The Dream Pony Review and Giveaway 

This week I have been reading The Dream Pony by Sharon Picciolo to baby girl. I used to love reading horse and pony stories when I was younger, one of my favourite magazines as a kid was all about ponies. It’s funny as I grew out of it after a few years and now I don’t have anything to do with horses, but I would love baby girl to experience the same love I once had for them.

I’m very pleased to help kick off the One To Watch blog tour today by the lovely Rachel Amphlett, not only does she have a great name (Rachel!) but she is the amazing author behind the Detective Kay Hunter series.

Read on for a fantastic extract from the new Kay Hunter novel.

Sophie Whittaker shared a terrifying secret. Hours later, she was dead.

Detective Kay Hunter and her colleagues are shocked by the vicious murder of a teenage girl at a private party in the Kentish countryside.

One to Watch is a gripping murder mystery thriller, and the third in the Detective Kay Hunter series:
