Reviews / 28th February 2019

What the publisher says: A hilarious rom com about falling in love, falling out of love, and finding out who you really are. Cat’s life has hit a brick wall. Since her ex ditched her without ceremony five years ago she’s quit stand-up comedy, landed in a steady but dull job, and lives in a tiny flat with roommates she knows only as The One Who Eats All My Food and The One Who Has Really Loud Sex. So when she bumps into old friend Harvey and sparks fly, Cat is surprised – and horrified, because Harvey is her ex’s brother, and so absolutely, 100% off-limits romantically. Even if his dimples do make her insides fizz… When she’s offered a new job abroad, Cat is tempted to accept – and leave her depressing flat and mess of a love life behind her. But will running away from her problems really solve them? Fans of Jenny Colgan, Marian Keyes and Mhairi McFarlane will love Keris Stainton!A hilarious rom com about falling in love, falling out of love, and finding out who you really are.   What I say: Cat has never quite got over her ex, Sam, the one who left her for a career in stand up in…

**BLOG TOUR** The Year of Starting Over by Karen King
Reviews / 8th February 2019

What the publisher says: What if – to find yourself – you had to run away? Last year was meant to be when Holly got her happy-ever-after. But stuck in a job that’s going nowhere, and a relationship that feels more like it’s going backwards… this year Holly has decided it’s time to change her life. She just has to: – End the relationship with the commitment-phobic boyfriend – Go on a proper adventure – Learn to be herself again – Definitely, categorically not fall in love. Cramming her belongings into her little yellow Mini, Holly drives on to a ferry bound to Spain, to stay at a remote farmhouse near a beautiful village in the Andalusian hills. But the day she arrives she nearly crashes her car into a gorgeous guy on a motorbike. He’s called Matias and their paths keep crossing, much to Holly’s irritation. Because as she learns to speak Spanish from the locals, finally starts laying out plans for her own design business, and sips sangria in the sunlit village square, Holly is beginning to remember who she is and what she wants. So she won’t allow herself be distracted by Matias. Because this year – for Holly – there are more important…

**BLOG BLITZ** If Fear Wins by Tony J Forder
Reviews / 30th May 2018

What the publisher says: When a torched body is found in a country lane, DI Bliss and Chandler are called in to investigate.   The detectives are drawn towards recent missing person reports, and believe their victim will prove to be one of them. Bliss thinks he knows which, and fears the outcome if he is proven right.   Soon the body is identified, and Bliss and Chandler discover evidence suggesting this murder might be a terrorist attack.   Meanwhile, someone from Bliss’s past needs his help, and soon he is juggling his personal life with the demanding case. To make matters more complicated, MI5 and the Counter-Terrorist Unit are called in to help solve the case. But are they on the right track?   Bliss and Chandler soon find themselves in a race against time, and this might just be their most challenging case yet… What I say: As a new author to me I wasn’t sure what to expect of this novel partly because I usually prefer my police officers to be of the female variety.  I wasn’t disappointed though as I was quickly gripped by the storyline which starts with a grizzly murder which isn’t all that…

Reviews / 19th February 2018

What the publisher says: Do you ever wish you could turn back time? Grace Nicholls has a few reasons for wanting to turn back the clock … although an archaeological dig at a Bronze Age settlement on the Yorkshire moors is not what she had in mind. But encouraged by her best friend Tabitha, that’s exactly where she finds herself. Professor Duncan McDonald is the site director and his earnest pursuit of digging up the past makes him appear distant and unreachable. But when a woman on the site goes missing, it seems that his own past might be coming back to haunt him once again. As they dig deeper, Duncan and Grace get more than they bargained for – and come to realise that the past is much closer than either of them ever imagined … What I say: Grace is talked into spending the summer on an archeological dig by her friend Tabitha.  She is not impressed by Duncan, the director of the dig but finds herself having to share a tent with him when Tabitha’s partner arrives too.  Duncan is reluctant to get close to anyone due to an incident in his past which he reveals to…
