Welcome to another weekly round-up of books I have read. Another good week on the reading front and plenty more to keep me going as we await this cold chill that is expected. I did manage an hour in the garden dead-heading…plants that is! Cut the last few rose blooms as well which smell amazing in the kitchen.
So, here is what I have read over the past week…
Newport Writers – An anthology of poetry and prose is a book I read for an upcoming Blog Tour. This is a collection of verse, short stories and flash fiction from a group of writers. There is a vast myriad of styles and content and there is definitely something for everyone in this anthology. Full review later this week.
Ross Greenwood is one of the authors whose books I will automatically read without even looking at the synopsis. The Cold Killer is the 4th book in the DI Barton series and wow, this one is a cracker. A murdered inmate, an increasing body count, more questions than answers and secrets from the past are just the tip of the iceberg in this latest hard-hitting thriller. The full review is at the end of the week.
The D.C. Maggie James series is a series that I have enjoyed from the very start. Dead Mercey by Noelle Holten is the 5th book in the series and is one that could be read as a stand-alone. This is a hard one for the team as wounds are still fresh from the previous book. Life has to continue and this latest case is another tough one that will call in various agencies and specialists. The full review will also be at the end of the week.
It was also time to catch up on some overdue NetGalley books. Greece Actually by Sue Roberts was ideal for some lighter reading and it was so nice to be taken to warmer shores with wonderful foods and locals. After I finished reading this book I had a virtual tour around the island of Skiathos. This is one for fans of romance and foreign destinations, a gorgeous story, a full review will follow soon.
As I wasn’t quite ready to return back the UK, I decided to stop over in France. Celebrations at the Chateau by Jo Thomas was a fabulous story, I do love this author’s books and this one is another wonderful one. A chateau, food, locals, cheese, recipes and a sitting tenant are just some of the things that Fliss and her two sisters find when they discover they have just inherited a chateau in Normandy that they knew nothing about. Another amazing read from Jo and one for romance and contemporary fiction fans. Again, the full review should be up soon.
That’s it for another week. Next weeks post will be the last one of November!!! Not long before I have to try and remember to change the year every time I write the date 😂
Have a fab week ahead,
Many thanks for reading my post, a like or share would be amazing 🙂 xx
