Hello and welcome to another weekly update of books I have read over the past week. It is a day earlier than usual as I have another busy week ahead with reviews to publish.
Here is what I have read…
I have several books on my kindle by Jim Ody, however, his latest book The Crazy Season is the first one I have read, I do plan on changing this as The Crazy Season was a fabulous read. A strange email, mentions of a curse, murders and two wonderful truth hunting characters make this an intriguing and suspenseful read. My full review will be part of the upcoming Blog Tour.
What an absolute pleasure it was to return to Heritage Cove as I read Summer Serendipity at the Twist and Turn Bakery by Helen Rolfe. This is the 3rd book in the series and it is set in, yeah you guessed it, the bakery. The story focuses on Jade, one of the owners of the bakery. Another wonderful escapism read that I adored with a wonderful sense of community and some fabulous descriptions.
From warm and sweet I then delved into the cold and frozen with Adam Croft and his latest book In Cold Blood, the third book in his Rutland Crime Series. A relatively quick read at around 230 pages but it is packed full as DI Caroline Hills and her team try to find the truth behind a frozen body under the viaduct. A tense, snappy police procedural that I really enjoyed.
What an absolutely stunning Young Adult book What Beauty There Is by Cory Anderson was. It was such a wonderful book to immerse into and one that had such beautiful, almost lyrical writing. A story of youth, full of danger and mystery. One that I adored from start to finish, my full review will follow.
The synopsis for Comatose by Jane Badrock is short, snappy and very intriguing. A car crash, two victims, one survivor is just the start of this police procedural. DS Karen Thorpe has her work cut out for her with this investigation as she hits many brick walls. A mysterious and highly addictive crime thriller that I will share as part of the upcoming blog tour.
This is a book for those who like photographic art and images of structures with a historical presence. Abandoned London: Discover the hidden secrets of the city in photographs by Katie Wignall is a collection of 150 images of buildings, structures, machinery from the past. They lie forgotten and unloved. This was a wonderful and yet quite a sad book to flick through, I say flick but I did have a PDF copy via NetGalley and I do think it would be much nicer to have it as a physical book. I really enjoyed this book and it is one I would definitely recommend.
Well there you go,
Happy reading and have a wonderful week ahead.
Many thanks for reading my post, a like or share would be amazing 🙂 xx
