The Craftsman by Sharon Bolton

The Craftsman is a police drama with a hint of the occult.  I read this book for the blog tour and thoroughly enjoyed it.  It’s unlike anything I’ve read before.  The setting is chilling and story moves quickly.  It keeps you guessing until the end.

Snowflakes at Lavender Bay by  Sarah Bennett

y648

A perfect wintry read.  The third book in the Lavender Bay series but can be read as a stand alone easily.  This one is great for curling up inside your quilt with on a cold, wintery day.  A light reading, romance novel that will give you a warm hug.

The Woods Murder by Roy Lewis

A great read for fans of good old-fashioned ‘Who dun it?’ books.  No frills or complicated back stories – just a great police procedural where everyone is a suspect until the very end.

Love You Gone by Rona Halsall

cover149873-medium

A brilliant, fast paced, split narrative thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last moment.  Lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing.

Man In Red by Tom Story

MIR page 1

A delightful, beautifully illustrated children’s book that is perfect for sharing on Christmas Eve.  A modern twist on a classic Christmas story that will leave children excited with anticipation for the big day.


It’s a Wonderful Night

This is a beautifully told novel that’s so much more than just a romance story.  It confronts issues such as grief, suicide, depression as well as the more uplifting childhood memories, Christmas and love.  I defy you not to fall in love with this one.

The Liar’s Wife by Samantha Hayes

cover151568-medium

An excellent and thrilling story of Ella who wakes up from coma to be told her husband has been visiting, but Ella doesn’t have a husband. An intense story that becomes more compulsive reading as it goes on with a brilliant twist at the end.

The Diary by Vikki Patis

the diary

A psychological thriller with a bit of a slower pace that allows you to really digest the characters and their actions.  It’s a story of sisterly love, grief, frienship and forgiveness.
