BLOG TOUR BANNER - C+R Magical Adventures

Review:

Thank you to Jill Burkinshaw for inviting me on this tour and Joanna Larum for providing me with a copy of the book.

This is not my usual kind of book but I enjoy a bit of magic so I thought I’d give it a go!

Charlie and Rosie are just normal kids until one day when Charlie, running late for school runs into a strange woman who gives him a cube that he must protect. He finds out that he is the keeper of the casket, an ancient jail that houses the most evil creatures on the planet.

The Leven Casket is a fabulous adventure for children, full of magic, mayhem and plenty of peril.

Charlie and Rosie are terrific characters who compliment each other well, Rosie being brave and smart, Charlie, who’s just as brave and smart but a little more cautious.

I loved Apertaxus the dragon or Taxus for short, because well, who doesn’t love a talking dragon?  Anyway, he’s a little grumpy, a little sassy but he’s got a big heart. 

I did feel like the story was a little rushed in places but of course that’s just my opinion.

The Leven Casket great little adventure and a good start to this magical series.

About The Author:

I only went to school to learn to read. At age 6, I decided I COULD read and promptly left, by the school gate, the same gate which my mother marched me back through 10jo minutes later. So I had to spend the next 12 years at school, learning lots of different things, none of which lived up to the excitement of reading. Wanting to be a writer was a natural progression, because there is nothing as exciting as inventing the story yourself. But it’s taken over 50 years before I dared to present my stories for other people to read. So, here they are! I’ll just creep behind the sofa.

#Review Finding Miranda by Iris Chacon #NetGalley

Title: Finding Miranda by Iris Chacon

Date Published: 21st December 2018 

Genre: Romantic Suspense 

Description:

How come nobody ever sees Miranda Ogilvy– except one smoking-hot neighbor and one stone cold killer?

The tiny village called “Minokee” (Seminole for “alligators all over the place”) is chock full of mysteries like that, and like:

Who is the hunky neighbor, Shepard Krausse, how in heck did he find the invisible Miranda, and why does such a nice guy have such deadly enemies?

Who killed Miranda’s Aunt Phyllis?

Is Shepard’s guide dog, Dave, really the smartest guy in town?

Why does old Miz Cleary keep a loaded rifle beside her front porch rocking chair?

The big question for readers of this quirky novel is, “Who (or what) will find Miranda before Shep’s homicidal enemies do?”

Rated #1 mystery (2017) by Library Journal Indie Book Awards, and #1 fiction audiobook (2018) by Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards, with multiple other awards.

Get Finding Miranda, book 1 of the Minokee Mysteries series. You’ll want to re-read it for a dose of sunshine whenever you’re feeling down!

Review:

Truthfully when I spotted this on NetGalley, I thought what a cute cover and didn’t really pay that much attention to the blurb but it turned out to be a good little read!

Miranda inherits a house in the small town of Minokee from her late aunt who dropped dead suddenly. Used to being practically invisible to everyone she’s shocked when the town’s heartthrob, Shepard Krausse notices her. 

But Miranda has made some powerful enemies without even knowing and they’re gunning for her and Shepard but she has no idea why!

Finding Miranda is one of the most fun reads I’ve picked up in awhile! It’s quirky, it’s fast paced and there’s a nice sprinkling of humour throughout.

The characters were all good fun but I really connected with Miranda, that feeling of being invisible is something that I can relate to. 

I liked the town of Minokee. it’s pretty much a few houses on the edge of a jungle in Florida. I personally wouldn’t like to live there as a) I can’t stand the heat and b) it’s far too close to nature for my liking but I’d enjoy sitting round with the elderly residents because they just seem like a lot of fun!

I admit it’s probably a little heavier on the romance than the suspense than I would have liked but of course that’s just my opinion.

Finding Miranda is a perfect little pick me up, fun, lighthearted and doesn’t take itself too seriously.

About The Author:

Iris Chacon’s family first arrived in Florida when it was a Spanish colony, in the 1700s. In Iris’s stories, her characters find romance, mystery, and joy on the peninsula and its islands.

Florida locales are essential characters in all of Iris’s feel-good novels, along with a smattering of humor, romance, mystery, and adventure. Expect a few hours of good, clean, fun when sitting down with an Iris Chacon story.

In FINDING MIRANDA, a blind deejay has no trouble at keeping track of a librarian who seems invisible to everyone else. He has to work hard, however, to keep her safe from men who are trying to murder her. His knowledge and skill in the Florida swamp-forest is the couple’s biggest asset in the final showdown with would-be killers.

