Book Review: The Place That Never Existed by Jim Ody

Hello, today I’m on the blog tour for Jim Ody’s The Place That Never Existed. I was hooked on the blurb as it’s based in Devon, practically in the middle of no-where, and fairly local to me.

Book Review: The Place That Never Existed by Jim Ody

Book Description

For Paul and Debbie it was meant to be the happiest time of their lives – a small village wedding in front of their family and friends, followed by a quiet honeymoon in Devon. Not everyone was happy to see them together.

Someone from the past was intent on ending their marriage before it had really started. Now, supposedly away from it all in a picturesque log cabin, Paul and Debbie find themselves in the midst of mysterious happenings. Unexplained disappearances with people turning up dead, and all of it centred on the site of an horrific murder.

A place the locals wish was a place that never existed.

Book Review: Dance With The Dead by James Nally

As you all know I’m a huge reader and love all kinds of books. As much as I love blogging I also love to find a few minutes to pick up a book and relax. The most recent book I’ve been reading is Dance With The Dead by James Nally. Suggested by one of my blogger friends Bridie by the Sea.

Dance With The Dead book cover by James Nally
One of my most favourite genres is crime/thrillers. I always go back to them if I’ve been reading a light fluffy book or reading the same nursery rhyme book for the umpteenth time with baby girl.

Now we are creeping towards Autumn and Winter I find myself reading many more books. Well I used to before baby girl came along.  I wonder if I will have the time this year? Probably not. But so long as I can squeeze a book every couple of weeks in I’ll be happy.

Anyway enough of my waffling. So what are my first thought’s on Dance With The Dead?

Book Review: Random Acts of Unkindness by Jacqueline Ward

I love participating in book tours. It’s good fun popping around the tour reading everyone’s review on the book you have just read. This time around the book I have read for the tour is Random Acts of Unkindness by Jacqueline Ward.

A totally different book from the last book I read Beyond the Veil which was a fantasy vampire/werewolves type of book. Random Acts of Unkindness is a mystery crime novel and the first one in the DS Jan Pearce series.
