s voice cracks beside her as he calls the time of death for his own, beloved mother.

Arriving with her partner Noah for dinner at his family’s immaculate countryside home, Detective Josie Quinn is devastated to find Noah’s mother, Colette, lying lifeless in the back garden, her mouth clogged with soil.

Searching the house for answers, Josie’s team don’t know what to make of the rosary beads buried in the dirt near the body, or the hidden file labelled “Drew Pratt”, the small town of Denton’s most famous missing person.

As she delves deeper into Pratt’s case, Josie quickly discovers he had a brother whose body mysteriously washed up on the banks of a river. There’s also a diary entry suggesting that Colette may have met him on the last day he was seen alive. Can Josie believe the unthinkable, that a kind old soul like Colette might have been involved in their murders? And, will Josie’s new relationship with Noah survive the accusation?

Josie’s only hope lies in tracking down Pratt’s daughter. But when she arrives at her home to find she’s been murdered just minutes before, Josie knows the real killer is one step ahead and won’t stop until Colette’s secret is buried forever. With many more innocent lives on the line, how deep is Josie prepared dig to reach the truth?

An absolutely unputdownable crime thriller that will have you up all night! If you love Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni or Rachel Caine you’re guaranteed to be hooked from page one.

Book 5 in the Josie Quinn Series and my mind is blown!!

Like seriously

B.L.O.W.N!

I’ve loved Josie from the very first book, caring, loyal and hard as they come…. she certainly knows how to take a punch or two.

Throughout the series I’ve seen her battle relationships so I’ve had my fingers crossed for a good relationship for her for the last couple of books and Noah seems to be the one (PLEASE be the one!) But this case is close to home, a bit too close to home and Josie struggles, which i think we all would in this situation.

The story line is so gripping you need to book free time because you won’t be putting this book down any time soon! Like all 5 books it’s action packed, detailed and has to reading into the small hours (totally worth the lack of sleep if you ask me)

I have to say this is my favourite book of the series 😱 and I’m not sure how the author, Lisa Regan is going to top it!

I’m amazed on how gripping this series has been and I’m hoping for more, a lot more of Josie and her team. Now if someone wouldn’t  mind helping me pick my jaw up from the floor, that would be great!

If I had 6 golden apples I’d give it 6!!!

book blurb

Call it mother’s intuition, but I knew she was dead the moment she was late home. As I listened to her phone ring and ring, that’s when I knew for sure. My little girl was gone.

Twenty years ago, Sophie Nicoll never came home from school. Days later her body was found in a shallow grave on a remote farm a few miles from her hometown. Two boys from her school were found guilty. The press called the boys evil. Sophie’s family wanted them dead. The judge promised they’d never walk free.

Two decades later and schoolgirl Shannon Ross has vanished from a small town in the Scottish Highlands.

It’s Detective Jessie Blake’s first big case since she joined Perthshire Police. Having recently arrived from London, Jessie lives in fear of people finding out about her past and her reasons for moving north.

When Shannon’s body is found in the river on the outskirts of Inverlochty, Jessie discovers she’s not the only one with something to hide. As the small community begins to crack under pressure, people begin to point fingers. And soon, the big secrets hidden within the small town are revealed – with devastating consequences.

This shocking crime thriller set in the dramatic Scottish Highlands will have you reading well into the night. If you like LJ Ross, Cara Hunter or Robert Bryndza, you will absolutely love this.

Kerry is a new author to me, after reading the blurb I was hooked! The cover and the story line drew me in like a moth the a flame.

This story is gripping, action packed and twisty turny. There are a lot of characters in this story, some of which I got confused with and found myself having to turn back a page to get back on track.

It seems this whole village has a secret or two, I never knew who to trust, even though some of them I should have trusted but for myself guessing their motives.

Great plot

Great story

Armour Piercing
by Peter Aengenheister

book blurb

A defecting Russian space scientist, awaiting debrief, is in a Warwickshire safe house that comes under attack by an assassination squad. He escapes with plans for a conspiracy involving key members of secret services across the Western world. The only person he knows in the UK, or could possibly trust, is Pete Armour, the man who was to be his de-briefer. Killed before he can reach safety, he has hidden the secret papers where only Armour could ever find them. Armour becomes the target when he and a female newspaper reporter find themselves thrust together and on the run from at least two secret service agencies and British Intelligence, who seem more hell bent on killing him than helping him. And there is a price to pay. There’s always a price to pay. This is the first of the Armour trilogy. A gripping read. Fast-paced, a thriller packed with action, twists and turns.

I’m putting the book under a ‘slow burn’ read, if these aren’t your type of reads I beg you….. STICK WITH IT!

It’s worth it a 100 times over!

I loved every part of this book, the action, the twists and the story line. Once the pace of the story picked up so did the pace of my page turning, once I’m hooked I’m in it for the long haul and Peter Aengenheis didn’t let me down.

If book one is anything to go by, I’m looking forward to seeing and reading what Peter brings us next!

WOW! Just WOW!

This has to be a must read for 2019!!

Dan Proops has done an amazing job with A Letter From Sarah. I don’t know how Adam hasn’t already snapped from the pressure, a Father who he has a love/hate relationship with, a Sister who has been missing for 7 years with no clues as to why, a girlfriend (Cassandra) who I took an instant dislike to….. and don’t even get me started on Nigal!

I loved every page of this book, a book that’s written, in a way, that I felt like I was right there with Adam. Feeling what he felt and hanging onto those letters that I wished and hoped sooo much that they were from Sarah, it all seemed so real.

I was totally invested in this story, from the first page to the very last. It toyed with my emotions, I felt sadness, loss and heart break but also felt infuriated at the same time…. who knew a book could do that?!

Loved the inside of the book too, it looks liked ripped paper pages with a lovely NYC skyline, great tie in to the story.

A great read, highly recommended and an easy 5 golden apple rating from me! Hats off Dan, hats off!