In SYLVIE’S COWBOY, a Florida horse rancher and polo player inherits the spoiled daughter of a deceased business partner. They must adjust to sharing his rural ranch home despite her Palm Beach tastes. In the end, they must save one another from her father’s murderer.

MUDSILLS & MOONCUSSERS is a tale of the War Between the States as it played out in Key West, literally the Southernmost town in America – which was occupied by Northern soldiers. A Yankee spy seeking a Rebel saboteur finds, to his dismay, that she may in fact be the woman he loves.

SCHIFFLEBEIN’S FOLLY tells the story of a Miami man who adopts six special-needs children, and then looks for a wife. Six house rabbits, dishonest politicians, and a talking teapot complicate his life until he must rely on supernatural help to resolve his bizarre household’s difficulties.

In addition to lifelong familiarity with all things Florida, Iris has also adopted a special-needs child, kept house rabbits, and spent time in all the places mentioned in her novels.

She and her husband have a small-town home in rural Florida, where her family members have lived since the early 1900s.

Not limited to novels and stories, Iris has also written for radio, stage, and screen. She has worn many hats – including musician, teacher, and librarian.

#BlogTour #Review Last Request by Liz Mistry @LizMistryAuthor @HQstories

Title: Last Request by Liz Mistry

Publisher: HQ

Date Published: 16th October 2019

Genre: Police Procedural

Description:

‘You only have one shot at this. Your message to someone you love. What is your last request?’

When human remains are discovered under Bradford’s derelict Odeon car park, DS Nikita Parekh and her team are immediately called to the scene.

Distracted by keeping her young nephew out of trouble, Nikki is relieved when the investigation is transferred to the Cold Case Unit, and she can finally focus on her family.

But after the identity of the victim is revealed, she’s soon drawn back into the case. The dead man is a direct link to her painful past.

As the body count begins to rise, Nikki must do everything she can to stop the killer in their tracks before anyone else gets hurt – even if it means digging up secrets she had long kept hidden…

For readers of Angela Marsons and Helen H. Durrant comes a gritty new crime series featuring bold, brave and ferocious D.S. Nikki Parekh.

Last Request Banner

Review:

I love Liz Mistry’s Gus McGuire series so I knew I had to give this new detective Nikki Parekh a go!

When a skeleton is dug up under a car park, it brings up some uncomfortable secrets from Nikki’s past. As the body count rises, Nikki must put her own issues aside to find the killer.

Last Request is a gritty and hard hitting police procedural with a diverse cast of characters.

As always with Liz Mistry’s books, her attention to detail and ability to make believable characters really comes across in this novel. 

Nikki is a complex and multifaceted character. A single mum with three kids, by two different dads, dual heritage and Hindu to boot. She’s quite an abrasive person at the beginning of the novel, I personally didn’t find her all that likeable, but as the story goes on and we get to know her and her painful past, I warmed to her.

As it’s the first in the series, we’re getting to know the characters, which I felt dragged the pace a little in the first part of the book but it does pick up in the second half. 

Last Request is a good start to series and I’m interested to see where the story will head next!

About the Author:

Born in Scotland, Made in Bradford sums up Liz Mistry’s life. Over thirty years ago she Liz+Mistry_upscaled_image_x4moved from a small village in West Lothian to Yorkshire to get her teaching degree. Once here, Liz fell in love with three things; curries, the rich cultural diversity of the city … and her Indian husband (not necessarily in this order). Now thirty years, three children, two cats (Winky and Scumpy) and a huge extended family later, Liz uses her experiences of living and working in the inner city to flavour her writing. Her gritty crime fiction police procedural novels set in Bradford embrace the city she describes as ‘Warm, Rich and Fearless’ whilst exploring the darkness that lurks beneath.

Struggling with severe clinical depression and anxiety for a large number of years, Liz often includes mental health themes in her writing. She credits the MA in Creative Writing she took at Leeds Trinity University with helping her find a way of using her writing to navigate her ongoing mental health struggles. Being a debut novelist in her fifties was something Liz had only dreamed of and she counts herself lucky, whilst pinching herself regularly to make sure it’s all real. One of the nicest things about being a published author is chatting with and responding to readers’ feedback and Liz regularly does events at local libraries, universities, literature festivals and open mics. She also teaches creative writing too. Now, having nearly completed a PhD in Creative Writing focussing on ‘the absence of the teen voice in adult crime fiction’ and ‘why expansive narratives matter’, Liz is chock full of ideas to continue writing.

