Mantequero by Jenny Twist
Mantequero by Jenny Twist

I was delighted to get hold of a review copy of this title. Jenny Twist spins a chilling yarn of a downtrodden sister, daughter and auntie attempting to escape her family's judgements at Christmas time with a spontaneous trip to southern Spain.

An insight into Spanish folk culture and a short story worthy of Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected, Ms Twist writes with confidence and flair. I really loved this tale and consider it a half hour extremely well spent. I'm looking forward to reading more of this author's work. So, if you have a spare moment, you can't go wrong with Mantequero!

I was very lucky to get hold of a review copy of this work. This story of a modern day Cadfael who believes in family, love, honour and safety takes us into the underground world of Spooks fighting organised crime on Sam Duncan's journey to find his missing sister.

Laced with both tension, fear, humour and warmth Mac Logan writes in a fast-paced and to the point style to produce an excellent thriller. The sporadic violence is written in a tasteful, non-gory fashion generating just the right amount of horror to keep the story realistic. The Scottish flavour adds an attractive exoticism for a northern isles novice from down south.

I rarely read thrillers though I can… Read more

It's the 80s and Carol & Bev have finished their degrees and are aimlessly looking for their next adventure. They stumble across an advert offering jobs as Bunny Girls in a London casino.

With a simple and fresh humour Bev Spicer brings us this light-hearted tale of youth and frivolity that brings those wonderful years of freedom flooding back! In addition it gives an interesting insight into the behind the scenes of the famous Playboy organisation.

Spicer's writing is confident and fluent. Rather excitingly, this is the first of a number of works by her already on the market, including 'One Summer in France', the prequel to 'Bunny on a Bike' only recently published… Read more
