It's my stop on the blog tour for 'The Beekeeper of Aleppo'. This is a beautifully written story of survival. Following the journey of husband and wife Nuri and Afra from Syria to the UK, this is a heart warming, informative read that I would highly recommend - 5 stars!
It's my stop on the “Blood on His Hands” blog tour! This is a well detailed, gripping piece of crime fiction. I was kept guessing who was responsible for the increasing body count right up until the end. It’s 4 stars from me!
“The Foundling” is a historical story set in Georgian London. This was my favourite read of the year so far and I think it'll be difficult to beat. The story is atmospheric, the characters are strong and the history is fascinating too. It’s 5 stars from me!
I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy 'Small Thoughts: and Poetry' and I'd encourage you to pick this up, even if you don't think that poetry is for you as this is conversational, like having a chat with one of your friends. This is an honest, emotional collection which I'm rating 4 stars!
It's my stop on the blog tour for "The 24-Hour Cafe'! This is a lovely read which I'd definitely recommend for fans of contemporary fiction. Hannah and Mona have a wonderful friendship which feels so real and the customers they serve in the cafe have some interesting stories too. I'm giving this one 4 stars!
It's my stop on the blog tour for "The Home"! This is a hard hitting, compelling read about the death of a vulnerable young girl and the circumstances that lead to it. It's not a walk in the park, but rather an intelligent story full of emotion. I'm giving this one 4 stars!
It's my stop on the blog tour! Touching on themes of friendship, forgiveness and metal health, “The Fathers, the Sons and the Anxious Ghost” is a lovely little novella told from the perspective of six connected men.
It's my stop on the blog tour for 'A Dark Matter', I've been won over by the Skelf women and the mysteries they are trying to uncover in this story. This is a unique mystery and thriller that will keep you engaged throughout. It's 5 stars from me!
Written with admirable passion, Dr Amanda Brown's memoir 'The Prison Doctor' was definitely my cup of tea. I really enjoyed reading about the range of situations that she has to deal with on a daily basis - 5 stars!
Full of twists and turns, 'Haven't They Grown' is a fast paced, unique story that I really enjoyed. I didn't see the ending coming and I was kept engaged throughout. It's 4 stars from me!
