The Butlins Girls is not my normal type of reading, well I have slightly moved away from the crime/thriller genre at the moment as my last book was Come Sundown by Nora Roberts! I suppose I like the name The Butlins Girls because of Butlins, the family holiday park, so wanted to see if the book is anything like the park. A little strange of me I know!
The author Elaine Everest’s other book is The Woolworths Girls, now I was a Woolworths Girl back in the early 2000’s before they went into administration. I think that book will be one of my next reads.
This week we have been reading all about The Merciless Lion and the Cunning Hare by Corrine Riviere. A great bedtime story for slightly older kids than baby girl. I think at this age (16 months) she just loves the sound of my voice, and won’t understand what this story is about.
Nonetheless we love to have a look through the book together.
I’m excited to be on another blog tour this week, yesterday was The Silence by Katharine Johnson, today is Come Sundown by one of my old favourite authors Nora Roberts.
Nora Roberts is a huge bestselling author of more than 200 novels and her latest one Come Sundown is another cracker! Published last week in hardback and available from Amazon in various formats.
So now onto the best parts! The blurb… and of course my review.
What is Come Sundown all about?
What did I think of it?
Today I’m on the blog tour for Katharine Johnson’s fantastic thriller The Silence.
I have something a little different today instead of a review. It’s a little guest post from Katharine herself about her favourite things.
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.
A tangled web of dark secrets is exposed as twisted motives point to a history of greed and corruption within the tight-knit community.
Confronted by a growing number of suspects and her own enemies who are waging a vendetta against her, Kay makes a shocking discovery that will make her question her trust in everyone she knows.
One to Watch is a gripping murder mystery thriller, and the third in the Detective Kay Hunter series:
1. SCARED TO DEATH
2. WILL TO LIVE
3. ONE TO WATCH
4. HELL TO PAY (out 2017)