In her spare time, Liz loves pub quizzes (although she admits to being rubbish at them), dancing (she does a mean jig to Proud Mary – her opinion, not ratified by her family), visiting the varied Yorkshire landscape, with Robin Hoods Bay being one of her favourite coastal destinations, listening to music, reading and blogging about all things crime fiction on her blog, The Crime Warp.

Blog Tour - Severed

Review:

Wow, I can’t believe this is Jason Smith’s tenth outing and his most shocking case yet!

Jason Smith is back to his old tricks of taking all the worries of the world on his shoulders and not letting people in, especially after the end of his last case came a little too close to his family for comfort. Another intriguing case comes up and he just can’t help getting involved. Young female students are being found drained of blood. Is there a vampire running around York or something even more sinister?

Severed is a fast paced police procedural that sucked me in from the very beginning with, I have to say, one of the most gobsmacking endings in this series.

I really enjoyed the killer’s POV that ran throughout the book which really added the creep factor to the story.

I did have an inkling who the killer was early on but there were plenty of twists and turns along the way that kept me guessing and a bombshell or two I didn’t see coming.

Severed is riveting read that has me eager to see what happens next.

About The Author:

After reading English at 3 Universities and graduating from none of them, I set off travelling around the world with my wife, Ann, finally settling in South Africa, where we still live.SG Author photo (4)

In 2014 Ann dropped a rather large speaker on my head and I came up with the idea for a detective series. DS Jason Smith was born. Smith, the first in the series was finished a few months later.

3 years and 8 DS Smith books later, Joffe Books wondered if I would be interested in working with them. As a self-published author, I agreed. However, we decided on a new series – the DC Harriet Taylor Cornwall series.

The Beekeeper was published and soon hit the number one spot in Australia. The second in the series, The Perfect Murder did just as well.

I continued to self-publish the Smith series and Unworthy hit the shelves in 2018 with amazing results. I therefore made the decision to self-publish The Backpacker which is book 3 in the Detective Harriet Taylor series which was published in July 2018.

After The Backpacker I had an idea for a totally new start to a series – a collaboration between the Smith and Harriet thrillers and The Enigma was born. It brings together the broody, enigmatic Jason Smith and the more level-headed Harriet Taylor.

Miranda is something totally different. A stand-alone psychological thriller, it is a real departure from anything else I’ve written before.

Severed, book 10 in the DS Jason Smith series is now available. I am currently writing Mistress, the sequel to Miranda.

Extract from Mama’s Gone (Book 4):

Mama's Gone - High Resolution

February 1997

Zing. Alice first heard a whizzing noise and then felt a sharp movement of air – way before she saw anything. And then it was all too late. She turned to her Mama sat to her left as the woman’s head hurtled backward. The red circular mess where an eye once was. The blast of brain and skull that splattered the wall. Bobby threw himself toward Mary Lou to protect her from the assault, but there was no point. 

He scurried over and lay on his dead wife as Alice hit the deck. Nikolay drew his revolver almost before the bullet flew through Mama, Alice thought. Lara Mikhailov dragged him down to the floor. Nobody in the room was above window height and there had been no fourth shot.

Anyone else hurt?”

Three shots, one dead. A professional hit for sure. Worthy of the great Arnold Roach, may he rest in peace. Alice held her snub nose ready for action and Bobby cradled Mary Lou in his arms, rocking them side-to-side in the first moments of his grief.

Alice glanced at Bobby and looked at Nikolay. Had his gun been out before the zing? Couldn’t be certain of anything right now. Events unfolded around her and she felt completely estranged from them. Despite the body lying near her feet, Alice didn’t believe Mama was dead. She saw it was true, but it meant nothing to her. Like the world stopped still and she carried on breathing – only she continued on the sidelines as everything flowed ever onwards.

Nikolay’s bodyguard, Mikhailov edged to a window and cautiously inched her head to spot the sniper. Nada. Nikolay Markov spoke to her but Alice couldn’t discern a single word – still trapped in her time-slipped bubble. His mouth moved again but his expression became more aggressive. Angry.

What just happened?”

We know nothing of this. My mother’s been killed. You think I’d do that? To my Mama?”

Alice found a pistol lying in her hand, which she must have taken out of her handbag. An unconscious action. She glanced round and Bobby had let go of Mary Lou, holding a revolver. Someone would pay for killing her Mama.

