Blog Tour: My Beautiful Disaster – The Road to Publication (@joannahughes77; @emmamitchellfpr)

Today I am delighted to be part of the blog tour for My Beautiful Disaster. I’ll be bringing you a Q&A with author J.D. Hughes in a moment on her road to publication but first things first – here is what the book is all about.

MBD coverThe Official Book Blurb

Daniel Dukes, millionaire extraordinaire has it all. A thriving business, good looks, power, money and women who’ll drop their drawers at the click of his skilled fingers. Just how he likes it. Everything changes one day when a stipulation in his deceased Uncle’s will, scuppers his visionary plans. The only way to get what’s rightfully his, is to marry. Who? It doesn’t matter, because the enigmatic bachelor will stop at nothing and play dirty to get what is his.

Sophia Lewis had nothing until she started working directly for Daniel at Dukes Industries. Having grown up in care, she’s tough, has an answer for everything and knows how to handle all varieties of men. For two years, Sophia has attended to her overbearing boss’ every whim. Gone above and beyond the call of duty.

When an indecent proposal presents itself, boundaries are pushed and limits are tested. Can Daniel and Sophia remain professional to fool the dead Uncle’s Lawyers? As lines become blurred and tempers become frayed, can two strong willed souls be the key to unlock each other’s hidden secrets? Or will the high price of the deal come at a devastating cost to them both?

*Warning* Mature themes and one hell of a cliff hanger!

Recap Review: #TwoOClockBoy by Mark Hill (@markhillwriter)

Happy paperback birthday to Mark Hill whose stonkingly brilliant thriller, Two O’Clock Boy is being let out in the wild today. I first read and reviewed this book last year, and the protagonist, Ray Drake, is one of my self confessed #BookLove crushes. So with a cracking new cover to drool over (not literally as that’s a waste of a good book) now seemed like a good time to revisit my review.

#BlogTour Review: Quieter Than Killing By Sarah Hilary (@sarah_hilary; @headlinepg)

I’m absolutely delighted to be kicking off the blog tour for Sarah Hillary’s brand new DI Marnie Rome thriller, Quieter Than Killing. I have an extract from the opening scenes to share with you today and keep reading if you want to know my thoughts on the book. First though, here’s what the book is all about.

qtkThe Official Book Blurb

It’s winter, the nights are dark and freezing, and a series of seemingly random assaults is pulling DI Marnie Rome and DS Noah Jake out onto streets of London. When Marnie’s family home is ransacked, there are signs that the burglary can have only been committed by someone who knows her. Then a child goes missing, yet no-one has reported it. Suddenly, events seem connected, and it’s personal.

Someone out there is playing games. It is time for both Marnie and Noah to face the truth about the creeping, chilling reaches of a troubled upbringing. Keeping quiet can be a means of survival, but the effects can be as terrible as killing. Continue reading “#BlogTour Review: Quieter Than Killing By Sarah Hilary (@sarah_hilary; @headlinepg)”

Guest Post: Review – ‘All I Want For Christmas’ by Jenny Hale (@jhaleauthor; @bookouture)

Hi All. Continuing the Christmas theme, it’s time for another guest post by Mandie (@mgriffiths163) who has read and reviewed ‘All I Want For Christmas‘ by Jenny Hale.

31691157The Official Book Blurb

Christmas comes once a year . . . But true love comes once in a lifetime.

Snowflakes are falling, there’s carol singing on every corner, and Leah Evans is preparing for a family Christmas at her grandmother’s majestic plantation house in Virginia. It won’t be the same now that her beloved Nan is gone, but when Leah discovers she has inherited the mansion, she knows she can give her daughter Sadie the childhood of her dreams.

But there’s a catch. Leah must split the house with a man called David Forester. Leah hasn’t heard that name in a long time. Not since they were kids, when Davey was always there to catch her.

Orenda Week: Review – ‘The Exiled’ by Kati Hiekkapelto (@HiekkapeltoKati; @OrendaBooks)

Next up on my Orenda Books feature week is another brand new review, this time for a book which dares to explore the inherent prejudices within society, and addresses a long buried miscarriage of justice which is very personal to its protagonist, Anna Fekete.


When Anna Fekete returns to the town where she was born to spend the summer with her family she has plans for nothing more than a bit of relaxation; some gentle exercise, to bit of swimming in the local river and to catch up with old friends. When her handbag is stolen while on a night out, her passport and credit card taken along with it, Anna’s dreams of a peaceful holiday are shattered. The police soon recover her bag but with one small and one rather large issue. Her passport and credit card are long gone but, more disturbingly, the man suspected of the theft is dead, his body found along the riverbank.
