Blood Relatives
Blood Relatives
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating characters, and lots of tension, 20 Nov. 2015
This review is from: Blood Relatives (Kindle Edition)
A woman has been murdered, and it is the talk of the neighbourhood. Young lad, Rick, is on the deliveries for Corona in the Leeds area. Relationships build up with some of their customers, and Rick helps the lonely elderly who regard his visits as much more than the delivery of their drinks. Deliveries are slowed down by such momentous news, but also by washing strung across the roads.

Fascinating characters, and a clever building up of tension as events unfold.

Definitely worth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating insight into the lives of the English in Ceylon., 19 Nov. 2015
Gwendolyn Hooper is on her way to Ceylon to meet her new husband, Laurence, a tea planter. The descriptions of Ceylon and her new life there are so vivid you can almost feel the heat and smell the exotic aromas. Life is so different from her earlier life in England and at times Gwendolyn clearly does not behave in the way that is expected of her.

A fascinating insight into the lives of the English in Ceylon.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit long winded, 19 Nov. 2015
This review is from: City on Fire (Hardcover)
Interesting characters and story but a bit long winded, and could have benefited from some drastic editing.

With mixed race and disparate background relationships, gay and straight relationships, recreational drugs, unrequited love, violence - it is all there.

An interesting read

4.0 out of 5 stars A tense psychological thriller, 30 Aug. 2015
A psychological thriller which kept up the tension throughout, and kept me guessing until the end.

Justine leaves London to settle in Devon with her family. After a demanding career she plans to do nothing at all. Daughter Ellen seems to be happy at school until her friend George is expelled.

Strange anonymous phone calls become increasingly threatening and disturbing, and Justine’s husband Alex insists on involving the police.

An intriguing story, well worth the read, with some interesting twists.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ruby, secret agent, 30 Aug. 2015
Ruby Redfort is a highly intelligent and precocious teenage secret agent working for Spectrum. She is utterly fearless, and suffers several accidents as a result. Her code breaking skills are much in demand at Spectrum.
This was a delightful book, and I look forward to reading others in the series.

The Harder They Come
The Harder They Come
Price: £10.44

4.0 out of 5 stars A compelling read, 8 Aug. 2015
Carolee and Sten are cruise passengers on an outing from the ship in a bus driven fast and erratically by a local driver.

At a much needed rest stop a horrific incident terrifies the bus passengers, and Sten takes charge. His actions have major implications.

Sara does not acknowledge authority in any form, neither for herself or her beloved dog, Kutya, considering herself to be a free-born citizen, not to be ordered around by the ‘U.S. Illegitimate Government of America’. She is regularly in trouble with police as a result.

By chance Sara meets Sten’s son, Adam, a very mixed up young man, who models himself on John Colter from his history books. Despite the age difference, Adam likes Sara as ‘she was a shit-kicker and so was he’. To some extent they support each other and buy into each other’s warped outlooks on life. Their lives, and the lives of others, are turned upside down.

A compelling read, with lots of tension.

Wrong Place, Wrong Time
Wrong Place, Wrong Time
by Tilia Klebenov Jacobs
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.09

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of tension, 5 Aug. 2015
Tsara receives an unexpected invitation from her Uncle Cass, who she has not seen for decades due to a falling-out between Uncle Cass and her late father.

Wealthy Uncle Cass and family give employment to many in the nearby village so they are popular, but not with all. Jealousy, maybe?

Given the best suite in her uncle’s castle, Tsara is prepared to enjoy a magical no-expense-spared party.

Dinner and dancing go well and Tsara returns to her suite.

Then it all goes wrong!

Lots of tension as the story unfolds – a worthwhile read.

The Confectioner's Tale
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Secrets from the past, 4 Aug. 2015
Petra Stevenson is still mourning the loss of her beloved grandfather when she discovers that he kept secrets from her. An old photograph of her grandfather as a young man has the word ‘Clermont’ written on the back. To add to the mystery this photograph had clearly been hidden, in an envelope marked ‘Forgive me’. Petra sets out to discover what this means.

Her efforts are thwarted at every turn by her grandfather’s official biographer – who is determined to unearth any scandal.

Interspersed with her efforts are flashbacks to the era of the photograph, and the interesting characters and how their lives intertwine.

An interesting read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Curing Ebola - a fast paced thriller, 3 Aug. 2015

One vital ingredient is from a secret location which only Kiram and Mumbato know. Amanda wants the cure to be mass produced but cannot until she knows this location.