#BlogTour #BookReview What Falls Between The Cracks by Robert Scragg @robert_scragg @MorecambeVice #CrimeWritingFestival @BOTBSPublicity

Today is my stop on the Morecambe and Vice blog tour where I’m bringing you my review of What falls between the cracks by Robert Scragg:

robert scragg

Title: What Falls Between The Cracks (Porter & Styles 1) by Robert Scragg

Date Published: 19th April 2018

Publisher: Allison & Bushby

Genre: Police Procedural

Description:

When a severed hand is found in an abandoned flat, Detective Jake Porter and his partner Nick Styles are able to DNA match the limb to the owner, Natasha Barclay, who has not been seen in decades. But why has no one been looking for her? It seems that Natasha’s family are the people who can least be trusted. Delving into the details behind her disappearance and discovering links to another investigation, a tragic family history begins to take on a darker twist. Hampered by a widespread fear of a local heavy, as well as internal politics and possible corruption within the force, Porter and Styles are digging for answers, but will what they find ever see the light of day?

Midland Announce

Review:

I want to thank Sarah at Books on The Bright Side Publicity for inviting me on this tour and the author for providing me with a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

The book opens with the discovery of a severed hand in a flat that looks like it’s been abandoned for years. Further investigation shows it belongs to a young woman called Natasha Barclay but she hasn’t been seen since 1983. Detectives Porter and Styles are assigned to this baffling case.

What Falls Between The Cracks is a cleverly crafted and well written police procedural. It’s Robert Scragg’s debut novel and the first in the Porter and Styles series.

The two detectives were a bit of chalk and cheese. Porter is a damaged character, still grieving for his wife and refusing point blank to face anything to do with her death, throwing himself into his work. Then there’s Styles, a bit of a joker and happily married. I really enjoyed the banter between Porter and Styles throughout the novel, gave a bit of relief in all the intensity of the case.

While I appreciate we get to know Porter and Styles outside of the job, I did feel like I got a little distracted from what should have been the main story, especially by the death of Porter’s wife. Also the pace was a little off for me, sometimes fast, other times it dragged a little.

What Falls Between The Cracks is an intriguing and intense police procedural that is a good start to this series.

#BooksOnTour A Purrfect Alibi by Leighann Dobbs @leighanndobbs @bookouture #NewRelease #CozyMystery

Title: A Purrfect Alibi by Leighann Dobbs

Date Published: 18th September 2019

Publisher: Bookouture

Genre: Cozy Mystery

Description:

Fortune tellers and mediums have descended on the Oyster Cove Guesthouse, determined to finally solve the mystery of local seafarer Jedediah Biddeford’s murder 300 years ago. New owner Josie Waters has suddenly got bigger problems than burning the breakfasts: she’s up to her elbows in tarot cards and tea leaves…

When one of the mediums is found dead with an ominous note nearby, everything points to Jedediah’s ghost being the culprit. Suddenly, Josie finds that the fate of her guesthouse depends on not one murder but two, and she’s not going to rely on a crystal ball for answers. Despite the fact that cookbooks and candlesticks keep mysteriously falling off tables, Josie is sure there’s no such thing as ghosts. But guesthouse cats Nero and Marlowe know better…

Aided by her mom and eccentric family friend Millie, Josie sets out to prove the identity of the killer without summoning any spirits. Luckily Nero and Marlowe know the truth about ghosts, ghouls and things that go bump in the night and they are on the case! Can they make Josie realize she is scratching up the wrong tree before the killer strikes again?

From the bestselling author of the USA Today bestselling Mystic Notch series, purrfect for fans of Adele Abbott, cat lovers and anybody who loves to curl up with a page-turning cozy mystery.

Review:

So I’m back at the Oyster Bay Guest House, with Nero, Marlowe and their human Josie, along with her mum Rose and friend Millie. This is the third in the series, it can be read as a stand alone but I’d highly recommend reading the book before, A Whisker In The Dark because there’s bit of crossover story wise.

There’s ghostly high jinks afoot as the guest house is full of mediums and psychics all trying to find Jedediah Biddeford’s missing treasure and uncover his killer. Madam Zenda claims to be in contact with Jed but ends up dead with a letter of warning to stay away from the guest house. Did a Jed’s ghost really come back and kill her? Nero, Marlowe and Josie are on the case.

A Purrfect Alibi is a fun, fur filled mystery that I couldn’t get enough of!

I can’t tell you how much this series always manages to cheer me up. It’s chock full of loveable characters, great mysteries and with a little hint of romance in there too. I genuinely never thought I’d be a fan of animals as sleuths but now I just can’t get enough.

Truthfully I had the murderer pegged quite early on, but Leighann Dobbs really kept me guessing, doubting that I was right.

I really hope there are going to be more books from the Oyster Bay Guest House, and I for one can’t wait for more!
