"A Knife for Harry Dodd" is a wonderful piece of detective fiction originally published in the 1950s. George Bellairs tells a very British story of murders in the countryside which I mostly enjoyed but a few niggles here and there knocked a couple of points off in my eyes - 3 stars.
Despite enjoying some parts of this story of an inter-racial family in the seventies, I found most of it to be slow moving and really not that interesting. "Everything I Never Told You" seems to be well reviewed by others, but unfortunately isn't going to win any awards in my books - 2 stars.
It’s my stop on the “The Perfect Moment” blog tour! This is a fun, feel-good romance that will leave you with a smile on your face. The four main characters are likable and warm and you'll be routing for them all to have happy endings!
It’s my stop on the “Proximity” blog tour! An enjoyable and somewhat unnerving peek at what technology could be like in our future. "Proximity" is fast-paced, imaginative and could easily be featured as the next episode of "Black Mirror". It's a big 5 stars from me!
"Ponti" is funny, sad and awkward, unlike anything I've read in a long time. I loved this book from Sharlene Teo and can't wait to see what she writes next - 5 stars!
“The Promise Between Us” is a powerful and educational story which addresses the less well-known side of OCD and explores how such an illness can affect a family. I'm giving this book 4 stars – thanks again to Rachel at Rachel's Random Resources and author Barbara Claypole White for the opportunity to read this book!
“Expectation” explores how female friendships change over time. I found it to be very relatable and enjoyed learning about the lives and friendships between Hannah, Cate and Lissa. It’s 5 stars from me!
A beautifully written love song to the piano, "The Forest of Wool and Steel" is a truly captivating story. Another piece of Japanese literature that I really enjoyed, it's 4 stars from me.
It’s my stop on the “The Wrong Envelope” blog tour! A quaint story of romance in the 1920s in rural Devon. Bernard Cavalier doesn't make a great first impression and his second one isn't much better either, but he's determined to make this relationship work. A charming 4 stars for Liz Treacher's "The Wrong Envelope".
Another month, another book in the post! It's already May and time for the next Rare Birds Book Club book!
