Rewind, recap: weekly update w/e 09/07/17


Got you all wondering now haven’t I? Well this picture sums up the height of excitement for my weekend. Yes… you guessed it. I bought a new toaster.

So with domesticity (or as close as I get to it) out of the way, back to the weeks readage. I managed three books this week. I’ve not been really on it reading wise.

CThe Official Book Blurb

Are you afraid of the dark..?

After his climactic battle with notorious serial killer The Hacker, DCI Ryan is spending the summer with his fiancée within the grounds of Cragside, a spectacular Bavarian-style mansion surrounded by acres of woodland. When they are invited to attend the staff summer party – a Victorian murder mystery evening – it’s all a joke until the lights go out and an elderly man is found dead. It looks like an unfortunate accident but, as the dead man’s life begins to unfold, Ryan and his team of detectives realise that all is not as it appears.

When a second body is found, terror grips the close-knit community and Ryan must uncover the killer who walks among them, before they strike again…

Murder and mystery are peppered with romance and humour in this fast-paced crime whodunit set amidst the spectacular Northumbrian landscape.
