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!
"Perfect Remains" is a great start to the D.I. Callanach series by Helen Fields. I really enjoyed the narration in this audiobook and the crime story kept me gripped too. This was a 4 star read for me, not quite perfect, but very good!
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!
“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!
"The Salt Path" tells the true story of a couple walking the South West Coast Path. It's wonderfully written and I enjoyed the narration too. With some important messages, this is a thought-provoking read about taking life day by day. It was a great 4 star read 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.
“Unnatural Causes” is a fascinating read. Dr Richard Shepard tells the story of his life and career working as a forensic pathologist. This is an interesting, honest and human look at his role and the events that required his involvement. I really enjoyed this - 5 stars!
"Gilding the Lily" is a domestic drama full of secrets, lies and plenty of arguments too. I had a couple of niggles, but in general found this to be enjoyable story with unexpected ending.
