Fault Lines by Doug Johnstone @doug_johnstone @Orendabooks #randomthingstours

Today it is my great pleasure to be taking part in the blog tour for Fault Lines, the brand new thriller from Doug Johnstone set in an altered version of the Edinburgh landscape which you might not quite recognise. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the book in just a moment, as soon as we’ve seen what it’s all about.

FLAbout the Book

Brilliantly constructed speculative crime fiction
A classic whodunit
Dark psychological suspense

Doug Johnstone returns with his most explosive and original thriller yet…

A little lie … a seismic secret … and the cracks are beginning to show…

In a reimagined contemporary Edinburgh, where a tectonic fault has opened up to produce a new volcano in the Firth of Forth, and where tremors are an everyday occurrence, volcanologist Surtsey makes a shocking discovery. 

On a clandestine trip to new volcanic island The Inch, to meet Tom, her lover and her boss, she finds his lifeless body, and makes the fatal decision to keep their affair, and her discovery, a secret. Desperate to know how he died, but also terrified she’ll be exposed, Surtsey’s life quickly spirals into a nightmare when someone makes contact – someone who claims to know what she’s done…

The Louisiana Republic by Maxim Jakubowski @CaffeineNights #RandomThingsTours

Today I am delighted to be joining the blog tour for Maxim Jakubowski’s The Louisiana Republic. Definitely a departure for me and my little blog but I have a guest post from the author which I know you’ll all find fascinating. My thanks to Anne Cater of Random Things Tours for inviting me to join in the blog tour. Let’s see what the book is all about.

Louisiana Republic CoverAbout the Book

New York, and the world, have been transformed by an unexplained global catastrophe now known as ‘the Dark.

Once a modest researcher, has now become an involuntary detective. He is recruited by her elder sister to find the missing daughter of a local gangster in a city in chaos where anarchy and violence are just a step away. He soon discovers the case is anything but straightforward and compellingly close to home.

Compromising photographs and the ambiguous assistance of a young woman with ties to the criminal gangs lead him to New Orleans, which has seceded from the rest of America in the wake of the Dark. A perilous journey down the Mississippi river, murderous hit women and sidekicks, and the magic and dangerous glamour of the French Quarter become a perilous road to nowhere and to madness in his quest for the amoral daughter, his own lost love and his sanity. Will he find the missing women or lose himself?

Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe by Debbie Johnson @debbiemjohnson @HarperImpulse @mgriffiths163

Today I hand over to Mandie who has a review of Debbie Johnson’s Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe. 

satcfcAbout the Book

The brand new book from bestselling author Debbie Johnson will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you raid the pantry in the middle of the night…

The Comfort Food Cafe is perched on a windswept clifftop at what feels like the edge of the world, serving up the most delicious cream teas; beautifully baked breads, and carefully crafted cupcakes. For tourists and locals alike, the ramshackle cafe overlooking the beach is a beacon of laughter, companionship, and security – a place like no other; a place that offers friendship as a daily special, and where a hearty welcome is always on the menu.

For widowed mum-of-two Laura Walker, the decision to uproot her teenaged children and make the trek from Manchester to Dorset for the summer isn’t one she takes lightly, and it’s certainly not winning her any awards from her kids, Nate and Lizzie. Even her own parents think she’s gone mad.

Her new job at the cafe, and the hilarious people she meets there, give Laura the chance she needs to make new friends; to learn to be herself again, and – just possibly – to learn to love again as well.

For her, the Comfort Food Cafe doesn’t just serve food – it serves a second chance to live her life to the full…

Cov Rev

Absolutely delighted to be able to take part in the cover reveal for the latest psychological thriller from Louise Jensen, The Date. I loved Louise’s first books and I am thrilled to hear that another is imminent as it sounds like a cracker.

A true advocate of delayed gratification (when it comes to books), I’m going to make you wait a moment longer to see the cover and let you take a sneak peek at what it’s all about. Continue reading “#Cover Reveal: #TheDate Louise Jensen & Bookouture. @Fab_fiction @Bookouture”

#BlogTour: End Game by Matt Johnson @Matt_Johnson_UK @OrendaBooks

Today it is my absolute pleasure to be taking part in the blog tour for End Game by Matt Johnson, the third and final 😦 thriller in the Robert Finlay series. My thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me to join the tour and to publisher, Orenda Books for providing an advance copy of the book for review. It is a bitter sweet post as I love this series and am sad to see it end, but I’ll share my thoughts on the book with you just as soon as we’ve taken a look at what it’s all about.

EGAbout the Book

Robert Finlay seems to have finally left his SAS past behind him and is settled into his new career as a detective. But when the girlfriend of his former SAS colleague and close friend Kevin Jones is murdered, it’s clear that Finlay’s troubles are far from over. Jones is arrested for the killing, but soon escapes from jail, and Finlay is held responsible for the breakout.

Suspended from duty and sure he’s being framed too, our hero teams up with MI5 agent Toni Fellowes to find out who’s behind the conspiracy. Their quest soon reveals a plot that goes to the very heart of the UK’s security services. 

End Game, the final part in the critically acclaimed Robert Finlay trilogy, sees our hero in an intricately plotted and terrifyingly fast-paced race to uncover the truth and escape those who’d sooner have him dead than be exposed.
