Recently read and enjoyed…

This summer’s ultra-hot weather means I’ve spent more time lazing around on my balcony than I might have, a glass of something by my side and my kindle to hand.
Most of the books I read are crime fiction of one sort or another. The following are some of my four or five star reads, and we’ll have more another time too.
In no particular order…



Jane Isaac’s new series looks like being a real cracker. I loved the fact that this time, the main character is the Family Liason Officer.






The Perfect Friend kept me guessing right to the end. Secrets, lies, family dynamics – and a very clever plot.






This is a must-read for thriller fans – especially those who, like me, are mothers of sons… An intriguing story of family life.






Katharine Johnson takes us to lovely Tuscany in The Secret, and from the background of WW2 to the present day. The sights and sounds of Italy…






Last but not least, we have Merciless. Heleyne Hammersley has been on the blog with the fabulous photos which inspired one of her standalone novels. Merciless is the second in her detective series, but it can easily be read as a standalone too.




Book news: It’s been best seller orange flag week for my books on Amazon. Each of the novellas has now had one, and yesterday I was particularly pleased to find my first ever on Amazon US. Well done, Chosen Child.

And this feels like a good place to mention that Chosen Child is now on a 99p/c US/UK deal – until Tuesday, you can have it for WAY less than the price of a coffee… Just sayin’… 🙂
