Hello, today I’m on the blog tour for Jim Ody’s The Place That Never Existed. I was hooked on the blurb as it’s based in Devon, practically in the middle of no-where, and fairly local to me.
For Paul and Debbie it was meant to be the happiest time of their lives – a small village wedding in front of their family and friends, followed by a quiet honeymoon in Devon. Not everyone was happy to see them together.
Someone from the past was intent on ending their marriage before it had really started. Now, supposedly away from it all in a picturesque log cabin, Paul and Debbie find themselves in the midst of mysterious happenings. Unexplained disappearances with people turning up dead, and all of it centred on the site of an horrific murder.
A place the locals wish was a place that never existed.
Today I’m pleased to say I’m on the blog tour for Never Forget by Richard Davis. Usually I always host a book review on a tour, but this time I thought I would interview the author.
But first here is a little about Never Forget.
As a wave of seemingly random assassinations engulfs California, Marshall finds himself drawn into a situation spiralling out of control.
He soon discovers some of the webs’ most secure protocols have been compromised by a rogue team of former Chinese agents. When Marshall realises what they plan, the stakes are raised…
And that’s before the Secretary of State gets involved. Can Marshall unravel the deceit and tricks before it’s too late? Can he stop the carnage, or will he become part of it? One thing is for certain: either way his enemies will never forget.
Never Forget by Richard Davis is book two in the Saul Marshall series, book one is called False Prophet.
As you all know I’m a huge reader and love all kinds of books. As much as I love blogging I also love to find a few minutes to pick up a book and relax. The most recent book I’ve been reading is Dance With The Dead by James Nally. Suggested by one of my blogger friends Bridie by the Sea.
One of my most favourite genres is crime/thrillers. I always go back to them if I’ve been reading a light fluffy book or reading the same nursery rhyme book for the umpteenth time with baby girl.
Now we are creeping towards Autumn and Winter I find myself reading many more books. Well I used to before baby girl came along. I wonder if I will have the time this year? Probably not. But so long as I can squeeze a book every couple of weeks in I’ll be happy.
Anyway enough of my waffling. So what are my first thought’s on Dance With The Dead?
I love participating in book tours. It’s good fun popping around the tour reading everyone’s review on the book you have just read. This time around the book I have read for the tour is Random Acts of Unkindness by Jacqueline Ward.
A totally different book from the last book I read Beyond the Veil which was a fantasy vampire/werewolves type of book. Random Acts of Unkindness is a mystery crime novel and the first one in the DS Jan Pearce series.
Last year I read one of the best books for a long time and it was called The Ice Twins. I love stories about twins so this one was perfect. After I finished it I did think how on earth is the author S.K. Tremayne going to better her first book?
Well I don’t know how she did it but I’m afraid The Fire Child tops The Ice Twins. The Fire Child is a chilling psychological thriller set in Cornwall – My Home!
I am being a bit biased about Cornwall but it’s the most creepiest setting for this type of thriller and she has chosen well for a location. I loved reading through the book paying special attention to the place names. Every so often I would shout out- I’ve been there!
The Fire child gave me more of that personal touch than most books do due to it being set very close to home.
