It's my stop on the blog tour for "The Beach Party Mystery". This wasn't my favourite crime story, but it was still a great read. The characters are engaging and the narration had a charming feel to it. I'd definitely recommend it!
"Silver Sparrow" is a story is about two young girls trying to find their way in a dysfunctional world full of secrets and lies. This was an okay 3 star read for me and probably not one I'm going to remember long term.
I liked the short, snappy chapters and fact that the overall message is a positive one, but the story itself wasn't to my tastes. "Posioned" was a 2 star read for me, but I'd still recommend it for fantasy fans, or someone who enjoys fairy tale retellings.
"Postscript" is a wonderful follow up to the bestseller "P.S. I Love You". Author Cecelia Ahern allows us to catch up with Holly Kennedy 7 years later and does so beautifully. I really liked this one, a strong 4 stars!
It's my stop on the blog tour for "Diary of a Prison Officer", an enjoyable, educational read, shining a light on a failing prison system in desperate need of reform.
"Mordecai's Ashes" is a really entertaining murder mystery featuring Karl Larsson, the new owner of an established detective agency. The story was well written and kept me engaged throughout. A really good 4 stars from me!
“The Courage to Care” is an honest collection of anecdotes which teach us about nursing in the wider community. I have nothing but respect for author Christie Watson, and all nurses who have the courage to care unconditionally. The style was a little bit off for me, but overall this was a really enjoyable 4 stars.
The Rampart Trilogy is shaping up to be a fantastic series of dystopian fantasy. The second in the trilogy, “The Trials of Koli” was a really enjoyable read, exploring an already well-established world in even more detail. This was a strong 4 stars for me!
“Before Her” is a short memoir of Jacqueline Woodson's romantic history. It's warm and moving in places. I didn't love it, but it was really enjoyable - I'm giving my first read of The One collection 3 stars.
It's my stop on the blog tour for “For When I'm Gone”, an emotional, heartfelt story about human resilience. I really appreciate the personal experience that went into this well written debut - 4 stars.
