“Corpses in Enderby” is another good piece of 1950s detective fiction by George Bellairs. This is a nice story, but just an okay 3 star read for me. I won't be ruling out Bellairs' books in the future though (there are loads more for me to read!)
“The Fire Starters” is a fantastical story like none I've ever read before. The description is vivid and the characters are likeable. I'd recommend this to those looking for something a little different – it's 4 stars from me.
“Starve Acre” is a creepy slow-burner. I needed a lot more description to feel full immersed in this gothic story but I enjoyed it for the most part – 3 stars.
It's my stop on the blog tour for "Leaves" by John Simmons. "Leaves" is very well written story of humanity and community. Parts of the description in particular is beautiful, like reading a poem or song lyrics.
“The Hope Family Calendar” is a light and easy read looking at family relationships following a tragic loss. It was a little predictable and I felt that something was missing, but I enjoyed it - 3 stars.
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.
'Seven Days' is a really gripping thriller which kept me on the edge of my seat - 4 stars.
“The Next Forever” is a lovely story of finding romance when you least expect it. Keith and Chrissie are both realistic, likable characters that you can't help but route for and their story makes for a truly heartwarming read. It's 4 stars from me!
“A Little Romance” is a feel-good story that's a lovely addition to the Fairhill series by Alix Kelso. Exploring themes of loneliness, grief, friendship and romance, this novella is a quick read that's bound to put a smile on your face - 5 stars!
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.
