Don’t you just love a great detective story?

Today I’m very pleased to be on the last day of the blog tour for City of Drowned Souls by Chris Lloyd. City of Drowned Souls is book #3 in the crime thriller Elisenda Domenech Series. The series revolves around Elisenda, a detective who has had a lot of recent troubles and heartache, who is constantly battling work colleagues and dealing with murder investigations.

Book Description

When a child disappears, the clock starts ticking
Detective Elisenda Domènech has had a tough few years. The loss of her daughter and a team member; the constant battles against colleagues and judges; the harrowing murder investigations… But it’s about to get much worse.

When the son of a controversial local politician goes missing at election time, Elisenda is put on the case. They simply must solve it. Only the team also have to deal with a spate of horrifically violent break-ins. People are being brutalised in their own homes and the public demands answers.

Could there be a connection? Why is nobody giving a straight answer? And where is Elisenda’s key informant, apparently vanished off the face of the earth? With the body count threatening to increase and her place in the force on the line, the waters are rising…

Be careful not to drown.

When we become a parent, we want to spend as much time with our children as possible. We want their younger years to be filled with joy, happiness and fun, and as a result of this we try our best to keep them entertained and content through a range of different activities. As they get older, their needs will change which will mean we will not necessarily have to take as much time to think about what we should do with them, and where we should take them for fun days out. When a child is young, they can be content by simply playing with their toys, reading books, colouring or painting. But, as their age progresses they will be happy in their room, playing games, using the internet or catching up with school work.

We have teamed up Britmums and Vicks to share with you some of our tips on surviving the Winter kids colds season.  This time of year, kids pick up every cold germ going. Baby girl had her first cold at 3 weeks old about this time last year. As new parents we were very scared at night-time. Don’t you think all kids seem to get worse at night?

The past few weeks she has had various sniffles, coughs and a runny nose. All the babies at our baby sensory class seem to have colds as well. There is no escaping!

Over to you Jo…

 

When you’re pregnant you spend your time imagining what things will be like as a new mum. You spend your days reading through the growth of your developing baby. Making decisions on the birth, feeding, the nursery, names. It’s all very exciting. You prepare and you get ready for your life to change.

I had everything ready.
The nursery was done, names were chosen, birth plan completed. I’m ready! Except I really wasn’t and I found out very quickly.

Baby girl has taken a great interest in books lately. I know some of the ones we read and review are a little too old for her, but she loves to turn the pages herself and look at the pictures. Our latest read and review is the Woodland Hedgehugs Activity Book which was kindly sent to us from Maverick arts publishing and Boolino. Every now and again Boolino send us fantastic books to read through and review. Our last review for them was Robin’s Winter Song.
