Rocco and the price of lies by Adrian Magson

Rocco and the price of lies by Adrian Magson - Blog tour.

Murder by suicide? Three senior government officials – a judge, a politician, and an ex-police chief – are all dead by their own hands. Inspector Lucas Rocco finds himself once more working for the Interior Ministry: undertaking an investigation meant to avoid a government scandal and ignoring unpalatable truths. He’s soon convinced that a common denominator must be at play… Rocco uncovers top-level fraud, theft and deception. And when he narrowly survives an attempt on his life, he realises that he has nothing to lose by bringing the truth out into the open – whatever the risks.

The killing lessons by Saul Black.

The killing lessons by Saul Black.

When the two strangers turn up at Rowena Cooper's isolated Colorado farmhouse, she knows instantly that it's the end of everything. For the two haunted and driven men, on the other hand, it's just another stop on a long and bloody journey. And they still have many miles to go, and victims to sacrifice, before their work is done.

For San Francisco homicide detective Valerie Hart, their trail of victims--women abducted, tortured and left with a seemingly random series of objects inside them--has brought her from obsession to the edge of physical and psychological destruction. And she's losing hope of making a breakthrough before that happens.

But the murders at the Cooper farmhouse didn't quite go according to plan. There was a survivor, Rowena's ten-year-old daughter Nell, who now holds the key to the killings. Injured, half-frozen, terrified, Nell has only one place to go. And that place could be even more dangerous than what she…

Tales of Ramion - Blog Tour

Tales of Ramion by - Blog Tour. 


Ramion is a magical place where anything can happen and frequently does. In this collection of enchanting fantasy stories, three young boys travel the realm of Ramion on incredible adventures with their cat Snuggle, escaping from their insidious foes, the witch Griselda who longs to eat them and the Princess of the Night, a keen collector of real human sculptures. Four uniquely wacky stories, Tales of Ramion are great reads for children and are particularly well loved by young boys thanks to the author’s cheeky storytelling and mischievous humour. Frank Hinks is a successful Chancery QC. From childhood, he dreamt of being both barrister and writer, but as an artist he’s not self-taught but wife-taught, developing his unique style under the uncompromising gaze of his wife, Susan Haire, a professional artist. The series was inspired by his eldest son, Julius who would give him the first line of a story at bedtime and leave him to carry on withou…

Where i have i been??

Ok...... so I know I have been MIA for a fair while but I feel the time is right for me to return and with that, I would like to explain where I have been??

So at the start of this year, I had been poorly for quite a while and the DR finally diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia, it has taken a lot to come to terms with the fact that the pain I am in will never go away and is something I have to just learn to live with, well manage with.

There has been ups and downs and constant trips to the DRS and many different medications to try, some has been helpful some not so much anyway things finally started to level out then i sadly lost my Dad which has been very hard actually accept but I do finally feel this is the right time to make a return to something I really enjoy doing and hope that this will help me even more.

I have some film reviews and book reviews in the pipeline so there will be some new content coming your way as well.

Thank you for reading and thank you all for bearing with me.


Grace after Henry by Eithne Shortall - Blog tour.

Grace after Henry by Eithne Shortall.




Grace sees her boyfriend Henry everywhere. In the supermarket, on the street, at the graveyard.

Only Henry is dead. He died two months earlier, leaving a huge hole in Grace's life and in her heart. But then Henry turns up to fix the boiler one evening, and Grace can't decide if she's hallucinating or has suddenly developed psychic powers. Grace isn't going mad - the man in front of her is not Henry at all, but someone else who looks uncannily like him. The hole in Grace's heart grows ever larger.

Grace becomes captivated by this stranger, Andy - to her, he is Henry, and yet he is not. Reminded of everything she once had, can Grace recreate that lost love with Andy, resurrecting Henry in the process, or does loving Andy mean letting go of Henry?

So I have to start by saying even though I knew what the book was about when I started to read the book it wasn't how I thought it would be however it’s definitely my type of book and I did enjoy reading it! This book is set in what I call ‘character chapters’ so each chapter jumps from character to character but it is very cleverly written and I found I didn’t get lost when this happened like I have in previous books.
I love how the main character in the book would pote…
