**BLOG TOUR** Poor Hands by Oliver Tidy
Reviews / 15th July 2017

What the publisher says: n a big old building on the south coast of Kent, David Booker runs a book-themed coffee shop and Jo Cash operates a private investigation business. They live there, too. But not like that. Jo needs help with tracing a mystery client’s living relatives. David needs help with his staffing problems.  Will they both get what they are looking for? Sometimes two heads are better than one. Sometimes a poor hand is better than none. But not always…     What I say: Poor Hands is the third installment in the Booker and Cash series.

Booker lives in the bookshop-cum-cafe he inherited from his aunt…
