Book Review: Method 15/33 by Shannon Kirk

When I first saw the cover of this book I thought the title was a little strange. What does Method 15/33 mean? With a picture of a pair of hands tied up with rope does not give much away to the reader. I was eager to find out what it’s all about. Book Description:   Imagine a helpless, pregnant 16-year-old…

I love this view so much that I had to add a black and white photo to the post as well to show you the stunning scenery. The colour photo shows the sea in the background which is harder to make out in the black and white photo.  You wouldn’t believe it but I was standing in the entrance of…

Granola, Stretch Cream and a Picture….

As all compers know, there can be times when you go through a very quiet spell with no wins at all. This has happened to me through most of July. August started off better though with a couple of Twitter wins, a facebook win and a WEM (winning email – these are very rare and when you receive one you…

We have had a few great days of sunshine here and there, but when it has rained, well it has almost been like the heavens opened and flooded us all.  This mixture of warm and wet weather conditions has been perfect for…

Book Review: Terminal Life by Richard Torregrossa

When i first spotted this book, I really liked the look of the cover and with the little description of a suited hero novel. This made me think that the hero of the story is very smart, business- like and immaculately dressed. A different type of hero to the normal costume dressed heroes that are ten a penny nowadays.    …

Book Review: The Confession of Thomas Hawkins by Antonia Hodgson

My first thoughts on this book was that it looked like a really interesting read. I haven’t read that many historical crime fiction, but was totally absorbed and intrigued by the cover of this one.  Book Description Spring, 1728. A young, well-dressed man is dragged through the streets of London to the gallows at Tyburn. The crowds jeer and curse…
