A Haunting at Holkham by Anne Glenconner #BookReview #HistoricalMystery

On Wednesday this week I go into hospital for my second hip replacement, 5 months after the first. I’m dreading the process and yet also impatient to have both over and done with. Depending on how things go, I may, or may not, be around on my blog for a bit. I’m hoping to feel […]

Marcia is holding a sale on all books in her Wake-Robin Ridge series – if you haven’t read them yet (and if not, why not?) grab the chance right now – they are fantastic reading: heart-warming, horrifying, scary (in parts) and set in the most awesome scenery. If you aren’t yet familiar with these, take […]

#BookReview – ANITA BLAKE VAMPIRE HUNTER #2 – THE LAUGHING CORPSE by Laurell K Hamilton #FantasyHorror #zombies

I am still reading through the omnibus edition of the first 3 books in the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series – there are at least 24 books to date – and loving it. Horror is not my usual genre, but these are so well written with Anita’s humanity and principles clearly to the forefront despite […]

#Bookreview GUILTY PLEASURES by Laurell K. Hamilton #UrbanFantasy #Vampires

Back to work this week, so just a quick book review. I read this some years ago as part one of an omnibus edition of the first three in the series, ANITA BLAKE, VAMPIRE HUNTER. Having decided to have a paperback clear out, I wanted to read the rest of the book before adding it […]

#BookReview EVENTIDE by @MaeClair1 #supernatural #ghosts

As promised, my review of Hode’s Hill #3, EVENTIDE. The speed with which I devoured this series says it all. Blurb The darkness is coming . . . The old house near Hode’s Hill, Pennsylvania is a place for Madison Hewitt to start over—to put the trauma of her husband’s murder, and her subsequent breakdown, […]

#BookReview END OF DAY by @MaeClair1 #Supernatural #Ghosts

I really know when I’ve hit a series I love – it’s the only time I read as fast as I did, speeding through the Hode’s Hill books without pause. Here is my review of book #2, END OF DAY, and if you missed my review of book #1, CUSP OF NIGHT, you can catch […]

#BookReview CUSP OF NIGHT by @MaeClair1 #paranormal #ghosts

I thought the Hode’s Hill series would be a little out of my usual reading pattern, but with its mix of mystery and suspense, plus a goodly dollop of the supernatural, it soon had me hooked. Here is my review of the first instalment, CUSP OF NIGHT. I’ve just finished the second, and started the […]

#BookReview – The Emissary 3: Love Hurts, by Marcia Meara #paranormal

You can read my reviews of the earlier instalments here: The Emissary The Emissary 2: To Love Somebody And so we reach part 3: Love Hurts… The Emissary 3: Love Hurts by Marcia Meara My rating: 5 of 5 […]

#BookReview – STORM BORN by Richelle Mead #UrbanFantasy

Whilst unpacking boxes following the grand move, I realised just how many un-read paperbacks I own, so I decided to read one! Hence, this review is for a traditionally published book by an author I already know I enjoy. Just before plunging into the fray, to make you even more jealous (as if you weren’t […]

#BookReview THE LIGHT: WAKE-ROBIN RIDGE #4 by Marcia Meara #supernatural #murdermystery

How are you all doing out there? Reading more? For me it’s a time of rediscovering my creative writing mojo – I’ve finally begun The Five Kingdoms book #4 – yay!!! 2019 was such a horrendous year for me, I could only write non-fiction. I must be one of the few who can honestly say […]
