"999 - My Life on the Frontline of the Ambulance Service" is an educational, sometimes heart-breaking memoir by ambulance medic Dan Farnworth. This is definitely a book that more people should be reading - it's 4 stars from me!
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!
It's my stop on the blog tour for "Coyote Fork", a contemporary thriller that'll certainly make you think about your social media usage. I was kept engaged throughout and I enjoyed the many twists and turns along the way. A strong 4 stars from me!
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.
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.
"Olive" is a book that truly resonated with me. The leading lady is flawed, she's clumsy and she's still finding her feet in the adult world. A really enjoyable audiobook and a big 5 stars from me!
"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!
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.
