#BlogTour Review: Exquisite by Sarah Stovell

Today Jen Med’s is one of the two stops on the blog tour for Exquisite, the new psychological thriller from Sarah Stovell and Orenda Books. I’ll be sharing my review with you in just a moment, but for now, here is what the book is all about.

ExThe Official Book Blurb

Bo Luxton has it all – a loving family, a beautiful home in the Lake District, and a clutch of bestselling books to her name.

Enter Alice Dark, an aspiring writer who is drifting through life, with a series of dead-end jobs and a freeloading boyfriend.

When they meet at a writers’ retreat, the chemistry is instant, and a sinister relationship develops … Or does it?

Breathlessly pacey, taut and terrifying, Exquisite is a startlingly original and unbalancing psychological thriller that will keep you guessing until the very last page.

Reblog #Review: ‘Evil Games’ by Angela Marsons (@WriteAngie)

Today I continue my countdown to the release of Angela Marsons’ Dead Souls with a look back to book 2 in the Kim Stone series. In February I had the absolute pleasure of being part of the blog tour for the paperback release of Evil Games. It was the premiere of a revamped and extended review and I think I may have been a bit gushing with the #BookLove. But you know what? I stand by my gushiness as I absolutely loved this book.

The Official Book Blurb

The greater the Evil, the more deadly the game…
When a rapist is found mutilated in a brutal attack, Detective Kim Stone and her team are called in to bring a swift resolution. But, as more vengeful killings come to light, it soon becomes clear that there is someone far more sinister at work.

With the investigation quickly gathering momentum, Kim finds herself exposed to great danger and in the sights of a lethal individual undertaking their own twisted experiment.

Up against a sociopath who seems to know her every weakness, for Detective Stone, each move she makes could be deadly. As the body count starts to mount, Kim will have to dig deeper than ever before to stop the killing. And this time – it’s personal.

Orenda week: Review – ‘Epiphany Jones’ by Michael Grothaus (@michaelgrothaus; @OrendaBooks)

It’s the final day of my Orenda feature and this time it’s a brand new review for a book initially published back in March. Like many other books, this came onto my radar at CrimeFest in Bristol but it has sat on my tbr list for far too long. So I dusted it off and dove right in and boy am I glad I did.

Only he hasn’t been so good at taking his pills of late and has been having some really tortured dreams of a young woman running in fear of her life.
