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?
I haven’t read a good dragon story for ages so when I was offered the chance to give Jorie and the Magic Stones by A.H Richardson a go I thought great I’d give it a go!
It’s a children’s adventure book, but you all know I love to read kids books as well, about a girl called Jorie who goes to live with her aunt and discovers a mysterious land beneath the Tarn.
You are in for a great adventure ride!
Today we are very excited to be on the blog tour for Little Mouse Helps Out by Finnish author Riikka Jäntti. You also have the chance to win a copy at the bottom of this post.
Read on to hear about Little Mouse’s adventures and what we thought.
I always make time for some reading in my hectic life, even if it’s just half and hour here and there. As we are about to pack up and move house this is one of my last book reviews for a while. I do have a couple more children’s book reviews in the pipe line coming up in the next week though.
I’m glad I left Seas of Snow as one of my last reviews, it has left me with lasting thoughts that I find are rare when reading nowdays.
In 1950s England, six-year-old Gracie Scott lives with her Mam and next door to her best friend Billy; she has never known her Da. When her Uncle Joe moves in, his physical abuse of Gracie’s mother starts almost immediately. But when his attentions wander to Gracie, an even more sinister pattern of behavior begins.
As Gracie grows older she finds solace and liberation in books, poetry, and her enduring friendship with Billy, with whom she escapes into the poetic fantasy worlds they create. But will fantasy be enough to save Gracie? Just how far will Uncle Joe’s psychopathic behavior go?
The story weaves between these events and the visits Billy pays many years later to an old friend, confused and dying in a hospice. It is here that he is forced to revisit the events of the past.
Seas of Snow is a haunting and psychological domestic drama with an unexpected twist and considerable emotional punch.
You know when you put down a book after you have finished it and just cannot get it out of your head? Well The Dog Walker by Lesley Thomson is that book.
I’m pleased to be on the blog tour today for this chilling book. Plus you have the chance to win your very own copy further down the post.
January, 1987. In the depths of winter, only joggers and dog walkers brave the Thames towpath after dark. Until a young woman, Helen Honeysett, set off for a run from her riverside cottage and never came home. Her body has never been found.
Twenty-nine years later, Helen’s husband is still searching for answers. He’s asked Stella, the detective’s daughter, and Jack, a tube driver, to find out what happened all those years ago. But the five households on that desolate stretch of towpath refuse to give up their secrets. And as winter tightens its grip once more, Stella and Jack find themselves hunting for a killer whose trail has long gone cold…
You know sometimes you just need to read a light hearted book to bring a smile to your face. Well Laura Lake and the Hipster Weddings by Wendy Holden is just that. Witty, fun and down right full of entertainment!
I was lucky enough to be sent a beautiful hardback copy to read and review from Head of Zeus, plus you have the chance to win your very own copy as well. First though, here is a little bit about Laura Lake and the Hipster Weddings.
She’ll need a triple-barrelled name for the castle one. She’ll need a gallon of glitter for the woodland one. She’ll need a lobster-shaped hat for the Shoreditch one.
Laura Lake longs to be a journalist. Instead she’s an unpaid intern at a glossy magazine – sleeping in the fashion cupboard and living on canapés. But she’s just got her first big break: infiltrate three society weddings and write a juicy exposé.
Security will be tighter than a bodycon dress, but how hard can it be? Cue disappearing brides, demanding socialites – and a jealous office enemy who will do anything to bring her down…
