#BookLove: Lorraine Rugman @ReviewCafe

Book Love (1)

Today it is my absolute pleasure to welcome the fabulously lovely Lorraine from The Book Review Cafe to the blog to share her #bookloves. I love Lorraine’s blog and she is a totally wonderful lady and supportive book blogger too. Here is a little more about the lady herself.

About Lorraine

LR

My name is Lorraine and I love books and coffee so there was only one thing to call my blog. I love reading and always have a book or my kindle in my hand, and more often than not a cup of good coffee. I especially enjoy reading Crime and psychological thrillers and these are the books I mostly review on my blog.

I started my blog in late August 2015 when I was off work after suffering an injury at work, I was bored one day and decided to start up a book blog. I never really thought about where my blog would lead, and never in a million years did I think any one would end up reading it, let alone follow me! or that I would be in contact with some of my favourite authors

I work full time so my life is pretty hectic, but I always find time to read and review books, although I do get frustrated that I am unable to read as much as I would like. My dream job would be reading and reviewing books from home with a cup of coffee in my hand (not sure if such a job exists, but I did say dream job!)

You can follow Lorraine on Twitter, Facebook and on her brilliant blog The Book Review Cafe.

Review: Cragside by L.J. Ross @LJRoss_author

A massive happy publication day to author LJ Ross whose new DCI Ryan mystery, Cragside, makes its way into the world today. Now I won’t lie. I was a little bit excited about the publication of this book, and not only because I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and couldn’t wait to see what was happening to the team after the very tense ending of High Force. But more on that later. First off, here is what this book is all about.

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.

#BlogTour Review: Alice in Theatreland by Julia Roberts @JuliaRobertsTV

It’s my great pleasure today to be a part of the blog tour for Alice In Theatreland, the new novel from Julia Roberts. My thanks to Julia for inviting me to be a part of this tour. I have a great guest post from Julia introducing the stars of the show, and I’ll be sharing it along with my thoughts on the book with you in a moment, but first up, here is what the book is all about.

AITThe Official Book Blurb

It’s summer 1976; London is languishing in the sultry heat. Beautiful and talented nineteen-year-old, Alice Abbott, arrives in the city with high hopes of one day seeing her name up in lights but first she must impress Richard, the producer of a new West End show, Theatreland.

Alice is befriended at the audition by the more experienced Gina, who, although burdened by her own dark secrets, is determined to protect the newcomer from the sleaze behind the glamour. She also attracts attention from the male lead in the show, Peter, a former pop star struggling to escape his playboy reputation.

Alice’s star seems to be rising as fast as the temperature until she naively accepts an impromptu dinner invitation from Richard. What happened that night? And how far will Richard go to protect his guilty secret?
