Nature shots seem to be my thing right now. Apparently. Spotted on one of my walkies over the weekend. Probably not much of a surprise as I was walking around a Deer Park at the time but there you go.

Now walking is my way of clearing the brain. It is also my last attempt to get fit and push the effort with the old diet. The last bit’s not going so well but there you go. It’s the thought that counts. Continue reading “Rewind, recap – weekly roundup w/e 23/04/17”

#BlogTour Review: Lie To Me by Jess Ryder (@jessryderauthor; @Bookouture)

It is my great pleasure to be one of today’s stops on the blog tour for Lie to Me, the new thriller from Jess Ryder and Bookouture. I’ll be sharing my review with you in a moment, but for now, here is what the book is all about.

LTMThe Official Book Blurb

How can you tell the truth… if all you’ve ever known is a lie?

Three minutes. That’s all it takes for Meredith’s entire world to fall apart when she watches the videotape of her four-year-old self with Becca, the mother who abandoned her.

Meredith can’t believe what her eyes have seen. Yet what if her memory has locked away the painful reality of her childhood? Can there be any truth in the strange and dangerous story her mother forced her to tell on camera?

#BlogTour: Ice Cold Alice by C.P.Wilson (@bellshillwilson; @Bloodhoundbook)

It’s my pleasure to be one of today’s stops on the blog tour for the new thriller, Ice Cold Alice by C.P. Wilson. I have a guest post from the author to share in a moment, plus a short review of the (fabulous) book, but first of all here is what the book is about.

Alice final .jpgThe Official Book Blurb

They thought that they had all the power, until she took it from them.

A killer hunts abusive spouses, blogging about their sins post-kill. Soon the murders and the brazen journaling draws the attention of Police Scotland’s CID.

This killer works with surgical preparation, precision and skill, using a unique weapon of her own and never leaves a trace of evidence behind.

Edinburgh’s DI Kathy McGuire, nearing the end of her career, begins the hunt for the murderer as a media frenzy erupts. But McGuire might have met her match…

What has led this killer to take the law into her own hands?

Is the woman accountable really a cold-hearted killer or a desperate vigilante?
