It's my stop on the blog tour for "The Birthday House" by Jill Treseder. "The Birthday House" is a powerful short read examining a real-life murder during the 1950s. Exploring how this crime affected the lives of those who knew the family, this really is a compelling and heart-wrenching story.
Today we're celebrating “Gorgito's Ice Rink” with a birthday blitz! "Gorgito's Ice Rink" is an interesting story, especially for someone with little knowledge of Russia. This book is a tale of love, loss and broken promises that deserves a little love on its publication birthday. I'm sure many people will enjoy this story and learn a little bit while reading too.
"Three Little Truths" is a fun community story with plenty of colourful characters. I really enjoyed looking at the different lives and dynamics of the residents of Pine Road, it's 4 stars from me.
"The Familiars" is a historical story set during the time of the Pendle Witch Trials. I really enjoyed this story and would recommend it for fans of Gothic fiction. Fleetwood Shuttleworth is a likeable character who I appreciated even more when I found out she was based on a real young woman. It's 5 stars from me!
Living My Best Li(f)e is a feel-good story of friendship and community spirit that would be a ideal holiday read. It's also an important reminder that what you see on social media isn't always the truth - sometimes #livingmybestlife is a little more #livingmybestlie.
It's my stop on the “The Love Delusion” blog tour! This is a genre defying magical adventure. It was refreshing to see some strong female leads in this type of story and I really enjoyed the fast-pace. It's 4 stars from me!
It's my stop on the "Dead Guilty" blog tour! "Dead Guilty" is a gripping crime story investigating the death of British holiday-maker ten years earlier and I really enjoyed trying to work out the details of this mystery.
It’s my stop on the “I Can't Tell You Why” blog tour! "I Can't Tell You Why" tells the story of a woman questioning the decisions she has made in her love life. Recommended for fans of contemporary romance that doesn't always go to plan - it's 4 stars from me.
It’s my stop on the “In The Company of Strangers” blog tour! Debut author Awais Khan tells a captivating story giving us a peek at life in high society Pakistan. This book isn't perfect but it is an eye-opening account that I'd recommend as a kind of modern day Pakistani Anna Karenina and if you don't know much about the country, give this one a try!
It’s my stop on the “Bridge to Eternity” blog tour! "Bridge to Eternity" is an emotional rollercoaster. Full of history and memories, Romola Farr tells the story of 65 year old Audrey leaving her family and her past behind for a new life in Hawksmead, or so she says! I enjoyed this one - 4 stars.
