Book Tour: Guest Post by Clare Carson

I am very pleased to host a guest post by the lovely Clare Carson. Author of 2015’s Orkney Twilight and her latest novel The Salt Marsh.

But first, here is a little about her new book The Salt Marsh.

Book Description:

It is a year since Sam’s father died, but she cannot lay his ghost to rest. Jim was an undercover agent living a double life, and Sam has quit university to find out the truth about his work. Her journey will take her from the nightclubs of 80s Soho to the salt marshes and shingle spits of Norfolk and Kent.

Here, in a bleak windswept landscape dotted with smugglers’ huts and buried bones, Jim’s secret past calls to her like never before. Now Sam must decide. Will she walk away and pick up her own life? Or become an undercover operative herself and continue her father’s work in the shadows…

A haunting thriller set in the windswept marshes of Kent and Norfolk, from the author of Orkney Twilight

Book Review: The Adventures of Shifting Jack by Denise Erguler

This is the first children’s novel by Denise Erguler. I love to help out new authors on my blog and after reading the blurb for The Adventures of Shifting Jack I knew I wanted to help Denise get her book ‘out there’.

Unfortunately when I was writing this review there were no images for me to show you. So you have ended up with just a generic image of books I’m afraid. But I have to say it is a pretty photo!

The author Denise Erguler moved to North Cyprus 10 years ago from London. She lives with her husband, Olkan, and two children, Ayla age 7 and Adil, age 10 and The Adventures of Shifting Jack is her first children’s book.

Book Review: The Fire Child by S.K. Tremayne

Last year I read one of the best books for a long time and it was called The Ice Twins. I love stories about twins so this one was perfect. After I finished it I did think how on earth is the author S.K. Tremayne going to better her first book? 

Well I don’t know how she did it but I’m afraid The Fire Child tops The Ice Twins. The Fire Child is a chilling psychological thriller set in Cornwall – My Home! 

I am being a bit biased about Cornwall but it’s the most creepiest setting for this type of thriller and she has chosen well for a location. I loved reading through the book paying special attention to the place names. Every so often I would shout out- I’ve been there!

The Fire child gave me more of that personal touch than most books do due to it being set very close to home.

Book Review: Following Evan by Elida May

This week’s Book Review Monday Is a special one as I’m a part of a blog book tour.

I’m very excited to be a part of the Following Evan by Elida May blog book tour. The week before last on the 16th I was lucky enough to be a part of the release day blitz for Following Evan.

The story intrigued me from the moment I read the information I was given about this novel. I always like to set myself little questions from what I gather from the blurb and look forward to finding out the questions while I’m reading along.The questions I gave myself for Following Evan were: What made Laura one day decide that she has finished grieving? Who is this mysterious stranger in New York? What does a woman in a dress from a painting have to do with this book?I’m eager to find out, are you?

Following Evan is the debut novel from Elida May – Full of Sadness, Mystery and Romance.

Book Description

Three years on from the sudden death of her husband Matt and a subsequent miscarriage, interior designer Laura is still lost in grief, hiding out in the smart London townhouse that was going to be her family home. On the encouragement of her best friend Carla, she signs up to a dating website and receives a message from a mysterious stranger, imploring her to visit him in New York because he has seen her face in his dreams. 

Meanwhile, Laura visits an art gallery and is captivated by a painting of a beautiful woman in a flowing dress. It seems to be speaking directly to her, beckoning her to take a leap of faith. 

These seemingly disparate events lead Laura on an epic journey to the bustling streets of the Big Apple and the desert landscape of Wyoming, where the clues to her future happiness are waiting to be discovered…
