I'm Baaaaack!

I'm not sure if you've noticed, but I haven't been around much lately. I haven't had a laptop to use for a while so I've found it a struggle to blog properly from my phone. Now, thanks to our Bella having a litter of lovely little puppies, we've been able to get a nice shiny (well, purple!) new laptop. So, now I have no excuses for not keeping up with my blogging and only being able to post certain types of blog tour materials. Yay!!

I've already booked in a couple of tours in the coming months and I'm excited to get my head down and get doing this properly again. I love blogging so much and I feel a bit like a fraud when I'm being sent all these amazing books and can only do a limited amount of sharing for them.

Anyhoo, as you may have noticed, I said that our Bella has had pups! She and our oldest boy, Magic, welcomed a litter of 5 teeny, tiny Pomeranian puppies in early February. There were 2 girls and 3 boys and they are so cute! We are keeping …

Blog Tour Stop with Review - The Silent Children by Carol Wyer

Amazon Links


What They Say:
The boy studied the bruise turning yellow at the base of his neck. With quick fingers his mother tightened his tie, and pulled his collar high above it. Her eyes alone said, We will not speak of this...

Years later, a man is found shot dead in a local park. On his phone is a draft text: I can’t keep this secret any longer. The recipient is unnamed.

Detective Robyn Carter knows this secret is the key to the case, but his friends and family don’t offer any clues, and all her team have to go on is a size-ten footprint. 

Then a nurse is found in a pool of blood at the bottom of her staircase, and a seemingly insignificant detail in her friend’s statement makes Robyn wonder: are the two bodies connected, and has the killer only just begun?

When another body confirms Robyn’s worst fears, she realises she’s in a race against time to stop the killer before they strike again. But just as she thinks she’s closing in, …

Blog Tour Stop - It Had To Be You by Keris Stainton

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for It Had To Be You by Keris Stainton!!

Twenty-five-year-old Bea is a hopeless romantic with a hopeless love life – until now. New beau Dan ticks all the boxes: he’s good-looking, kind and thoughtful. The complete opposite of Bea’s ex, who once threw her out in the middle of the night when she was ill so she didn’t disrupt his sleep.

So when her friends point out that she and Dan don’t have fireworks, Bea ignores them. Dan is the whole package. And yet Bea can’t stop comparing him to her best friend Henry…Because Dan doesn’t get Bea’s jokes. Or like books. Or make her laugh until she can’t breathe. Or become speechless when Bea puts on her favourite black dress for a night out… 

As time goes on, Bea can’t shift the feeling that something just isn’t right. On paper Dan is the perfect man. But in reality… Will Bea be brave enough to ask for more from life – and get the fireworks she deserves?

A laug…
