Blog Tour: False Lights by KJ Whittaker

This week I’m on the blog tour for False Lights by KJ Whittaker, it’s slightly off track to my normal reads but as it’s based in Cornwall, my home I was intrigued.

False Lights by KJ Whittaker

Book Description

Cornwall, 1817.

What if your worst mistake changed the course of history?

Napoleon has crushed the Duke of Wellington at the Battle of Waterloo, and his ex-wife Josephine presides over French-occupied England.

Cornwall erupts into open rebellion, and young heiress Hester escapes with Crow, Wellington’s former intelligence officer, a half-French aristocrat haunted by his part in the catastrophic defeat. Together, they become embroiled in a web of treachery and espionage as plans are laid to free Wellington from secret captivity in the Scilly Isles and lead an uprising against the French occupation. In a country rife with traitors, Hester and Crow know it is impossible to play such a game as this for long…

My Review

The setting reminds me of Poldark, adventurous, dark, brooding and mysterious, you are in for a treat! An historical novel at it’s best, of course this is an alternative to what could have happened if Napoleon had won the Battle of Waterloo which makes it even more of a great read.

With fantastic characters like the strong heroine Hester and the charismatic Crow the author doesn’t disappoint you. Expertly written, which just takes you back to the magic of that era you cannot ask for more in a novel of this genre.

False Lights by KJ Whittaker deserves a 5 out of 5 stars from me.

Available from Amazon.

  1. I went to Newquay a LONG time ago as a young adult for a lads long weekend. Quite fun with all the surfing that goes on there as well.

  2. I have visited many years ago as a kid, but I’m going to argue the case for our main holiday there next year (my other half likes mountainess regions)

  3. Yes, my family stayed in an apartment in Newquay last October, and my friend and I trekked the North coast when we were 17!

  4. Yes, this year for the first time. We went to the Eden centre and my son loved the Rainforest dome best.

    We went to the Minack Theatre. My son thought it would be boring but we watched a video on how it was made before we went in. He thought it was amazing. The sea there is a lovely colour (not like the North Sea near to where we live!).

    We went to Lizards Point and climbed the lighthouse. Saw seals in the sea through binoculars.

    We went to Lands End. It was a bit touristy but Samuel wanted to go in the Shaun the Sheep museum.

  5. I love Cornwall! I’ve been a couple of times and been to St Ives, Tintagel, Penzance and Falmouth amongst other places.

  6. I’ve never been to Cornwall. It’s a long way from my home. I would love to go there though, it looks so beautiful.

  7. I’m lucky enough to live in Cornwall with my family. The north coast is rugged with huge cliffs and beaches and the south have some gorgeous little fishing villages and beautiful bays.Cornwall is a great place to explore lots of hidden little gems as you are never far from the sea wherever you go.

  8. never been lucky enough to get there, we actually booked to go once and my husband wrecked his ankle and we did not go.

  9. We go to cornwall every year for a holiday beautiful place we all ways stay in perranporth
    favourite place to go is when the newlyn fish festival is on
